A snowy week in France

We got back Friday night from spending a week at the cottage. We had gone to check up on the cottage to make sure there was no winter damage, no critters had taken up residence etc. and all was fine. And snowy :-). How we all love the snow in the countryside! Untouched, fields glistening all around us, looking so pristine ..... until our dogs start going bonkers in the snow. They love it. 

 It was very cold in the cottage when we first arrived, but once the heating was cranked up, a fire built and blankets distributed, it was so cosy. It was great catching up with friends, eating freshly prepared pizza at the tiny village bistrot/bar/shop/bakery, sitting by the fire after being out in the snow and just enjoying the peace and quiet.

We had some really beautiful sunsets and sunrises as well when we were not in the middle of horizontal snow storms or thick mist

A week of course was nowhere near long enough, but we had some important appointments to come back for, among them a masterclass in macaron making! But more about that in the next post :-).

Oh your photos are simply sooo beautiful all those snow covered hills and your garden and stone walls but, of course, inside is soo cosy and warm. Hope Poppy and Hector moved over for you on the couch to get near that fire! LOL!
I'm sure it won't be that long when you will return to the warmth of Spring!
Big hugs dear friend,
