Life is Good

I really want to keep up my blog but spend so much time studying. As some of you know, I was laid off of a 20 year job in June and have been in school reinventing myself. I love it and look at this whole experience as an opportunity!

I just landed a part-time temporary job at a large law firm downtown. I'm so excited to be actually working in the new field. I'm staying strong and determined...Life is good!

I hope you are all doing well. Miss you!

Le Gite

Gite: n. A simple, usually inexpensive rural vacation retreat especially in France

We stayed in this lovely 3 bedroom gite on our last trip to France. The owners converted an old farmhouse and made 3 rentals out of it. It was beautifully located on an organic farm on the outskirts of Pelissane (Provence, France).

Jean Louis was able to ride his bike every morning to the local boulangerie for his daily pain au chocolat. It was close enough to also ride bikes to his parents home.

Notice the old fountain on the patio. Can't wait to go back!
