Jonathan, Edmond, and I are home after four nights away, road trippin’ it to New Orleans (with a stop in Montgomery on the way home). I’ll confess that Jonathan and I were super nervous about the prospect of having Edmond in the car for 8 hours each way — two or three weeks ago Edmond developed a…… Continue reading a second babymoon

We’re home! We were met at the airport by our parents, our brothers (Chris, Eli, Joe), their women (Gypsy and Tracey), our new niece Willow who is a little doll baby, Daniel and Jordan and Savannah and Carina. Then we all came back to my parents house where we got to hold the baby, and…… Continue reading And 26 hours of travel later…
Yesterday we hosted all of my co-workers, along with Betty Forestier and Hanna, to a crepe feast. Jonathan made 3 batches of crepes, enough for a small army. Tonight, we went to Buck Mulligan’s and met some of my co-workers for a final farewell. They’re all such wonderful individuals and I’ve enjoyed getting to meet…… Continue reading n°1, 94 boulevard Ernest Dalby and other farewells…

Friday afternoon we arrived in the town of Argentan for Les Yéyés en Normandie. It is an annual music festival/party started by Pierre-Charles Goupil and held on his family’s farm. For 20 euro each, guests are privy to unlimited beer, food, and music for an entire weekend. This year, there were around 130 people in…… Continue reading Les Yéyés en Normandie!
I cannot explain how sad Jonathan and I were to leave Paris. We love this town. Friday morning, we added a love-lock to Pont des Arts before having coffee at Le Voltaire and continuing on to the Musée d’Orsay, my all-time favorite museum. Then it was time to say au revoir to Paris! We boarded a train…… Continue reading Last days in Paris (part two)!
