Hint of Autumn



We arrived just in time.

Yes, this was our Sault of last weekend. Chin tucked in and elegant from afar, sporting just a touch of red. I thought of you all while admiring her.


Wondering wide but not frantic to discover, we took the backroads and drove slowly.


And somehow, even in so short a time, I am as full from seeing as if I had just inhaled a feast. 


So in need of an autumnal nap to digest before the winter.
Sleepy brain, groggy heart but happy I am.
With a new crew of dreams clinking like gold coins in my pocket.

More soon...thank you so much for being here, for staying, I can't say that often enough...

  1. It looks so gorgeous perched on the hill. I am starting to fall a bit in love with Sault myself. It's a wonderful place to get away from it all and just be.

  10. It's impossibly beautiful - just picture postcard so. And all with that soft glow of autumn, to add her velvety cloak around such beauty. xx

  11. Sault's location high on a hill takes full advantage of its paranomic view. Amazing how our hearts and all of our senses expand when we behold this kind of beauty. Enjoy your autumnal break at this gorgeous corner of the Luberon.

  16. So pretty. It's like an autumn fantasy! We don't get these deep golden colors up here in Paris. Fall is pretty, for sure, but not nearly as magical as your autumn!

    Good thing I have access to such beauty through you. Merci ma belle!

    1. Eh, we don't have them here either in the Alpilles--not really. But it was worth the drive. Maybe you and Seb need to make a quick getaway to Vezelay? Hoping this weekend rolls out as smoothly as possible...

      Et c'est toi la belle!
