Highlights of Our Weekend Getaway

IMG_1733IMG_1737            IMG_1722I’ve always loved poetry, so I had to go see the bust of Longfellow and see the Evangeline Oak that he supposedly wrote beneath.  These were actually found near the grounds of St. Martin de Tours Church in downtown St. Martinville.

About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 14, 20 and 27. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!

    Longfellow is one of our favourite posts. We are reading Evangeline at the moment! I enjoyed your photos.

    God bless!
