I follow several expat blogs, but I think Kristen's (sp?) is the first one I found. I'm not even sure if I can vote more than once, but I have to give a shout-out to her blog! She has written so personally about her life, I feel as though she were my very best friend who is sharing her life with me over a cup of coffee. I love how her mother chimes in from Puerto Vallarto, and her husband makes a regular appearance on the blog too. I feel like I could show up at their house and be welcomed, even though she only knows me from my comments (and I promise not to!!! I would never stalk her like that!) But that's a tribute to the warm, inviting way she chronicles her adventures being married to a Frenchman, owning and operating a vineyard, raising French/American children, and settling into life in France.
