The gorgeous photos are what captured my attention about a month ago. I began to read her blog and found out that Gabby and Ben Blair (she delightfully refers to her husband with his first and last name) moved their little family of 8 to Normandy France on February 1st for a year! I was enthralled. Sometimes getting my little family of 5 ready and together to go to the movies is a monumental and exhausting task.
The Blair family has children ranging from middle school to diapers. They packed them all up and moved across the big pond to an incredibly gorgeous French home that is called La Cressonniere. The house actually has a NAME, not an address. How COOL is that? Gabby has me on the edge of my seat waiting for each photo installment of the tour of La Cressonniere. Each room is almost more beautiful and charming than the next! The house was built in 2 seperate segments, one in the 17th century and the other in the 18th century. I'm in awe just typing that!

Everything about Gabby's blog is engaging. You feel like she's a sophisticated, very cool friend that is down to earth and elegant at the very same time. The type of friend that has fabulous adventures and it's exciting just to know her but at the same time she's REAL.
If you don't already read Design Mom, check it out, you won't be sorry! Gabby also contributes to several other sites including Babble and she is the founder of the social media community called Kirtsy.
