We had the most amazing time floating over the Burgundy countryside with @beaune_montgolfiere !!! 🎈 Vineyards for as far as the eye could see. It was such a gentle float, like we were just hanging in the air. 💕 Our pilot Bruno was awesome!!! He took us up high over treetops and mountains and then down low just above the vines & fields & treetops. ✨ Couldn’t believe how hot it was in the basket with the burner just above us! So fun watching the whole process from unloading or the basket & balled up balloon to putting it back away in a random field we landed in. 🍇 We ended the flight with a glass of champagne made by Bruno’s friend who is a champagne maker. He made this champagne just for the hot air balloon lovers!! A night to remember forever. 🥂
I never loved geraniums until....these past two weeks! ♥️ France has me falling head over heels for ALL the geraniums! Now I want window baskets in every window! I want lots of them everywhere! So in love with all the flowers here and how much time people take to make them looks beautiful & effortless. 🇫🇷
Stayed in a castle last night!!! Like a real castle! 🏰 The owners family bought it in the 1600’s and it was built in the 1500’s. Can you even begin to imagine the history these walls and floors have seen & heard? ✨ There’s so much to look at it’s hard to take it all in. And yes I did look for the Scooby Doo eyes in the paintings. 🤣
I can’t lie...I love coffee!! ☕️ I love how it’s a ritual to start my day. I love the taste (with sugar & cream preferably). I love the smell. I love the warmth of the mug in my ya d. 💕 Since we’ve been in France I’ve had the best coffee of my life! Café crème s'il vous plaît. 🇫🇷 I’ve even discovered the love for espresso. & the fine art of sipping at a cafe & savoring the morning & each drop. 💯 Let’s not forget sipping a cup after every meal! With dessert. I’m enjoying the wine with Mike but the coffee has my full attention.
We’ve been gone a full week now!! Enjoying every single second of this 2nd honeymoon. 💕 Today was Fontainebleau & Chateau Landon. We’ve started staying in Airbnb’s now as we drive through the French country side. 🇫🇷 Tonight’s stop in Chateau Landon is epic. We’re in a house perched on top of the walls (ramparts) is this beautiful medieval city. Our windows open up to gorgeous views & I’m trying to hard to savor all the moments. 🍷 We ended the day with dinner outside on the terrace. We picked up food at a market & drove like crazy people trying to find a boulangerie that was still open and still had baguettes!!!
