In August of 2010, I moved to Paris. Well, more accurately, to Puteaux, which is just across the Seine from Paris proper on the west side. I came to be a “Granny-Nanny” to Aidan and Angéle, then 2 and 4. It has been almost 4 years now, and I still can’t believe I actually live here.
My French is improving, although it still gets me into trouble now and then. I’m having a great time with the children and their parents, and I feel like the luckiest person on earth.
I miss my families back in the States – Chris, Mackenzie and CJ, Greg, Sofia and Carmen, Laura, Jim, Alyssa, Kaitlyn, Chase and Cole and of course, Auntie Susie and Auntie Mimi. And I miss my friends in Portland, too. But, holey-moley, I live in Paris!
