Our first bottles of Mas des Brun Rosé just made it to Houston. You can get some at our very good friends French Country Wines. Check with them as they could also ship, depending on where you are, to other cities. Cheers!
TODAY'S WORD: la promesse d'achat
: promise to buy
A DAY IN A FRENCH LIFE
by Kristi Espinasse
Aujourd'hui c'est une grande journée. On va signer une promesse d'achat après 3 tentatives d'acquérir une maison. On espère bien que cette fois-ci sera la bonne. On vous demande maintenant de croiser les doigts et si tout se passe bien, on sera des Ciotadins cet été. On vous laisse avec des photos de la ville des frères Lumière....
Today is a big day. We are going to sign a promise to buy after 3 attempts to purchase a house. We hope that this time it'll be the one. We ask you now to cross your fingers and, if all goes well, we will be "Ciotadins" this summer. We leave you with some photos of the Lumière brother's city.... [the city where they invented cinema]
Stories you may have missed...
La Promesse de vente - the day we promised to sell our vineyard to another. Read it here.
EVERYONE LOVES FOUTAS - Jean-Marc and I use these at the beach, for picnics, and it makes a great tablecloth, too!
TISANES - French herbal teas. My family drinks one every night, to help drift off to sleep.
APRONS, French-themed - keep the tomatoes in the tart and off of your nice shirt.
