One item that has always been on my bucket list is visiting the French countryside and staying at a chateau. This trip I was able to cross both off of the list. Sam and I took the train to Angers in the Loire Valley. We rode out 40minutes into the countryside where we arrived at the breathtaking Chateau Challain. It is one of the few chateaus where you can spend the night. There were only two other people staying on the property with only two caretakers overseeing the grounds. It truly felt like the whole place was ours. On top of spending the night, we were also treated to a private dinner for the two of us prepared by a local chef using ingredients grown on the grounds and at local farms. We dined in the music room filled with fresh flowers and lit by candlelight. It was insanely romantic. After dinner we strolled through the tiny town and discussed our dreams, our future, and the kind of life we want to create for ourselves. Even after 10 years together, we still learn new things about eachother.
