Well, as my family (and many of my friends) know, I am always so thrilled to come "home" to Saumur. There are no words to describe how I feel each time I see that beautiful castle up on the hill. It reminds me of all those times when Mom, Natalie, Michelle and me would be on the long train ride from Paris and how happy we would be when we saw that familiar "symbol". We knew we were finally home and about to see our grandparents. Those were incredible times!! I guess I'll never lose that feeling so I was pretty nostalgic yesterday when we pulled into my hometown. I never thought I would be staying in a hotel at the foot of that beautiful castle!! Our little courtyard is looking right up to it and it's just amazing! We took a walk late last night and crossed the bridge only to turn around and have that beautiful walk back as we looked at the castle all lit up and its city right below it!
Nat and Mich, I know the memories comes flooding back when you read this. Wish you were here to share in this! By the way, Nat, why don't you have Kerri and Kacie type a sentence or two? I would love to read that. Mich, you know how much I love to hear from my precious Carolina and JA!!! Tell all of them that I miss them very much! I just sent you postcards a couple of days ago so be watching for those.
Tomorrow, we'll be exploring the castles of the Loire. I know my family will relate to that!
Au revoir for now and I'll be waiting for a response from you guys! Tell Mom I love her and better yet, show her how to follow this blog if she isn't already!! To all others, thanks for following and feel free to post!
