In 2008, we lived in the Montmartre area of Paris ... On August 1, we went to our favorite restaurant to discover, much to our dismay, that they would be closed for a month and a half, closing August 1, re-opening September 15. At first I thought, 'How weird, why would anyone close for a month-and-a-half?'
I’m a nut case, I tell you. I majored in International Business and French Language and Culture Studies at the California State University in San Bernardino. Despite being a stay-at-home mom and not knowing a word of French, it sounded like the perfect degree for me!
