The Little Things

In Just Good Food, Travel on June 18, 2010 at 3:37 pm

Don’t you just love it when you check into a hotel and there is a little gift for you in your room? Nothing elaborate, just a simple something to say “welcome”. A chilled bottle of Perrier, a basket of apples, freshly cut flowers, a chocolate on your pillow. I believe that small gestures like this can turn an ordinary experience into an extraordinary one. Here are some of “the little things” that stood out during our trip.

Fresh Cherries at La Mirande in Avignon.

Olives with herbs at Cafe de Paris in Monaco.

An assortment of French macaroons at Villa Gallici in Aix. These were heaven.

Rasberry tart served with tea at Chateau de la Messardiere in St. Tropez.

We’re all  busy with work, family, obligations, commitments. It’s easy to get lost in it all. This weekend, I hope you’ll sit back, relax (even for 10 minutes)  and eat or drink something that makes you happy! I hope you enjoyed reading about our trip. Next week I’ll be back in the kitchen and blogging about baking and cooking. As a matter of fact, I just made some sick brownies that I can’t wait to tell you about. Have a great weekend everyone!
