Chasing Breakfast

The idea of a Parisian breakfast sure is nice. Most of us are able to get our Parisian breakfast fix at home. I visited Mon Amie Morning Café in Hub City just days before traveling to Paris and anxiously await the opening of Crêpe du Jour in Downtown Greenville. I am a huge fan of breakfast–in fact, I could…

Live From Paris Series

The day is here–today I embark on my much awaited, Parisian spring holiday! To keep readers, friends and family up to date on my latest adventures, Diamonds & Baguettes will feature the Live From Paris series (although no live-streaming will actually take place–sorry).

I can drink it alone (water + powder) or mixed with a wide array of ingredients (my top two combos are peanut butter + banana and Nutella + almond milk). Today…

Square One

Today I am shopping for a Keurig machine (there you go, free advertising). I have the longest to-do list I never thought I would ever have and I slept in, losing about three to four hours of precious time. Fine living is a great thing. Relaxed mornings out on the porch with good coffee and…
