I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and my forays into the countryside were infrequent. I consider myself a suburban “soccer mom” or these days, a “soccer” Grandma. I live most of the year in California but am presently in Provence. It is frequently a culture shock.
Yesterday, Robin (my daughter-in-law) and I went in search of a christmas tree. We took a few back roads snagged our prize but were stopped in a traffic jam on the way home.
