Au revoir

Over the past two weeks more than a few readers have emailed me, asking if things are okay, asking about the blog, and when am I going to post again.

The truth is, once school started up at the end of August, I've had less time to blog.  This school year, a combination of factors has me focused more on my classroom; with 70 students (up from 48 last year), there's more preparation and planning, more responsibility, and a lot more papers and notebooks to read.

To that end, I think it's time that My French Corner bids adieu.  It seems silly to keep a blog going if one rarely posts, n'est-ce pas?

Blogging has been a wonderful experience for me.  The opportunity to write, to share about topics that interest me, and to connect with so many of you has been an unexpected pleasure.  I want to say thank you for checking in and reading and commenting over the years.

I'll keep the blog up, at least for a while.  And who knows, maybe one of these days I'll show up unexpectedly on My French Corner.

Mille mercis!


  1. Oh, sing it, sister, I hear you. Blogging is a chore; I sure couldn't keep it up. Yours was fun while it lasted though. Au revoir et bonne chance, cherie!

  2. Lisa, thank you so much. However, this doesn't mean I won't be checking your blog regularly!

  3. Marsi, thanks much. I've enjoyed our exchanges over the years. And next time you plan to visit your friend in Ballston, let me know and we can meet for a Swirl at Rio Grande!

  4. I have enjoyed your blog so much over the years and learned a lot from you. I think of you every time I use one of my chic French kitchen towels! Enjoy your time, this must feel like a petite relief of sorts and you deserve it.

  5. Take care, My French Corner--reading your blog is always such a joy. I hope you say hello again soon!

  6. Thank you for blogging! I've so enjoyed it! Especially your Week-end Simple series.

    Au revoir! Ciao!

  7. A, it would be my pleasure to meet up for a Swirl! I hope to be in D.C. next spring; I'll shoot you an email once I have plans.

  8. I will miss your blog, but understand about the chosen chore of blogging versus the necessary obligation of meeting the demand of an elevated workload. My selfish wish is you will be able to post monthly, but sometimes it's good to take a break. You have inspired me to live a French-inspired life!

  9. I'll miss the little peak into your days and thoughts. The weekend simple posts are one of my faves- gets me thinking of little things that make me happy. Try not to work too much.

  10. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas. I've enjoyed reading your blog and will miss hearing from you. You've been very inspiring--I especially loved your closet re-do and your weekend simple ideas. Although I've never tried to blog, I can imagine that it would be time-consuming so I understand your need to take a break. I hope we'll see you blogging again some time! Merci mille fois!

  11. A,
    I'm with you. Although ironically, I did post something this morning. But I've pretty much lost all my readers anyway, so it's almost just for me now.
    I hope we can keep in touch via email.

  12. I am doing the same thing. : ) It's time.
    Blogging has it's pros and cons.

  13. I've loved reading your blog each night and especially reading your weekend simple advice. I'm lucky to get to see you each and every day and continue to learn from you, even if French Corner is saying goodbye. ck

  14. Thanks so much for all the lovely posts and the giveaways (I love my edition of "French Cooking in 10 Minutes"). It's been fun. Best of luck to you.
