Across the lines
It was quite a surprise that I suddenly wanted to take pictures again. So I picked up the camera for the first time in many months, cradling it to my chest with one hand in-between the clicks, happy to see again.  That is a gift that you gave to me. Yes, yo...

Let's remember, love wins
Hello there, today's post is about Provence in the visuals only. The text is an appeal for a cause that will touch many of you though, so I wanted to write about it. If it isn't your thing, no worries and see you soon...  Our personal stories can take up so...

Teddy update: Thank you so much to all of you living in the United States who expressed an interest in adopting Teddy. Unfortunately, I have heard back from the shelter and they are not willing to let him be adopted sight unseen by anyone so far away.  This...

Well, I have a fun surprise to share with you. It certainly was one for me!  My friend Anthony hinted a while back that he had something up his sleeve, so imagine my delight when he sent me a gorgeous magazine with an article about the new company that he i...

Climbing the walls
In this corner of the world, nature is waking up with a stifled, slightly embarrassed yawn. Winter has overslept its welcome and the ground is buzzing with the stretch of new greenery while tiny fists have pushed out of the barest of branches overnight. A t...

Strolling the brocante in Arles - part deux
Call me spoiled - une enfant-gaieté - but I tend to have low expectations for  the brocante or flea market in Arles held on the first Wednesday of the month. It might be, possibly, one of the few things that I do tend to take for granted in this mythic 2000...
Call me spoiled - une enfant-gaieté - but I tend to have low expectations for the brocante or flea market in Arles held on the first Wednesday of the month. It might be, possibly, one of the few things that I do tend to take for granted in this mythic 2000 and change year old city.

Unfolding the bloom
I
think that today I am ready to tell you what is going on. I have been
ghost-dancing around this decision for quite some time now.  I hope that you will be patient and understanding. Because more than ever I realize that "the only way past is through." S...
Do you remember when we had the head-on collision in the beginning of January? While we both were so fortunate to walk away physically unscathed, it became apparent, within days, that a lot of important emotional issues had been shaken loose and brought to the surface.

On the rue de l'Amphithéâtre - Arles
Sweep out the cobwebs, shake out those shadows. Sometimes we need to go right back to where we started. In Arles, after moving in and wandering the cross-caught streets, I fell fast in love with the tales of its shutters and doors. Cliché, absolutely, and s...
Sweep out the cobwebs, shake out those shadows. Sometimes we need to go right back to where we started. In Arles, after moving in and wandering the cross-caught streets, I fell fast in love with the tales of its shutters and doors. Cliché, absolutely, and some would say that I should now move ...

Renovating the kitchen floor - chez Anthony
Now that spring has officially sprung, I imagine that some of you are thinking towards what sprucing up projects might need attending to around your home. C'est dans l'air, n'est ce-pas? As it has been a while since we have visited  the amazing renovation p...
As it has been a while since we have visited the amazing renovation project that my friend Anthony is undertaking with his partner, I thought that we could pay a little visit, all the better to reassure you that no matter what may be on your "à faire" list... ...I highly doubt that anything will ...

L'Harmonie - a locals bistro in Nimes
As we steamroll through March (I know, I don't understand how this has happened either), I imagine that some of my more meticulous friends are already deep into planning their upcoming vacations to the South of France this summer. And as we all know, that m...
As we steamroll through March (I know, I don't understand how this has happened either), I imagine that some of my more meticulous friends are already deep into planning their upcoming vacations to the South of France this summer. And as we all know, that means food research, yes?

From here to there
  Bonsoir, mes amis. I thought it was high time that I check in with you all, especially as some of you have been preparing to send out the search dogs. While I have been slowing down the pace of posting, I do have plenty of material prepared to share with ...
The play of light and shadows caressed the timeworn surfaces as I skated across the well-oiled parqueterie. Until finally, I stopped moving and just stood in the center of the room, surprised to find myself alone. It is amazing how in such moments one can feel lifted by something so far beyond ...
