French Connections

May 8, 2020

It’s day fifty-five of quarantine for me. Although I’m still dealing with pandemic-related stress (aren’t we all?), my worries seem to be coming from a healthier and more rational place this month.⁠

I’m trying to cherish the little things more than usual. Connecting with loved ones in a digital chat. Losing myself in a good book for an entire afternoon. Enjoying apéro hour with Arnaud at our petite maison. Elements of the good life in all its simplicity.

Hope you are healthy and safe, and here are some links for you to enjoy:
