Well, I've imagined a million ways to tell you this, but it seems best to keep it simple:

My husband has been accepted to the Le Cordon Bleu from November 2011-June 2012.  Sounds a bit like bragging-but he is an amazing (it's okay if it's not about me, right?)!

Eight eye opening, delicious, chance-of-a-lifetime, months walking and sleeping in the city of lights.  Am I scared?  You bet.  Am I a little nervous to bring two girls who will be almost-two and almost-four to live in a foreign country?  Absolutely.  Clearly the benefits outweigh the fears and unknowns because it's Paris.

There are still so many details and Visas that need approving, but our plans are set.

While there, I dream of dressing like her...

But, I will probably just eat way too much bread, get lost a lot, carry a huge camera and generally look way too American and touristy. 

The plan is to squeeze ourselves into one of the many one-bedroom furnished apartments within walking distance of the school. When not focusing on school we plan on doing tons of exploring and hopefully, when money allows, taking trains to other nearby lands.

There are so many more details I would love to share with you as this whole crazy adventure unfolds!
