It’s been a while…
Indeed, it has. The last time I’ve sent an email here was 6 months ago, after a short trip to London. And as you can imagine, a LOT of things have occurred since then.

Summer across Canada & Croatia
Summing up the summer very quickly, we were lucky enough to enjoy two different breaks between June/July and later in August.
First, we traveled to Canada. More specifically, we spent a few days in Niagara Falls with Shana’s family who had traveled up from the Washington-area. Then, we spent the rest of the week in Toronto to celebrate Meg & Rohan’s wedding — Meg being one of Shana’s closest friend. I have to say that Meg and Rohan’s relationship —just like their wedding— is the thing of fairytales, and we were incredibly grateful to be a small part of it on their special day. This trip also made us fall in love with the beautiful and incredibly multicultural city of Toronto, and we honestly can’t wait to go back.
Memories from Canada
The second summer trip was a short week in Croatia with my family, at the very beginning of August. It was our first time there, and we enjoyed ridiculously beautiful and hot weather. We discovered the small city of Dubrovnik, famous for being the shooting location of both Game of Thrones and the latest Star Wars movie, and enjoyed some of its islands and beaches.
Dubrovnik is beautiful
France in the Fall
In September, Shana and I spent an extended weekend in the region of Bordeaux, attempting to make the most out its natural cultural heritage:

Finally last month, Shana’s brother Jason and his wife Keri, traveled with us to Paris and then to my home region of the French Riviera. Over the course of 10 days, I turned into a tour guide — I say this with a lot of affection, because I love showing and introducing these different places to people who may not be as familiar with France. It’s always a great time for me to rediscover my own area with a fresh perspective!

It was also really wonderful to hang out with Jason & Keri again, especially after spending a month with them in Maryland last year. Shana & I can’t wait to spend some more time together this coming winter!

Has it already been a year?
Shana & I moved to Dublin back in January, meaning that we have spent the better part of a year in Ireland now. It’s given us the amazing opportunity to live together without having to chase one another around the world. We’re really grateful for that — up until we met, neither of us had thought about the number of legal requirements of being in a relationship with someone from a different continent. With that in mind, we’re trying to make the most of this little country by hanging out with the new friends we made this year, or by welcoming friends and family visiting from all around the world.
Still happy together, always smiling together! :)
In the near future
So that’s it for now, summing up an eventful summer. As we get closer to the end of the year, we look forward to seeing our families: this winter, we will spend some time with my family in the south of France and then with Shana’s family in Maryland. We’re less than three months away from the New Year, which is pretty crazy to think about. But with a new year comes new opportunities and new challenges, so we’re excited to see what the future holds for us.
How about you?
And on this note, I hope that YOU, dear reader, are doing well. Feel free to respond — I’d love to get some news and life updates from all of you, away from daily social media updates. So tell me:
  • How was your summer?
  • And what are your plans for this upcoming holiday season?
I look forward to reading your response!

Best,
—Thibault (and Shana)
