From Paris To Normandy: The Blogger’s Brocanting Tour Is This Thursday!

The 1st “Kimberly Hites: From Paris to Normandy” shopping tour is finally here!  On Thursday of this week a great group of gals and myself will be meeting Cat from Sunday Brocantes and her husband Alain in Paris for seven days of glorious French vintage shopping.  We’ll be headed to the famous Parisian flea market on Friday then on to Normandy to explore the French countryside.  Can you tell I’m excited?

I know I’ve posted this photo before, but I just love it!  It’s me and Cat in Trouville last year at this time.  I’m so glad I met her.

While everyone is familiar with the sights and allure of Paris, I thought I’d share some romantic images from Normandy.

The architecture is to-die-for.

I guess I’m good to go. The French will never know I’m American.  LOL  Do you think I’ll blend in or look touristy?

Follow along with me:

Blessings,
Kim
