Hello Jennifer, I went through the same transition, in this case in the USA and understand you totally. Your comments on your blog are accurate. I am a French expat living in the USA with my American husband and we are looking at moving back to France in the region of Bordeaux Your comments about moving to France are valuable for my husband and myself as a French person (been away for 34 years) - I am sure there will be some adjustment to go through. Thank you for your insightful reporting.
