Pictures paint a thousand words, for all my friends near and far, & for those who I haven’t met in real life but are mothers…enjoy the joy, the struggle and the happy ever after 🙂 I thought this weekend was a great time to share these favourite pics from our early days of being on the road, buying antiques with our daughter, it was her first ever buying trip to France aged just 4 years old! Happy Mother’s Day!!We started off with a few days in Paris, seeing the major museums, she & a friend loved the forecourt at the Louvre & the view from the Musee D’Orsay …quite the expert now but a few hours later..
she thought the Musée des Arts Décoratifs inside the Louvre was was a bit of a yawn…oh and the Musée Les Invalides the next day…Luckily she woke up to catch a spectacular view from the ferris wheel at the end of the Jardin des Tuileries & she was happy to pose on the steps of the Gare du Nord where the train would take us South
Our love affair with the Provence & the South of France began right here…in Arlesstaying on the square, she was mesmerized by the wonderful street life in the square at night..
Her first antique fair – she slept through the best & worst of it… (today aged 19 she would agree)
Her most memorable fall in a public square, happened in Montpellier…followed by the best chocolate mousse she had ever eaten.
at the end of a busy few weeks, we took sometime out in Cannes…and caught a train to Italy to find Tuscany but that’s another story!
Wishing mothers, grandmothers & great grand-mothers good memories & a bon weekend! ♥
