I’m taking y’all to France with me! I’m hot off a trip of a lifetime and can’t wait to take you on a walk through the French countryside with me. I hope you have a minute because I have a load of pictures to share! I am going to roll this trip out over multiple blog posts because you would bore if I plopped all the pictures out at once!
A few years ago I saw a blogger friend go on this trip and from that moment I was hopeful to go too. I started following Heather Bullard, she is the lovely lady behind The Academy, a photo styling workshop held each year in Dordogne, France. Honestly, I thought this trip would be years down the road, if ever. My kids are still somewhat little and traveling overseas without my husband didn’t seem high on the priority list.
Then I had lunch with a dear friend, Jennifer. She is an adventurer, world traveler live life big kind of girl. When I told her about The Academy her immediate response was, “we are doing that!” So I put us on the waitlist and as soon as registration opened I talked it over with my husband.
We traveled first to Amsterdam, I will share that adventure with you guys next week. Upon our arrival to the 13th century French Chateau we would call home for a week, we were surprised to find we were given “the cottage” as our personal quarters.
The slower pace and simplicity of the people and culture were almost hard for me to get used to. I know God was telling me to sit back and take a breather in the midst of chaos that was out life back home. I couldn’t get my computer to charge and my cell phone had horrible service. Both things I took as signs to just relax and enjoy the calm.Over the next few weeks I will show you pictures from the small towns we visited, the styling tips I learned, our trip to Amsterdam and beautiful French scenery. I hope you take a minute to relax and enjoy the calm with me!
