My husband, Jacques (yes he is French) and I (American) live on 2 continents. We own a 300 year old farm house in Provence called the Mas de la Fourbine. In the fall, we harvest olives from about 700 trees, which are then made into amazing Extra Virgin Olive Oil. In the spring we spend several months at the house doing repairs and getting it ready for the wonderful people who rent the Mas during the summer months. (Yes, you too can move in and we will move out.)
The rest of the year, we live in California, just south of San Francisco with our labrador retriever, Penny Lane. Two of my children live in California and the third, lives in France.
When we first bought the property, people asked me what we did to keep busy in France. I decided that if I wrote a blog and shared stories and photos of our life there, I wouldn’t be imposing upon my friends who were just being polite when they asked me what we did in France. And thus, my blog got a start.
