Our family went to Normandy. I'll be blogging more about the trip on my other blog later, but for now, here's photographic proof I was on a different continent.
Yes, that's me beaming with happiness in front of Mont St. Michel, which has been on my bucket list since I was 15. I'm 50 now. Woohoo!!!
A few days after this photo was taken, we received a text from my husband's mom wishing us a happy anniversary. We had been so absorbed in our amazing adventure that we forgot our 31st anniversary. Neither of us cared. We had more important things to occupy our attention.
Things like pain au chocolat and William the Conqueror's extremely cool castle at Falaise.
Today's card is in honor of our forgotten anniversary because 31 years is no small accomplishment.
This card was inspired by a handful of cards on Pinterest that had sprays of flowers topped with a banner. I love the softness of the leaves and flowers combined with the crispness of the banner and all that glorious white space.
And now I'm off to deal with a "mont" of laundry and to love on the dog, who seems to think that we might disappear again if she stops demanding to be petted.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
