Yes, after sixteen months of thinking about it, worrying about it, and planning it, we are finally living it! The girls and I arrived Saturday morning, and were greeted by the two of the men in our family (one being canine). Recovery from the jet lag has been slow this time (one sleeps soooo much better in business class, you know) but today we are almost feeling human again. We have made the required trip to BHV for light bulbs, nails, hooks, and a dog leash (somehow Sawyer arrived without his), and have also picnicked in the Bois de Boulogne and walked the streets in twilight. Tonight we will eat dinner at the top of the George Pompidou Centre, a restaurant which is said to have a fabulous view of the city.
The apartment is slowly coming together. Our air shipment should arrive some time this week, and then we can have the super-handyman come and hang light fixtures, pictures, drapes, and put together the entertainment center. Oh yeah, and then I will also have to find a place to put ten more pairs of shoes…..
Enjoy the photos!
