J'ai passé un très bon week-end

As far as weekends go, this past one was pretty great.

Saturday morning involved baking Christmas goodies.
chocolate crinkle cookies + lemon poppy-seed loaf
Saturday afternoon, we did a little last-minute Christmas-shopping for others,
 & bought new winter hats for ourselves.

Saturday evening, we had dinner with some new friends.
(Double yay!)

Sunday morning was all about sleeping in,
& making brunch at home.

Sunday afternoon meant driving up into the mountains above Annecy to gaze at the scenery (gorgeous!)
& take a walk in the snow (freezing!)
beautiful, non?

On the way home, we stopped in Annecy's old town.
the vielle ville is lovely any time, but the Christmas lights don't hurt
And took a wander around the Christmas Market.

See all those wooden cabins where the fairy lights are?
Imagine all sorts of little booths, selling jewellery, honey, hats, toys...
& of course vin chaud (mulled wine!)

So great.
I'll be sure to tell you more about the Marché de Noël this week in the lead-up to Christmas!


  1. I'm so jealous!! I wish I could click my heels and be there too. What a beautiful weekend you had. The view from the mountains looks like a postcard, breathtaking.

  2. Those chocolate crinkle cookies look very tasty!
