This morning I feel as if I am having breakfast with a friend. A friend with great taste; eloquent, elegant, generous and very well organised!
Shannon Ables writes the blog The Simply Luxurious Life, because as she says she has “come to realize that luxury is always in our proximity if only we know where to look”
On her website she shares details of her everyday life in Oregon. Her love for France is evident, and I know that one day soon we’ll share coffee in my garden at home. This week she is running her annual French week on her blog, which includes giveaways, interviews, ideas for places to stay on your next trip to France and some great French fashion tips.
Shannon has written a bestselling book, and unusually has converted that book to an audio version!
There are many pleasures that we both enjoy, not the least of which are eating well; bringing fresh flowers into our home, and walking our dogs.
Last week I chatted with Shannon, and the podcast interview is broadcast today on her website. We talked about recipes, about tablescapes and about the importance of keeping our ideas wide open for the everyday beauty that surrounds each of us.
Thank you Shannon for inviting me onto your podcast again, it’s a privilege and a pleasure !
