I am a "prof en retraite"... a retired French teacher! I love anything French. I even tried retiring early and living in France for a year, but the birth of my grandson pulled me back home. And now I have two more grandsons! My other babies are my four cats, one of whom lived in France with me and "speaks" French! My blog "Confessions of a Plate Addict" reflects my love of France and all things French...thrifting, repurposing, decorating and traveling...with a French accent!
