Happy Friday, friends!
Thank you so much for your very kind response and incredible support to my wanting to change my blog to a new focus! Your kind comments touched me and made me incredibly excited and very hopeful about this change, and hope you will stick around!
Apparently this is the year for change, because I actually have another exciting bit of news to share! As if having a baby and completely revamping my blog wasn't enough...
Last week we took passport photos of Fox (these are the outtakes... taking a straight-on picture of a baby is tough, but isn't he cute!?)
I am curious how cooking will go while we are over there because the darling flat that we are renting is tiny and doesn't have an oven... Guess you guys will be seeing a lot of stove-top type dishes and salads. I hope that is okay. I mentioned to Adam that not having an oven means I won't be able to make bread while we are over there. He said "Landen, we are going to the bread capitol of the world. We can buy amazing bread while we are there." Oooooh, right... Guess that solves that problem.
Has anyone ever been to Lyon? I had heard of it, but didn't know anything about it until we found out we might get to go! I am curious if loads of people have been and I haven't ever heard about it. Last year when we went to Norway, suddenly people who had visited or were visiting popped up everywhere!
Here is what I know already:
1. Apparently it is the food capitol of France (at least traditionally). Paris is up and coming currently, in the restaurant scene, I guess, which thrills me, because hopefully I will be able to try some tasty food!
2. There is a super awesome park with a zoo scattered throughout it.
3. There is the most charming-looking section of town that is considered "Old Lyon"
4. I have become addicted to looking at Airbnb listings in Lyon. This one is probably my favorite. (Also, looking at Airbnb a lot lately has really made me want to be a cleaner housekeeper with less stuff. Spaces look so much bigger and lovelier when they don't have loads of junk tucked in every corner... Currently, I am definitely guilty of that)
5. I read somewhere that many fewer people speak English in Lyon than in Paris, so I am definitely going to have to brush up on my French!
6. There is this AMAZING looking market there called Les Halles de Lyon with just about everything you could want there. I am super excited to check it out!
Please email me or comment with what you know about Lyon... if anything.
