France Photo Recap

As many of you know, the hubby and I recently celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary in France.  As promised, here is a photographic recap of some of our trip details.  I took nearly 1,000 photos over the 2 weeks we were away (what can I say, I love me some pictures!!) that I certainly don't expect all of you to comb through, so I'm including the highlights here.  I hope you enjoy!

One of my favorite parts of the trip was...

Yes, that's a Nutella crepe (the first of many) and it was DELICIOUS!  What a way to say "Bonjour Paris"!  Equally tasty was this gelato...

and the famous hot chocolate at Cafe Angelina:

Y.U.M.M.Y!!!  Besides the heavenly desserts, pastries and breads, we enjoyed an abundant selection of wine (of course!):

and fresh roses everywhere we turned, like these beauties:

Speaking of gorgeous views, check these out:

We started in Paris, then took the high speed train to Aix-en-Provence before finishing the trip in Eze.  Aix and Eze were lovely smaller towns with French countryside charm.  We didn't have any set itineraries for either destination, but rather took each day as it came and explored whatever we came across.

In Paris, there was a lot we wanted to see, so we were up early every day in an attempt to accomplish as much as we could!  We visited a bunch of famous landmarks and museums:

Notre Dame
statue in the park
the famous Mona Lisa
Louvre Museum
Musée d'Orsay
Rodin Museum
Arc de Triomphe
The Opera
Sacre Cour
And of course...

All in all, it wasn't the most relaxing trip we've ever taken (thanks in large part to a couple unwelcome home-related events we had to face both before and during the trip - more info on those later), but it was soooooooo very nice to finally get some time away together.  France has been on "my list" for a while now, and I'm thankful to have gotten the chance to see it with my sweetheart.  Happy 3rd anniversary, hubby, and cheers to many more to come!!!

Well, that's all for now - thanks for coming with us down memory lane!
