Lune de Miel

In just over a month, the newlyweds will celebrate their one year anniversary. Such a simple and sweet anniversary year…one. Our very first. 
We both love to travel and decided long before we were married that we didn’t need extravagant 5 star hotels or snooty restaurants, all we needed in this journey was each other. The fun in experiencing new places was experiencing it with each other and sharing in the newness and adventure of it. When you look at life that way, you can have just as much fun strolling your local farmers market as the Great Pyramids of Egypt. 
That makes planning a trip easy. You could spin the globe…pick a spot…and we’d be ready to go. So for our first year, our one, we thumbed through a dozen books, browsed a thousand sites, and finally booked    our honeyversary!
Pack your bags and bring your best scarf…we’re going to France kiddos! 
A couple of days in the City of Lights and the rest of the trip exploring beautiful Provence. So much to see and do, our heads are bursting with ideas.
…a trip down the river Seine under the twinkling night lights of the city.
…a warm, crusty baguette enjoyed in a corner cafe overlooking the bustling street.
…an early morning visit to a vibrant open-air market for fresh bread and cheeses for an afternoon picnic.
…a step below the streets for a look at the eerie Parisian catacombs.
…a blanket on a hillside overlooking Van Gogh’s starry night.
…a walk to discover ancient Roman ruins and adorable hill-capping villages.

Oh…and what would France be without those funny mustaches! 

We are still busy ironing out the details of our Lune de Miel (That’s honeymoon in French, and yes, I realize it is our anniversary, but something about calling it a honeymoon is so much more fun.) If you have any tips or know of any must-see places please let us know. Au revoir!

    Joyeux anniversaire! My absolute favorite view in France is from the steps of Sacre Coeur in Montmartre. Grab a crepe from one of the many delish creperies, a bottle of sparkling water, and of course a pain au chocolat for dessert and enjoy a sunset dinner on the steps. It's amazing!

    I'm so excited for y'all! If you have time go to Monet's home/garden.(I was there in '98 so I'm assuming it's still open to the public.) If I remember correctly it was about an hour or 2 outside Paris but well worth it. It's like being inside one of his paintings. so beautiful! Have a wonderful time! I am looking forward to pictures & posts!
