Je suis reconnaissant, I am grateful

Je suis reconnaissant, I am grateful

On Friday ┬ánight, Eric and I watched and read the updates coming out of Paris with heavy hearts. ┬áIt is always horrible to hear these stories, and even more so when you have been to that place of destruction and hurt. Add to that the attacks in Lebanon and other events unfolding throughout the world and it can seem like there is no hope. But, as we know, you must hold out for that little sliver of hope to survive…

Views on AirBnB so far…

Planning a upcoming trip to Europe, I decided that we would be better off staying in an AirBnB instead of in a hotel.
