Yesterday was a momentous day. Yesterday I got my French passport – I am officially Franco-American. The joy, relief, and sense of accomplishment that I feel is beyond explanation. The goals, the visionboards, the to-dos, the visualization… The administrative hoops, official translations, and timbres fiscaux… All that has gone into this massive undertaking for the ...
