we stopped for a night at lake annecy on our way … the city of annecy is coined the “venice of france,” as it’s built upon these darling little canals. in spite of the horrible weather our first day (o the weather outside is frightful, indeed!) we were still able to do some exploring. cheese, wine, cheese, wine … and so it goes. c’est partfait.
the sun greeted us the next morning, so we actually got to glimpse the alps beyond the lake on our way out of town. we also stumbled upon the most gorgeous lake-side church that caused me to screech, stop! go back! to monsieur maxey, who graciously obliged. i jumped out of the car to snap a few photos, and also took a moment to pause and drink it all in. another one of those, “i just can’t believe it” moments to add to our list. how did we get here? living this life, seeing these things, having these experiences. so very grateful. blessed.
