HELLO & BONJOUR. I'M ANNIE

I'm a Bilingual North American with Thai and French Canadian roots living in the south of France. I sometimes call myself "The Live In France Guide" because I love sharing things about life and travel, often with a French twist. 

My husband Blake and I packed up the kids and ditched our California lives back in  2011  to live in France for what was supposed to be a one year sabbatical— we never left.
