The Stones take Bordeaux!
My sweet little family recently hosted The Stones from The States!
Who are they? Well, they are my former work colleagues and friends from my Las Vegas days.
This power couple recently discovered the South of France, visiting several wine vineyards, little villages, the countryside, and eventually spending some time in my beautiful city of Bordeaux.
I would like to think that they truly experienced la vie française!
I also like to think that we added to their experience, it was truly a pleasure to spend time with them and also to catch up on
11 years of not seeing each other! Geez, has it really been that long?!
We were lucky enough to be able to show them a slice of daily life in our little gem of a city.
We walked around the city, visiting the majestic and magical places such as Place Peyberland, Le Grand Theatre,
La Grosse Cloche, Place du Parlement, Place St Pierre, and along the way, we stopped for a quick bite, some coffee, then walked over to a wine bar for deep conversation and to taste the fruit of Bordeaux's labors!
We ordered wine, relaxed and just enjoyed each other's company.
As I was speaking to Mrs. Stone about life or wine or something, I couldn't help to admire her beauty.
She was relaxed and comfortable and looked so peacefull, I just had to take a photo.
She embodied happiness and serenity in that moment, I was adament that it be documented.
She and her husband have studied oenology and the culinary arts, so it was a pleasure to hear their opinions on the subjects!
My opinion on the matter was and is limited to the following rule: It tastes good!
In the end, we had a good laugh, took in some beautiful sights, enjoyed each other's company and drank good wine!
La vie est belle!
I wish them oceans of happiness and love and hope to see them on this side of the world again... very very soon.
Thank you Stones for spending some quality time with us.
Bisous de Bordeaux!
PS. Who else wants to make the transatlantic flight for some fun, sun and wine in the South of France?
We are waiting for you!
Bonjour et Bienvenue!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
