Guess what? Next French wine region and section of the WMFT… Cote de Rhone!
Bam! I’m talking singing, merry-go-rounds, truffles, jaw-drops-to-the-floor type views, beautiful wonderful people, and food and wine that’s worth the skinny jeans fitting tighter by week’s end. #totallyworthit #livenow #exercisetokeeptheskinnyjeanskindafittinginthemeantime #itsallpossible
As soon as we arrived in Nyons, we got to go to a legit French birthday party with tons of hors d’ourves (including full-on truffle spread, whoa!) and lovely people… the night was filled with music, fun, food, and trying to speak French. Fantastic.
This is what French lunch looks like. Except add a couple more bottles of wine and chill there on the terrace for 3 hours. F*ck yeah, France, thank you for your cultural differences.
Yeah, this was my office this week. Sure, sometimes the mobile entrepreneur thing puts youin a car doing a call on a rainy night, and other times it puts you in a freaking stunning second-story office all your own with a balcony and French doors overlooking the mountains, town, and countryside. #thisshitreallyhappens #itsallpossible
I ran everyday but Thanksgiving this week amidst so many olive trees. 🙂
Thanksgiving! A lovely meal with lovely people, and a chicken that looked like a mini-turkey. Perfect.
Thanksgiving card. Heck yeah. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I am absolutely and truly… grateful for you.
Yup, these are some beautiful wonderful people right here. #legit
Did I mention wine tasting? Gigondas… Chateauneuf du Pape… Lirac… ETC. I also learned the big glass actually makes a difference in tasting. And it’s way more fun too. #obvs
I can’t remember where this was, but it was cool. #canyoufindthesweetassWaldo?
I call this one, “Chateauneuf du Pape with wistful dude.”
Chateauneuf du Pape, yeeeaaaahhhh!! :))

This image just speaks for itself.
Whenever there is a merry-go-round to ride…. you ride. #metaphorforlife #YES #kidatheart #livenow #nevertooold #justhavefunsometimesyaknow?
As we learned in the Champagne region, always brush your horse down after riding. Thanks, Serge!
Truffle market! Literally on this street out the back of mini-vans and coolers is where the price for truffles in the world is set. #blackgold
Some truffles up close. We visited a truffle farm. This pic is from them cutting off the not-so-good parts getting them ready to sell.
More escargot. This time in parmesan. OMG YUM. Never knew I’d like this, but I def do. Thought snails would totally be Fear Factor style… totally not. If you’ve never had them, def give ’em a go next time you have the chance. #delish
A lovely meet-up with more lovely people. #Frenchcafeterrace #forcingpeepstotakeapic #ofcourse #howiroll #alwaysworthit
One of my favorite photos so far. From one of my runs. Just breathtaking. #Nyons
Then hit up the Ardeche Gorges to hang with the mountain goats.
Then of course had to take the obligatory #GoProselfie in the French Walmart, Auchan.
There she blows, team! Thank you as always for following, reading, and just being your f*cking awesome selves.
