Hi, I’m Deborah!
The Barefoot Blogger
Ten years ago, I started writing the blog as a “letter home” to keep my friends and family updated on my life as an American expatriate in France. It was intended to document my new reality through stories and pictures, capturing the events and emotions I encountered…
The blog that became so much more than a letter to friends and family
To my delight, people began to follow my adventures. Over time, The Barefoot Blogger found a special place in the hearts and minds of those who dream of living abroad, particularly in France.
As a solo female, who still has challenges speaking the language, my ups and downs continue to encourage others to reach beyond their boundaries. To be curious. To say “yes, I can” for as long as I can. Along with you, I continue to explore, to laugh, and to learn about my new home, Uzès, and France — the land of castles, chateaus, and champagne.
I hope you enjoy going along on this journey. Most of all, please keep in touch. Life’s so much more fun when I know you’re traveling with me.
