This past Spring Ben and I got the chance to explore the Palace of Versailles, France for a day and we had so much fun soaking in its beauty. The rich history, the royal residence, and the gorgeous gardens... when can I move in?! Have you guys ever been? What was your favorite part?
Personally, my favorite part is not only the incredible beauty (hello, Hall of Mirrors) but the interesting history behind the Palace and the "Sun King," King Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI (and Marie Antoinette). I have always been utterly fascinated with royal history for some reason - and some of my favorite books and shows include those that surround that theme.
Anyway, we were really lucky with our weather because the day we were there it was pouring rain, but it miraculously stopped right when we got there (and had to stand in line outside), and then stopped again when it was time head back out to explore the gardens. Talk about lucky.
I was actually only twelve-weeks pregnant at this time (but was über bloated for some reason (thanks to all the travel)) but I was still trying to hide my pregnancy haha. I tell ya, it's not that easy of a task. I looked like I had a nice, little, sexy FUPA going on, but sometimes you just have to go with it. Thank goodness for loose-fitting pants!
