i have always wanted to see and tour versailles. i was so glad we (candice, nicole and their husbands) made the trip out there before the retreat to check it out. regardless of visiting on probably the hottest day of the year (and having not slept in 24 hours because of my red eye flight + jet lag) it was still breathtakingly beautiful and worth it. if you ever get the chance, GO!
*i think candice took that picture of me. but it might have been nicole. i can’t remember. and the photo of the three of us is by candice’s husband, mark, but with nicole’s camera. :)
  1. these just might be my favorite photos from your trip.

    Isn't it magical? Your pictures are dreamy.Is was by far, my favorite part of visiting France for the first time two years ago. I actually got to stay for the fireworks show they do at night with music, ad it was unreal. If you go back, it is a MUST.

    i went to versailles my senior year of high school, and even though it's only been 5 years i already don't remember it very well. i think it was because my day there went by in a BLUR it was so awesome! i definitely need to go back someday.

  14. So beautiful… I would like to go there too! Nice pics!

  15. I LOVED versailles when we went! So beautiful! I really want to go again, I hardly remember since I went when I was like 9 I think. I know, spoiled right?

    Your trip has bumped France back up onto my list, because even though I have been there, I don't think I really saw it, y'know what I mean?

    Great photos, as always! Versailles is one of the greatest places I've ever visited. If you ever get the opportunity, you should visit the Windsor Castle just outside of England. That place is PACKED with history!

  17. Karen

    Oh, it looks beautiful!! I love palaces (it is/was a palace right?) :)

  28. Annie

    Versailles is definitely a place to visit before you die, and its HUGE – the grounds are a smilar size to the whole town of versailles which itself isnt that small.

  29. Nikki

    Gorgeous pics!!!


  30. my husband and i went around the same time you guys did! we spent almost a full day in versailles and decided to go back and walk around the gardens our last morning in paris. SO beautiful!

  31. So beautiful, Naomi!
    It's strange that versailles is so empty of people. Because last summer when I visited it was awfully crowded!

    Looking forward to see more Parisian photos! xo
