A Month in China: Planning the Trip

April 24, 2019

When I got pregnant with Noey I knew I wanted to use part of my generous maternity leave to spend some time traveling.

Despite the nausea and lack of appetite, I still had a ton of fun and love looking back on these photos. In total we spent 6 full days in France, 2 in Loire Valley and then 4 days in Paris.
