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.
Our French honeymoon was nearly a year in the making. We traveled to Europe almost eleven months after we were married. We started in Germany, even going to Berlin. The Wall had fallen just the year before, but we quickly made our way to visit friends in France.
You can see that I was already dreaming of France as I stood outside our friends' country house. Their family received the house during the reign of Napoleon.
We stopped in the nearby town of Bourges, which is famous for its candy, but we chose a baguette.
We were in France in early May and the fields of rape seed were in bloom. I don't think they smelled like anything.
Monday is our 24th anniversary. We aren't going to France to celebrate 24 years of marriage, but maybe 25. I can always dream.
