This week was a tough transition back after taking time off of work. I found out my French teacher Caroline accepted a job in France and will be leaving on Tuesday. I have some French homework to finish up before our last lesson tomorrow. Not only has she been a great teacher, she has become a friend and I will miss her! I was thrown a few other unexpected curve balls this I made it through with the help of friends and laughter. We had our first snow of the year in Chicago which brought about 5 inches this Saturday, it was a fun way to spend the weekend. How was everyone’s week?

Grace and Frankie is back on Netflix. I found out that you can watch it in French with French subtitles. Caroline and I were looking for something for me to watch in French and I am so happy this is an option and I stumbled upon it by mistake. I can’t wait to watch and practice my French at the same time.

I am putting this on my Valentine Wish List. Rose scented limited edition candles from Diptyque. I may end up gifting these to myself. I love burning candles while I work at home in the Winter.
