Promenade in the Park :)

July was an extremely raining month. It was nice to be out between rain showers. :)
We tend to go for walks in a different park, but hadn't yet gone to this particular park in a while. It's called the Parc Floral de la Beaujoire. Very beautiful! :)

The roses were gorgeous. Some of them were especially fragrant and there were prize-winning varieties as well. :)
The weather has been kinda weird this week. Sun, rain, clouds, storm, sun, clouds, sun, rain, etc.

Here are a few highlights from my anniversary dinner. We always celebrate by going to a fancy schmancy restaurant. :)
The photos were taken with my husband's smartphone and although the quality is pretty good, it definitely doesn't do the food justice.

The menu :)

After a thorough search on my hard drive, I was able to find the table settings from Christmas (at my MIL's) and Thanksgiving (with friends and very belated).

My MIL and I got the decorations and decorated the Christmas Eve dinner table together :)

I got some extra of the clear balls since I liked the idea so much and used them for my Thanksgiving table. Silver and fuschia were definitely a first for Thanksgiving. :)

Happpy Independence Day (USA) + Small Update :)

Happy 4th of July! :D

(This photo is actually from a July 14th (Bastille Day), but that's when I tend to get my fireworks "fix" living in France. :)

I thought I'd also take this time to update on a few things that are going on:

First, I'm having a sale over at Spicey Creations. You get 30% off your order with the coupon code SOLDESETE11. :)

Secondly, after an extended hiatus, I've re-opened my Etsy shop, I've only got a few items there, but I'll be adding things on slowly. There's also a discount code ETE11 there, too, to save 15%.

Third, and lastly, I've added my Heartsy referral link to the side bar. If you use it to sign up, we both get a $5 voucher to use on the site. Feel free to ask me any questions about it if you have them. :)

That's all for now. The weather has been amazing so I hope to take lots of photos to share. I did have a request to show some more table settings and I never posted the ones from Christmas or Thanksgiving so I'll try to get those posted this week. :)

Stuff I didn't have

Unfortunately, I was under the weather and didn't have any of this, but it looked soooo yummy

Actually, this little chocolate guy is still in one piece. :)

Dessert from my nice's christening/baptism. (You can see it's raining through the window. These photos were taken last weekend and sad to say, the weather has not improved. :/ )

My other half's dessert plate. The strawberries were fresh from the vine brought over by the strawberry farmer whose a friend of my SIL. :) They were delicious!
