My son and I are leaving our small town in southeastern United States to live for a year in a small town in southeastern France. It couldn't possibly be THAT different, right?

Handmade lavender soap is a little luxury that I allow myself in the States and one that I can more easily afford in the south of France since I am very close to the source here.  The lovely lavender fields that we see on calendars are typical of this region.  I bought this soap at the Crest market last Saturday and had a wonderful conversation with the woman who made it.  When I told her that I would love to live in France one day, she offered me her 70+-year-old husband's hand in marriage.
