The sunflower picnic
Archive July 2012
Today was one of those days that reminds me of why I moved to France. It was perfect in every single detail A few days ago, Kendall scheduled a garden day at our potager, Clos de la Cozanne. As usual, we talked about what we needed to do in the the potager, what seeds we needed to purchase, and most of all, what we were going to have for lunch. Today was special though. We arrived at Clos de la Cozanne with the usual checklist, but on the kitchen table was a picnic basket. In celebration of my upcoming birthday, the big 5-0, Kendall had arranged the "sunflower picnic". We jumped in the car to a pre-scouted location. As we turned the corner, I knew exactly what was up, the "sunflower picnic". We've talked about it for years regarding the big 5-0. It was magical, surrounded by the people I love and it was the sweetest thing I had ever seen. It was a very special day for me and I am so lucky to have the life I have. In short, always choose happiness. It will never let you down.
