entering the world of unemployment: greetings from Paris

Bonjour Bloggers!

I wasn't sure if I would get internet connection, but it turns out I do!

So ... here I am writing you from France. 

E and I have been adventuring all over France for the past week. 
We've made it to Notre Dame, The Luve, Versailles, the top of the Eiffel Tower, the Arche de Triomphe, Mont St. Michel, and the WW2 D-Day beaches in Normandy.

We've dined on macarones (they sell those in McDonalds here ... heaven), french onion soup, escargot, creme brulee, fondue, fish in a heavy cream sauce, lots of baguettes, lots of cheese, crepes,  chocolate croissants, organina, and beef bourguignon.

I don't want to spend  too much time of here, but I did want to say hello.

Now I need to get to packing ... in the morning we will say au revoir to France, and ciao to Italy. 

If this last picture doesn't convince you to visit France ... then I don't know what will.

Rachel! Wow! It looks like you guys are having an amazing time! Soooooo jealous! Kyle and I have a trip to Europe in our 2-5 year plan - and you've just convinced me that maybe I should move it up to NOW! I hope Italy is just as wonderful!
