Provence - France
Ex-pat Elizabeth Bard thought she had the life of her dreams with a gorgeous French husband and a home in the heart of Paris, but a chance trip to Provence on the eve of motherhood proved the start of a brand new chapter. In her new memoir, Picnic in Provence, Bard details the highs and lows of life as a new mom, a nascent entrepreneur, and a American negotiating Provencal culture and cuisine.
