Elodie was born in Paris in a small apartment in Mont Martre. Her mother was a "dancer" and her father was a "painter", let's just say there in not much young Elodie's eyes had not seen. On her sixteenth birthday she packed her few belongings into a small matchbox and stowed away on a train heading Southwest. She arrived in a small town surrounded by a loop in the river and found a job in the bank. Every afternoon at five, Leön from the Auberge du Pamplemousse would come in to bank his takings. Slowly they fell in love. They were married on a fine May afternoon and Elodies's dress is still the talk of the town. Elodie now runs the Auberge du Pamplemousse with Leön and they have six children and a very, very happy life. Her parents did attend the wedding but the Mairie has banned them from the provence until further notice.
