Life is good

Yesterday marked three years since I moved to Paris. In many ways, it seems like ages ago, yet I can still remember sitting there in my shoebox that first night, looking around at my life packed up in a few small boxes and wondering "What are you doing here? What's going to happen now??"

And now here I am planning a wedding, with a man who is both beautiful inside and out:

funny I was just thinking about that too, that it was around this time of year three years ago that you moved there. they've gone by so quickly, haven't they? let's hope the next three go by as smoothly for both of us! at least i know that for the next two we'll be in the same city again!!!

That's funny Yuri, because I had originally included a line in there saying thanks to you for being here with me that first weekend, and that I was looking forward to being there for your first weekend in Paris. But then I deleted it because I didn't know if I should be announcing your business on the internet. Either way, can't wait until you're here! :)

Aww, how sweet, and he's so handsome! I'm really glad for you that you've found such happiness. I first found your blog some months before you moved to Paris, when I was looking for Bretagne-related blogs (used to live there). I didn't know you at all but I felt so bad for you when all that happened. It's been really great reading about your adventures since then. Three years has just flown by! Best wishes to both of you. :)

See? Aren't you just thrilled that you followed your instincts and came here anyway, instead of heading back home? Good things DO happen to good people! And aren't we a couple of lucky ladies, having found more than we expected here?

Wait... "only" three years? That means I got to know you pretty soon after you moved in Paris!

I wish you all the best with you and your C! Have fun and enjoy your good life in Paris!

(I'm back for holidays and just had a long walk in sunny central Paris this afternoon, it was delightful!)

Congratulations on your time in Paris and of course, your upcoming wedding.
I lived in Paris for 10 years, met my husband there and loved every minute.

I remember reading about your move to Paris and what came before. It's such a joy to see you happy and in love with your sweetie and your life.

Finding my British husband three and a half years ago changed my life in ways I could not have imagined and I love reading about the changes in yours.

I can't wait for the wedding details either. I hope you'll share pictures! The one today is darling!

Oooh la la! He is cute. I am very happy for you.

Also wanted to let you know that your joy and all the great things in your life after such a hard time are lifting my spirits as I go through what happened to you before your move to Paris.

I always knew that you would create great opportunities and accomplishments out of what appeared to be failure on a grand scale.

Happy 3rd Anniversary of your move to Paris and congratulations on your upcoming wedding to that handsome and very kind-looking young man! I couldn't be happier for you.

You deserve the happiness you have found, you wanted it, were open to it and was ready when it showed up. Good job. ♥

Then today, I told your story to one of my BF, back 4-5 years ago when you were still in Bretagne. And I was like "it's been a while now, maybe she's married yet, I'll have to check tonight and here am I, reading your post !
I am really HAPPY :)) for you Sam !

I'm just now catching up on your blog Ksam and let me just say that I have always been so taken with you. I truly admire your fierce commitment to living well and I remember reading about your move to Paris, with all you were dealing with and to see you now is truly magical. I am inspired me you, as are so many other people who are blessed to read your blog :) I've had a tough time as of late, but I can't give up on my dreams when I reflect upon your own struggle and journey. Am so SO happy for you!
