Create your own video slideshow at animoto.com.
By the time many of you see this video, we will be on a plane, winging our way back across the Atlantic to our home in Washington, DC. While I'm sad that our Parisian adventure is over and cannot watch this video without welling up, my heart is filled with joy from the amazing experiences we've had and the many wonderful friends we've made.
In writing this blog, I've been purposefully oblique about many details of my family life. The video finally reveals some of these, including photos of our neighborhood, my children, my husband, and yes, even one of me. As for the song choice, it's not a bit Parisian but the words seemed to capture what I most want to say to those with whom I spent time here and to Paris herself.
I remain undecided as to whether I will continue to blog back in DC. But if I do, I'll post here to let you know where to find me. In any case, my thanks to everyone who has followed along with our adventure. It was my pleasure to write about the experience of being an American in Paris and I'm honored that so many of you seemed to enjoy it just as much.
