We've been back here in the States for just over a year. We spent a lot of time in limbo and my in-laws were more than patient and generous with us in giving us a home for a huge chunk of time. We had a sojourn in Columbus, Ohio for a few months due to husbands job. We have some dear friends there so our time in the Buckeye state was brief but very enjoyable. Said friends introduced us to Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream. If you are ever in Columbus (or Nashville, apparently they have it there, too), do yourself a favor and experience Jeni's. Apparently they carry a couple of flavors at our local Whole Foods; my waistline weeps at this news.

The wonderful thing is that State ships 700lbs of UAB (unaccompanied baggage) to your temporary apartment so we were able to bring some things that make it feel like home...like the munchkin's toys, some of our own towels and linens, and - most importantly for moi - kitchen items. I have missed my Le Creusets! The rest of our things have been safely put away in storage to await our departure next August.

It's Friday, I've had a crazy week and my brain craves some rest. Next time I'll give you all the exciting details on where we're heading next!
Hope everyone had a spook-tacular Halloween. Tinkerbell visited us...she was adorable.
Bon weekend, tout le monde!
