For this post, I decided to include another photo from my time in Europe. During our time there, we were able to visit Claude Monet's garden in Giverny, which is a small French town located about an hour outside of Paris. I absolutely fell in love with this place and it's easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to in my life. Despite having several other people exploring the gardens at the same time we were, it was still incredibly peaceful and quiet. Half of the garden was done in a Japanese style (pictured here), which was really stunning and green, and the other side was absolutely covered with flowers with a range of color that was so breathtaking. The gardens are such a magical place and it's no small wonder where Monet gained the inspiration for his masterpieces. I would love to spend any given day sitting on one of the benches you find aorund the gardens just looking at the stunning surroundings and reading one of my favorite books.
