A Christening

Mirmande, 2013

A blissful Saturday! We are in Mirmande for a christening.

Let's just say this wasn't the old dunk the baby in the water and call it a day kind of affair. There was a ceremony at a beautiful old church in the village, a lunch overlooking the olive groves, and a dinner in summer whites at an old farm house, parts of which date from the 13th century.

As we were driving to the dinner through the French countryside, with opera blasting, it was like being in an espresso ad. No joke, this place is insane.

Axel has been blissed out too. Yesterday at lunch they had the most adorable children's table, complete with miniature wicker chairs and a fleet of babysitters. Axel sat there eating macaroni and tiny pieces of ham like a little prince. Last night he had a sleepover in our little inn with all the other French babies and couldn't have been happier.

And the party continues...we are off to brunch!
