In 2010 we packed up our two boys (with a petite-fille on the way!) three cats and three dogs and began our new life in Normandy, France after bidding a very fond farewell to our home and friends that we dearly loved in the Seattle area of the Pacific Northwest.
I have to be honest and tell you that the adjustment and transition to a new home and culture was not always easy and it wasn't until we found our 'maison de rêve' at Rabbit Hill in late winter 2013 that we really ALL felt that we had finally found HOME in the French countryside.
In 2011 I opened an on-line French vintage shop on Etsy which has led to my new on-line shop coming in September 2013 for vintage and French home & lifestyle essentials. The 'French Guy' and I also offer French vintage shopping tours in Paris and Normandy. We absolutely loving sharing our insiders tips to navigate the countryside brocantes and flea markets while sharing the gorgeous little towns and sites that we enjoy everyday.
When not doing all of that-- I am a writer and photographer and I have been blessed to participate in several food and lifestyle publications in addition to authoring a book. My passion is food photography, working on projects in our 373 year old home with my French-amour, searching for antiques, being a mom to three adventurous and active 'enfants'..... and perfecting my French.
Okay... learning French. C'est vrai.
Merci beaucoup for taking the time to get to know me ...
...and for coming along on the journey of our life in France!
