Vive Paris!

Paris is not just a place to visit.

It is a state of mind. It is a state of being.

To me, in fact, Paris is a Woman Of A Certain Age -- revered for its mature beauty, its seasoned wisdom, and its equal measure of femininity and feminism. And It never gets old.

So this is a blog uniquely designed for Women Of A Certain Age who want to explore through Paris and beyond THIS most rewarding chapter in our lives.

Because like Paris, at this age, we bring to the world the very best of ourselves!

How To Retire To Provence!


Join me for my Exclusive Interview with Gayle Smith Padgett

Author of Passion For Provence,



Gayle will relate with her witty candour and humour how moving to France was an unlikely choice for an American who studied Spanish and Latin American Studies, lived in Mexico and South America, and worked in Germany for half her career.

Yet it happened and now she and her husband Ralph have happily settled and retired into the charming town of Saint-Remy-de-Provence.
