Exploring France!

So I made it back to the good ol' U.S.
I've been going through my thousands of images, pulling out the ones that I think are a good representation of my trip.
I never knew how diverse and beautiful the landscape of France was until this trip. They have mountains, coast, enchanting cities, rolling hills and lovely old villages.
I always thought Paris just got a lot of hype and was overrated...but I thoroughly enjoyed it and it's on the top of my favorite cities list for sure.
Thank you all for your prayers,
Jaclyn and I had a wonderful time and we were blessed to be able to go and serve.

You know those childhood dreams that you always carry around with you? Well one of mine was to drink coffee at a cafe in Paris at night. Due to some different circumstances it was looking like I wouldn't be able to this time, but I think God worked it out just for me and I got to check off a dream. Next....moped in Rome!:)

My seven hour sunset on the way back home. I'm convinced I will never get tired of sunsets.
 I can't wait to show you all the portraits from over there.
Ciao!

  3. Yay! Awesome, Evy. Thanks for sharing France with those of us who may never go there. BTW, where were your mountain pictures when we needed them for the fronts of Wisdome Booklets?
    Oh, and did one of the pics of you from our photoshoot in August have a satisfactory smile?
