A few weeks back
we went to a fair near the Louvre.
The views from the enclosed
ferris wheel were amazing.
Will in his bubble.
(again, while we were living in the hotel)
we drove through the Loire valley.
We visited the Chateau de Chambord.
It was beautiful
and nice to get out of the city for the day.
Now, our days and weekends
are spent getting settled
going to work/school
putting Ikea stuff together.
Those days of living out of suitcases
and eating every meal out
are still very fresh in my memory.
They were not easy days
but we felt like tourists.
We were on vacation.
Now, real life is settling in.
we live in Paris.
And it's beautiful
and a fabulous experience for all of us.
we still have to live our lives.
I'm still dealing with curfews
and a traveling husband
and what to make for dinner.
I'm just dealing with them
in an amazing place!
Here is a peek into Hannah's room.
Our flat is partially furnished.
We did not ship our furniture here
as we were allowed only a certain amount of crates.
So, I carefully decided what was to be shipped and what
I wanted to put in storage for the next 3 years.
I left one and a half crates empty
because I knew I would want to shop here and
bring some things home with us.
The flat came with beds
but we decided to buy new ones for the kids.
I bought all new sheets/comforters/pillows
back in the states and shipped them here.
Steve spent most of this past weekend
putting together Hannah's bed, desk, chair
lamps, clothes rack.
We love how it came out!
