I was so excited to come back to the blog this week. But before I continue, it just didn't feel right to go forward without saying something. Given the circumstances in France at this time, I felt something needed to be said. In the last two years that Nick and I have spent traveling in unknown lands and navigating new cultures, we have been met with nothing but kindness and had the chance to make friends from all over the world. I am convinced that everywhere a person goes, finding something in common with your fellow man is really just a short conversation away. We had the opportunity to go to Paris just a month ago. The city and the people were amazing. We were horrified to hear of the recent terror attacks. Paris really is a wonderful place, full of wonderful people and we wish the best for all of our fellow life travellers there.
