30 days of thankful: 13

Heat. I'm realizing just how easy it is to take everyday things for granted - heat being one of them. Our apartment in Toulouse has been without an operating heater since we arrived. At first, in 40+ degree celsius temperatures, we didn't mind and honestly didn't even know it was non-operational. Fast forward two months. The city has been spent most of its recent days under a thick and bone chilling fog. Upon exiting our building this morning, we could see our breath for the first time.

Imagine our delight when a little Frenchie man entered our apartment this afternoon announcing, "C'est electrician", and began installing a new heater in the living room. Victoire!

And in the spirit of fairness, we'd also like to dedicate this post to the beautiful Miss Jennifer Palmquist. We couldn't possibly give a shout-out to little bro Tyler without doing the same for Jenn. We miss you, sister, and can't wait to see you again next summer. Thinking of you on your special day and wishing you the happiest of birthdays!

on to the next one...
