I can't believe it's already mid August...This summer went by way too fast!!! It happens every other summer, time is flying, but I still can't get used to the idea. I remember when I was a kid, and summer holidays seemed like forever...Those were the days! Now, I'm counting the days of the week, waiting for the weekends (or the paycheck)...and summer is over in a heartbeat...
I'm this nostalgic for a reason! A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend found out he won't be able to take a week off from work in September, which meant our plans to go to Greece with our friends were ruined! Needless to say I was on the verge of depression...Now, with no plans to hold on to, I could easily say my summer is over :(.
And as if this wasn't hard enough, I've been having some really tough and stressful weeks at work, which makes the need for an escape even stronger.
I've been thinking of paying a short visit to my old friend, the Black Sea, next weekend. Maybe this is going to ease my pain... But c'mon, who am I fooling?!? The Black Sea is no Greece!
Having said that, I'll now leave you with more pictures from the Loire Valley, taken the day we visited Villandry. Villandry was one of my favorite castles, with its beautiful gardens of love. The gardens are divided into 4 sections: tender love, passionate love, fickle love and tragic love. It's truly magical.
That day we also visited Chateau D'Usse (last 2 photos), thought to have been the inspiration behind Charles Perrault's fairytale, The Sleeping Beauty.
