Also if you get there early you can step right up to the front of the gates - amazing! Once people start lining up they block it off so you have to stand back like 12 feet.

I’ll start at the very beginning.
First word of advice for going to Versailles - get there HELLA early so you can see this: The sun rises in front of Versailles - so this is me standing in front of the palace but looking in the direction of the city. Actually the building you can see there is part of Versailles - it’s the stables (I’m fairly positive). 
I got there at 7:30 am thinking they opened at 7. There were two other ladies who showed up at the same time as me so it was really just the three of us mosying around the ‘driveway’ for like 45 minutes. They actually don’t open until 8 (at least in September) and we waited until a few minutes after 9 when they finally started letting people in. That’s when the whole tourist-y feeling really sets in but getting there early makes you kinda feel like you have the whole place to yourself - even for a teeny bit. :)

oh nothing’s going to change my love for you
i wanna spend my life with you
so we make love on the grass under the moon
no one call tell, damned if i do
forever journey on golden avenues
i drift in your eyes since i love you
i got that beat in my veins for only rule
love is to share, mine is for you

I just saw your post regarding your long trip to Paris. Can I live vicariously through you? LOL! I'm so envious right now! In a good way, though, that post you wrote spoke to me in so many levels! I'm very happy for you to have this opportunity, seize it, my friend, seize it with passion and enjoy every minute of it! Bonne chance, travel safe! Bisous! xx <3

THANK YOU!

Excited to share all about it!!!

Wow, your blog's pretty amazing, i'm in love with it. :) Why do you like Versailles and Marie Antoinette so much? x

@beating-heart-in-love

Versailles - never been (yet). But Marie Antoinette I’m in love with simply for the way it makes me feel I guess. The visuals are great and everything but truly it is Sofia Coppola’s artistry and directing that makes it. It’s like an entire experience. One of those movies that you can think about over and over again…

so excited I&#8217;ll get to go in winter :)
