My stay in Paris last month was phenomenal ! Of course it would be I went on honeymoon with my love to the City of amour . We visited all the major monuments and museums and sampled scrumptious foods and gained the required 5 lbs or more. We actually used Paris as a lovely stepping stone to get to Normandy which have been a place my love dreamed of visiting for a long time. This place, Normandy was definantey the highlight of our trip ,the significance of this place humbled us in reality so much more than the history we had heard about it. The beaches of Normandy wispered the stories of decades ago which entitled all of us to the freedoms we enjoy today. I will share in pictures some of the moments in time that grabbed my sole and created a salve to cover the hurt ,pain and misunderstandings that are sometimes experienced in these current times.
The American Cemetary offered a chance to salute and give deep gratitude for the great service and life offering bestowed and sacrificed for us all by these great men and women . Selfless as they marched into another Country to liberate and to protect knowing their lives would be the price required . I tell you I don’t know that I had any ancestors buried here but my heart was heavy and my tears were glistening for mother’s and families who lost their loved one here. If there is a chance to visit this place ,please don’t hesitate ,you will have entered sacred ground on earth. I will share some of my favorite pics of my time in Paris and Normandy.
