My new Parisian BFF

It's true. I have a new best friend who recently moved here from Paris. (If you have known me for more than one nano second you will know that I am only slightly obsessed with Paris and London. I may or may not be eyeing that Eiffel Tower Tree topper in the Pottery Barn Christmas catalog).

OK. That's not really true. But, I did meet a lady from Paris about my age the other day when we were at the train museum. She was there with her husband and 2 year old little boy. (Yes we are that nerdy that we spend Saturdays at train museums and such while every one else watches football.)

She said she moved here because they wanted to be able to have a house and because of the climate. Of course I really wanted to say "SERIOUSLY?!?! You left Paris and the best place you all could come up with was Georgia?" Instead we talked a little about our kids and I listened to her barely two year old son speak both French and English. He got double cute points for that.

Anyway, I was going to pull out the whole "hey, we should switch houses like in the movie 'The Holiday', but decided that might be slightly creepy. So, I was going to settle for being BFF's (best friends forever), but it was our turn to climb aboard to the train.

Maybe next time.

The twins and Ella with Daddy. Such a rare treat to have a picture with everyone actually looking at the camera)

My beauty queens and the little engineer

My kids seriously have the most awesome dad ever. They are so lucky. (He's a pretty fabulous husband as well)
Anyway, I was soooooo close to getting that much closer to moving to Europe, but it looks like we might be sweltering in the South for awhile longer. Le Sigh.

I'm currently taking donations for this tree topper ;)

What a fun family day; this made me smile. Also, I went to GA for a family vacation two summers ago and loved, loved, loved it! We were in Savannah and Tybee Island and I would love to return. Care to swap houses with me in IN? Not quite Paris, but if you squint your eyes the cornfields and windmills might look like the Eiffel tower. ;)
