On Monday, if all things go as planned, David and I will make a five hour drive to Lyon to sign a lease on our new apartment. We won't move until the middle of August, but between now and then we will go to a conference in Germany, and so next week will be our last full week living in the Loire Valley.
As part of our farewell tour, we're going to some of our favorite spots. Yesterday we went to the château and gardens at Villandry.
David and I enjoyed the shade of the grape leaves...
...while Selah (a friend from the States) and Chandler mimicked the silhouettes on Grecian urns.
We ended the morning with a picnic in a nearby park. It was a lovely day!
We also went to the nearby town of Amboise this week for some of our favorite gelato. They always make the cones look like flowers, which makes this a treat that is tasteful in every way!
I'm so thankful we have Selah here because she is giving us a wonderful excuse to visit all our favorite spots one more time before our move.
