It’s already January 29th in France and it’s the first time since Ray was turning 23 that I haven’t been with him on his birthday. I guess that makes us pretty lucky, even if this year feels a little strange. Fortunately we got to celebrate both of our birthdays early when Ray had a conference in Puerto Rico earlier in the month. The Rietkerks and Kennedys made the weekend celebration much more fun- sparkly leis and tiaras included!
For my birthday, Téa took me on the giant Ferris wheel in Place Bellecour. Some good French tarts and a hockey game! Allez Les Lions de Lyon! After a goal everyone threw teddy bears and other furry animals on the ice as part of a fundraiser for sick children.
