I feel obliged to begin this post with: Bonjour! Greetings from Paris, France, our new home for the next couple of years! It has been a whirlwind to say the least – we flew direct from Houston, which was great save for the teething 6 month old part. That little element has been a not-so-fun challenge during the first part of our stay here. But it’s all good – adds a little spice to life! We had our inaugeral meal with one of my best friends who lives here – Susan, at a little bistro literally around the corner from our temporary housing. It was fantastic. She greeted us at our hotel apartment with two bottles of champagne and we each ordered a tasting menu at dinner. It was so yummy and fun to test what little French I know at dinner.

The last few days have been a blur of short sleeping stints and metro rides and hangouts with Susan and a little site seeing and LOTS of walking. This post will be short and sweet because things have not slowed down enough to really sit and write but I at least wanted to share a few iPhone photos! I still haven’t taken my “real” camera for a spin – but rest assured you will be photobombed when I do.

Here are some photos from the last few days – a view from our temporary housing in La Defense, which is sort of the corporate part of town where Connor’s office is stationed//We have been taking the metro and trying to learn how all the lines connect// Susan has a beautiful apartment with chevron flooring// Connor being a Parisian dad <3// Our little site seeing adventure to the Louvre yesterday.

I can’t wait to share more. I keep walking around with my jaw open and thinking “Is this really happening?”
