Happy and Content in France


As I type this, I am sitting in a campsite on the outskirts of Le Mans, France. The hubs and I are on a two week road trip (in a small RV) that will take us around the South of France, Northern Spain, Switzerland and Belgium. While I am so excited thinking about all of the things I am going to see, at the moment, I am perfectly content with my glass of red wine, my guide books and the warm breeze rolling through. 

I don't think I will ever tire of traveling and seeing new parts of the world. It is one of the great loves of my life.

This is my 6th time visiting England and it continues to charm me. It is such a beautiful place that is steeped in tradition and culture and I don't see myself tiring of it any time soon. This past week we have been staying with Dan's Mum and Step-Dad at their beautiful old English farmhouse, complete with red brick, lush green ivy growing up the side of the house and brightly colored flowers in full bloom. 

Since arriving we have done a lot of relaxing, which we needed, but have also gone to see some of the sights around town. Here are a few of the places we have been.  

The back courtyard of my in-law's home. I love spending time out there.

Who doesn't love brick, ivy and a bright red door?
