Bringing It Back Home

by Kay Baumhefner

With Lasting Impressions of Moments That Mattered

And still do. After traveling throughout many different parts of France over the years, and really loving them all for different reasons, it was only a year ago when we first discovered what I call the “deep southwest” just north of the Pyrenees. Capturing our hearts at first sight, we immediately realized we had arrived in a less touristed region that still authentically embraces what we try to support in our lives at home and went to France for in the first place. La joie de vivre!

Moules heart.

So as all of us continue to even unconsciously write our own life stories, I’ll stop using more words here to let the pictures take over, and hopefully help inspire the realization of your own dreams.

Please come in and take a look around …
