So we can dine outside in a tent…

I started writing this blog as a form of stress-relief.  I can’t believe it’s already been 1 year!  I would like to give a big THANK YOU to all of my readers! I really appreciate all of the comments you all leave me! I have long followed many blogs but had been internet-shy – hardly leaving a comment anywhere.  So, in honor of my blogivesary, stop lurking today and please leave a comment! Otherwise, you may continue to lurk… I know you’re there!

I have always wanted to throw a Marie Antoinette themed party but have never been able to!  So I had a little fun today and pretended I were throwing one!  Maybe for my big 3-0 birthday next year?

For my blog’s present, I would choose… an official Versailles candle! Yes, you can buy a candle that smells like *the* l’orangerie!  Here’s the link!  How nice would it be to blog and smell of orange blossoms? Quite nice, I daresay.

    Beautiful posting. I went to Versailles last fall. The photos provide the essence needed to feel you were there. I had my first macarons there. Thank you for this posting.
