I only spent a day in the French Rivera, first stopping in Éze and then going to Nice. They gave us a quick tour on the bus to see the city and then let us wander for a couple of hours. I walked down a gorgeous sea side street and then turned the corner to find a wonderful farmer’s market. They had every kind of cheese (of course!), fresh peonies, and tons of fruit, veggies, and french souvenirs. I snacked on a juicy white peach and my cousins said their plums were divine.
In my goldilocks-esque opinion, in London everyone walks too fast, in Barcelona everyone walks too slow, but in France it’s just right.
I love the holiday season! I bought red wrapping paper with white polka dots and I can’t wait to wrap gifts with it! The smell of pine, wreaths, bells, trees, lights, poinsettias, globe snowmens (LOVE)!
I just can’t wait to get home and start making my apartment look like Christmas on crack. These are some pretty decor ideas I found on pinterest. I am definitely making the felt tree. Any DIY Christmas ideas you’d like to share with me?

I really need to get back into my french classes. It was difficult (and slightly humorous) trying to get to Versailles from Paris without understanding French. We got on a train that we thought was going the right direction and headed over to Versailles to see the beautiful Chateau de Versailles. Versailles is an adorable quaint city that also happens to have a palace in the middle of it all. There were people jogging through the garden. What an amazing site for a jog. The gardens are gorgeous and gigantic- I’ve never seen all of it (and Marie Antoinette’s estate!) so I will definitely need to take another trip back.
and for your viewing pleasure:
