It looks like something Raymond Depardon would have in one of his books.

So sorry the links aren’t working for you. I checked them again and they seem to be working for me. I wonder if it’s a browser thing?

And, you get to go back regularly because of the cottage! Very excited to read of your cottage renovation adventure!

I loved so many of those posts! Your posts in France have been very helpful to me – still feeling like a newbie – I often looked to see if you had experienced something similar. Thanks!!

I look forward to reading more of your adventures in Oakland and what fun that you will always have a piece of France with the cottage.

We have made the commitment to stay in France – it just works for us…I love all your posts about visiting Normandy and I will use them as we choose our travels around France. How are your kids adjusting to being back in the US? Are they staying in touch with their French friends?

I’ve been through the exact same situation and I still feel homesick a little (even though our experience wasn’t as great as yours). I think when you move with your kids, and remember all those locations where they played, where they started to walk.. that’s what I miss the most. I was wondering, could you write an honest post about how you feel back in the US? And what do you miss the most about Europe?

I guess it will be official when you change your “About Me” section to say you live in California. I’m glad for that because my family resides in SF, and I know how joyous the area is!! See you in SLC, I just registered for Alt Summit….SO HAPPY to be going.

I especially loved the reminder about what French kids are listening to. Such great music! Also, how amazing is Carla Bruni? I officially have a girl crush on her now.

it seems like you took advantage of your time there incredibly well!

You packed so much into your years in France. I love doing end-of-year recaps too so you can look back and ponder everything you’ve done over the year. I think the hardest part of them is choosing only one photo to go with each item in the recap.
