Wishing you a very happy Holiday season

by Sharon Santoni

Happy Holidays to you!!

Wow, that was a whirlwind of a year! Am I the only one to think that Christmas came around much faster this year?!

I am so happy to get to the end of 2023 and look back on all that has happened this year. And I wanted to take a moment to thank our readers, our clients, and our tour guests for being so awesome!

Everyone on our small team here at MFCH is grateful for our wonderful clients, readers and followers. When My French Country Home started as a blog in 2010 there was never the intention to grow into a business. I still remember the first time I got a comment on the blog; or the first time someone shared a photo of mine on Facebook. It is astounding and very humbling to watch our audience grow.

Today, it is our joy and our privilege to keep bringing you the latest French news; the most beautiful French brands; and share with you our favorite regions of France on our tours and itineraries.

Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm for our work here!

We are going quiet here for the next week, as we all make the most of our families at this special time of year. We are thinking about all of you too, wishing you very happy Holidays and hoping that you are able to spend some special time with your loved ones over the Holiday season. In this crazy world that moves faster and faster, let’s never forget our most important task, to love each other.

We’ll be back next week , ready to jump into the new year, and we look forward to seeing you there!

Looks like I’ve had a bit more of the bubbly than I thought as I wrote my comment above….I misspelled my very own name!
The sentiment remains the same!

I was so happy to discover your blog way back in the beginning! It awoke in me an overwhelming desire to visit France and begin traveling. I remember visiting your home in 2012 and staying in your sweet cottage. I’ll will be visiting France again for the 4th time in May 2024 to stay in Provence & Paris! So much more to explore and experience in this world. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us over the years!

My recent dinner at https://whitehorsetavern1880.com/ was a delightful experience from start to finish. The ambiance exudes old-world charm, and the menu offers a tempting selection of dishes made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. The service was attentive without being intrusive, and the staff made me feel right at home. It’s clear that White Horse Tavern takes pride in providing a memorable dining experience.
