And here we goooooo!

Great news to send us off on our trip. Mary was accepted at University of Kentucky. She will start June 12th. I know she will do great! I am just organizing all the puppy stuff, gifts, knitting projects, and some clothes that I will be bringing with me. Time to start transitioning into to French life. No tv, more wine, long lunches, time to sit in the garden.....

Getting Packed Up, and Ready to Head Back

I usually leave in late April or early May, but put off returning to France till May 14th this year. My garden here is California is just over the top, weather is fabulous, but I am ready to go back to France. This time will be extra special. My daughter, Mary, has never been, and she is coming with me for two weeks. I will get to introduce her to everyone, and show her what makes France so special. The dog, Sally, is also coming, of course.
