About me

Location France
Introduction An American who grew up on the East Coast, I have lived off and on in France for more than seven years now. I'm a longtime lover of all things French... And have made France my home, step by step -- for the time being anyway. It seems like I'm just managing to bloom in many ways, now that I'm in my 30s, and I hope to share that blossoming here, from one day to the next. I'm also FULL of contradictions, so if one day I say one thing and the next I say the opposite -- don't be surprised!
