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.

A port in the storm. MHR's a day early
The sweet Katy Lin started My Husband Rocks several months ago and I try to participate often. It's fun and it definitely is something positive since there is so much negative talk in this world. O.k, I am getting off the soapbox to bring you this weeks episode of my husband rocks! It is a day early but tomorrow is a very hectic day.
Love has no limits, no bounds. A lot of you already know that my husband knew my children before I had even met him. Although my children are grown, my youngest is still very much a child. My husband knew from the first time he met him. He treated him no differently than he did my oldest son. Once I was introduced into the picture (my oldest son played match maker) I saw that he saw my son as no different from any one else. How refreshing is that? He did not judge (trust me, I've seen a lot of that over the years), he accepted his limitations and health problems as being very normal. Not a problem.
He knew the road would be bumpy, o.k., beyond bumpy at times but he still wanted to be a part of our lives.
I was very used to taking care of everything myself. It is wonderful to have a partner that has learned over the years what is important in life. He is my port in the storm and I am very proud to call him my husband.
