Where I live in France

I am so excited about today.  I think you will be too!  Remember the other day when I showed you a sneak peek of something???  Well today I can tell you what it is!  I am hosting my first giveaway over at My Girlish Whims!!  And what will I be giving away, might you ask??  I beautiful French necklace.  It is so pretty, I want to keep it.  But I won't.  One of you will. :)

And to get you extra motivated to win something straight from France, I am linking up today with Little Miss Momma and showing off our 'hoods.'  Neighborhoods, that is.  So grab your coffee and have a little French visit.
Annecy. OK, I don't live here, but it was so pretty I couldn't resist

View from our town

I have always loved this pretty old building

Our city, L'Etrat (pronounced lay-tra)
When you are leaving L'Etrat

On the way to our house

You have seen this door before

Our bakery, yuuummmmmy

This church is from the 1800's

monument infront of it


It's really a pretty church, although I don't really see anyone go in it...

Little grocery store, called Petit Casino. Good for me when I forget items at the cheap grocery store!

Playground. I think it is weak sauce, but my son likes it. I guess kids are easily amused.

My son's school.  I will have to post a vlog of him speaking French. It is awesome.

So that is my 'hood.  I can't wait to check out some others!  Now that you are all Frenchied up, go enter the giveaway!! 

Bonne Journee!

I love all the pictures. I esp.like the city name spelled out in bushes. The church looks lovely. I wonder why no one goes inside.
How long will you be living overseas?
