Time is passing quickly...

Another beautiful view of the sunset outside of our windows.
Oreo crawled onto my back and decided it was time for a nap.

It's hard to believe that we will be leaving France 3 months from today! Where has the time went?? I'm not quite ready to go back to the states, and Chris feels the same. Yes, there are things we miss there, but there are SO many things we will miss here too.

Chris & I sat down the other day and made a list of things we want to do and see before we leave France. Our list is quite long, and I know we won't be able to fit it all in, but we are going to do our best.

We are both looking forward to Chris' parents and Aunt coming to visit in a few weeks. We are thinking of things we want to show them here in Provence. Then we will all be flying to Germany for a few days and hanging out with our friend, Sebastian and his girl, Sina. Then on to Northern France to see Normandy.

My Mom will be taking her first trip outside the states in May to come visit. I'm so excited to show her around Provence! She's going to love it.

Nate is rejoining us at the end of May for a couple of weeks. He has more research to do, and we want to show him some areas outside of Marseille this time.

Why do I feel like our 3 months is going to fly by quickly? Hmmm.....I wonder. :)

Chris has been making a lot of progress on his research. He's feeling a bit of a time crunch, but he's doing fine. He'll be heading up to Paris in a couple of weeks to give a talk at a conference. I wish I could go too, but decided to stay home with Oreo this time and save money for our anniversary trip in June.

The weather here has started warming up, although today was cool and very rainy. April showers are going to bring plenty of May flowers to Marseille!

We have a fun weekend ahead of us. Saturday, we will be heading to Frioul with our French friends, Fannie, Nico and their 2 yr old Gael. Sunday, we will be going to Savim with Nell & Dylan. Savim is the wine festival (we went to one last year and LOVED it) here in Marseille. We are planning which wines we want to hunt for and foods we want to purchase. Chris has froi gras on the brain, while I'm looking forward to yummy local walnuts and cheese!
