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.
Thank you for sharing your insights over these past four years, I've read them regularly, but only commented a few times. The adjustment to being back home shouldn't be too hard, but a part of you will always be in Paris and something of Paris will always be with you wherever you go. Best wishes to you and your family.
I must have walked past his office many times! (Its on the way back to my hotel) I have the same shot on my camera in all the seasons

I will miss your posts about Paris. Bon voyage!
Tears as you leave and tears as you come back 'home' to the states...I am sad that you won't be blogging from Paris anymore....but at the same time excited for you as you start this next chapter in your life..........
As an Arlingtonian of 2 decades' standing, I can testify that there is absolutely no view like this one -- although the view from the Custis-Lee mansion toward DC is pretty spectacular. Not many offices there, though.
I second the views of those who have more eloquently said good-bye. Your posts have been daily required reading for me for the past couple of years. Godspeed to you & your family.
Wow...what a view!
I often take that walk from Richelieu Drouot. Amazing when you look up and see it!
That's a beautiful view.
When I visited Paris I stayed at a hotel near Gare Du Nord Station and the view from my hotel room was also similar to this!
Btw, in Paris, this app helped me out so good in Paris, you should check this out! Its an offline Metro RER map so I saved pretty much on Taxi and got lotta info on Tourist Places! And its really a cheap app too!!!
Aw this view is so familiar to me too. I worked in Paris two years ago and this was my view when I walked from my apartment in Grandes Boulevards to Opera. Thanks for sharing!
A great photo. I worked in Paris two years ago and saw this view when I walked from my apartment in Grandes Boulevard to Opera, amazing thanks for sharing!
