We took a quick trip to Normandy with our house guests this weekend. My sister offered to take my kids so we could see more (Thanks Gabby!) Their house in Normandy is the most charming place and their little blue car is unbelievably adorable. I love getting away from Paris and going to their home, it’s like heaven. After we dropped the kids off we went to Mont St. Michel, which is a giant abbey on top of an almost freestanding island. We stayed the night there which is pretty much a ghost town after dark. It was so cool to be there by ourselves and explore it. We even got up early in our pajamas to watch the sunrise. After that we went to see some of the WWII beaches and memorials. It was so sad and sobering. War is so awful. We stayed the last night at my sister’s house and got to hang out with my wonderful nieces and nephews before heading back to Paris. IT was fun to getaway with out kids even if it was for just a day or two. Have you ever been to Normandy?
