...Find Bordeaux and Springtime Just a Subway Ride Away!
I'm getting to the point in the winter when my thoughts have turned to spring. I'm tired of heavy clothes and boots and gloves and my skin -- despite my best efforts -- is showing the signs of too much steam heat. I dream of being in the French countryside in the spring. Yes, I know it's not spring -- even in Bordeaux -- and if it was, a trip to France is not in the plans right now.
But fate stepped in and I found an invitation to an event at the newly opened Caudalie boutique in Greenwich Village, just a few subway stops away. The event was a delight, and I enjoyed a facial, delicious tea and cakes and the opportunity to try the wonderful Caudalie products. I had the pleasure a decade ago to visit the vineyard in Bordeaux and it still stands out as one of my favorite vacations. A high point of my visit today was meeting the founders of the brand, Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas, who could not have been nicer. Outside was cold rain and inside was lovely and cozy. I didn't get any photos, but I will be back and promise some pictures.
Whether it was my visit to the Caudalie boutique or I'm just feeling more energetic -- definitely the visit perked me up -- I did some walking in Greenwich Village after my appointment. In one of the grocery stores I found this floral display and felt I came upon springtime.
The roses were pretty, but the tulips caught my eye.
Barring snow -- and it looks like it will just rain tomorrow -- I'm hoping for another New York adventure. I will be taking pictures to share. Please stop by tomorrow, I'll be posting a giveaway.
Wishes for a cozy evening!
