Instasamedi {8 & 9}

OK, it's been really really REALLY quiet on Rue de France lately.
That's too bad... I know!

And my newest feature, Instasamedi?
The last post was already two weeks ago.
Two weeks is a long time... I know!!

But I have the best excuse ever for not blogging lately.
My family is here visiting.
That's fantastic... I know!!!

Speaking of knowing things, let me explain what you need to know...
I live in France
my brother lives in Australia
my parents, my sisters & my nephew all live in Canada.

It's been ages since we've all been together in the same place, 
yet here we are in zee Alps!
That's amazing... I know!!!!! 

As you can imagine, we are having a wonderful time.

Despite not blogging,
I have still been taking daily Instagrams, 
so here are the last two weeks' worth.

You've been waiting for a while... I know!  
So here you go!

No swimming??! But it was so tempting, given the rain...

No more icy cobblestones, youpi!

Dear Instagram, 
Thanks for making my nephew Ben look as if he grew up in the 1970s like me...
{jeudi, Annecy, chez nous}
Setting off for an hour-long lake tour with my siblings on the Lac d'Annecy !

OK, so we've caught up on the first week of my 
February Family Festivities!
Ready for the Instagrams from last week?

Instasamedi {9}

Could my husband's hometown in Le Beaujolais be any more scenic?
{lundi, Pommiers, view of the village & its vineyards}
Did this West Coast girl make her brother take her out
for {really yummy!} sushi here in the midst of zee French Alps? Mais oui!
{mardi, Annecy, restaurant Ô Sushi}
I love how there are 3 languages on the cinnamon etc in Swiss Starbucks.
Geek? Moi? Mais oui!
{mercredi, Geneva, Starbucks}
Thanks for putting up the blinds, Dad & Dave!
They sure help frame the view from our living room.
{jeudi, Annecy, chez nous}
I see you, Dad!
{vendredi, Chambéry, little street dans la vielle ville}
So voilà... there you go!
Now you're all caught up on the Instagrams & family fun
from the past two weeks.

Here's hoping you've enjoyed this {très belated} post,
even though I used a few too many exclamation points 
& "I know!!!"s...

Any photo capture your fancy?

Also, how about you?
Are your siblings scattered around like we are?
Have you had any family reunions lately?


  1. Great photos, Em!

  2. Hurrah for the return of Instasamedi!

    You know how I love me some Starbucks, so I'm quite partial to those trilingual cinnamon etc shakers. That one of your dad is pretty great, too. And the one with the shadows is fun, aussi.

    So, we really have to figure out a way for me to get over there so we can go for the world's best chocolat chaud together, non?


  3. Enjoying your blog. There are so many corners of France that are lovely. I posted on one in Normandy here http://caroleschatter.blogspot.co.nz/2011/11/bagnoles-de-lorne.html
