Artfully Meandering: The MIA Excuse #1 - France

This is one of the reasons. I was in Clermont-Ferrand, France !!! for the month of July (for work).

I fell in love with France
I fell in love with Clermont-Ferrand
It's the French equivalent of where I live in South Carolina
Mountains, small city
Just my style

And, bonus!
France: the place where food is art
eating is an event
and everyone is educated in the "best of" food

fresh, unprocessed treats
simple combinations of flavors that make your mouth water
portions still significant
but the flavors make you pause, savor and adore the flavors

eating becomes an event
it's part of the culture
not a side-thought like "drive-through" culture

stop, eat, enjoy, refresh, rejuvenate through food and friends

I SOOOO could handle living in France for a while. I lost 5 lbs while dining on these outstanding, mouth-watering combinations of delectable food. Not only was I treated well, I'm in love with the food and the healthy style of living.

But, I'm enjoying living near my family (3 hours away).
We'll see what the future brings. I'm open!

MIA Reason #2: Next Post


  1. France is a fabulous reason for being MIA!!!
    i hope you get the opportunity to relocate there for awhile...
    i'm certain your family will visit often!

  2. Nancy! So nice of you to drop by and keep me on your list! I'm so far behind right now... just starting to get back on track. Can't wait. France was delightful. My family is all for it, too! :-D

  3. I was wondering where the heck you were. I have been following you for so long that I tend to get worried when you totally disappear for so long.

  4. Shaiha, thank you for stopping by and missing me... I have missed everyone as well. I cannot believe how fast time goes and how far behind I can get on things. Thank you again...
