A picture paints a thousand words. I wanted to share some of my favourite pics from our early days of buying and being on the road – Mother’s Day is the prefect day for a little quiet reflection. Miss M’s first ever buying trip to France was when she was 4 years old! We started off with a few days in Paris, seeing the major museums. The forecourt at the Louvre is a great spot where kids can run amok and engage in this place called Paris. A rooftop terrace with a cafe is always a good distraction mid way through a gallery..
though she found the Musée des Arts Décoratifs inside the Louvre was was a bit of a yawn…oh and the Musée Les Invalides the follwing afternoon didn’t take her fancy.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 (and her love of goats cheese) began right here…in Arles
staying on the square, we had a window to the world of Arles overlooking the town square. The mesmerizing sound of chattering French voices drifted up and we fell asleep with scenes of street life in our head.
At her first antique fair; she slept through the beauty and the boring bits… but over the years Miss M has retained fond memories.
A spectacular fall in the public square of Montpellier was perhaps her worst memory…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! ♥
