Hello! My love affair with France and all things French started when i studied abroad in Aix-en-Provence as a junior in college. I moved back after graduation, worked as an English assistant in Aix and Marseille, and then married a Frenchman in Avignon before coming back to the US. 5 years later I have a beautiful French/American/Hispanic/European 18 month old who we are raising to be trilingual.
