I recently returned from France where I was lucky enough to be able to travel with my Mum. Paris has embellished my life with such extraordinary charm and it was so wonderful bonding with my mother in a completely new and different environment. We were graced with some unbelievable Parisian weather and explored the sights, smells, and flavours of Paris.
One of our favorite days was spent in Giverny, where Claude Monet made his gardens and infamous waterlilies paintings. As Monet has inspired me, may his garden inspire you– Happy Mother’s Day!
