The Weekend . . .
As I write today’s post, the rain is finally falling after more than a month without one of my favorite type of weather forecasts. There is something so very calming and restorative about the rain especially after days of long hot, sweltering summer temperatures. And as I enjoy this temporal pleasure, I am still in shock that August has arrived. July seems to have whisked by albeit offering many wonderful lessons and memories.
I hope the new month has begun with wonderful hopes and a few more leisurely days ahead. I’m excited to share a new addition to the blog this week that I’ve been contemplating and then working on for a while (unknowingly since the founding of the blog), but in reality a few months. If you look just below the header at the list of pages, you’ll find a new page has been added – French-Inspired Living. Be sure to read this week’s post (click here) which shares how this new page came about – one that will hopefully be a rich resource and make easily accessible information for all of you who are inspired to incorporate a touch of French-living into your everyday life. (Speaking of French-Inspiration, the Haven in Paris vacation rental offer is still available through August 4th, so be sure to take advantage if you’re planning on traveling to Paris or London soon – click here to learn more.)
And because I’m always looking for scrumptious recipes that are as delicious as they are simple, I’ve discovered a dessert that will not disappoint and is sure to impress. Have a look at Simple & a Dream – Dark Chocolate Mousse.
So many other ideas (care to Rent the Runway? – discover my first-hand experience with the online designer rental company here) were shared on the blog this week. Do have a look . . .
