An Ordinary Day in Champtocé-sur-Loire

Mimi Herman

We wake each morning in our chateau. Of course, some days the sky isn't quite this blue, but when it's raining, we hear the gurgle of water through the gargoyles.

Of course, we're writing.

often in our grand salon,

but there's still time to explore the boulangeries,

and visit the vineyards,

where we're often mistaken for French supermodels,

and begged by the paparazzi to pose again,

and again,

and again,

before relaxing at home,

amid a bevy of cyclamen beauties.
