Paris Window Candy

IMG_4043

Now less than two weeks from my return to Paris, I am in that awkward limbo period during which I lie awake at all hours of the night, making lists in my head. They look something like this: People I Need To See Before I Leave, Reservations To Be Made For Paris Restaurants, What I Want To Take To Paris With Me, What My Kids Need From Me, Who Is Visiting When?  I could go on, but I don’t want to put you to sleep over what keeps me awake. We will be gone for three months, with a brief August interlude to help our daughters get settled back into school. And to savor that hell that is August in Texas, of course.

Speaking of summer, I have been enjoying a French aperitif wine called Lillet Blanc. It is crisp and light and slightly orange- infused. I am liking it with a splash of soda and a twist of lime, but rumor has it that it’s good in a glass of ice all by itself. Last night I even got so bold as to order a Vesper, which is a martini with Lillet in place of vermouth. Try a bottle this summer if you are looking for something to shake up your cocktail repertoire.

And if you live in Texas, you will be happy to know that I bought some Fredericksburg peaches last weekend and they were the best I have had in ages! Think sugary juices running down your chin and forearms! Be on the lookout for them and buy them while they last.

Pour yourself a refreshing Lillet, pick out a fuzzy sweet peach, and enjoy these Paris windows.

Thanks for taking time to peek into my window! Stop by again soon.

I am going to bed now. I have lists to make.
