My Top Five Adventures in Connecticut

It’s official. We have a date! We have visas!  We have flights! Yup, that about sums up how we are feeling. Our visas finally arrived Wednesday so that means we’ll be hopping on a plane tonight and heading to our new home in Toulouse! While we were in Connecticut a bit longer than we originally anticipated, we…

God Bless America!

If all goes well (as in we get our visas back!), within the next week we’ll be headed to France. We are excited about our trip and the amazing experiences we believe it will afford us. We’ll see new sights, meet new people and experience new cultures. I’m sure we’ll also gain new appreciation for the freedoms and…

A Bite of Boston

When you think of food in Boston, what comes to mind? Lobster? Chowder? Boston Cream Pie? How about tapas?

The walk from our hotel to this restaurant took us past some gorgeous Victorian brownstone buildings and…

Heading into the Home Stretch

Today marks a milestone in our journey. Well, actually tomorrow will, but today we head to Atlanta so we can complete the final stage of securing our work visas–interviews with the French Consulate. That means, if all goes well, in two weeks we’ll be on a plane to France. There’s only one song that can…

The Jerk and the Lobster

Today officially marks the one month anniversary of us moving out of Atlanta. More importantly, it also marks five months since I said, “I do” to the most amazing man I’ve ever met. When we first started dating, I don’t think either of us could have anticipated the adventure we’d be on so soon into our…

Connecticut through the Grape Vine

Wine yesterday, coffee today, beer tomorrow. Well, the wine was actually about two weeks ago on the Saturday before we left for Miami, but it was part of a fun afternoon that deserves mention in this blog. That day actually started bright and early as we traveled to Meriden, CT for their annual Daffodil Festival….
