Thank you for the generous, encouraging comments yesterday. I appreciate your following and admiring our effort in creating a home in Cassis.

Cassis apartment corey amaro living in France

 

Last August I found a fisherman's house for sale on the port in Cassis.

The house was in need of major repair, most would have found it daunting, though we had a...

Spring in Provence:

The almond trees bloom pink, the cherry trees put on white, bird song fills the air, the light of the day softens, a blush covers the trees as they wake up. It is a lovely time to be in Provence.

Digging in Boxes Where a Powerful Thing was Found

Hi, Corey!

Your brocante post detailing your box-digging escapades came at the perfect time!! You see, last week, I was in my attic (aka hoarder's den) & found a box of my late dad's belongings that he had brought up here from Virginia 10 years ago. It had been in my attic all that time. I carried the box down 2 flights of stairs....

French Brocante, France, French, Corey Amaro, Living in France

 

Last weekend when I was in Paris I begged Sacha to come with me to the brocante and take photos of me doing my thing.

He obliged. One of my conditions was that I did not want to know when he was taking my photo.
