It is finally time for me to let you all know...
Our plan was to move this November and due to certain circumstances, our move has been pushed up 7 months to APRIL.
We are a big mix of emotions: excited, scared, stressed, sad, disappointed, overwhelmed, and hopeful all at the same time.
Leaving France is going to be bittersweet. This is Logan's home and has become my home. We started our little family here and it feels like just yesterday that I put the finishing touches on Stella's precious nursery.
Because France is such a HUGE part of Logan's life and our family, we are going to make it a goal to come back and visit every other year. We really want the French culture to be engrained in our children. We want them to be familiar with the country, the cultures, the people, and the language. Logan will continue to speak only French with Stella after we move back and we have invested in a lot of French children's books to read to her as well.
Please send your thoughts and prayers our way as we make this transition... Moving back is a leap of faith. We are basically hitting the "reset" button and starting from scratch moving back...WITH a baby! No cars, no place to live, Logan doesn't have a job lined up, and I am starting 2 new side businesses that will hopefully allow me to work from home. I can't wait to share both of those with you all in the coming weeks.
Although this is bittersweet for us, I am so glad to be closer to my family and all of my best friends. I am happy the language barrier will not be an issue, that I can go get a pedicure whenever I please, there will be a Starbucks on every corner, I can run to Target with Stella, and grab a Friday night movie (IN ENGLISH) with my husband after dropping Stella off at the grandparents for the evening.
I would never trade this experience for anything, but it sure will feel good to be back home.
A Bientôt Texas!
XO, Stella Rose
