Start to Summer

Start to Summer

It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the end of May.

Soon the cigales will return to Provence and the lavender will begin to bloom.


Mistrals will turn warm and olive trees will shimmer in the sunlight.


Days will be filled with time at the beach and family vacations.


There is a slower rhythm to France in the summer and I am looking forward to it.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all those celebrating this weekend.

Blogging in a Different Way

Blogging in a Different Way

Blogging in a Different Way

I can write or I can get lost in inspirational photos.  That is my truth….whether I like it or not.

I have learned that each of these processes are very different tasks for me and not necessarily ones that work well together.  Once I head down the rabbit hole of a visual media site I can get lost and off track for hours.

Combining the two in to the process of creating a blog post had become something that I put off until the ‘right time’… if that really existed in a daily routine.

Blogging in a different way

There are so many place to find what inspires me visually.  Be it on my Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr or Facebook, there is no shortage of beauty to be found.

What I don’t do on those formats is write.  I had to face up to the fact that it was time for me to get back to sharing stories about living in France, whether it be the charm or the insane frustration at times, or the excitement of shopping in the brocantes.  After all, this was the reason I started this blog.  It had just evolved in to something else over time.

Is this the right path?  Only time will tell, but things are off and running as of today!  Just writing this post without the pressure to fill it with the perfect images was a breeze.

The brocante will still operate, shopping trips will still be scheduled and the blog will go on, but each will have time devoted to them.

I hope that this is the motivation that gets me back on the road to writing again….and to sharing what is inspiring me at the moment.

Stay tuned there is more to come!
