IF THEY HAD IT TO DO OVER France: Would have had family arrive for pictures earlier so they could all spend more time together THE DAY IN THREE WORDS France: Magical, enchanting, fun; Oregon: Fun, entertaining, nostalgia HONEYMOON Greece, Vienna, Èze, Dubrovnik, and Florence

Because of a local noise ordinance in Grasse, we decided to do a ‘silent disco’ with headphones, and it turned out so much more fun than we expected!
