Breakfast in the Garden

May 31, 2017

We’ve been sleeping a bit less since we arrived due to the baby’s jetlag.  No biggie — honestly I think it will settle soon, he’s getting closer to his schedule back home and he seems to be really enjoying spending time with his young cousins.  Obviously we all feel very lucky to be here.   I take care of him for most of the night and sleep in the morning and Will takes over around 5 a.m.  which means that…

My Favorite White Dress

May 30, 2017

Yesterday was the last evening we had with our friends with England so we took the opportunity to take a final tour through the village.    I can’t get over the spectacular beauty of the walls of climbing flowers.   We’re all very enthusiastic about photography which made for an amusing time — we looked a bit over the top with so many cameras, you could definitely spot the tourists!  Nevertheless, we giggled our way through the narrow streets, finding…

Sunset Stop

May 29, 2017

We’ve had a lovely, quiet weekend with Will’s family and childhood friends at the house in France.   There are several more children, including a very little baby;  we have been spending our time lounging in the sun and running to the market in search of fresh, delicious ingredients for dinner.   Will’s mum bathed and put the baby to bed last night so that Will and I could go off for a little  — we ended up staying pretty close…

My Favorite Store on Earth!

May 26, 2017

We have a lot of family and friends arriving today and we’re so excited!  Will and I snuck off to the beach yesterday for a quick lunch and soak in the sun.  Le Club 55 is very special to me, my family has been coming here for generations.    Even though the day started a bit cool and overcast, I was so happy to take my spot in the sand, and to do some people watching while waiting for the sun…

Walls of Bougainvillea

May 25, 2017

France is in bloom right now!  After a day of stocking up on supplies and running errands for our guest arrivals on Friday, Will and I headed out for a sunset walk and a leisurely glass of wine in a nearby town.  We were amazed by an apparently endless sea of walls of Bougainvillea.  As I mentioned in my previous post, this seems to be prime time for French flowers.  Forgive me if these photos are a total overload, I just wanted…

First Glimpse of France

May 24, 2017

We arrived in France yesterday morning after a red-eye flight from New York.  The baby was amazing on the flight!  Fortunately for us (and less fortunately for Delta), the flight was pretty empty because of bad weather and missed connections.  The flight team was amazing and immediately re-assigned the baby and I to a full row so he managed to sprawl out while I regarded him for the rest of the journey.  I think I did manage to catch a little…
