It is hard to believe a year ago I was on one of the most amazing trips. Today I can’t help looking back at our Provence trip.
My best friend Maryliz and I spent ten days in Provence with a small group of amazing women and we had the most amazing time. Today I am sharing all about this trip and sharing some sad but happy news too.
Season 3 Volume 24
Thanks for joining me for Sunday Morning Coffee. This is a place to share, learn, explain, dream, and have fun. Let’s get started!
A year ago, Maryliz and I traveled to Provence for an amazing vintage flea market shopping trip. It was a trip of a lifetime and we loved it so much!
I love that all of the things I bought in France have found a home in our Pasadena house and at the beach house. Here is one of the vintage chandeliers I bought in our beach house kitchen!
We took the trip with French Larkspur and Tracey is the most amazing host. Her trips are all small and so wonderful. The apartment we stayed at was incredible.

We even created the most beautiful table when we got home and featured it on my blog titled A French Dining Table Inspired by Our Trip to France.
My Latest Project
Looking back at our trip to Provence really makes me want to think about another trip to Europe. I have always wanted to go to Tuscany and a trip we had scheduled with a fabulous group of friends was canceled a few years ago.
We are heading to Alberta, Canada next month and will be enjoying a bike trip through Banff and Lake Louse. I cannot wait as I have been to this area a few times and the scenery and colors of the glacier lakes are breathtaking.
I should probably mention that the bikes are motorized … otherwise, I might not be able to survive the hills!

My Biggest Challenge This Week
My best friend Maryliz has worked with me for the last two and a half years and sadly (for me!) she is moving on to a really exciting opportunity. I am thrilled for her but sad for me.
I am going to miss seeing her every day, her enthusiasm, creativity, and inspiration.
The good news is that we are still best friends and we will see each other a lot. And we won’t have to be working all of the time!
So where is Maryliz going?
She has joined an amazing company called Shared Vision and I am so in love with what they do! If you are an Amazon or Walmart affiliate then you need Shared Vision as it has an easy creator tool that generates professional links on your website with a few simple clicks. There are so many additional features (such as a broken link checker) that make creating affiliate links a breeze.

Since today we are looking back at our trip last summer to Provence, I want to give a shout-out to Tracey from French Larkspur. Her vintage flea market tours are absolutely spectacular and we had the BEST time! If you are thinking about going to Provence, book with Tracey!
Being a West Coaster, I am so envious of Dogwood season. Dogwood was also my mother’s favorite flower. Everytime I see a bouquet of Dogwood, it makes me smile. Thank you Jackie @finding_lovely for this beautiful photo and the smile that it brought.
I have become a little bit obsessed with pottery and the artistic process of creating it. This vase from @reeseemery is such a beautiful example of creativity at its finest!
While we were in Provence last year, I discovered and fell in love with the Instagram account @provencallife. David shares a beautiful perspective of the region, from an American living in Provence.
In case you are headed to Paris this summer, be sure to check out @georgiannalane. She is the author of author 10 bestselling floral/travel books.
Wow! What a week it was! I shared my favorite faux flowers, how to add string lights to your yard, some amazing new salmon recipes, a DIY succulent wreath, the most amazing DIY vintage lampshade flower crown, and some great Father’s day gift ideas.
I love this blog post that Martha shared titled 10 Collectibles in Your Attic That You Didn’t Realize Were So Valuable. You might own some treasures!
I will be in both Pasadena and Ventura this week writing blog posts for the next few weeks. But this week I am sharing a fabulous Summer Salad, our Summer Decor in our Dining Room, and tips on how to Plant a Summer Garden. I am also excited to share How to Plan a Backyard Dinner Party (parts one and two) and the new Summer Decor in our Family Room.
