Guest Post: Lieselotte Maria Fritsch

  Hello Everyone, My name is Lieselotte, I live in a valley right in the center of Austria, surrounded by mountains and forests. My husband Dieter and I were lucky to get to know Corey and Yann a couple of years ago when they were on a motorbike tour through Austria. We found them “très sympathique“; but anyone who has had the chance to know them personally will know what I mean.   Corey was fascinated by what she called “coffee hopping in the alps“...

Guest Post: Gina Baynham

    I first came upon Corey‘s blog in 2007 accidentally as I sat in my kitchen in Australia helping my 7-year-old daughter to research a school project. The link Google brought me to was a story about gold bead necklaces  traditionally gifted to young girls in Marseille to mark special occasions as they grew up. I was captivated. For a brief moment I was unaware of my messy kitchen, the pile of laundry waiting to be done,  and young kids running around asking me to do things for them. I came b...

Guest Post: Linda Morrison

  I am a finder, and maker. I am a 67-year-old woman,  I am lucky  I am happy And I found my tribe.     I hate to travel, but the opportunity to spend a week roaming around Provence  with Corey as a guide seemed like a worthwhile endeavor.   Corey took us to a small market in her village,   while the others in the group shopped and wandered,   I watched as the vendors did a dance that was familiar to me.   I loved being a street vendor,        For many years I sold at a weekly flea market in ...

Guest Post: Cy Todd

  Hi Everyone!   I don't know about you, but when I got a message from Corey, asking me to consider doing a guest post on her blog, well... I had just finished reading about Rebecca  the Metropolitan Opera singer in NYC, and thought... how do I follow that?   Then I read about Jennifer in New Zealand, and again, I'm thinking... how do I follow that?  Then I gave up.  What could possibly be of interest to Corey's readers about my life?  And besides, she probably wrote ...

Guest Post: Annie Lockhart

  I’m so excited to be a guest here! I met Corey through blogging when we both were just starting out blogging back in 2006.     I, along with several others where invited to a wonderful BLOGGERS tea party/slumber party in her hometown in gorgeous Northern California. My grown children were a little concerned that I would travel to someone’s home that I had never even met in person. They called my blogging friends my imaginary friends.       Little did they know that some of my favorite...

Guest Post: Chris Ulichney

When Corey invited her followers to share their stories, it seemed like the least I could do in thanks for all the beauty, positivity and joy she has shared with us. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Corey in person, but it could have happened more easily four years ago. Let me explain. My husband, Mick, teaches at Savannah College of Art and Design. SCAD has four campuses. One of them is in Lacoste, France. Mick was offered the chance to teach there for a quarter in January 2017. Prior to...

Guest Post: Shelley Wildgen

  I've been an avid Corey follower for the past ten years or so, having first been introduced to her transformative writing in a magazine article, she wrote about her 'French Husband'.  Corey's story and pictures sent me immediately to her blog and I've been entranced ever since.         I love Corey's perspective of being immersed in a land that is so different, yet equally as beautiful as her California origins... and of course, all the characters that go with ...

Guest Post: Pam Gunn

              Hello, My name is Pam, I am 74 and have never “canned” anything. My mom did the canning but not me. Whenever I wanted something "canned", I would ask her and she would do it I loved her canning.   My mom passed 10 years ago.   My brother who is 69 and a widower lost his job of 50 years last March due to Covid.   My Brother thought we should make our mom's canned corn relish he asked me if I have my mom’s recipe. Yes, I said. We canned 14 pints ...

Guest Post: Wendy Cole Steel

When I first started following Corey, I was deeply entrenched in Silicon Valley working in Tech, a newly remarried mom of a tween (God Bless my husband), and running as fast as I could on the proverbial hamster wheel.   As a full-blown Francophile, Corey’s photos and writing piqued my interest and provided a nice diversion from my then overly stressed out life.      Fast forward to now... We are retired and live in Carmel Valley, Californi,  w e are empty-nesters with three rescues dogs ...

Guest Post: Anna Schlemma

  A day without Corey is like a day without sunshine.  I always begin my day with Sunshine.  I’ve been reading Corey’s “reflections” for many years, and am always deeply appreciative of her open-heartedness, talents, insights, and wisdom, and the beautiful way she IS in this world.  I’m delighted and humbled to have been invited to share a bit of myself here.  I will now attempt to distill and encapsulate a life for almost two weeks short of 72 years.          I was ...

Guest Post: Linda Marcov

2009   When Corey asked us to be guest writers for her blog, I knew I wanted to give it my best and make it something worth reading. I have followed her for years it seems, maybe 20 it's hard to remember when I first saw her beautiful photos and words in Romantic Homes magazine. When she wandered into my booth at Marburger Farms Antique Show in Round Top Texas over 10 years ago, camera in hand, and made a comment about how lovely our things were I looked up to find I recognized her name on her ...

Guest Post: Sue Johnpeter

  When the blogging universe was exploding into many points of light, I found my way to Corey’s blog. Her touching words and observations kept me coming back. Her story of Chelsea climbing into Sacha’s crib to give him a bottle when Corey was recovering from cancer surgery touched me deeply. An incredible family, a mother with such heart and love.     (Our front porch)   Like many Americans, I am drawn to things French. Unlike many Americans, the reason is that our Dad was a bombardier instruct...

Guest Post: Teresa Young

    Hello Friends, my name is Teresa Young. My husband, Dave & I live in a small town in southern Oklahoma. We met later in life, and have enjoyed being able to share our mutual love for art & creativity in life together.  Seems like I always have a million projects going on in my head as well as my life. I think that is how I roll. I always have... Our children are grown and living their adult lives. We have 2 beautiful granddaughters that are truly a joy.   Favorite photo of us with Corey ...

Guest Post: Becky Hubble Peterson

My name is Becky Hubble Peterson. Corey and I have never personally met. Years ago in my search for all things French, I stumbled across her blog, Tongue in Cheek with a zip code that was familiar.     St. Xavier’s Catholic Church (circa 1855) in Chinese Camp, a few miles from my home. It was locked up, however, if there is a way to peek in I'll find it. Look at the tiny confessional near the door.   A horse posing for me on a Spring day in Chinese Camp. One of the other days ...

Guest Post: Ann of Avondale

I met Corey through Victoria Magazine.   I was interested in the monthly feature “Business of Bliss” and how women do what they love as a business. Long ago there was a chat forum on iVillage for Business of Bliss and I was a Moderator to keep the conversation flowing and interesting. During that time, I came across an article on Corey and her life in France. I read all her posts and have continued to follow her blog. Hopefully, one day we will meet in person. My real career is in Finance. I h...

Guest Post: Jeanne

  Jeanne and her sister.       I grew up in the fabulous fifties era, the happy days' era, the sweet simple times when life seemed less complicated.  My Mother and Grandmother raised us with much love with the help of many relatives.  They both began their eternal lives and I miss them more than words can say.  They are both treasured and adored in Heaven as they were on Earth. My Sister and I are so close and reflect often on our beautiful childhood memories and treasure each ...

Guest Post: Judy Wilcox aka HeyJude

I am Judy Wilcox I am a procrastinator.     When this pandemic hit, I decided as long as I was going to be isolating at home, I might as well dig into the numerous projects I’d been putting off for years.   I made a list—clean closets, drawers, cabinets, and the storage area which hasn’t been tackled for, well, let’s just say a very long time.   I cleaned the hall closet and a few drawers and lost interest.     I have other confessions to make as well.   I make Santas using old quilts, v...

Guest Post: Susan May

My name is Susan May, I am delighted to tell a bit of my story, here on Corey's blog.                I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska.    Growing up far from the continental United States, travel has been part of my life since a toddler.            Which made moving to Switzerland, 14 years ago, for my husband's job, an adventure more than a challenge.                   8 years into our life in Zurich, we...

Guest Post: Kathy Benusa

Write a guest post for Corey’s blog?  My inner critic was quick to respond, “No way, it told me, that’s too scary. It’s out of your comfort zone.” Totally true, I thought.     Then, I casually mentioned the idea to my other half, Randy, the best person I know and my high school sweetheart.   He thought it was a fabulous idea.   I kicked the idea around for a few more days starting to warm to it.   When I shared it with my life coach friend, Sherri, she was “beyond, beyond” that this amazing ...

    Greetings to all of you I feel so honored to be able to write here as part of this wonderful community. As Corey had mentioned I felt shy like others about coming forward, which is unusual because I am a classic extrovert. Let me start by saying Hello and thank you for sharing this part of your day. My name is Heather and I met Corey online here in the blog world in 2008.   I also had a blog at that time. Sadly, I no longer blog I need to I really do, Corey always inspires me. 2008, My Blo...

To some that is a lot but to me it seems like yesterday when I was 25 I received the call from Piedmont airlines to come for an interview. Being a flight attendant is like no other job you will ever have few quit. Flying gets in your blood. I have been through numerous mergers, have had salary cuts, I also...

                             Lil's paintings!     I'm not sure how I found 'French la Vie' (Tongue in Cheek) so many years ago but I was probably googling something French and returned each day because Corey's posts are like a little visit to France or to Willows or to wherever she's ventured. ...Here's a little about me and my first visit to Paris.   I am half French. My mother's family names are Dozois and Laurence and I remember that on my first visit to Par...

My Mother's Birthday

  My mother's birthday. This incredible year that has shaped us in ways we never imagined. A year where I sat countless hours with my mom doing things I had dreamed about for years, everyday simple things, sharing life as one does without realizing the gift that it is: We cooked, fed the chickens, wrote letters, hung clothes on the line, baked pies, picked berries, laughed, watch TV, played cards, cheated, ate way too many popsicles, and cookies, cracked countless bags of walnuts, visited my da...

I live in Florida after moving to the States from Hong Kong in 2016, first to Alexandria, Vi...
