In the window of our first Paris apartment. Taken by Lily on our last day in Paris, June 14, 2008.
We left Paris in mid-June and I haven’t had the chance to update my blog until now. My apologies! Despite the heat, New York has been treating us well. The internet is hooked up, we have a bed as of this morning, and the a/c is installed and working. Whew! What more does one need?
Saying goodbye to Paris was bittersweet. We are excited about starting a new chapter in New York and with a baby, but it was hard to leave our old life â?? and especially our dear friends â?? behind. Getting a sofa bed is a top priority so that we can have plenty of visitors in the coming months!
The following is my farewell ode to Paris, in pictures.
