We're off!

We only got as far as the airport yesterday. Storms across the eastern seaboard caused massive delays/cancellations. Our flights got rebooked for the next day, so we had to find a hotel at the airport. Today will be (another) long day traveling.

Oh...and until the day we left, we still didn't know if we'd have a place to stay once we arrived. The French bank has been moving at a glacial pace, and our original closing date of July 2nd kept getting pushed back and back....the notaire (real estate attorney) told us a few days ago that we might not be able to close until August 8th.  Eric pushed back and played every sympathy card possible (4 young children, nowhere to stay, etc.). Yesterday morning the good news arrived: we have an apartment!

We've also never had so much luggage before. Usually we have 2 checked bags and 2 carryons for our whole family. I have no idea how we are going to transport everything from the airport to our apartment. We live on a pedestrian-only street in a mainly pedestrian-only area of town....


  1. Good luck with the rest of your move, hopefully you've gotten all the headaches out of the way already.

  2. Bon Voyage! Looking forward to hearing all about your French adventures.

  3. We had something very similar last year when we emigrated from the UK to New Zealand. Three children, aged 3, 1 and 3 months and 10 suitcases. Needless to say we weren't shy in accepting offers of help!!

    Bon voyage!

  4. Can't wait to read more about your life in France:)

  5. Bon voyage et bonne chance!
