My name is Barb and I am the woman behind the online boutique THE FRENCH ELEMENTS. While I will always keep The French Elements blog (so many memories), I have started a new one and I hope you will visit.
CHASING THE NEXT CHAPTER is about change. The past few months I have been thinking about writing a new blog. My youngest son passed away 7/1/2015 and life will never be the same for us. He entered Heaven and we entered a new chapter in our lives. A very different chapter that is still unfolding.
We have always talked about moving back to Europe (or elsewhere). The talk continues but we are planning on making the dream our reality.
He would be pleased.

Thank you Angie and an update
The sweet Angie from Sandals and Daisies gave me this award and I am just tickled pink.
I just love every blog I visit and have found a great group of people out in blogland. I only wish I had more time in the day to visit everyone. Since I love everyone's blog, I am passing this on to every one that stops by. I know the rules don't state that but it would take forever (for me at least) to link this to every one. So please, if you read this post, feel free to put this on your blog from me. Sorry Angie, for not playing by the rules but it is too difficult to link to everyone .O.k, now for some updates. Above is one of my favorite places especially during the Holiday season. It is one of those stores that you could spend days in and still not see everything!
The Holidays are right around the corner. 4 months away, OH MY. I am busy working on getting things ready to go. I am also busy working on some items for Etsy. Hopefully I will have that up and running soon.
Quite a few of you have asked about the health situation with my family. There is some good news for me. I had a colonoscopy yesterday and all went well! Yayyy, doing the happy dance. I no longer need to have one yearly. That was prayer answered. The procedure isn't bad but the prep is not the way to spend a day-hehe.
My husband has his results back from the endoscopy and he has Barrett's Esophagus. This is something that can be watched by the doctor. We are thrilled there is no cancer and no surgery at this time. Again, doing the happy dance.
My son continues to have more bad days than good days. Bless his heart. He has endured so much in his 25 years. I can't imagine going through everything he goes through. I know there is a reason and someday it will be revealed but it is very hard for a mother to watch her child suffer so (regardless of how old he is). He really is my hero.
So, there you have it my friends.
I hope you all have a marvelous week if I don't get around to visiting every one I would like to.
