Illustration Friday- Cocoon

The best trip in the world happened a year ago ( give or take a couple of months). My family and I went to Paris, Arles, France and then traveled to Amsterdam. Our goal was to follow the footprints of Vincent Van Gogh and seek out his favorite painting locations. While we traveled we also took detours to feed our own curiosities and explore the countryside. It goes without saying that this trip was a dream come true and one I would do over in a heart beat.

One of the things that I loved most was the ability to experience this with my parents, sister, husband and two sons. I was grateful for the trip, overwhelmed by my surroundings,  and felt pretty blessed to have two  easy-going sons. They didn’t mind the heat, hustle of the trains or being carried ‘cocoon’ style. :)It was magnificent or as the French say, “c’était magnifique”!!!!!!!!

Au Revoir!
