My family and I have returned from our vacation to France and I have to say that besides the endless car related difficulties, the long periods of sitting in tight spaces during travel, the unexpected 4 day period of rain at our 6 day beachside rental; it was wonderful.
While we “unplugged” as a family and slowly transitioned into a more present frame of mind, we witnessed a beautiful wedding, baptized our daughter, ate the shrimps we caught in tide pools and spent priceless time with our loved ones abroad.
Vacations, I now realize, takes us out of our norm, regardless of what happens on those vacations; good or bad, with or without kids, good times and disappointments included. Vacations are effective. It’s peculiar, I didn’t really even know our family needed one until we took one. While away, our family reaffirmed ourselves as a unit and returning to our day to day, is easier somehow. The mental clock has been reset and things to come can be taken with a relaxed stride.
I took about a thousand photos; and I can’t possibly list them all in this post, so I will pluck out the interesting ones and post some tid bits in the near future. So, if you love France or want to learn more about this beautiful country…tune in!
