Take one Canadian girl in les Alpes.
Add the ups & downs of living in France.
Cover with melted cheese...
Et voilà !

Ahhh, Annecy!

This afternoon I had an appointment in Annecy's vielle ville.
It had been a little while since the last time I was in the old town.

You see, Annecy is crawling with tourists in the summer.
It's insane, 
like a combination of Disneyland & Times Square.

I don't usually mind crowds,
but I have to admit that there are so many people here 
in July & August
that it's enough to make anyone annoyed.

Now that school is back in session, there are a lot less tourists
taking photos, lining up for ice-cream & strolling along the canals.

I found my way to the office I needed to be at,
which was up a few flights of very old, very pretty spiral staircase
in this charming little tower.

I was reminded how lovely this place I live really is.

Church steeples
& bicycles
& streetlamps
& old buildings
no tourists in my photo?

Ahhh, Annecy!
Je t'adore!!


So, happy Friday & bon week-end to you!

I'll be back next week with Les Scènes du Week-end,
which may or may not involve a birthday cake...


  1. Wish I were in Annecy right now to eat birthday cake with you!

    Happiest of birthdays to you, my friend.
    I'll call you later.

    Love you! xoxo

  2. A Happy Birthday from Manchester, England!

  3. Firstly, a huge Happy Birthday! I hope you have a spectacular day full of fun!

    Secondly, our coastal towns are just the same around here in the summer and I refuse to go to them. My sister-in-law threatened to make a t-shirt saying 'I am a local, I take priority' one year it was so bad!!


  4. Happy Birthday sweet Em!!! I just read the sweet birthday wishes post that Erin wrote for you :) I hope you have the most amazing day! I envy where you live and desperately wish I could be one of those tourists lining up for ice cream :)
