Let’s back up a bit.

 OK so lets be honest – we’re a bit  lot behind on posting here lately.  I guess the more you have to do – the less time you have to write about it.
Quick recap: Heather & Aaron & their girls were here for a bit over a month.  We travelled down south with them – one our favorite places ever.

On the way down we stopped in at a market in Nyons, an area known for its olives
and lavender
and wine


like kids in a candy store

nice part of the world if you ask me.

Our destination was Pézenas – a fantastic town with a very active artisan community, a great market on saturdays, wine festivals, lots of good food – and my aunt and uncle who always spoil us with wine, lots of good food, and pointers on the best markets.  

We all stayed down there for a week. The weather was great -and I really enjoyed taking some time off from writing my first year paper.  (which I turned in the draft of on Sunday night – thank you very much)

We went to the beach a few times, visited some wineries, drove around, strolled through the town -and just took it all in.
