48. I love my French family
Over 30 years ago, my sister who had gone to Aix-en-Provence to study, fell in love with a wonderful Frenchman.

I've been blessed with a fabulous brother-in-law and his wonderful family, my 2 beautiful multi-lingual French/American citizen nieces, another charming French nephew-in-law and most recently, my very first grand nephew. Wow, I am one lucky lady.

And to begin this year with a bang, I'm soon off to Marseilles to meet the newest soul in our family, a French, Algerian, American, Catholic, Muslim baby boy.

Quell fantastic ! Oh, and I love how some Republicans go crazy when they hear that most beautiful French language, or even the word: France. Vive France !

Best,
Marie
