Summer in Provence

At the risk of sounding overly-flowery, I wrote this as the beginning of my description for my newest etsy item:

If I could, I would spend my summer in Provence. Ocean breezes would waft across lavender fields to my outdoor countryside dining table where friends gather to spend the evening. Fine wine, good food, a fire, music, laughter late into the night...

Too much? I must confess, writing item descriptions is my LEAST favourite part of running an etsy shop. By far. Like, if all the tasks I have to do to keep freesparrow going were people competing in a marathon (the finish line being the worst tasks), Writingitemdescriptions would be that sinewy, glistening Kenyan-looking runner who is a full half mile ahead of the next fastest runner, with all the others a good five miles back. The loser (winner) would be Checkinghowmanypeoplehavemeasafavorite. I'm up to 199, baby!

(In case you're interested, you can see the new runner here.)
