Baby Boomer Bakes nominated for The Sunshine Award

What a treat I enjoyed today (calorie-free)! Stephane of My French Heaven was kind enough to nominate Baby Boomer Bakes for The Sunshine Award. This was so appreciated since I often live in the Sunshine State of the US (Florida) and his e-mail suggests he resides in the beautiful French village Saint Emilion, near Bordeaux. I had the pleasure of visiting Saint Emilion in August, 2012. Lovely people, mouth-watering food & beautiful area of France.

I hope you have a chance to check out My French Heaven. It’s one of my favorite blogs. Stephane writes beautifully, his photography is amazing and his original recipes are outstanding. Once you read his profile and take a look at his mouth-watering recipes (and photography) you’ll be hooked on following his blog… just like me over at Baby Boomer Bakes!

Let me share just a couple of photos from my recent time in St. Emilion…

Typical “foodie” photos! I want to remember all the great food!

Ah! Great memories! Now back to the reality that I’m not in France today, but in the Sunshine State accepting and working on The Sunshine Award.
