I am in a state of anticipation now, over my upcoming vacation in France. Life has been very hectic here and I certainly feel the need for some R&R. I have already begun packing some of the items that Darcy has requested, plus a few surprises. I have a list of what I am going to pack for myself. I use the app "Packing Pro", which I find to be very helpful. I am trying to take as little as possible in order to make room for some of the items that Darcy had left behind in Kansas.

I know that while I am in Orléans without Craig, I will often be on my own. Darcy and Mathieu both have work obligations. I will be just fine, wandering around Orléans or hanging out at their place. I will do a little shopping and probably spend several hours at the beautiful botanical garden, Parc Floral, which is one of my favorite places. It will be full spring when I visit, which will be a first for me. Craig will fly out to join me toward the latter part of the month.
