Lead up to the French wedding

(NOTE: I somehow erased this post earlier. Sorry! Reposting this, then the update.)

I'm sitting at a computer in a small French attic, printing off menus for our French wedding party. The sky is a bit gloomy, but we're hoping that most of the rain fell last night. From the attic window, the buildings across the street seem to be drying. The sun is coming out.

So far, the two families are getting along, but the translation has been a bit difficult to keep up with. It's hard to track so many conversations at once! The meals, at least have, been helping: Luckily, we've had enough cheeses, red wine, baguette, croissants, and pains au chocolat to keep everyone occupied between translations.

But... the menus are almost printed. I have to go see if I still fit into the red dress I bought...

MONDAY: Details about the party.
