Paris with kids, Bon Weekend!

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!  Paris Doorway, elements i love, travel, blogWe 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. the louvre, blog, childrenA rooftop terrace with a cafe is always a good distraction mid way through a gallery..

Our love affair with the Provence & the South of France (and her love of goats cheese) began right here…in ArlesArles, travel, provence, pool
