The view from our rooftop... we are definitely in vacation mode and between having worked crazy hours (Jesse) for the past months, my being so sick I had to be hospitalized last week and jetlag, we've been spending a lot of time just laying on the roof and soaking in the sun (that comes with no nasty humidity) and this view. We apparently have needed the rest!

The most beautiful yogurt pots ever... we've been reusing them as our coffee cups since this place is very much a bachelor pad when it comes to kitchens...

This is a new (since we lived here) Australian coffee shop right across the street from our laundry mat... it's (as far as I know) the only third wave coffee shop in Aix and exactly what we longed for the entire time we lived here. But don't feel too bad, Chelley, Jesse said the coffee was still pretty bad. Poor Aix just can't seem to get it right. We can't wait to get to Italy, as far as the coffee and my being able to eat go!!

So many restaurants and not a bite that I could eat sadly... we did find one cafe that had a salad that worked just fine and ate there twice. Other than that we bought groceries from  the market, Monoprix and a nice little bio (organic) store that had some delicious sheep yogurt!

I'm so happy about your new job! And the building is beautiful... it will make you happy to walk into work every morning. When do you start? 

Much love and stay tuned for Sardinia pictures!
