Olive Oil

When I was a child, growing up in Scotland, olive oil wasn’t part of our household vocabulary. I can actually remember, the first time that I ever heard of it, was when my aunt and uncle had spent a year living in Italy, and brought back some ‘extra virgin olive oil’ to Scotland for my parents, I was 16 or 17 years old. I still remember their excitement to share their delicious discovery with us, and I can remember too, my very first taste, as they taught us the Mediterranean …

Favorite Date on Cap d’Antibes

At different seasons in our lives, Vincent and I have had our favorites dates. Back in the day when we were first married (circa 1999) and living in Glasgow, Scotland, our favorite Friday night date was taking a picnic to the cinema! We used to bring wine, glasses and all kinds of lovely treats that we would enjoy while we watched the movie! It was so much fun! I think the people sitting around us thought that we were crazy, or maybe they envied our carefree spirit, but it was …

Running with the BOB Stroller

In the 15 years that we’ve been together, Vincent and I have always been runners.  We both love running and wherever we are, whatever we’re doing, running together is something that’s always been a part of our relationship.  In fact, at this stage in our lives, running has become our barometer of how well we’re doing at taking some time out.  If we are managing to run together regularly, that’s become a good sign for us that we’re not overly busy and maxed out, but during seasons when weeks go …

Lemons, Oranges & Eating Produce in Season

Something else that is becoming my new-normal, is the glorious Mediterranean produce in the Villa des Parfums garden, which despite our minimal gardening enterprise, is apparently flourishing.  Lemons galore and oranges (yes – we have oranges) thrive under the Mediterranean sun and all winter long I freshly squeeze juice from our own homegrown citrus fruits!  As you can imagine, wandering out to our trees in pyjamas, choosing and squeezing oranges before school is a daily practice unthinkable for a Scot! The joy of eating fruit and veg ‘in season’ makes …

Mediterranean Climate

Having grown up and lived my whole life in Scotland until we moved to Southern France in 2006, grey-cold-rainy was my normal.  Surely because of this background, all year round here in Grasse, I constantly marvel (and thank God) for this incredible Mediterranean climate.  As you can imagine, it’s been a trial to learn to adjust to living in such a climate!  Here’s some examples: Sunshine in Winter.  Every single month of the year, just a handful of kilometers from Villa des Parfums, people are laying, sunbathing, in bikinis – …
