Lunch at the Cotswolds

What could be better than Paris and London? The Cotswolds...



This little heart with an arrow and some faded initials was carved into the sides of one the houses. Soooo sweet.



We went to 3 little villages in The Cotswolds, and it was hands down my favorite of the whole trip! An absolute fairyland and some of buildings could be as much as 600 years old.




I don't have to say much to convince you that you NEED to come here for a visit:



LOVE...love...LOVE The Cotswolds

Are you getting sad that it's almost time to come home? I went to Italy and Switzerland for 17 days years ago. As much as loved every minute I did get homesick. And I didn't even have kids back then. My trip was also with my mom. :)

Take rubbings of those gravestones - it's a great way to remember the age of them...and touch some history. Did that while in France and love them in my scrapbook :)
