Inside the Palace of Versailles.. Everything was so Grand and Beautiful.
So many Paintings... Sadly, I can't remember all their names.

I thought it would be fun to show some pictures of our Trip to Europe.
My daughters, Stacey and Lauren who were in High School at the time and I took a trip
of a lifetime. We went with the club from their High School. The Ef TOURS.. It was a 10 day trip to Rome, Italy, Florence, Italy, Paris, France and London, England. It was a wonderful
I thought since Paris is the City for Love!! I would show some pictures for the next few days
of Paris.. Their was a certain feel to this City. It is filled with Art, History, Culture.. I hope someday, Kevin and I can possibly see it together.. If not, I am grateful for the experience and
visiting such a wonderful place.. Now, I had just got my Nikon 50 camera... I was just a
beginner in the Photo taking.. Please bare with me... Ooh... La.. La...

I'm so jealous that you have been to Paris. It looks like you had a wonderful time. Is it as beautiful as they say? Our son Kevin served his mission in the Paris area and we wanted to pick him up when he finished. However, his mission finished right at Christmas time and he wanted to be home. Imagine that! No consideration for his poor parents! You have a beautiful blog Caleen.

You will get there again with Kevin and I will get there with Royce too. Hopefully sooner than later! But we will!!! It is gorgerous. I love all that GOLD. It's just all so lovely. And dripping with romance.
