Pompidou Center  Metz, France
Yesterday Bryce and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. Thanks to the generosity of friends we were able to get away for a wonderful 24 hours together.

We went to the brand new Pompidou Center in Metz. It just opened in May. Seems fitting as we went to the Pompidou in Paris last year for our 10th.

I know I won't be able to adequately describe the sheer awesomeness of this museum. I'll just let the pictures speak for me.

After the Pompidou we drove to the Ardennes in Belgium. There, we checked into a quaint hotel and promptly enjoyed an aperitif on the terrace. The hotel over looked the Semois river. From our room we could see a fly fisherman with hip waders and all. It was idyllic.

Today we rolled out of bed about 9:00 and then rolled into a chaise lounge in the hotel's garden. It was a wonderful 24 hours.

Congratulations! I'd love to have 24 hours alone with my husband & that museum looks like a great place to spend some of those hours.

I really liked the Metz Pompidou Centre. Worth popping in from time to time.

Cheers to remembering that it all started with the love between the two of you. xoxo Stacy. PS - how does a meeting in Paris sound. Maybe sometime in the spring of 2011?

Happy anniversary, a bit late. Looks like a wonderful celebration.
