Some of my own private times in France (it's so nice to be alone sometimes!)

 I took a walk for an hour every day, and saw some very pretty countryside.
 This was a fun walk to a graveyard.  Very romantic!
Some quick watercolors that I did.

Day 2 in the woods

 I read a ton of books on a kindle the whole time we were there, and of course had many cuddles with my little man.
 My husband is still stunningly gorgeous, even after all these years.
William in hotwheel heaven!

Le Bois Joli!

 William and Aurelien have so much fun when we go camping in the woods that his best friend owns in France.  I enjoy it too, I just really need a shower every day to feel ok.  So I struggle with it.  I tell myself I'm on a rustic art retreat in France!  That helps me to relax and just let it be...
 This is Aurelien's best friend, his girlfriend, and their 3 adorable kiddos.
William is such an awesome, adventurous little traveler.  He just radiates joy wherever he is!!!

 Blissed out mama!
Walks around Paris, and then off to our next destination!

Through my husband's eyes: His Heart

 This was pretty romantic.  So after I printed all my own photos from last summer in France, I found a ton of gorgeous photos on my husband's camera, including these ones.  So of course I had to print them and scrapbook them also!!!! LOLOL!!!  Made me feel VERY loved!
