I Wish I Could Jet Away...

I can hardly believe that it has been a year since I was on a plane heading back to France. (Post here.) This year, a return a Croissant-and-Baguetteland isn't going to happen.

Although Dijon and all of my friends, both French and teaching assistant, are far away from me, I know that, deep down, I will go back. I just need to get some things organized on my side of the Atlantic before that happens.

Until then, Happy France is Happy! I think I'll celebrate the good times by buying a camembert. Even a roquefort will do.

  1. Sometimes, when I think back to my trip to SoCal, it's like it never even happened...I miss it so much! I know exactly what you mean, it's hard to believe

  2. I just miss vacation in general. I haven't had a nice, peaceful, fun, no tears vacation in well over two years now. (One vacation, I did NOT want to go to but was dragged by the bf and his horrible son cried at least 2-3 times a day, which stressed me out. The second vacation, everyone around me was a miserable, broke mess, constantly complaining/crying drunk in bathrooms.)

    I'm finally going on a cruise the end of this year but I'm so scared after the past few disasters.

  3. Justina: Any chance that you can go back?

    Janice: Eek. :/ Try to let yourself be bogged down with what could go wrong and just have fun (albeit with crossed fingers).

  4. Je pensais à toi Barbara et ta façon d'écrire et de commenter tes expériences me manquait ,alors j'ai voulu jeter un oeil sur ton site. j'ai beaucoup aimé ton expérience comme Catwoman et à la Toussaint,nul doute que j'essaierai d'imaginer ton déguisement. A bientôt sur ton mail. Bisous

  5. Ah, Michèle, comme tu me manques!!! Je pense très souvent à toi...Merci pour ton message, ma chère. J'ai presque pleuré de joie quand je l'ai lu; ça rechauffe le coeur et fait du bien. :)

    J'espère que tu profiteras bien de tes vacances pendant la Toussaint.

    Gros bisous!!!
