Belle France/ Beautiful France

If you saw my last post or if  you follow me on Instagram, you will know that Bill and I have been on a magical trip to France. 

I have a confession to make. I've always thought that the allure of France may be a tad overblown. 
I mean, you can't enter a Michael's or Target without seeing the Eiffel tower on some sort of trinket.

 How could one place be so magical, romantic, gorgeous, quaint, precious, and beautiful? 

I have no idea but France is all of those things and much, much more.  

There is rich history at every turn.

There were sites so beautiful that I literally wanted to cry.

There were times when I couldn't believe I was seeing what I was seeing.

There was design, 


unbelievable art,

iconic cuisine,

breathtaking gardens,

and architecture.

There were times when we gasped at the beauty.

I am completely captivated.

France, beautiful France.
I'll be back with more.
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Katie,
    Ah, yes, another person falls under the spell. I look forward to seeing more photos and tales from your trip to France. One year I want to go at Christmas time to see the markets and Parisian stores.


  2. Your photos are gorgeous. I visited Paris when I was in high school. It's been too long!

  3. You went to so many of my favorites -- Cluny and d'Orsay and Giverny and La Ste. Chapelle and more I see here! I felt the same before I went the first time. A friend lived there and I thought, "Well, that's the time to go, when you have a place to stay" and then I had to go back because you can't exhaust it in a couple of weeks. It's just too wonderful. I look forward to every single photo -- the ones you shared here are gorgeous!

  4. I'm jealous!! That is all. I can imagine wanting to cry seeing those things in person.

  5. isn't it wonderful to see the sparking on the hour at the eiffel tower? that's when it hit me, you.are.in.paris lol. glad you ventured to giverny as well.
