Anyway, I thought I would give a quick shout out to you here & thank you for being so kind & following along. Here are a few personal responses accompanied by some recent photos.
Dawne ( French at Heart ), Thank you so much for your thoughtful words. You have raised a lot of great questions & I hope to answer them in some future posts. Especially, the story of how we happened to come here in the first place. I wish I could include some of the old photos of the house when we first bought it. But that will have to be an even later post as they are all back in the states & of course none are digital. Thanks again, I really appreciate your interest & your comments.
Elles ( Menthe Blanche ) Merci pour m'avoir écrit en français. Ça m'a fait plaisir de savoir que tu as vécu à Toulouse et que tu connais cette région. Je me souviens que tu as une amie près de Gaillac. Peut-être un jour tu viendras, et on pourra se rencontrer.
Émilie ( à la french ), Merci pour tes commentés aussi. You have a beautiful country & I feel so fortunate to think of it as my second home. Paris is my favorite city in the world. How lucky you are to live there! You mentioned that my photos are very small, I wish they could be larger also. I have tried every way I can think of to enlarge them but can not seem to do it from my iPad. I am sorry about that.
Liza ( Postcards from Colorado), I am always so happy when you drop by. I love hearing from you & seeing all the wonderful things you post on your blog. Hope you are having a wonderful summer.
Tomoko ( Green Tomato ), I am always mindful of how amazing this blogging world is when I think of our friendship spanning different countries & cultures. Thank you for being such a consistent follower of my blog. I am always delighted to hear from you.
Ruby ( Forest Dream Weaver ), I was especially interested to learn that you had been to Albi. It is not one of the better known French cities but it is such a lovely one. It makes me happy to know that you enjoyed visiting it as well.
Pauleta ( An Accidental Blog ), I am forever grateful for your constant presence on my blog. Your comments are a real encouragement for me. I wish I had more time to read all of your posts. I am especially interested to learn more about your French adventures.
Kristen ( A Sunny Spot ) I hope the weather has been nice in Boston. Oddly enough it has been quite cool here this summer not at all the norm but very pleasant.
Barbara, , Linna, Ren, Renilde, Suse & Jody thank you all !!
