“It takes strength to make your way through grief, to grab hold of life and let it pull you forward.” ~Patti Davis
July 1st, 2015, was the beginning of a new chapter in our lives when my youngest son passed at 32. Although I was advised decades before that he would not live to be a ripe old age, I was not prepared for his death, and it left me shattered.
After floundering for months, I began to entertain the idea of creating a new blog; a project so to speak. Chasing the Next Chapter was birthed in April 2016. It’s a blend of travel, fashion, and a generous dose of the ex-pat life in France… And whatever else I feel like sharing.
So much has happened since the first post…travel writing, moving to the South of France as full-time ex-pats, Covid-19 (me), reoccurrence of cancer (Ray), and so much more.
It’s been an interesting ride thus far, I hope you follow along on our journey, bumps and all.
