Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.
Maybe we can all satisfy our yearnings for France, until we get there again.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about our bottles of wine that we bring home from France, but, of course, we bring home other special things too.
When Grace came home from France in December 2011, she brought several bars of soap that she bought in the market at Aix en Provence. The soaps were 1 euro each. I loved using soap from France. She brought a variety of scents and I felt so sad when they were all gone.
Tucker went to France in March with his classmates. I begged him to buy soaps in the market, but he refused. Instead, he bought himself a $129 watch from Les Galeries Lafayette.
Then, last month, as I was cleaning out the closet, I found a bar of soap that Grace had brought back.
I hopped in the shower to enjoy the latest soap, but quickly called my husband to come take a photo.
As you can see, the soap scent is peach, and I loved discovering a piece of France hiding in my closet.
