We went to Nancy (Nancyfrance--you know, rhymes with "fancypants") for the first time a couple of weeks ago. It's a lovely city that some call the "other Paris," or something like that, and it's just over two hours from our home. We had a great time just walking around, taking pictures (more to come), eating chocolate, and having lunch (outside! in the sunshine! in November!) in the gorgeous Place Stanislas. Quite a nice day!
Speaking of nice days, I hope all my American family and friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We hosted 28 friends we knew in Japan who all now live in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. They've become a second family to us, and it was so nice to be together.
