We just arrived in Champagne France and the Marne Valley, for our first European house sit and the beginning of our life abroad.  Its so appropriate that we would start our journey in Darla’s favorite thing/place on earth–Champagne!

Just down the road from where we are staying,  is a gorgeous Mansion/Manor with the most beautiful park like setting.  the Perfect Fall environment especially for newly landed Californians who never see fall colors.
