About

I am a 30-something American living in the Rhone-Alps, France with my French boyfriend.  This is my 3rd country to live in outside of the U.S. but the first one that is non-English speaking.  While I’m here, I’m getting my masters degree from the U.S. (online), studying French, and slowly eating and drinking myself through the country.

I usually put up one post a week (assuming I’m being a good girl)!!  Hope you enjoy!

    Hey! It’s Crystal from yesterday :p Dana sent me a link to your blog. I’ve met so many friends through my blog, and I’m so pleased we got to meet yesterday. Hope to see you again soon!

      Hello!!! Was great meeting you yesterday – sorry I had to scurry off so quickly, the danger of ‘working’ from home – its all about the self-motivation! Hope we can all get together again soon for a proper wine night/dinner. Great to have another North American in the neighborhood!

    Hi breadispain. I see why Cécile nominated you for the award; your type of humor iis similar to hers, i.e. we (especially males!) get to learn lots of new things while being entertained with tons of laughs. I was unable to get to the bottom (end) of your posts – I’d read one, then another, and it then it loads ten more. I’ll have to take a rain-check. Are you going to play the pyramid game and meet all those new people; I think Cécile may be kidding us, but I’m glad to have found your site. So here’s a hi from the land of bread-trees and breadfruit too. A+

      Hi Whitt!! Thanks so much for the feedback! I look forward to checking out your blog as well – it really is one of the things that is great when someone gives you a ‘shout-out’. It certainly sounds like you are living the exotic and adventurous life!! All the best!

  3. Brilliant post….I’m newly adjusting to life in France, too, since May. Also Americaine. Thanks for a good laugh on a homesick day.
