the end of summer

{long gone lavender}

How do you spell 'exhausted'?

S A R A  L O U I S E

That's how.

It has been one big doozy of a summer. And I know I touched on the whole, summer has been long gone, thing on my last post, but for me, it literally ended like, last night at 9, when The Husband and I got home from picking up Fifty at camp (again.. the poor thing has been at camp a lot lately) and before that, Marseille airport to drop off Disco Gayle, and before that Montpellier, and before that Avignon (all in one weekend, can you believe it?!). But that's a story for another time.

So here's the deal, I've got loads to tell you, and pictures to show you, but I am a tired old girl so we're going to do this bits and pieces like. Plus, since The Husband and I are planning on being hermits for the next few months and not getting up to much, (minus a crazy November with a weekend in Avignon, a trip to Dublin, and Thanksgiving with the Conjugating Irregular Verbs crew), and I'm not going to have much to tell you, it's best if we stretch this whole thing out. You know. And by this 'whole thing' I mean some tales about traveling all around the south of France, homemade pizza parties, aioli, pétanque, a raclette, and toddler bar fights at Le Petit Bar. It's been a nutty month.
But for now, 

I'm going to take a nap.




  1. I'll be waiting with interest to hear about your exploits.

  2. good plan. i'll honor your taking of the nap by taking my own? deal? deal.

  3. Looking forward to reading all about it. Rest up! xo, A

  4. Enjoy some downtime - enjoy getting caught up with you when we are all hibernating & snuggling up with our laptops this winter! Big hugs!

  5. I'm with you Sara. I'm exhausted. I feel like I could sleep for a week. Maybe I can finagle an invitation to Aidan's at Thanksgiving and finally meet you!

  6. I want to hear about the toddler bar fights first:)

  7. Dear Sara,
    I feel in the same way!
    I'm waiting to hear all about it!
    Pizza party, I had one in Chicago last month, so funny!
    Bisou, Babi

  8. that's how i feel, i'm ready to hibernate!

  9. Girl, me and you both! Except I'm exhausted from this entire year.

    Hibernation. Genius idea.

  10. Wow, you are going to have a fabulous November, I hope you enjoy every minute of it.

  11. I am anxiously awaiting the toddler bar fight post. I know it will be amazing.

  12. Whew! I feel like a cozy nap just reading the list! Glad that Fifty is home from camp for awhile and I'll bet that he is too!


  13. So glad I found your blog....following a boyfriend to Provence and then marrying him?? Sounds like perfection to me. I've got my own version of perfection in Chicago, but I'm hoping one day to live in France for a bit, too :)

  14. I'm intrigued by fifty's doggie camp. Any pictures? A neighbor of ours used to have a dog that they I think only put up at a kennel whenever they went on vacation, and after they picked him up he always sported a fancy red bandana, and no way he was letting anyone take it off. Just wondering.

  15. I also heart the Côte d'Azur intensely. More so than Monaco. But Monaco is also wonderfully uber trendy. Luckily for me, being a London gal, I get to fly there in just over an hour :-) Yay to living on a small overpriced island
