Happy News!

We found out a few days ago that our French Visas were approved and come January 31st we'll be moving to Paris for a year! I bought our one-way nonrefundable tickets today so it is official. It is so strange to me that all you have to do to move to France is to do it. That sounds funny but I sort of thought someone would stop us and tell us we can't. The last few years have been rough since we've dealt with Roman's surgeries and the stress of medical bills so I'm really looking forward to a year of slowing down, spending time with my family, and experiencing the "joie de vivre" of France. photo from Flickr (and actually its from Italy) but I liked the photo. Paul will continue to paint and freelance as a designer and I will continue as a freelance writer/blogger. We were happily surprised to find out that rent is actually cheaper in Paris than in San Francisco!

    Congratulations! You must be thrilled. I'm thinking of doing the same but from London to NYC for 6 months and yes – when you start planning it you realise, oh, this can be done! And it'll work out cheaper for me too, win.

    I look forward to reading all about it! If you want a London contact, I'm here. (Well, if I'm not in NYC. ;p)
