Destination France...

France and French flags

France calls one of her sons home again... and so my husband, along with me and our two boys, will be heading across the Atlantic in a few days for a little visit. France is not only my husband's motherland but also home to his aging parents, affectionate childhood friends and fond faraway memories... each return and departure is always bittersweet.

We'll be doing a lot of driving on our trip. Main stops include Orléans, known for Jeanne d'Arc's triumphant victory lifting the British siege over the city; Gers, a region in Southwest France famed for its foie gras; and of course Paris. I'll be posting photos on Instagram if you'd like to follow along... à bientôt (see you soon)...


  1. Ah! I will certainly will be following along. I bet each image will be amazing. So happy for you and the family to be able to go! Enjoy! I will be living vicariously.

  2. This would be a lifetime dream come true for this girl♥ I look forward with anticipation to these lovely photos in the future.

  3. Have a lovely trip and look forward to more photos!

  4. Safe, speedy travels Catherine! Love this image. Being with a British expat, I can empathize with the situation your family and husband must face with each trip to Europe (Mr. L also left behind family members and friends, each trip is also bittersweet).

  5. super! this is a beautiful image. I can't wait to see more photos as you go along.
    safe travels. xo

  6. Have a safe trip, Catherine, enjoy your "tour de France" and I hope that we will meet in Paris!
