Barefoot Books Ambassadors go to France!

Last weekend, eight of the top Barefoot Books Ambassadors in the world - four from North America (including my team leader, Laurie) and four from Europe - went on an amazing tip to France that they won for their performance as Ambassadors during the 4th quarter of 2012 (October, November, December).  The trip to France is often one of the top prizes in our yearly 4th quarter challenge, and it's one of the most special and unique perks of being a Barefoot Books Ambassador.  Laurie took some gorgeous photographs while she was there, and I wanted to share them with'll have to head over to Flickr to see them all, but I promise they are worth it!

Scenes Around Le Tupe - Le Tupe' is the private vacation home of Barefoot Books founder, Nancy Traversy, and her husband Marty.  The home is located in a teeny town "Noilan" in southwest France.  To put it mildly - it's out of this world.

Day Trip to Toulouse - Toulouse is the city closest to their home.  Also known as "The Rose City", a shopping and touring excursion to Toulouse is always on the agenda.

Trip to Carcassonne - Carcassonne is a beautifully preserved medieval city complete with castle and cathedral.  Being there is seriously like stepping back into time onto the pages of a fairy tale - perfect for those of us whose stock-in-trade is beautiful story books!

Color Me Barefoot - The world of Barefoot Books is a colorful one. Step inside any of our books and it's an obvious and clear distinction.  Our brand of "color" however, is so much more than ink on a page. The colors are who we are, what we love, how we experience, how we celebrate, how we live, how we connect, how we learn.  Spend time with us, meet our founders, explore what we do, what we seek, what we share, what we love and celebrate and you see that the "Color of Barefoot" is not only how we live, it's magic. Color is expression. Color is vibrance, it's exploration, it's celebration. Color is essential. Color can reach deep inside you. Color can speak to you and rest assured it can transform your soul.
