Pray for Paris

It’s been a crazy few days over here for our crew. We were in Paris on Friday, and decided to leave just hours before the attacks. I don’t think I’ve ever been so grateful in all my life. What a horrible tragedy. We have no TV out here in the country and so I’m getting bits of news on my phone. What I’ve seen is heartbreaking and it feels like 9/11 all over again! I am just praying that this is the end of the attacks and for everyone involved to find peace.




I am lucky enough to have dear friends and family who care about us and received over 100 texts, phone calls, Facebook messages and Instagram comments making sure we were all ok. I feel so much love and gratitude for my circle of humans, even the ones I’ve never physically met. The internet is really an amazing thing.

I have weeks worth of catching up on here, but I wanted to share a bit of our home here in the French countryside. It is lovely and remote and just what our family needs right now. Paul has left for a business trip back in the states, so we are here in France floundering with our French. Already missing my translator! We have only been here for 2 days and already we’ve fed the chickens and pigs, collected eggs and our host took my older two to a dairy to pick up milk where they saw 2 day old calves! Abbi took some pictures for me.

Le Petit Logis Dog

We’ve adopted the family dog! He loves me since I fed him chicken from the back door of the house! I know the way to a dog’s heart!

Our host is amazing and has bikes of all sizes so all my kids have a bike to ride, which they’ve really been missing!

But the best part about France so far is definitely the FOOD! I’m saving that for a whole separate post, but I’m giving you a sneak peak! I can’t wait to share more of our life in France for the next month!
