My Visit to Monet's Garden!

Yesterday I shared with you some highlight photos
of my recent trip to Paris!!!
Today It's Giverny.
We spent one beautiful day of our trip
traveling to and walking the grounds of
the home where Monet lived and painted in his
gorgeous gardens.  It was possibly my favorite
day of my journey--possibly.
Here are my photos:

Paris, A Dream Come True

Firstly, I have to say that I'm fully aware that my lovely blog
has been totally neglected.  I'm sorry.  I miss my blog. 
I miss sharing with you.  So now that summer's over 
and I'm back full-swing in my studio from college visits with
my now high-school senior son (OMG!) and my VERY
long awaited trip to Paris (which I'm about to share with you),
I'm proud to announce; I'm here!

The very first thing I have to share with you is the fact that
I'm now able to check something else off of my loooong
bucket list.  PARIS.  I've dreamed of going to Paris since
I myself was a senior in high school.  I even wrote
my college essay about walking along the Seine River with
a palette under one arm and a baguette under the other.  Ha.
Before the Summer ended, my husband, son, and I took
off to the city of lights and had an amazing trip.
Here are some of the highlights:

Notre Dame

and one of Notre Dame's gorgeous stained glass windows

Le Merais which was walking distance
from our hotel and filled with
narrow, cobblestone-lined streets

Le Louvre!

The Pompidou Center which is a modern museum and
and amazing structure

Delicious fondue

Giverny--L O V E
I'm going to share more photos
from this gorgeous day-trip to the
home and gardens of Claude Monet

The Seine


Moulin Rouge

Sacre Coeur

I heart Paris!

more tomorrow
