Hello from Paris!
Just a quick post this morning as I was finally able to load some photos on my unreliable laptop! We are spending our last honeymoon days in Paris, but before I share photos from our recent days I wanted to share a few photos of the gorgeous garden of Monet we visited in Giverny and a delicious seasonal salad I made whilst visiting my brother in Provence.
I hope to be back soon with lots more photos!
Have a lovely weekend!
