Travel Tuesday . Champagne Region . September 2013

It has been nearly 2 years since our last trip to France so I figured I would catch up on blogging my vacation photos while also reinstating my Travel Tuesday posts. My hubby and I made a return trip to France for a couple of weeks in the fall of 2013, but this time with one of our good friends! Our intention was to pick grapes in the Champagne region during harvest season, but the weather did not cooperate that year and harvest season came later than normal so we missed it by a hair. No matter, we still had a fantastic time! Some of you may have watched my France vlog but I also wanted to post some of my favourite photos from our trip. I'll be sharing photos from all our cameras so I will note my friend's photos with an F, my hubby's photos with an H, and my photos with an M. This post features photos from our first three days in France. This was my second time in the Champagne region and I loved it just as much as first time... I am crossing my fingers and toes that I will find myself there again in the near future.
