The sweet taste of France

Friday, 08 June 2012

Four weeks ago my hubby Paul and I set off on a wonderful holiday adventure to Paris, Picardie and the Loire Valley in France. Along the way we ate lots of amazing pastries, macarons, tarts, baguettes and drank some amazing wine. I thought I’d share a little pictorial journey of our holiday, particularly the floral and cakey things we discovered, which really inspired me.
