It's my SITS Day!

It's finally here, my SITS Day!

Don't know what SITS is, well it's a community of 40,000 plus women who support each other through this crazy thing we call blogging.  It's pretty awesome actually.

If you are visiting from SITS, welcome.

Let me get you a nice café creme and pain au chocolate.

I bet you didn't think you would need your passports for today's SITS day, did you?

Welcome to my little corner of France, right smack in the middle of France - where Christmas preparations are now underway.

I'm your typical American boy mom except that I've been living in France for about four years thanks to my amazing job and we've been living crazy adventures ever since.

I have two adorable little boys - both of whom were born in France and speak the perfect combination of franglish.

I also realize that as much as I fight it, this country is digging it's way into my heart and that I won't go back to the States the same person I came.

I hope you will stick around and join me on my adventures on this side of the ocean!  There will be French baking, a little French wine and lots of embarrassing stories.

Bonjour, Barbara! Sounds like you are on a wonderful adventure. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and get to spend some time in the City of Lights!

Visiting from SITS and enjoying poking around your blog. I also have a child who saw more of the world before two than I did in 40 years. It's fabulous that your children will grow up knowing more than one language. Even though we lived in Europe for two years, we failed miserably at this.

I am so excited that today is your SITS day! Enjoy!

Joyeux SITS jour! LOL I'm sure that's not exactly right, but I tried. :) My High School French is elusive at times. :) Anyway, I hope you have an amazing SITS Day!

Congrats on your SITS day!! Enjoy the spotlight! I'm curious what your job is that has taken you to France. And I confess, I've never even heard of celery root, so I have no idea what you can do with it! And Nathan is a cutie pie!

Lani said...

I'm so jealous! Everyone I know who has lived in Europe has either decided to stay there permanently or dreaded moving back to the States. It sounds like you have such a different quality of life. Have a wonderful holiday!
