A bientot, France!

Our bags are packed (8 in total! Wowza!), we’ve cleaned our apartment (not an easy task), and we’ve donated our remaining books and clothes.

I’ve had my last pain au chocolat, eaten my last wonderful Parisian meal, packed some wine and cheese to bring home for Christmas gifts, and am snacking on my last baguette with terrine de canard, along with a nice glass of Bordeaux, as I write this post.

For all intents and purposes, we’re officially ready to move back to the U.S.

But, although we’re looking forward to being home (especially for Christmas), it’s going to be very hard to say goodbye to France, a country that we’ve truly fallen in love with this year…and have learned to call our “home away from home.”

It really has been the most amazing year of our lives.

So, instead of saying, “Au revoir” to France, I’ll say “A bientot!” (We hope to see you again really soon!)
