Happiness Is...............

"Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors we don't even remember leaving open."

Rose Wilder Lane

Four more days and I'm off to France with two girlfriends. It is the first trip there for each of us so what an adventure lies ahead!.I started planning and saving money in 2008 and it is finally here!

My stomach is doing somersaults with excitement. We are staying for 12 days in an apartment in the 7th arrondisement just 5 minutes from the Eiffel Tower.

We have day trips planned to Versailles, Giverny, Avignon, and Amsterdam. I'm so excited to see the Provence lavender fields in bloom and be surrounded by the fragrant blooms.

We will also be shopping the Paris flea markets and I am taking an extra suitcase to fill with treasures!I can't wait to share stories with you when I get back.

Bon Voyage!
