Oh to fall in love and live in the beautiful French countryside...!
Bonjour y'all! My name is Sara Louise and I blog over at Sara in Le Petit Village; typing away in my little barn house on a small mountain in Southern France (not that my house is still a barn, but it was like, 500 years ago).
While Nicole is getting settled into her new home in Madrid (one of my absolute favorite cities by the way) I thought I would tell you a little bit about me, and how I came to find myself living the French life in Le Petit Village.
I'm a New York/ Texas girl who moved to Dublin, Ireland nine years ago (the fastest nine years of my life!) and on one fateful Friday night in a club, I came face to face with my fate, aka, my husband, Gregory.
Except Gregory wasn't Irish, he was French and barely spoke any English... and I didn't know any French. But that didn't matter because you know how they say that, “you'll know when you know”? Well it's true. I knew in about thirty seconds. And ten months later, I was on an Aer Lingus flight to Nice to start my new French life.
It's been almost three years since I've been here now and a little over two since my Frenchman and I got married. Along the way we've adopted our fur-baby Fifty, traveled all around the South of France, drank buckets upon buckets of Rosé, and I've even managed to learn a little French. It's been a great adventure and look forward to sharing it all with you!
À bientôt mes amies et bonne chance à toi Nicole!
