Vive La France!

There are so many reasons to love France and French culture… food, fashion, architecture, art, history, FOOD, and the joie de vivre that the French seem to have mastered. The French don’t rush through life. Instead, they savor it and linger through it the way that they linger over a beautiful meal for hours. Here are a few French things that I love:
Food, glorious food. French food is generally delicious and French culinary techniques are the standard of excellence in the culinary world. However, rustic, classic French foods like bouef bourgignon and herbed chicken breast on a crusty baguette are just as good, if not better. My weakness lies in the glorious pastries and croissants.

French Impressionism

Amazing museums: The Musee D’Orsay, Pablo Picasso Museum, and The Louvre


The elegant architecture. Paris is such a beautiful city.

The Chateaux of the Loire Valley and their sometimes romantic and scandalous history. Fashion. First and formeost, Chanel.

The decadance of The Palace of Versailles.

Jacques, the painfully chic French bulldog who is in touch with his feminine side. I’m kidding.
