Oh happy day! Spring has sprung. I won't get too attached to the warmer weather. Calendar-wise a few more weeks of winter remain, but I am seasonally giddy each year as brilliant blooms begin to emerge and the sky fades from grey to blue.
Here is an idea for a weekend getaway:
Train to Brussels
Aboard the TGV, French-speaking Belgium is less than an hour and a half away from Paris. Reputed for the confection of chocolate and beer, and its wealth of Art Nouveau architecture, why not steal a weekend away in Brussels?
Or a daytrip to Chateau Pierrefonds nestled in the Picardie forest:
If the French countryside is a bit far to travel to in a day, you might find some inspiration for house painting projects.
Also, French Fashion Week is upon us. Gather inspiration from the best. Follow the link in the forum.
I hope to hear from you sometime soon!
