A trip? It’s true! I am heading off in a few weeks for a trip to Provence France for a week of flea market shopping. How exciting is that?
I am traveling with my best friend Maryliz and we are going to shop at the flea markets in Provence France until we drop. And have lattes every morning and wine and cheese every night. And so much fun discovering Provence!

Today I am pleased to share with you Sunday Morning Coffee. This is a place to share, learn, explain, dream, and have fun.
A Trip to Provence France
I have always wanted to go to Provence France. And of course, if I was going to go to Provence France then I absolutely was also going to shop at the flea markets.
But did that kind of trip sound fun to the rest of my family? Not so much.
My boys like golfing trips. Hehe.
So I am going to Provence! I am traveling with my best friend Maryliz and we are not only going to enjoy France but we are going to celebrate all of the work we have accomplished at My 100 Year Old Home this past year.
Doesn’t that sound like a good reason to go to Provence France?
We leave for France two weeks from today which seems crazy! Perhaps that is because I have been planning this for a very long time.
Tracey Leber from French Larkspur is coordinating the trip and you can learn about her French vintage shopping tours here. The trip sounds amazing and is limited to four people. This means we will have the chance to learn a lot about Provence. And shopping!
Some of the villages that Tracey will be taking us to are Bonnieux, Lourmarin, Lacoste, Gordes, and Ménerbes, to name a few! The area of Provence that we will be staying in and exploring is called the Luberon. Our week will be filled with flea marketing, exploring/sightseeing days with visits to some brocante shops, and even a favorite vineyard for a tasting and lunch.
I cannot wait.
Remember the heart surgery I had in November? It was a procedure called Ablation and it was a total success.
Until this week.
Yep. It’s back and it hasn’t been fun. But I am taking some medicine and everything is under control. We will give it a few months to see if I need another surgery or if the medicine will work instead. But I have to admit it was really disappointing. I was so sure this was behind me.
But it’s ok. I have my amazing family and friends who will help me smile and laugh through this. And it’s not that big of a deal. It’s more of an inconvenience.

Actually my favorite this week is a Project with a Lot of Rooms.
I spent the entire day at the beach house yesterday (with my best friend Maryliz) and we spent hours going through a gazillion projects. Yesterday was all about making changes to the rough electrical and plumbing, laying out furniture plans on the floors, and figuring out windows and doors.
I should probably admit this remodel is way more work than I ever expected. But it’s worth every minute, hour, day, and week of work because I think it is going to be a wonderful home for our family when it is complete
I will be sharing a blog post tomorrow about the progress of the remodel and cannot wait to share it with you.
