Au Revior Texas, Howdy France!

The time is finally here!!! We are moving TODAY!

After 2 weeks of stress, anxiety, and tears it is time to board the plane that will change my life.  This whole goodbye process has been a lot tougher than I imagined, but Logan has been a huge support and I feel very blessed that I will have him and his family by my side during this transition.  I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us over the next couple of years.

Things we have accomplished in 2 weeks:
  • Selling our 2 cars in 4 days on Craiglist! 
  • Purchasing a year's supply of contacts 
  • Moving Leslie Mayemba (a close family friend) into Baylor for her Fall study abroad program
  • Getting a power of attorney set up to do our wire transfers while we are abroad
  • Closing out credit cards, insurance, and cell phones (I am going to miss my number! I have had it since I was 16.... ) 
  • Purchased a new Mac Book & iPod touch 
  • Purged about 40% of my clothes
  • Fit our life into 6 suitcases more or less (Hey visitors- we will be sending you with an extra duffle bag in exchange for a really cute chalet in Central France!) :) 
  • Purchased plug adaptors and stocked up on basics that we need - deodorant, contact solution, etc.
  • Went through ALL of my childhood keepsakes to figure out what to keep and what to throw out
  • Put everything we wanted to come home to, in STORAGE (furniture, wedding gifts, appliances, etc.) 
  • 2 goodbye parties and more than I can count Happy Hours, lunch dates, & dinner dates. 
Thanks to technology, we will be ALL OVER Facebook, Skype, and Twitter.

I am so ready to explore the unknown and share our adventure with you! 

A Bientot!
Mrs. Frenchy
