My wife Sarah & I moved to the Lot in 2001 where our daughter was born. We turned our house into a B&B. Five years later we moved back to California, kept the house and visited as often as possible. Now we are going back again and dropping our 10yr. old in the nearby 'one room schoolhouse' and reinvigorating the B&B. I will run the B&B while Sarah continues working in California until we can generate finances from here. It is no small sacrifice that we make for our daughter and dream of living in France together again.
Please check out the blog that I have created which will chronicle our travails. http://manoirautoire.tumblr.com/ There is a link to the B&B website there. http://www.manoirautoire.com/en/manoir-autoire.html
I hope to welcome some of you there and continue to enjoy the debate on survivefrance. Thank you for all the fine advice and community provided by all.
