Such a lovely, thoughtful post. I'm really enjoying reading your take on living in France and all the beautiful pictures you've shared with us.

I'm so excited to hear you're planning on reopening the shop! Good luck with that. :)

So nice to see that love has overtaken heartache and longing. At least that's how it seems reading this post. Hope the trend continues.

Also, did you make the gingerbread? If so, how did it turn out being baked in your little oven?

Be well.
