It wasn't my day yesterday. I had to do battle with my bank, experienced my second sweet potato failure of the week, and got caught in a wet sleet without a hat or umbrella. But then I rounded the corner and saw this.
For a long time, we were just another typical Washington, DC family: two policy-oriented jobs, two kids, and two cars. Out of the blue, my husband got a new assignment; we ditched the old jobs and the cars (but kept the kids) and headed to Paris for what started out to be a three-year, and eventually became a four-year tour.
