From Nice to Provence – Day 3

I’m glad so many of your were able to see the deliciousness of the Double Decker this morning.  If only I could have shared a taste of it with you all…

It was seriously good though.  Definitely a breakfast I will be repeating in the future!

Since I have a business lunch today I figured it would be a perfect time to follow up with part 2 of my France trip recap!

After our time in Nice, Monaco and Monte Carlo, we made our way to Provence

Provence was like no place I’d ever seen.

It was so picturesque – such a quaint and beautiful area.

We spent the morning touring around town –

And here, my friends, is where I fell in love with red wine.

It was such a fabulous day.

Stay tuned to see what we did the next day in Provence (hint – it involves olive oil!)
