“La Vie En Rose” was a song made popular by Edith Piaf in the 1940’s and literally translates to “life in pink”.  For me, the meaning translates to finding joy and happiness in life!  My fiancé, Jamie, and I moved to South Africa recently from Texas and find it so enjoyable to create our own versions of happiness while here – be it through cooking, or travel, or just meeting new and interesting people!  Every memory we make while abroad, we will share with you on this blog!  Thank you for stopping by and we hope you enjoy our experiences and feel inspired to create some memories of your own!  And remember to find those pleasures in life, large or small, and enjoy your life in pink!
