Bye Bye Laguna Beach, à bientôt...

This is it, the boxes are shipped, bags mostly packed, dogs have their passports and we, well mostly me, are frazzled.  I can hardly believe that the time has almost arrived that we will be making the voyage across the world to our next chapter in Provence, France.  After 10 years in Laguna Beach, I realize that the time here has been a significant one in my life.  Leaving my family in Vermont and venturing out west on my own, I established much of my adult life in CA.  Beginning a new career and life in an unknown area, that trip so long ago was the start of another chapter at that time in my life.  Laguna is where I met my husband, where we bought our first home together and where we met the most loving, wonderful friends.  Our friends are what make Laguna home and the most amazing place to live.  Beautiful memories abound.  So as we approach our next destination, excited at what lies ahead but also slightly bittersweet to leave our life here, we know that without change we cannot advance.  New slate and new beginnings.

À bientôt Laguna and dear friends, see you on the other side of the pond…
