Summer Interlude

Summer Interlude
I still need to write up a Travel Journal entry on our fabulous time spent in the city of Versailles and, of course, Paris … but for now, I thought I’d share a glimpse of my summer with you. It’s been filled with glorious flea marketing, beautiful European towns and villages, crazygorgeous vintage cars, fun dinner parties and learning new and delicious recipes. Things have been a little hectic as my honey is getting ready to go on business leave but I think it’s made me savor this sweet summer even more.

Metz, France. Can never get enough of that incredible country …

Trying my hand at mint-infused salmon … served on my ‘new’ 1800s French kitchen table and Sarreguemines settings.

    Oh I LOVE that ring! It reminds me of Kate’s ring 😉

    Your blue nail polish goes perfectly well with that beautiful ring! I have a smaller version of the ring which I lost last year. (I’m pretty sure you were inspired by Kate’s engagement ring?) 😀 Where did you buy it?

    Pat: Thanks. My ring is actually an old family heirloom so there was no inspiration there but I do find it funny that everyone thinks it’s inspired by Kate. ;o)

    I would love to go to France and Belgium. Do you speak both languages or were you able to get around fine with English only?
