I can get happy with hearing about your wonderful life and the love and excitement and wonder that you share with your family and with us. Thank you so very much. Also, thank you for the pictures. They are all little pieces of art themselves. So beautiful to look at. I love your life story!

Bravo for having moved with your family.
You are very brave and very free. I’ve been thinking about how to move to Europe but I have not yet found a way.
Your story is inspiring!
I’ll keep reading your blog.
Thanks!

It is so idyllic, especially compared to my stuffy corporate job in Los Angeles.

What a treat to live next to a farm, I’d say that’s even better than having your own;) I see great opportunities for children to learn some good old fashioned hard work! How fun!

I asked that question before about animals in “other languages” and have been laughed at! But it’s true that there are some differences!

Beautiful country home, perusing the French market, eating croissants fresh from the bakery, and a neighbor that brought over delicious farm fresh eggs…I am continuing to love your France posts more and more every day!

anywho… hope you’re doing well. i’m loving this adventure of yours!

I honestly thought you were joking when you asked what noises they make in french. Aren’t they just biologically made to make a certain noise? Are the differences just our interpretation of their noise, or do they actually sound different?

You should be able to tell pretty easy if they’re milk cows or not. Milk cows have HUGE udders and when it gets close to milking time (usually twice a day) anyone who has ever nursed a baby feels exceeding sorry for them. They look miserable. From the bit of the mother I can see in the pic, I’d say beef cows. And the calf standing in the one picture is a steer (or bull if he’s not fixed, but they usually are at least in the states) you can tell by the “fuzzy belly button.”

People still make jokes about them miaowing in American accents… ;)
