Welcome Home, Sole Sister!

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

When we first started We Are Sole Sisters as a travel blog in 2011, the goal was simple: to experience, document and share our adventures all over the globe. In more 6 years of travel blogging, I had grown to embrace this lifestyle and profession.

“I want to learn how to make Tarte au Citron. It’s my mother-in-law’s favorite.”

It was a cold winter day in Versailles and I had just summoned the courage to ask a Cordon Bleu trained chef Patricia Boussaroque, who gives culinary workshops in her atelier, to take me in as her “stagiaire”, an apprentice.

I would also join races to see who could run the fastest. I often won.

"What have I accomplished so far?"


Is It Time to Settle Down?

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

I was in denial for a while. I'm still using a toiletry case- in a bathroom we've been using for months! I still have a backpack filled with necessities just in case a last minute travel opportunity comes up. I still feel a rush every time I see PROMO FARES in my inbox. But the reality has started to sink in.

We're not traveling anymore.
