A year ago today, with three cats in tow, we moved into our new home, La Biochère.  In that time, we have started to ring the changes and slowly but surely, this big old farmhouse and acre of land is becoming a home.

This is a reflection of the last twelve months, depicted in ‘before and after’ photos….
