I'm Annie André.

I'm a Bilingual North American with Thai and French Canadian roots who's been living in southern France with my husband and three children since 2011

I started this travel and lifestyle blog about France as a way to document and update friends. Over the years, as my blog has grown, I discovered I had something going on with this French lifestyle blog thing, and it morphed into my full-time passion.

I cover a wide range of blog topics, including French cuisine, French tradition, the French language, tips for learning French, French cities, culture shock, raising children in France, weird and interesting French facts, and much more.
