Jealousy times ten thousand

What I am missing in Michigan:

My parents’ driveway after 6 inches (15 cm) of snow fell.

My beloved car buried under 14 inches (35.5 cm) of snow.

Brandy attacking the huge snow pile.

That is what winter should be like…. ::sigh::

    Oh how I miss the Western NY lake effect snow! The light dusting once here just wasn’t enough for me to call this a winter (yes I wore what I would consider a spring jacket here all winter).

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
