Thomas and I fell in love with Provence two summers ago when we visited for the first time. It’s remained one of my favorite places I’ve ever traveled. The lavender fields, the hillside towns and villages, the rocky beaches, the charming farmhouses… As much as I love visiting a city, it’s the countryside where I feel the most at home and at ease with life. It always brings back memories from my childhood of growing up on my grandparent’s ranch, where all of the best memories were made. Fishing on the lake, picking berries, the fragrant scents from my grandma’s roses and the setting sun against the old oak trees and vineyard lined roads. Those feelings are some that I treasure the most and hope to pass down to my children some day. There’s a freeness, an ease, a sense of calm and peacefulness when being surrounded by nature. Thomas and I both share this love for the simplicity of the countryside. We can’t wait to return!
In honor of our upcoming trip, I put together a packing list- some of which I have and some of which I wish I had- all inspired by the French countryside. My suitcase is filled with light cottons and linens in an array of neutral shades, and of course, lots of blue and white. And if you’re searching for more French Blue, check out this post I did here.
