Thanksgiving 2015

We are (I am) thankful for...

our little Daphné blessing // that she's on the outside now (one year ago today)

a place to be together

doing crafts =)

my wonderful husband and incredible daddy to our little girl 

my great father-in-law and Papi to our Daph

my sweet mother-in-law and Mami to our gal

 Tonton Robinou, secretly the most gaga of all of us ;)

Tata Cricri, our family's biggest fan and supporter!

decorating for Christmas // gifts from family, thanks Tanner and Sarah for Jules

a roof over our head

an extra place setting

celebrating in a foreign country

stickers and paint pens

a new high chair for Daphné, delivered THIS morning =)

playtime with Mami

blessings from Tata and Tonton


playtime with Papi

memories // our glasses from our wedding

finding a turkey in France

food to eat

this little person

our family

that this is in my belly

that cute face

the love of a little girl for her daddy

Daphné, Tonio, Pierre, Nancy, Cricri and Rob

pumpkin pie

whipped cream

again, this little life given to us to care for and love and raise

having family close, even if some are far

these two

It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
Psalm 92:1

Calvary Chapel France Pastor's Conference

2nd Annual Calvary Chapel France Pastor's Conference in Cannes

Representing Lyon, Paris, Chambéry, Bourges, Nice, Cannes and possibly in the future, Bordeaux.

They were only all together for a total of 24 hours, but it seems to have been an encouragement to all.

Check out this beautiful website my husband created for Calvary Chapel France :

ps - thank you Manu for the photo

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you've already seen this first picture and read about how wonderful my husband is... if not, let me tell how wonderful my husband is!!!

He surprised me with a 3-day getaway to a treehouse bed and breakfast place because he knows how much I love both : surprises and treehouses.  It's a dream of mine to one day live in a tree like Swiss Family Robinson =).  Enjoy some photos that hardly do this place justice.

This was such a special time with my two loves!
Thank you Tonio for always winning in the best-husband-ever department =)!!!
(and best-daddy-ever)

Jesus, I can't imagine life without these two amazing people in my life.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I give you praise for your goodness to us.

Love Linz
ps.  If you're curious, here is the website of the B&B :
oh, and did I mention, he bought me a massage too?!!!
