It's getting down to the wire here as I prepare to host a food photography and styling workshop with Aran in Southwestern France. For the first time in awhile, I have butterflies in my stomach...which is a strangely enjoyable feeling to be honest! There is something therapeutic about being downright giddy as a middle-aged adult. I'm excited, nervous and grateful--all at the same time. I'm crossing my fingers for good weather, good lighting and safety and enjoyment for all.
One of our guests, Emily McCall, was kind enough to snap these beautiful images of our village and the surrounding area (the workshop will take place nearby). Oh, and if you didn't catch Emily's "real life home", then you must take a look-see (caveat: I approached her about featuring her home before knowing she'd just made a reservation at La Maisonnette. Wild. Is it a small world or what?!). An attorney by day, she also has a wildly creative side that makes it possible for her to be both an amazing photographer and amateur interior designer all at the same time. Lucky duck.
