Le Mans, France – Valentin’s Family Home

Coming home is always a special trip – visiting with family and re-connecting with friends.    This is especially true when your visit is to a different country to celebrate bringing another family member into the fold!  One of Valentin’s brothers, Ben, married Melissa (Yay!  A really fun American Sister-In-Law!!)  six months ago – and since the wedding was in the States most of Ben’s extended family wasn’t able to attend.  Valentin’s mom, Annie, and dad, Daniel, therefore planned a ‘2nd wedding’ for Ben & Melissa!  The food was a 5-Star 5-course taste of heaven – filet with fois gras, countless cheeses, bottomless champagne and wine, chocolate cake and creme brulee . . .  I’m salivating thinking about it now! The live band was amazing (and the talented lead singer wardrobe changed five times!!)  Amazingly, the older the crowd, the longer they stayed!  Valentin’s grandparents shut the place down while I pleaded off with the boys about an hour earlier (1:30am).  What a magical evening!

To make the weekend even more special, two of Daniel’s brothers hosted & celebrated their birthdays at one of their wonderful homes – which happens to be over 250 years old!  It was so much fun to have all the kids (and adults) running, playing, drinking & simply enjoying having the family together!
