Celebrating 100 with a Giveaway!


Happy Weekend!! In honor of 100 followers it’s time to celebrate with a little giveaway to bring a taste of Burgundy to you! A region that is home to world-class vineyards, lush rolling fields dotted with happy cows who produce amazing cheese, castles galore, and beautiful tiny villages to explore, there is no end of things to see and do in Burgundy! I’m in love with my little town, Dijon, and I’m so happy to share my experiences with you. To share a little of the little of Burgundy with you, one lucky reader will receive a taste of Burgundy including: a mini pot of Edmond Fallot Dijon Mustard, a beautiful tin of violet Anise de Flavigny candies, and a delicious (and adorable!) owl shaped piece of Dijon’s traditional Mulot & Petit Jeans’s Pain d’Epice. YUM!

  1. Congratulations on reaching a century!

    If I had time in Burgundy, I think I’d like to spend it on a Kir Royale crawl in Dijon’s bars and cafés with lots of local cheeses to soak up all the booze!

    • Thanks! I’m always amazed by all the castles around here, they just pop up out of nowhere! Chateauneuf is especially lovely with the tiny town and sweeping views of the gorgeous countryside.

  2. Hello my dear! I read your blog posts whenever I see you mention them on Facebook. I am loving the beautiful photography! When I travel, my favorite thing to do is to people watch…so this is one of many things I would do in Burgundy if I make it there someday (fingers crossed).

  3. Just came across your blog by complete accident as I was surfing the net looking for contemporary french songs. Nicely presented and eye catching. What made me put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, is the photo of the Sil Canyons in Ourense as I am a British ex pat living in Ourense itself. Small world, but as we say in Liverpool, I wouldn’t like to paint it!
    Well Done

      • Oh yes, I remember trying the truffle mustard at Maille….there is a pretty decent selection of Fallot mustards here in Ann Arbor, and it is reasonably priced. Quite surprising, but I’ll take it!
