Surprise! We're going to FRANCE!!! December 27th

Ever since I've been 12, I've had this obsession with Paris. I've dreamed of going there and seeing the Eiffel Tower and all the beauty that France has to offer. I took French in High School, studied Fashion in College and even decorated Ella's room with a Parisian flair. I love hearing about French culture and looking at pictures of the Eiffel tower. I'm all about France - My beloved France!
So when Hyrum and I got married I told him it was a dream of mine to travel to France. He told me that someday we would go there. In 13 years we've been working hard on getting his schooling done and having our babies. Now that the kids are 6 and 8 and Hyrum's got his Masters with a good job - it's time! We had been talking about doing a large trip, a second honeymoon, for about a year. I kept dropping hints that Paris would be fun to go to but we hadn't made any committments or plans. So on Christmas morning, much to my surprise, I opened my stocking to find French CD's, French vocabulary book and a traveling France itenerary book. I looked at Hyrum and he smiled and said "I think it's time to plan your trip!" I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS MAN! HERE WE GO!!!!
On December 27th we booked tickets to travel in May for 12 days! I still can't believe it! It seems surreal! We're going to Paris, Versailles, Caen (to see the Normandy beaches), Loire Valley, and then to Nice (and surrounding cities like Marseille, Monacco and Monte Carlo) to see the Mediterranean. It should be quite a trip! Thanks to my Mom, Hyrum's Parents and Andrea for watching the kids while we're gone. I really appreciate them!
Have I said that I love my husband! Thank you Hyrum - you make all my dreams come true!
