my husband, 5 kiddos, & i just returned from a month together in france. the charming farmhouse we rented sat amidst the rolling hills & farms of the garonne region. as we spent time with the locals: playing at the parks, attending the tiny branch at church, getting to know our hosts, and having new friends over for dinner...our family began to taste the “bonheur” or happiness the french describe: not a fleeting moment of pleasure, but the sustained state of being that connects these moments intensifying the overall experience. truly, it's something that is cultivated, curated, and savored.
