T + 7

Me voici!  Sipping a little Côtes du Rhône rouge while enjoying a picnic after roaming the market in Uzès this past March.  Note the twinkle in my eyes.  A little wind blown from fighting with M. Mistral, the wind that didn't stop for 7 solid days.
My BFF group and I take off for France in one week.  I have an itinerary that gets tweaked daily... Paris and all the usual wonderful sights to see, then off to Provence for markets in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, St. Rémy de Provence, and Villeneuve-lez-Avignon, a visit to a goat farm (courtesy of Mme P and her brother), Tavel rosé tasting, dinner with the Allemand family,  lavender fields near Gordes, canoeing under the Pont du Gard, perhaps a visit to meet Kristin Espinasse and Chief Grape at their home, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the beach in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and dinner at Chef Érick's cousin's restaurant, Le Mazet du Vaccarès, in the Camargue.

La France, je t'attends avec impatience!

Bon appétit et bon voyage!  Pack those bags, ladies!
