Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.

~Oliver Wendell Homes, Sr.

there is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness and truth. ~ leo tolstoy

Greetings and Bonjour!

I’m Resa, girl with one hand on the computer and the other keeping a pair of lively twins out of mischief.  Most days you’ll find me at our abode, carrying on with home school lessons, tripping over the dogs and attempting to bring order to our nest.  Oh, and dreaming about France and all things French!

Reveries aside, even though I don’t live in Paris or Provence, I am fortunate enough to live in the beautiful wine country of northern California where inspiration abounds: Rolling hills, fresh produce, cities, country, ocean, farms and all kinds of interesting people.  Residing in the proverbial little country house with a white picket fence, Monsieur Dance and I have eight children, ages 7 to 37.  The two youngest (the lively ones mentioned earlier) are still at home, with everyone else is flung all over the world. I’ve learned a lot being a wife and mother (and grandmother!) all these years, but I’m still…eh hem….perfecting my skills.  Perhaps you can relate?
