The Very UnFrench Wife

VIE LENTE - SLOW LIFE

'We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us'. We are all told, “live your life to the fullest”; I am here to do just that. The BLOG 'The Very UnFrench Wife' serves as a vessel to project my passions, and clue in my loyal readers as to what inspires me in this wild French adventure. So, sit back, relax, and read on.
