Sorry I’ve been MIA

72 hours in south-west France was apparently enough to give UNISG a run for its money. Thanks to an incredibly enthusiastic Papa & Maman team, we conquered: Toulouse, foie gras, vintage shopping, cloak/beret purchasing, cassoulet, wine, wine and more wine, castle picnics, more foie gras, the three musketeers, foie gras producers, armagnac producers, Trebas, porcini hunting, still more foie gras, Thanksgiving prepping and Thanksgiving feasting. Back in Bra all I have left to say is… vive la France! Vive le foie!

Also, I made that book cover! From scratch! And binded it!
