SAND BETWEEN MY TOES





There is a certain sadness that comes with knowing something you love is happening for the last time of  the year. Even if the warm weather and sunny days continue well into the winter in the South, yesterday may have been the last time I take a dip in the sea and have the sand squish between my toes.
I spent a lovely Sunday soaking up the sun and floating amidst the waves, with good friends, good food and great weather. The day quickly wound down as the tide rolled in and the wind picked up. So we moved onto a beach patio to enjoy beers and cheers this memorable summer goodbye. Till next year...

SNAPSHOTS OF THE WEEK



Is it just me or does October seem to be flying by? We're half way through already! 
This weekend I am spending some time doing mini home improvements, mainly in our bedroom and dressing room. Saturday night James and I are going to try and see the new movie, Get On Up. It looks awesome! Then Sunday we are taking advantage of the remaining summer heat and hitting the beach with friends. We will see if I will be brave enough or not to enter the sea, hopefully I am. This will probably be my last chance this year (sad face).
I hope you have some fun and exciting things planned as well, let me know. Bon Weekend!

In case you missed them, here are some sweets to treat yourself to this weekend:

HAPPY ONE YEAR


Happy one year to maple + macaron! Wow time really does fly by.
This little blog started one year ago as a creative space and a way for my family 
and friends to stay connected to me. I am so thankful for the adventure it has taken
me on, and how it keeps me thinking and always active. I am thrilled to keep going
and to continue posting unique and fun posts that hopefully inspire others to make and
see beauty in their life everyday. A big thank you to all of you who take the time to 
read maple + macaron. It means so much to have your love and support. 
Gros bisous!

A POOL PARTY, FRENCH STYLE


Let's flash back to the sweet Summer months, June to be exact, to two days before our wedding. We hosted a pool party, French style of course, for all of the guests arriving from near and far. We welcomed our guests with a baguette sandwich station, quiches, tartes, bière and rosé. The pool was open and the pétanque field ready. And let me tell you, the French and the Canadians know how to have a good time.

FALL OF RAIN

It is raining, raining, raining non stop in Cannes. I am usually not a fan of the downpour, but these past few days I have been loving it. It means I can put on cozy sweaters, wear my Hunter boots and splash around in puddles with the dogs. Or stay inside and re-watch old episodes of Gossip Girl (not ashamed to admit that!). It is a little sad to see Summer officially leave us, but I do love to see the season change and of course change up my wardrobe.
