It was so lovely to hear your voice again (your English speaking voice is not rusty at all!)and also to learn that you are well and life is good. I would love to hear some French literature as part of a future podcast.

Hello ma chère Isa !
Oh, le tissu de ta future robe est somptueux !
Et j'aime beaucoup le lit de ta pépette, je vois qu'on fait toutes pareilles, on les mets au ras du sol ... chez nous, on a commandé une paire de lits empilables sur la redoute, et un pour chaque gremlins ... je pense que le matelas est à moins de 10 cm du sol ... d'ailleurs, c'est un peu galère pour repasser dessous ...
Gros bisous à toute la tribu !

Oh, lovely podcast, Isabelle! So good to hear from you again! :) And yes, hearing some passages being read is a wonderful treat; if you read in French and then in English, doubly such a treat. It's very kind of you to do. (And I want to reassure you, being a native English speaker myself, that your spoken English is absolutely fine! Truly so.) Thank you again for a fascinating podcast, and the wonderful pattern information, as well. (I love your daughter's Montessori-inspired room decor, as well.) :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi there! I just found your podcast and I love it! The subject matter is so close to my heart and your unique and lovely accent keeps me mesmerised. I requested to follow you on Instagram where I am mrsemiller2008. Regarding reading Passages in French and then English: yes!! I took several years of French in school, and while I am incredibly rusty, it makes my heart sing to hear it spoken. U
