Crash Course: Guide to St. Tropez

July 20, 2018

As promised here is our St Tropez guide. We have been spending summers in France (St. Tropez) since I was very little.    My earliest memories are of the crowded, hot market, weaving my way through the crowds hand in hand with my older cousin.    We still love to visit the market and I find that in May/June when we visit, it’s far less crowded than it is in mid-August.   Still, I recommend going early if you can, everything…

Quick Post: My Top 5 Summer Staples

July 19, 2018

I’m not going to lie, I brought a lot of clothes to France this year.   Partly because it was a long trip, but also because I knew that there would be so many events and occasions on which I would wish to wear x or y.   It might have been a bit overkill, and I actually prefer to pack in a more efficient way (lesson learned) because no matter how much I bring with me, I tend to slip into…

Romantic Dinner for Two

July 18, 2018

I just realized how much I have been talking about romance these days!!  Chalk it up to putting our feet up for a bit in France and letting some of our daily stresses form home melt away.    It’s also really hard not to feel that dreamy, relaxed loving way when you sink into such a beautiful, serene environment.   And for me, spending less time on my phone is such a delicious way to reconnect with the people right in…

Dreamy Routines: Patisserie Run

July 17, 2018

One of our favorite parts of being in France is the food.     The produce is out of this world delicious.   The melon is the best I have ever had, it’s no wonder my grandmother had one every morning for breakfast.    The cheeses, fresh fish, sausages, croissants and pastries are also a highlight for us.    While we didn’t miss a single morning for croissants — they were always on the table, usually still warm — doing the (pastry)…

The Most Romantic Nights…

July 13, 2018

A few years ago, my cousin got married at our family house in France.    The house was brimming over with women preparing for the big weekend, and there was so much chatter about manicures and hair appointment times, I could tell that my (new) husband was hitting his limit (bored senseless, and he has a very high tolerance!).    I quickly and quietly extracted him for a mind-clearing drive.   Naturally, we ended up at the beach.   It was a…

Poolside Cards With Over the Moon!

July 12, 2018

One of the most special things about the house in France is the pool.    It sits down the hill between the two houses and provides an oasis for guests, as well as a totally relaxed daytime activity, especially after a big night.    It has lots of day beds and floats and is just a really lovely relaxed way to spend the day at home with no pressure or agenda.     I remember growing up, we spent most days…
