Dreaming of France -- 55 Days


Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.

In 55 days, I'll be in France again.
Can't wait!

Here I am in the French countryside in 1985 as an au pair.


In 1991, I dragged my husband along for the first time.


Bicycling around Provence and across the Pont du Gard. 


Eating ice cream in Aix en Provence.


And just a few years ago in Isle sur la Sorgue in the south of France. 
Do you see a pattern? I'm pretty much always smiling and happy. Well, it's vacation, what's not to like?
I'm looking forward to our vacation in France, in preparation for our move to France in the fall.
Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France and please visit the blogs of others who join in too.

Oups...as I read your comment about my latter post, I saw a big fault of syntax into my post: I rather had to write " Both of you..." instead of " Both of us..." . Sorry for my weak level of english. Don't hesitate to correct me to improve my syntax. Your tips will be very welcome Paulita!
