Good Sunday to you!
Today, I volunteered at a vide-grenier in the suburbs of Bordeaux in support of a local association -- Cancer Support France!
It is a wonderful organization that provides support by via a help line to anglophones in our region.
I was very happy to help out today and in return volunteering helped me practice my French!
That is what you call a win-win! At the end of the day, we were all beat, however we also managed to raise more than 300€ for the organization! woot-woot!
It seems the weather gods smiled down upon us, as it was not too hot nor too cold
and only drizzled rain for less than five minutes.
I also made out like a bandit, bringing home new girlie goodies to add to my collection, AND
spending less than 1€ on my finds (my lunch cost more!) but I'll save that for another blog post!
After our long day, we packed up and I headed back into town to go home.
Traffic was a nightmare due to these rugby hooligans that crowded the trams and streets!
God Bless these crazy Frenchies!
Bonjour et Bienvenue!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
