Bonjour mai

[Hello May]

So apparently, May started a week ago. I would love to say that I remember how beautiful the golden hour of the very fist day of the month; but the truth is I don’t.

What I know, though, is how amazing the days to come are going to be. A flight to France – the first in a long time, mornings at home and afternoons at the beach. Cooking for my family, and for friends. Drinking pastis on the small square of my favourite village – the one that holds my childhood memories and now my very best friend, Anna-Sarah. Milking goats on the smallest organic farm of the mountains. Hugging my sister, and parents.

Oh yes, the month of May is going to be a good one. Even though it will really start for me in a week, somewhere in between London and Nice. Up in the air.

And because, these upcoming seven days are going to go in a flash, you should know I have many things on the way. Ice-cream mochis, a dinner at Northroad and Ducasse, a cheesecake, some tiramisu pancakes, and too many other things.

What are your plans for this month?


  1. Le mois de mai, c’est le meilleur de tous !
    La promesse d’une été qui arrive… Et tu sais, j’ai goûté pour la première fois à un ice-cream mochi il y a 3 semaines. Forcément, j’ai adoré. J’ai hâte de voir comment tu prépares ça !

  2. I can remember so many years in Normandy drinking Pastis with the relatives. When someone mentions it, everyone knows it’s going to be a good time!

  3. I love Pastis….
    My plan is to move country…Leaving England for Madrid…sad and excited at the same time!

  4. Sounds live perfect May plans! It is summer where I am so that means mangoes, swimming, and the beach :) Enjoy your travels!

  5. Have a wonderful time with you family and friends. I wish I could hug my sister this month, but alas it will have to wait when I see her in the autumn. {she lives on the west coast, and I live in the middle of America}

    but in the month of may, working on the garden and my vegetable patch as well as getting the guest bedroom set up for guest that will be arriving very soon!

    Have fun in the garden. It’s such a wonderful way to welcome Spring, isn’t it?
