A Change of Plans

Good morning all,

Guess what? We're headed back to the United States tomorrow. My husband has a meeting and we'll be spending a few weeks with my parents.

The timing was "great" because there is some unavoidable maintenance that must be performed on our apartment here in Paris, and we would have had to pack up and stay somewhere else anyway. Strange how the universe works things out sometimes, huh?

We're not sure about our return at the moment, but in the meantime, I'll introduce you to Lancaster, PA--a place I once couldn't wait to escape, but have come to love.

We have an early flight tomorrow, so I'm busy packing. Have a lovely day!

Cheryl –

It’s mixed emotions at the moment. We miss family and friends, but Spring is blooming to life here! We had four weeks left, and those would have been the nicest.

We’re taking the boys to the carousel and for ice cream later and will soak up every last second.

Good luck with your trip home with the boys and getting everything ready. I wish you the best of luck as you figure out your future plans and hope your heart is not too heavy with leaving.

Leah –

I just returned with huge bags of treats. I’ve abandoned some worn out sweaters to fit everything.

I hope you are back in time to enjoy the beautiful spring in Paris. But I’m looking forward to my trip to the US from here in Germany. I need to see the sun and nothing gray. Safe travels!

Sarah – Yes!

We’ll be in Montclair sometime later this week for haircuts (desperate), a trip to the bank, and to your basement. ;)

I will let you know asap.

I guess everything does happen for a reason. You’ll be leaving with that suitcase of treats, a computer full of amazing photos, some great stories and wonderful memories.

Planning a trip to Montclair at all?

I’m sad because I was living vicariously through you and your time in Paris, but I know you’ll have great adventures where ever you end up. Have a good trip.
