How nice she was to deal with, and the sweater has already shipped too.

We finally made it. We are trying to set ourselves up in Angers. Hubbies put his paper work in for his visa. The kids aren’t in school yet as you said school holidays, but we are staying in a gite for now till we find a more permanent address. Saw your story about the cottage what a great idea. Our future plans are to similar but we were thinking of running a Gite for extra income. anyway thats a longtime away, i just want to get an adress and start exploring – its so beautiful here.

Cheers

The extra discount just pushed me into action! Thanks!

But our visas expire each year and we just hit our 2 year mark. So we’re reapplying in order to have permission to live here 6 more months.

We’ve done so much exploring here, but we still haven’t made it to Provence!

We might have to be content with the visit we had in the summer.

I recommend a vist to Mont Blanc,Chamonix(host of the first Winter Olympics in 1924). Also, be sure to check out Annecy. Happy road trip!

I love the sense of whimsy it holds. Same for the nursery! What I wouldn’t do for a teepee of my own.

Have a wonderful road trip! xo

Adore. Where will you go on your road trip? Places I would suggest is the South of France to the Provence and the Luberon if you haven’t already been down there. It is so so lovely this time of year. You might have missed all the blossoms, but there is still a chance to see them! They are something that will be etched on your heart forever. Also, the olive trees down there are beautiful. Absolutely beautiful, you can feel Van Gogh’s inspiration throughout the villages and rolling hills. While you are still in France you should really try to go to the Isle de Batz, It is gorgeous and so very quaint. But that is only if you don’t go to Provence. thanks again for the links! xo
