Our Quirky 300 Year-Old French Home Renovation Adventure / My Vintage French “hypnotiques” pharmacopia & the importance of balancing acts

We have always supported each other

But sometimes, like this week after our big road trip to deliver our furniture from Southern France, and sleeping in 5 beds in 5 days during one of the most stressful international moves of my life, I’m in pain and Sean’s irritable and we’re both strung out.

But thankfully, as you can see in the picture above, we really know how to lift each other up.

Even so, days like this make me wish for a perfect sedative. Like Kalmine, (below) which claims to cure malaise, fatigue, fever, insomnia, and pain all in one little pill!

And gin, Sean says. A little bit of gin.
