Familiarity And Rediscovery in Provence

Contributor blog post by Vicki Archer:

Familiarity and rediscovery go together.

The familiar despite our best intentions can be taken for granted.
We never mean to neglect and most of the time we don’t even realise it is happening.
Taking something or someone for granted is a non-intentional dismissal.
Sometimes, not all the time but occasionally, I take Provence for granted.

I am an Australian writer who lives between London and Saint Rémy de Provence in southern France. I adore everything to do with life in France and especially the olive farm I call home.

Born and raised in Australia, my first overseas trip to Paris at the age of ten sparked a passion for travel and adventure that has never ceased. In the last twenty years I have traveled extensively throughout France and become enamored with the French way of life. My first book, MY FRENCH LIFE, was published in 2006 and FRENCH ESSENCE, the second, in 2009. This blog is for those, like me, who are mad for fashion, interiors and all things French.

One word that sums up Provence….heaven…Provence is about the senses. Indulging in them is the way to discover the beauty of Provence. Basking in the sunshine, wondering at the history, exploring the villages, shopping in the markets, relaxing with a glass of wine and dining in the brasseries.…Sometimes I feel as if life stands still in Provence.
