stephmodo Now that we've been home a week--and are running out of things to wear--I should probably start thinking about laundry 😬. Until then, I will live in the past for a moment and think about how I wish we were back here in our little maisonnette. #beynac #france 2h

stephmodo Tonight I witnessed the prettiest sunset of my life! The sky was afire, lightening flashed in the distance and behind me was a full, double freaking rainbow. If only I could capture what I saw with my own eyes. #nofilter #seattle 13h

stephmodo Last year I planted a tiny patch of strawberries in the garden--those three berries are the very first fruits. I finally understand how gardening can become an addiction (a good one). It's so rewarding to grow your own food, albeit 3 little berries :) 4w
  •   tea_austen Isn't it true? Three berries or thirty, it's such a tiny thrill. 4w
  •   frolicblog Beautiful 4w
  •   birdiesbakeryslc What a thrill indeed! Wish I were with you to make jam as we did in summers past!! 4w
  •   kalanicutblog Totally agree. I feel the same way about the 1 lemon we harvested a few weeks ago. Most beautiful lemon ever. 4w

stephmodo After school antics with my kiddos. I am really appreciating the simple life here! Hanging at the park, getting ice cream and hitting up the patisserie sure beats spending 2+ hours a day schlepping from activity to activity. I am grateful for this brief respite from "real life". 4w
  •   lindsaysalazar Looks dreamy. Miss you guys but it looks like you're having a wonderful time. 4w
  •   lynnemillar Bliss!! And it is so hard to maintain a slow life!! 4w

stephmodo One thing I find fascinating is how nice the campgrounds are here. They often have pools like this, washer/dryers and even a restaurant. It's crazy! So, tonight we rented a space just so we could enjoy the pool (it hit 88 degrees). And even crazier, it cost less than the community pool at home in Seattle. Bam! 1mon
  •   jengronick We spent a summer camping through europe when i was 14. Best campgrounds ever. Best summer ever! 1mon
  •   stephmodo @jengronick what an amazing experience! How awesome your family could do that. 1mon
  •   lizbaucom Man. Looks amazing! The inconvenience of swimming here in pools, not a lake makes me sad. 1mon
  •   sallyjshim 1mon
  •   jengronick We were there for two and a half months - spent my fourteenth birthday in monte carlo outside the big casino watching the cars pull up and then dining on the waterfront. I only hope i can one day give that experience to my kids. 1mon
