Among the Wildflowers of Gordes

She's So Bright - Among the Wildflowers of Gordes

I wish I could spend most every day in the south of France, but since I can’t, I’ll have to just enjoy it when I can. The town of Gordes, nestled quite nicely in the Provence region of southeast France, is a stunning hilltop of stone buildings and rocky outcrops. …

I love Parisian cafés. The marble table tops, rimmed in brass, with elaborate cast-iron feet; the colorful awnings with French scrawl; chic wicker seats braided in a perfect, repeating pattern.

A Wedding in France

One of the beautiful venues we took a look at!

Years ago, when a friend asked where I’d like to get married, I said, “maybe somewhere in France.” It was a wispy dream, one of those items you write down in a list of things you’d like to do in life. I hadn’t thought much beyond that short response, but …
