Last weekend I traveled to the Brittany region of France to join my fiancé's family. Sadly, we weren't there for the happiest of occasions. However it was nice to spend time with everyone and take it the beauty of the region.

Pierre and I took some herbs from his grandmother's beautiful garden. We now have Thyme, Rosemary and Parsley growing on our balcony.

I've been noticing the blue that you find in the sky in France isn't the same blue you see in the states. Once the cloud give away, the sky looks almost as if it were painted. I'll try to capture this is a photo soon!

We received our Bretagne right of passage, we got these lovely Brittany breakfast bowls as a gift from Pierre's parents & grandma.
