L'Americaine In Provence

Provence lifestyle blog, Provence tours, Provence vacations, cooking, baking, antique shopping, France, French lifestyle blog, French life

This blog is the story of my year in Provence, life in the country in a new country and my experiences with the people, culture, surroundings and of course, food. Being neither a writer nor a photographer by trade this blog is my labor of love creative project, sharing glimpses of the ordinary that bring joy to our new daily life. Inspired by next chapters, new beginnings and slow-living. I am happy to share stories of Provençal life viewed through my American lens.

Loulou ❤️

One of my many souvenirs of Provence... long plane tree lined roads 🌳💚🌿 #planetree #countryroads #getlost #provence #lamericaineinprovence

Cookies are definitely my thing, which is probably why I started a cookie company. Vegan cookies nonetheless in a country where dairy is an institution. But why not eat sweet and help the planet and animals at the same time? I promise you won’t regret it. Happy Friday folks 🌿 @dodocookieco.

Earth Day... Mama Earth I hope future generations are able to enjoy your beauty, experience your wonders and learn from all your amazing and diverse creatures that live among us. I hope we all soon understand that every choice we make affects your health and the future lives of all children. I hope we become less selfish and more caring. Thank you Mama Earth for all that you provide for us. Thank you for your magnificence. Thank you for teaching us the profound error of our ways. May we learn from your wisdom. May we have the strength to act and change. May we remember that you are our most sacred temple today and everyday. 🌏 #earthday2019 #lovetheplanet #everyday

This photo was taken this morning. Perhaps a smaller shell of herself prior to last night but she still stands beautifully. Damaged but not destroyed. There really are no words to express the feeling of watching history burn before your eyes. A very poignant reminder of the fragility of life, of each moment and of everything that surrounds us. With the already pledged donations and more sure to follow Notre Dame will be rebuilt and may she stand in her former glory once again. Thank you to all the fire fighters who put their lives on the line and who fought tirelessly through the night to save her ❤️ #notredame #cherisheverymoment #pompiersdeparis #parisjetaime #lamericaineinprovence

I celebrated a big birthday this week. A milestone actually. I was going to try to write something inspiring about age but then I looked at this image and couldn’t take it so seriously. What I will say is that I hope the upcoming years are filled with what I see in this photo. First Loulou, my furry soulmate who basically is me in dog form and shares my special day. Second... happiness, laughter, love, silliness and a woman who, with each passing day, sits more truly in her own skin. As I walk through the door of a new decade I know I am entering it in the most truest version of myself that I have ever been. And this my friends is one of the best birthday gifts that any age could give me. For all those who reached out this week Loulou and I thank you for all the birthday love ❤️ #birthdaylove #betterwithage #doggykisses #ilovemydog #newchapter #lamericaineinprovence

Spring seems to have started its magical transition with the first blossoms of the season dusting Paris in glorious shades of soft pink 🌸🌸🌸 #springtime #springinparis #blossoms #mothernature #stopandsmelltheroses #lamericaineinprovence

After a 7 hour wait to board a train in Paris I finally did and I woke up here in London. A long trade show week ahead trying to sell cookies (@dodocookieco) to the U.K. market but it is nice to start and end the days by the marina where the docks are peppered with cranes and odd buildings that remind me of little gingerbread houses 🏡 #tradeshowlife #nonstop #sales #gingerbreadhouse #london #lamericaineinprovence

Drizzly and gray but still beautiful. After a successful work meeting (@dodocookieco) I wandered through the winter garden and my thoughts took me to how I ended up here. An American in Paris trying to build a vegan cookie company. It’s actually quite ironic. While I am excited to call this city home, that day it seemed a bit surreal to be standing in the Jardin de Luxembourg, knowing that in the last three years I traded the village of Laguna Beach for a village in Provence and now for the city of Paris. Amid all this history it is hard not to reflect. I wonder how many other people have stood before me in this same garden holding their dreams high, hoping, and wondering what the future will bring... 💛 #dreambig #itsnevertoolate #parisienne #jardindeluxembourg #lamericaineinprovence

Today I decided to share a photo from a demonstration which happened literally right outside the door of my building. While I am not going to discuss the politics of what is happening in France, I can say that Paris was in chaos yesterday. Whether these acts were committed by the Gillets Jaunes or other groups (marching with them) I am not sure, but it was a bit unsettling to see the number of people cheering on the destruction. While I fully believe in the power of freedom of speech and am all for demonstrating and speaking your voice peacefully, this didn’t feel peaceful. Burning and destroying property is neither productive nor beneficial to any person or any cause (just in my opinion)... but clearly there are a lot of unhappy and/or angry people in France who feel this is the best way to voice their suffering... #lamericaineinprovence

While Instagram often displays only the beautiful aspects of our lives, I can say that 2018 was a year of tremendous growth and new beginnings, but also a year filled with a lot of stress. As I wake up to 2019 in a new city I am welcoming the vast unknowns of this new year in what will be a very different life for me in France. I am wishing you all a new year filled with much happiness, kindness and love. Thanks for following along with me ❤️ #newyear #newbeginnings #paris #lamericaineinprovence

A quiet Christmas Eve morning thinking about all my loved ones around the world, as well as all of those less fortunate. Wishing for peace on earth for all of us and at the very least may you find some love, peace and happiness this holiday season✨ ✨✨ #peaceonearth #holidaylove #christmas #dsholiday #lamericaineinprovence

Woke up to country roads, foggy meadows, fresh air and bird song. Back in Provence for a Christmas holiday in the countryside... #countryholiday #naturelover #mothernature #winter #provence #lamericaineinprovence

My days start here with a long walk with my dog along the Seine. December has been incredibly mild (and wet) but this morning was exceptional. Mother Nature painted the sky in beautiful, dreamy pink clouds. For me it is always so humbling to see the beauty of nature surrounding us wherever we may be in the world. I had to stop and pinch myself...✨ #mothernature #winter #morning #sunrise #itsthelittlethings #lamericaineinprovence

Fulfilling a dream that I have kept in my heart for a very long time as I can now say that I am a Parisian ❤️ #parisjetaime #newchapter #dream #parisian #lamericaineinprovence

But first coffee... ☕️☕️ ☕️ #coffee #wakeup #morningroutine #vegan #oatmilk #lamericaineinprovence

I arrived in Provence not knowing what to expect and I leave changed, for the better I believe. My years here were transitional but filled with so much discovery, learning, healing and growth. Certainly there have been ups and many downs along the way, but I embraced the change for a different way of life and ultimately found so much more. While I begin a big, new adventure down a much different road I know that Provence will always keep a piece of my heart. Next stop... Paris ❤️ #nextchapter #newpath #memories #provence #lamericaineinprovence (📷 @eobre)

The golden orange colors of autumn paint the Provence countryside, the leaves now blanketing the ground in their final breath before slowly fading into winter 🍂 #autumn #foliage #mothernature #provence #lamericaineinprovence

I haven’t picked up a camera in months as it seems my days are now comprised of trying to run a new business, baking and cookie dough testing (@dodocookieco)... but this weekend I stole a brief moment before the rain began to wander down to my favorite vineyard, hoping to catch a glimpse of the morning fog rolling through the changing grape vines. Although the vineyard was grey and moody, this thick fog blanketing a nearby meadow of colorful, autumnal vines perfectly fits the weekend mood...🍂🌨 #autumn #mothernature #fog #provence #lamericaineinprovence

After an emotional week my heart was very happy to wake up to this precious face ❤️ #kismet #purelove #rescuedogs #adoptdontshop #ilovemydog #morningcuddles #lamericaineinprovence

Settling back into Provence, where the season feels more like summer than the first weekend of autumn. After a busy work week I welcome a quiet Sunday morning and the peacefulness of the countryside... #sunday #homesweethome #mothernature #september #livethelittlethings #provence #lamericaineinprovence

Wine tasting through the Virginia countryside with my family. The very wet and foggy day didn’t dampen my heart. Heading back to France I am so thankful for the time that I had 💜 #grapes #vineyardvines #winetasting #familytime #virginia #lamericaineinprovence

Exploring Washington DC with my mom. Not having been here in so very many years it has been interesting to visit the nation’s capital and to see the many new monuments. The Korean War Memorial was one of our favorites 🙌🏻 #washingtondc #koreanwarmemorial #washingtonmall #neverforget #lamericaineinprovence
