Wednesday Gratitude - A Birthday Wish

Today, I am grateful for my best friend!
Tomorrow is our birthday and 56 is our lucky number!
So Maureen, I am thankful to share my birthday with you!

Three years ago, we went to Provence with our husbands. We had always talked about how much fun it would be to go. Well, we made it happen, and what an incredible trip it was! Here is a little stroll down memory lane:

How happy are we? Our first day in Nice, and we are still pinching ourselves!

Our favorite little French restaurant in Cannes.

Listening to the troubadour singing French songs.

In Avignon, our favorite city. We were so lucky to be able to stay at La Mirande, even though we had no reservations. There was no room at the inn, so apologetically they let us stay in their private apartments! We thought we had died and gone to heaven!

In Avignon at night in front of the Palais des Papes.

The French wine country. Mr. A was in heaven!

Wine tasting in a cave in Chateauneuf-du-Pape! The four of us had so much fun touring Provence in our little car. Really, how many couples do you know that you could spend ten days with traveling and still have a blast!

We shopped till we dropped - buying anything Provencal that would fit in our suitcase! Until the last day in Isle sur la Sorgue: a chandelier! It now hangs in Maureen's dining room, a reminder of a wonderful trip to France. I'm ready to go again!

So Maureen, thanks for the memories.


Love, Your "Evil Twin"
