La Fin?


Look at that... over a month since my last blog post and it wasn't even written by me! Without meaning to, I've taken quite the blogging break this summer and to be honest, I'm not ready to break the break.

When I moved back to the States five months ago, I had every intention of continuing blogging, hence the switch from Sara in Le Petit Village to C'est Moi, Sara Louise. But truth be told, repatriation has kicked my butt way more than I expected it to (not in a bad way per se, just in a very tiring way), and aye yai yai, Gregory's green card process... don't even get me started on that whole thing (it's happening, it's just happening at the slowest snail pace possible). 

So yeah, I've been busy trying to build a new life here in America without my husband (temporarily of course) and for the moment, blogging is way down on the priority list. While I miss all of you, I'm not really missing blogging. But after careful consideration, I have decided to keep this space alive in case the blogging bug bites again. After all, I still have loads of stories to share with you. In the meantime, my Facebook Page, Twitter and Instagram feeds are still hopping so if you'd like to check in, you know where to find me. (Please check in, I miss y'all... oh and Fifty asked me to tell you that if you happen to miss him too, you can say hi here or here). 

And that's that. I'm gone, but not gone, gone.

Thank you all for four amazing and wonderful years of your friendship, love and support. You mean more to me than I could every fully express in a meaningful enough way, but please know that I never could have survived life in the middle of nowhere in a tiny village in Provence without you.

Much love to all of you.

À bientôt mes amis.

  1. I'm not ready for you to leave! But I know it's been a rough process and I totally support your decision to take an indefinite break. I'll just have to keep up with you everywhere else, so we don't lose touch. :) xo

  3. Take care of you! Seriously…do only that which brings you joy. I love your writing style and I'll miss your posts of course, but get your husband on the continent and enjoy this change in life and lifestyle. The web will always be around…

  12. That stupid tiring green card process! Keeping my fingers crossed! I am always happy to see your posts on Instagram but will definitely miss you here!

  13. Oh man I am bummed now. I put my blog on indefinite hiatus back in May. Like you I have things I want to blog about but just couldn't seem to get up the interest or energy. Hope Gregory is back with you soon.

  14. This made me so sad to read because I've grown to love your posts so much - they've always helped me just take a break from the craziness of my own life. I understand though completely - you have to put yourself first, and if blogging isn't doing it for you right now, it's important to take that break so that blogging doesn't become a chore.
    Please, please keep in touch - I'm always here for you, love! xox

  15. Well I understand, but I will really miss seeing how it all turns out. My best wishes to you, and pat Fifty for me.

  16. Oh my gosh I totally relate to this - it took me two years to start blogging again. It can be pretty time-consuming, huh? Enjoy your break, we will miss you!!! :)

  17. So glad to hear you aren't gone! I hope things work out soon. We miss you too!! :)

  18. I will miss you! But can understand your need to concentrate on building a new life. Good luck with that and hope you re-join the blogging world in the future.

  19. Completely understandable! My life is in boxes, and we're heading to South Korea for a couple years. It makes you re-evaluate the priority list. Good luck, can't wait to read about your American adventures!

  20. Tried to leave a message twice before but google lost it so third time lucky. Just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed reading your blog & am going to miss hearing about your new adventures in the USA, but I get it - if your heart isn't in it then it is time to stop. However, I'm secretly hoping that you get your blogging mojo back when Gregory is back with you & you start your new life in Mass, Anyway, thank you for all the pleasure & laughs you have given me & here's to you (raising glass of chilled rose),

  21. Gah! So apparently you aren't showing up in my stupid Wordpress reader feed (along with lots of other non-WP blogs, grumble), so I missed this! This makes me very sadface, but of course you need to take time for yourself, and figuring out life State-side. Hope that everything keeps chugging along with Gregory's green card, and you can get yourselves settled together asap.
    And of course, hope hope hope that you make your way back here in the future, the internet will not be the same without your descriptions of Rose-fueled shenanigans. :) But until then, I'll be liking your Instagrams, as always.
    Liebe from Deutschland! h.

  22. Aw, I totally understand and I can't say I blame you! Glad we're connect on Instagram. :)

  23. For some reason this post did not show in my feed and I just popped by anyway to see where you were! I can fully understand that you have to concentrate on building your new life but I just wanted to say that I have been missing your posts. Enjoy your break and hopefully you will be back here when the time is right. Good luck with the Green Card. I hope things start speeding up!

  24. I've been absent from the blogging world for quite a while, too. And I just thought I'll go check out a few blogs I missed reading...to find this post of yours :) I can absolutely understand that not all the phases in our lives are meant to be blogged about. Sometimes there even needs to be an end to all the blogging. It doesn't really matter though, what matters is that you're happy :) I love following you on Instagram. If you write again, I'll happily come back and in the meanwhile I hope Gregory will come over very soon and that the two of you will be as happy as can be :)

  25. Everyone seems to have lost their blogging mojo lately, me included (although I did just do one, yay me). I hope you settle back in, sort Gregory out and hopefully you'll be back one day x

  26. Oh my gosh Sara, I will miss your blog!!!! It's been a great journey to follow you through France and back to the States ~ I'm not on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (altho thinking of doing the latter) so maybe we can connect there at some point...
    Wishing you, Gregory and Fifty all the best and hoping to stay connected somehow! xoxo

  27. Wishing you and Gregory well, Sara...I will miss your blog as it has always been a pleasure to read, and I'm not a FB/instagram etc kind of girl. However, I'll keep the bookmark open and pop in from time to time. Maybe one day I'll have a lovely surprise and find you've got your blogging hat back on. Until that time, go well and have a fantastic life. Hugs to Fifty too.

  28. We'll certainly miss your posts! I completely understand though- since I've been back in the States it's been a lot harder to blog- I'm trying to get a lot of posts in rotation now actually- and ya know, sometimes life takes a hold and there's no time for it! Drink lots of wine! Wish you the best!

  29. I can totally understand this decision! I have the same feelings since I moved away from France. It's somehow tiring yet exciting to build a new life in old home. So many things probably to share and at last for me, no words to describe it. I wish you the best and hopefully G gets his green card soon! Bisous from Finland dear xx
