Kicking off the weekend with a stomach bug/food poisoning is never a fun time and unfortunately, friends, that’s my life right now. I managed to get in and out of the dentist yesterday before I started feeling really bad but last night was not fun. I really have no clue if it’s a stomach bug or food poisoning since symptoms are similar, but I am feeling better today and just taking it easy in front of Netflix. Speaking of which, I watched the Aussie series Secrets & Lies and am going to check out Bloodline or The Fall. Have you seen either? Have any recommendations for me?

Anyway, let’s get on with a few pics from life lately!

Our weekend in Brittany

Hi there! Coming to you from Brittany! Tom, Dagny and I are in the Morbihan region of Brittany this weekend for a little R&R (his birthday present to me) and despite the rainy weather, we’re enjoying ourselves. The house we rented has a fireplace, a nice little yard and a whole lot of charm. It’s also really central to all kinds of fun hikes, markets and other tourist attractions. Something about Brittany during the off-season makes me happy. I’ve always been a fan of the beach in the winter.

So here’s a look at our weekend!

French Christmas markets and Saumur food and wine show

French Christmas markets and anything to help get in the mood for the holiday season rank high on my to-do list this time of year, so we wasted no time this weekend and headed to the Château de Brézé for their annual marché de Noël. But that’s not all our Sunday had in store. Just after leaving, we saw a sign for the nearby food and wine show in Saumur and figured we’d check it out… and that turned out to be a major hit!
