The Gardens of Versailles at the Château de Versailles, approximately 12 miles southwest of Paris, France, is one of the most magnificent gardens I’ve ever visited. It’s an incredible 2,000-acre garden that was first built in 1624 but looks quite similar to how it would have nearly 400 years ago. We visited during our time in Paris as a day trip, and I was absolutely blown away by the complexity and sheer magnitude of these gorgeous gardens. Truly, I’ve never seen anything like it. I can’t even imagine how this space would have wowed visitors centuries ago who had little in the way of a frame of reference.

I mentioned in this post, that we are moving to Connecticut this week! I’ve felt lots of different things about this move, but 90% of it is pure excitement to live somewhere new and different from Michigan (although I’ve heard Connecticut is a lot like Northern Michigan where I grew up, but we shall see). I’m also nervous, the good kind of nervous, about moving, because we’ve never been to Connecticut. We won’t have seen the house, the neighborhood, or anything about where we will be living until we roll up in our moving truck (thanks COVID!), yet despite the smidge of uncertainty and hesitation I’m feeling, I’m still so excited for our new adventure! Here’s what I’m looking forward to the most about moving to the East Coast.
