Bonjour mon amis! I hope you had a lovely weekend! There is something I love about Monday’s ~ it’s the beginning of a new week, new projects are underway, and being refreshed from the weekend. This weekend, I did some shopping, last minute school shopping for the kids, new bedding for our bedroom, and a few other things. The weather was rainy and humid so we didn’t make our midnight bike riding event… maybe next year.
On my “to do” list is to visit many of the historic châteaux’s of France. I’ve compiled a list of my top 5.
Châteaux de Fontainebleau
From King Francois I and Louis XIV to Napoleon Bonaparte, Château de Fontainebleau was one of the largest and favorite residences of the French sovereigns. King Francois I hired the best French and Italian artists to embellish every inch of the palace interiors with gilded woodwork and marvelous frescoes and paintings. Spend the weekend in this charming town for a perefect for a weekend trip.

Wishing you a beautiful week ahead!
