Yesterday, we went to Aix-en-Provence, known simply as Aix, is a graceful, lively city, is known for its thermal hot springs, art schools and universities. We went to a market that had clothing, shoes, fabrics, tablecloths, jewelry, & other items at a fraction of the cost that it is sold in the states.

Dave and I arrived yesterday, in the late afternoon in South France, at the home of our host Yann and
Corey's. They made us feel immediately at home. I wish you could see their beautiful home. It is
full of beautiful furnishings and decor items that Corey finds at the brochantes.
We already experienced picking up fresh bread daily for the meals....amazing.
And the French people are so kind. All I could say is Merci! When they were so helpful everywhere
we went. I will post more photos for all my friends that have ask me to share.

The time has finally arrived and we are making our final preparations for our trip to France. I'm sure some people are getting sick of me writing on Facebook and on my blog constantly talking about this trip. I know, millions of people have been to France, and to many other fabulous destinations.
I've dreamed my entire life of traveling the world. This is both our first trip to Europe. We are both like two little kids filled with excitement.
I think that in losing both of my parents in the past ten years has taught me so many things about life, and how truly precious, every single day on this earth we are given to appreciate it. Hope to be posting some great memories made in the next few days.
