Amazing Provence Rustic French Country Doors!

The incredible rustically charming exterior inspiration found in these small villages of Provence (perched in the Gulf of St. Tropez) thoroughly soothes my weary soul while I still muddle through this yet to be named illness.*

I have weaved affirmations and healing thoughts into Provence Rustic French Country Doors as well. I created them to enhance the peaceful theme and to welcome healing…do PIN to spread the encouragement.

Rustic French Country Doors & Healing Thoughts

These beautiful photographs are courtesy of Emilie, a Parisian born lawyer, photographer and blogger at the lovely travel blog, The Flying Dutchwoman. It’s a wonderful site to discover if you have a chance to visit her there or  follow on IG.

In other news, I just read a wonderful discussion of Provence with travel author Marjorie Williams and founder of the culinary travel adventure company Goût et Voyage, Martine Bertin-Peterson. When asked by Williams what ONE thing she always brings on trips to Provence, I love that Bertin-Peterson simply bypasses the boundary of ONE and mentions THREE:

“There are 3 things I always bring to Provence – my appetite, my curiosity,  and my sense of humor.” -Martine Bertin-Peterson

I definitely think we would get along!

Merci, Emilie!

 This talented travel photographer captured richly colored doors, stone façades, jasmine, and bougainvillea climbing in Grimaud, Gassin, and the narrow streets of Ramatuelle. I’m so grateful to introduce work from The Flying Dutchwoman here as the summer days wind down and pre-autumn reminders are everywhere where I live.

Fall is Nearly Here

In fact, my in-laws are visiting, and on Labor Day I limped along with them at the apple orchard where a bluegrass ensemble jammed alongside crates off Zestar, Honeycrisp, and Ginger Golds. There were also plenty of preserved jams, salsa, pumpkins and even holiday decor–folks ’round here bite at the bit to usher in the season of fall, when temperatures grow mild, leaves let go, mums for sale appear at every conceivable retailer, Friday night lights illumine the fields, and weekend tailgating becomes a religious experience.

You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m tellin’ you why…all the gourds are coming to town.

But first a rendezvous.

To Provence and a bit more summer tranquilité.

      I can feel a sense of being held in prayer – how can I not be grateful and at peace if only in my spirit? Thank you.

    You will get well, Michele, with so many praying for you. Thank you for this little trip to France. With each photo I said, “I could live there!” Charm. Not quite Fall here in South with high temps and muggy atmosphere. (Hurricane on the way?) Summer flowers are still in full bloom around here. It’s funny to grocery shop in 92 degree heat and see all of the gourds, apples, mums and fall decor. Before we know it, Christmas decorations will be up! Can we just enjoy one season at a time? The closing of the local, summer farm stand always signals that Fall is coming. Sure wish our temps understood that! Take care. You are in my thoughts everyday.

      Your words always lift my soul – I will get well. Healing takes time. I hope you feel some relief from the heat soon. It has been chilly here…really! Normally, I would be irritated by all the Halloween and harvest items I see everywhere, but my brain is too foggy to care this time around. Truth be told, I am hoping to be able to eat delicious food at Thanksgiving since I’m drinking my calories for now. And I’m dreaming about holiday baking…ha! How is that for wishing this chapter away! 🙂
