Homeward Bound!

Bonjour! 

After the most amazing anniversary trip abroad we are finally making our way home today! Sorry I'm posting late, we're currently in Atlanta. Even though we are sad to be leaving Europe, we are so excited to get home to our little Ruby, wear some clean clothes, sleep, and take cough medicine. I am also oddly excited to eat some chicken and veggies since I packed on about 8 pounds of carbs and pastries over here. No regrets, but that should make for a fun first week back at the gym!

I can't wait to share more photos but until then, here is a sneak peek of Paris!


For fun, here is our trip, by numbers, and in no particular order except for the last one. That was definitely my least favorite... 

12 = Days of travel
3 = Train rides
5 = Flights
8 = Cities
7+ = Churches visited
26+ = Monuments/ Historical sites visited 
24 = Macarons eaten
9 = Museums visited 
8+ = Bottles of wine and champagne consumed 
2 = Dry coughs/colds battled for the entire trip
8,846,383 = Stairs climbed (At least that is what it feels like)
12 = Cones of Gelato consumed 
2 = Wineries visited 
2 = Times I got shit on by effing pigeons (Seriously. At least it wasn't in my hair!)

Tonight our plans include spending time with my parents who vacationed at our house while we were gone and took care of Ruby! 

I hope you have all had a great two weeks... I'm working on going through all of your comments and can't wait to get back to blogging!
