Happy Thursday Loves! It's a sunny day in Limoges, I'm enjoying a delicious cup of coffee, checking up on the blogs I visit daily, while doing a little Christmas shopping, I love mornings, this is when I feel the most productive. After I blog to you, I am going to do a nice little yoga session, it feels good to be back on my training game, I want to have a strong performance for the Paris Marathon and that begins now.

This morning I received something pretty awesome in the mail, my parents sent Kyle and I a Thanksgiving Care Package, filled with all things we need to celebrate here in France. Also inside the box was one of the coolest gifts I've ever received. My mom included an old lock accompanied by two keys for Kyle and I to bring the Love-Lock bridge in Paris. Such a amazing gift, that will forever hold a special place in my heart. Earlier in the week we also received a care package from Kyle's parents and an amazing gift from Kyle's cousin Tom and his girlfriend Jaime, it was a beautiful picture collage they had made for us. We are truly blessed some very amazing family and friends, we couldn't be more grateful.

Today's project is getting our apartment organized, it's so much bigger then our apartment back home and the apartment we had in Greece, with size comes more work! Since we pick up our puppy next week, I have to puppy proof the apartment, nothing like waiting until the last minute. We are officially scheduled to pick him up next Wednesday at 2:30, I couldn't be more excited to meet the little guy. The manfriend and I have gone all out for our new puppy, he basically has his own room, tons of dog toys and treats, he'll be living like a king. (Excessive maybe but we're just super excited.)

I'm really hoping the weekend gets here quickly, the manfriend has this weekend off so we are packing our weekender bags and doing some traveling. When it comes to picking a destination, we are the worst, I have a major problem with being indecisive, (I think I've mentioned this before) I want to go everywhere. Because of the indecisiveness, we've comprised a list of places we want to see while we are in Europe, we then narrowed our choices down to four for this weekend; Brussels, London, Bordeaux or Barcelona. Bordeaux won this time because it is the closest, and who doesn't love wine country. I'm really excited to see this French City, its surrounding countryside and enjoy some delicious wine.

List of Places To See While We Are In Europe

I'm sure I left some spots off of there and the manfriend will remind me later. Hopefully over the next two years, maybe even longer, we can explore all that Europe has to offer. It will certainly make the story of us a little more interesting. 

Today I am leaving you with a quote from, William Barclay. William was a popular Scottish theologian. I love the power this quote has and its simple beauty. We are all in some way trying to figure out who we are and what we want out of life, it takes longer for some then others but never stop trying to figure it out. When you do stumble upon this discovery, it may very well be one of the most important days in your life. 


There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why.
-William Barclay

Strasbourg, Toulouse and Montpellier are beautiful french big cities, you can add them to your list.
Not very far from Limoges there are some wonderfull small villages like Turennes or Collonge La Rouge that you must see !
If you drive less than 1 hour from Limoges you can also take a walk to the Vassiviere lake or to the mount Gargan which is a wonderfull no man's land.
