French Fridays: Bonne année

We’re wrapping up our two weeks in France and sadly heading home tomorrow 🙁 It’s been an(other) interesting trip – not *quite* a vacation but less and less work needing to be done on the house, so a little bit more free time each time we come. Looking back on the year that was last […]

French Fridays: our house in France

Those of you who were reading here in the summer of 2014 might remember that we came back from France with a bigger-than-usual souvenir, a house!  No, it’s not one of those “we fell in love with it and bought it on the spot” stories – I challenge anyone to purchase a house spontaneously in […]
