The year is 2016, my hubby and I are still unpacking boxes in our apartment in Boston. Jack is having the best time making the boxes an obstacle course, running around them, between them and even from time to time on top of them. Our apartment is on the fifth floor of the Boylston Tower, a corner apartment. I am happy because I feel that in terms of space, it’s a step in the right direction. We got rid of a lot of the knick knacks and made a commitment to get back to basics and embrace a simpler, minimalist decor. We have two bedrooms and an open area which is a dining/living room with the kitchen open off to the corner. Jack felt right at home the minute we walked into the apartment and so did I. The babies always have a place to stay if they need to stay with us for whatever reason. The baby boy is off touring Scandinavia and the baby girl will graduate in May from the University of Miami so whatever her plans are, be they in Miami or elsewhere she knows that she will have a place to rest her head for however long. I am so excited to be in Boston permanently and to be able to call it home for good. My dreams of retiring in France aren’t gone, but since retirement isn’t for a long time, this is a wonderful place to call home for our empty nest years.
