Well, we’ve been back in the US for over a month now and I’m not really sure why I haven’t been posting. I’ve definitely had plenty of time. Instead I’ve been watching a lot of trashy TV (which really isn’t any different from when we lived in Paris). Somehow they’ve all taken trips to Paris recently (seriously the Kardashians, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Anthony Bourdain!), so it hasn’t really helped me get over leaving France. Sometimes I try to think about all the things I didn’t like about Parisian life, like the smell, our horrible bed, six flights of stairs, and no smoke detectors, but then I look back through our pictures and realize just how lucky we were (are!). It’s nice having more space and a yard for Henry, but I’d take our little 260 sqft apartment back in a second.
We crammed in a lot of fun activities before we left Paris, including a 4-day trip to Normandy, so I’ll share all of that very soon. Until then, here are a few pictures of Henry taking in some last-minute sights before we left.
