Overall, 2018 was a great year, the best we've had in France. The theme of our year would have probably been travel and adventure. We spent time in 6 different countries, 4 that were new to both of us. We also tried a lot of fun new things, made new friends, and grew with old ones. Thankful for another year and excited for all the exciting things we have planned for 2019! Below is a photo video of all our favorite moments!
3 Years in Lyon
My thoughts on beginning our FOURTH year in France..... Can't believe we've lived in Lyon for 3 years!
Can't believe Will and I are starting our fourth year in Lyon. 3 years since we've moved but in so many ways it feels like just yesterday that I was a naive 23 year old just following the Holy Spirit's calling on our lives. I had no idea the difficulties and challenges we would face. So many nights of thinking we made a big mistake and wanting to catch the next plane home. Finally in this 3rd year i've come to feel more and more like Lyon really is a second home. Understanding more of the culture, even when I don't totally fit in. (Can you really feel French when you don't like the taste of wine and cheese? ;)) So many highs and so many lows and 3 years later, I'm incredibly grateful that we followed God's leading and took this crazy step in moving to France. It's amazing what God can do in us personally, in our marriage/relationships, and in our faith journey when we just jump out in faith and follow Him. I can't imagine what our life would be had we let fear stop us from this move and stayed in our comfort zone. Here's to more time in this beautiful city with more adventures and people to encounter and lessons to be learned..... <3
HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!
