Have you ever seen something so beautiful that it makes your heart ache? A scene so exquisite that you wish time could stop, but you know it won’t, so you try to absorb everything around you to preserve the memory. We came across a few of those places during our time in France. After last week’s horror show, I thought we could all use some pretty to set us off on daydreams for the weekend. Enjoy.
