For nearly 4 years I've been going on and on about how much I wanted to go back to Strasbourg. FrenchBoy and I visited briefly a few months before our marriage in order to meet with the French Consulate guy and get some sworn documents, but I really didn't get to see much of the city.
So, while my mom was here visiting for the holidays we jumped in the car, picked up Mademoiselle R on the way, and headed to Strasbourg for some sight-seeing. And it sure was purty!
In spite of the weather and a rather grumpy start to the day ("Why is the garage filled with water?"), we had a pretty fun little day trip.

I'm hoping to make it back during Les Soldes. They have great shopping there of course. And they have all the fancy high-end luxuryshops that Metz doesn't have.
(Probably due to all the rich Germans?) Most importantly, they have a MAC cosmetics store! If they would just open on in Metz, my life would be complete!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. Shallow as a kiddy pool.
