Take Me Away Recap – August 2018

The calendar says September but it’s definitely still feeling like August here in New Jersey!  Luckily, I think the temperatures are due to cool down later in the week.  Although, I have a hard time saying goodbye to summer each year, once Labor Day passes, I start to look forward to fall.

What fun to be out on the open road with a bunch of classic cars!  So many cute ones…see if you can pick a favorite.  Thankfully, the weather seemed to hold out so they could enjoy a beautiful ride through the countryside.

And last but not least, Bonnie from Living With Thanksgiving took us away to the Loire Valley

Flower Arrangements at Chateau Chenonceau

Surely you will agree, her tour of the chateau was magnificent and made even more beautiful by all the fresh flower arrangements in the rooms.  Interesting to learn that the flowers are grown right on the property too.  Be sure to take her tour!

Thank you to everyone who joins us!  If you have a trip to share with us, please note that our parties take place on the first Friday of each month (Thursday nights for you early-birds.)
