Throwback Thursday: Monaco, 2001

Thursday, July 16.

As you may know, my little sister Madeleine is currently spending six weeks in Paris as part of a study abroad program through her university. (You can find out more about this program on the JMU Office of International Programs website.)

In honor of her upcoming weekend trip to Nice and Monaco, I thought I'd do a quick Throwback Thursday post to our family's Spring 2001 trip to the South of France.

Check out that pose -- here's to hoping for a similar level of sass in 2015! 

Has Monaco changed in the last fourteen years? (I'm guessing yes.) Head over to Madeleine's blog -- M is for Madeleine -- to see her photos from the trip.

Throwback Thursday: Giverny, 2000

Thursday, July 9.

Would you believe it's been almost a year since I last visited Giverny? It was such a magical day ... one of my favorite memories of my summer in France!

The gardens themselves haven't changed too much. In fact, when I visited last summer, I took a photo of the same lavender lining the main walkway in the photo below! And although the flowers don't seem to have been quite as bright in April 2000 as they were last summer, the tulips sure are gorgeous.

Can you spot my pink raincoat?!
