There is no better time than
Right Now
to start running!!!
Vicki Archer's new book, French Essence
has just arrived in the U.S.!!!

Vicki Archer was born in Australia and now lives in the South of France in Provence. Our blogging friend continues to inspire me daily with her words, her life & her photographs. I treasure her first book My French Life. Her newest book French Essence is finally here! The photography by Carla Coulson is So Beautiful! I know this book will be on all of our Christmas lists this year!

Congratulations Vicki on your accomplished Jewel!
