Beautifully put.

corey, what a wonderful story! After reading a few books like, Almost french, c'est la vie, and 60 million frenchman can't be wrong....I find myself wishing and hoping your book would come soon:) Keep up the wonderful job and thank you ever so much for sharing your experiences!

Aww yes it's far from California, but France is such a beautiful country, especially the South, it's good to have it as a friend! Since I've lived there for a year and learned the language I feel the same.

You write your heart so very well....

lovely post & you just never know, that sacred spirit could be one of those saints - Bernadette or Therese. I envy you that you are so close to their grottoes over there.
just wondering if you ever come across the gorgeous vintage statues and religious relics for sale?

oh wow! this was beautiful. i'm glad you are finding a friend in your your new home.

Thank you for such kind comments, makes me blush!
There is a new expat in France and her blogs makes me remember all the details of France when I first arrived! Down to tailgatting and chewing gum! Go check her site out, you 'll love it:
Her stories make me recall my first years in France and smile!

Sure do enjoy the images you send us from france...
Do tell; where is willows california?

also here is a link I check out occassionally; french word a day

So sweet and honest, my Friend. I wish I could sit and have tea with you - or would it be cafe au lait now?

France sounds so beautiful. I'm in love with Europe - sight unseen. My Grandpa came from Norway and that is #1 on my travel to do list but France is a close second :) So different from California though... That would be quite an adjustment. I can't even imagine.

I can't imagine not falling right in love with France. It spoke to my heart, so. But I understand how hard it would be if youhad a large, loving family back home. Do you get to come back to Willows very often?


"...I have a foot in both countries now and a heart more full of love." Just beautiful, Corey! Lovely writing.

I love that last line!

I have never read this post but that is how I see the military life....

each new place offers so much....'what can we do here?' 'who will we meet here?'....i have to remind myself daily these thoughts...because otherwise i will close myself in my home..because it is what I know!
