Quatre filles à Paris!

Soit it was the weather (glorious), soit it was the company (unbeatable) but this trip was my BEST EVER to Paris. During my travels I’ve visited Paris quite frequently. I know, lucky me! In the freezing winter with family, in the summer for work, with friends, for New Year’s Eve and in transit. This trip with three of … Continue reading

Paris is always a good idea

Paris is always a good idea

Especially when you have family to eat with! We started our visit by roaming up and down the Champs Elysées eating all the gauffres and crepes.

The Dordogne Joshua and I went for a … Continue reading

Mulled Wine:  Persimmons (fruit of Christmas!): Two weeks of Christmas holidays, four countries, snow, beach, pastries galore, castles, cocktails and rendez-vous with my favourite people.
