I almost forgot about these pictures!

Back in October, we had an Indian Summer with lots of beautiful and warm weather (20° C/ 68°F).
Leaves just started changing colors and we picked our first pears in the orchards.

On a Monday morning we decided to go to the Annevoie Castle and gardens. The gardens were created in 1758 by Charles-Alexis de Montpellier and are the result of French strictness and English imagination brought together.

We ended the day with a ‘croque monsieur’ and homemade apple pie made with vegetables and fruits from the garden. I also bought a couple pumpkins to decorate my front door.

Every time I visit a castle, I can’t help but play ‘Marie-Antoinette’ by Sofia Coppola in my head. Sadly, there wasn’t a LadurĂ©e nearby…


I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I can’t believe that it will be Christmas in less than two weeks!

Love,
Sara

I know, there are a lot of photos but I just couldn't make a selection... I hope you don't mind.
