Postcards From The Provence


all the poppies

:( this is the last batch of my scenic pictures.
I cant believe I was there a month ago, it feels like yesterday. Overall my parents and I took over 4,000 pictures and drove 2,000 miles. I savored every moment of it because who knows when I will ever go on a trip like that again. If any of you are going to these places Ive posted feel free to ask me questions - I will be more than happy to answer!

I'll be posting what I got there and food pictures later on! Au Revoir

Finally! Here are the pictures from my graduation dessert party. Although the food was delicious, the party didn't go according to plan. In Early May in the south, you would expect a warm, humid evening, oh but no the weather decided to be extremely windy and cold at my evening dessert buffet by the pool (not holding a grudge, I swear). Needless to say all the table arrangements, etc, didn't make it to the tables because they all blew over and broke :( All the food made it though, which i guess is all everyone ever cares about anyways lol! Here are some pictures of the sweets and treats:

cotton candy

the pool

Everyone went crazy for the fondue!

rum cakes with pink coconut

cream puffs

death by chocolate

It may have gone the OPPOSITE of what i had wanted, but you cant control nature lol! At least everyone had fun and loved the food, right?
