The South of France style

Midsummer in Sweden and at the same time wonderful summer heat in M's parents summer house in South of France.
In a couple of days, my mother and Lissie are coming to enjoy the cosy warm evenings here, with home made french cuisine at the terrace or by the pool, blended with some nice bottles of wine from the region.
It's as relaxing as can be. The mind sort of slows down here, needs become less and gratitude for everyting is very present.
That's why it's so important from time to time to escape from the everyday life, see something new and explore what happens to the human mind and brain at that time. The less we have, the less we need. It feels like that in right now anyhow. I have everything I need. My family, the perfect weather, good food and excellent red alcoholic beverage. A pool for refreshing myself and Alexis, vineyards that never seem to end in every direction of the house and small, cosy villages in pastel colours with typical french behaviour like buying baguette three times per day and shopping fresh vegetables handpicked from the neigbours backyard. Santé!
