Hello, I’m Fiona, Fee to my friends.
I have been obsessed with the colour green since a young age. That’s where the name Emerald and Jade Loves comes from.
I trained and qualified as a lawyer a lifetime ago, before retraining as an events florist. Since then, I’ve discovered a more creative way of life.
I’m an eternal dreamer, and love exploring and trying out new creative things.
I love reading books, especially those that take place in dreamy landscapes and provide delicious descriptions of local food. I dream of writing my own books one day, and have started exploring this.
As well as exploring creativity, I love exploring. Whether it be via day trips or for longer periods of time, I love nothing more than being able to wander in a new place and soak it all up.
My family being explorers too, I was born in France but moved around a fair bit, before coming back to France in 2018, this time with my husband and two children. Barry runs his own business of creating magic in gardens via Le Jardin Contemporain. Siena and Hugo are now fully bilingual in English and French and drive us crazy daily whilst also making us incredibly proud and grateful for them.
We live in rural Western France, in between Angouleme and Poitiers, where we run a gîte (holiday let).
Do say hello and let me know about you.
