Pet food laid in=check.
Clothes brought up to Paris-grade=Sigh. Somehow even after more than a decade of doing it, I never manage to get this one down. And what’s with the 60 degree highs in Provence & Italy people? That throws all my packing off. I’m starting to believe in global chilling.
We spend a chunk of every year in France, and we’re off tomorrow for this year’s chunk! Provence, where I’ll be doing a lot of research for the Rose series, Italy, where we’ll be taking a much-needed break, and Alsace and Paris. I’ll try to post some photos from time to time, but it can get tricky! In the meanwhile, here is a little glimpse of one of my favorite places along the Côte d’Azur, Haut de Cagnes, which along with Mougins was a major inspiration for Gabriel’s town of Sainte-Mère (in THE CHOCOLATE ROSE).
What are your summer plans?
