Here are a few of the highlights of the last month...
Remi totally surprised me with an outing to celebrate my ten year anniversary in France. I thought we were going to visit some friends for lunch but in fact he'd arranged for my good friend Caroline to watch Juliette while he and I went out to lunch (Italian- my favorite). A very lovely way to celebrate and a touching moment. Here you see us all together when we joined Caro and Juju in town after lunch. She was a fabulous babysitter, too!
Another Sunday we visited a war cemetery around here (there are tons) from the First World War. It so wasn't Juliette's thing but was a nice outing anyway.
She's also mastering writing her first name (though her alphabet kit only had one T and E).
And finally a bit of art I put up in the bedroom made with some fabric samples and cheap Ikea frames.
Nothing very extraordinary going on, but after my intense year of studying and stressing, I truly enjoy the down-time and being able to enjoy the little things.
