I'm going to EUROPE for the first time!
This July, Miss Barb and I are flying to Toulouse to meet Ellen, Cat, Anne Marie and Frances to stay for a week in the South of France in the small village of Boutenac in a beautiful villa overlooking hills and fields for an artists retreat. We'll be taking day trips to Provence to see the lavender and sunflower fields, and to Barcelona too! SPAIN! After a week, we're driving up to Paris to see the magical romantic city, staying overnight, then Miss Frances (an incredible young photographer, 20) and I are taking a train to her family's home outside of London! I'm so lucky to have a network of amazing people to connect with - she'll be showing me around London for a few days then I fly back home from there. A lovely two weeks eating bread, bread, and more bread and taking THOUSANDS of pictures. I'm so excited!
My mom & auntie pushed me to do this and helped with everything, too - a huge THANK YOU to the most supportive parents I could ask for.
Viva la France!
