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.

Somebody else was happy about the one day of sunshine that we have had (in weeks). Loulou enjoying the joie de vivre of green grass and warm rays,
oh so not wanting to go home ☀️❤️🐶 #ilovemydog #happiness #purelove #dogsmaketheworldabetterplace #itsthelittlethings #sunshine #lamericaineinparis

As I run around Paris trying to launch a new store I can hardly believe this same time last year I was running around the states visiting family. At that time my business had not yet started and I was full of uncertainty wondering what the future would hold. Little did I know. A business launch, a move to Paris and a new cookie shop tucked away in a little street of my new city were all awaiting me. Amazing what change a year can bring... 🙏 #vermont #dreambig #ayearofchange #grateful #lamericaineinparis

À bientôt Provence! A whirlwind trip down south to a whirlwind, not long enough weekend in Paris with family and now onto a vegan cookie shop take over 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #provence #familytime #tourist #rsblooms #lamericaineinparis

Spent a couple of days wandering the French countryside with family. After zipping around the other side of the hill we ended up here in Gordes for aperitifs. Mother Nature, the silence, the beauty, the slowness... as always Provence is pure magic ✨ #provence #gordes #familytime #magic #lamericaineinparis

A beautiful escape, even if just for a brief moment, to forget the worries and let your mind get lost in the garden... ✨ #jardinduluxembourg #paris🇫🇷 #flowergarden #lamericaineinparis

Just before the rain... ☔️⁣

For those who don’t follow my business account I am so thrilled to share that Dodo Cookie Co. will soon be opening the first vegan, organic cookie shop in Paris. Still a bit in shock and filled with so many different emotions, but beyond thrilled for this very big and scary new adventure. Please follow along @dodocookieco for more cookie news. ❤️

A warm summer night and a tiny half moon🌛#halfmoon #summertime #bonnenuit #paris #lamericaineinprovence

When you no longer have an outdoor space for a garden you plant a tiny one in your kitchen. A small tomato plant, fresh basil and mint. My green kitchen nook. I am hoping for at least one home grown tomato this summer 🍅 #kitchengarden #freshherbs #home #lamericaineinprovence

A sizzling summer week in the city. Scorching days with evenings for many spent flocking along the Seine... 🔥 #summerdays #heatwave #parisinthesummer #lamericaineinprovence

After a rather challenging week of work, today I am treating myself to finding blooms for my balcony and to some therapeutic flower gardening 🌼🐛#greenthumb #gardeningtherapy #mothernature #summerinparis #lamericaineinprovence

A birthday last week for that silly one. May you find your happy place in this new spin around the sun... happy birthday @eobre 😘 #birthdaymonth #birthdaylove #birthdayboy #besilly #laugh #smile #newyear #newbeginning #wisernotolder #donttakelifetooseriously #lamericaineinprovence

One of the joys in returning to the countryside... the birdies and their beautiful song 🐦 #birdwatcher #birdsong #natureloverforever #provence #lamericaineinprovence

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

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
