I am back




After being away for almost five weeks, i am happy to be home. My trip to France was wonderful ! So many lovely villages we discovered, so many sweet peole we met.

The Gers is in the south west of France and  hubby and i just fell in love with their big rolling hills, its people with their lovely accent, the peacefulness and the wonderful weather.
Little villages with flowers everywhere, rosemary and lavender looking like big bushes, not tiny plants like the ones i have home. Fig trees growing everywhere, just like a weed ! I could actually walk in a street and pick one along the way. They were delectable !!

Since we have been home, we've been quite busy just trying to get to our normal life. Not an easy task, but i was happy to see my home and family.  I am just missing my daughter Geneviève who is in Brussels. It was so good to spend some time with her. I wish i could show you more, but it would take forever. Just needed to come here and let you know  how wonderful my vacation in France was. I will be back sometime next week, hopefully, cause i'd love to make another giveaway.  I just need to sort things out and see what will be the surprised.
Hope your day is a happy one ♥

Warm welcome home, dearest sweet Monique, the cozy-up season has begun. I know you have beautiful memories of la douce France and getting together with Genevieve.
I just love to stroll these little villages and streets .. making me wonder who would be living behind the lovely colored front doors..
Happy you are back my friend. Love to you xxx

c'est cool de te lire à nouveau. j'imagine bien qu'il faut maintenant du temps pour un retour au quotidien, affronter l'automne après le gers, etc. xxx

:-} I know how it is with photographs trying to stick to just a few, to express so much. These photographs are perfect though! That first house with the green shutters and skirting green plants and water.

Do come say hi.
