If there is one thing I could do no matter my mood, it’s drink red wine, eat cheese and top with Un petit cornichon. My enthusiasm for France began in high school but blossomed and became real when vacationing with my wife’s family. The bustle of the street market, the smell of the fresh produce warming in the morning sun, a slowing of time and the ease of the days. France is where I am truly ‘off’. I proposed to my wife in Paris and it was a moment that will forever be in my heart and memory.
