Frenchie Friday - May 24, 2024

More strikes coming out of France (the trains: SNCF/RER) and as we approach the Olympics the unions will use the event to get their way and cause havoc.

The inaugural direct flight between Phoenix and Paris took off yesterday!

I enjoyed this

It's strawberry season here in North Carolina and my good friend Brianna of Casual Foodist has one of my favorite ways to eat them: Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Honey Balsamic Dressing - try it, you'll love it! And try this Strawberry Galette with Sliced Almonds from Mon Petit Four for dessert

Personally I am counting the days until tomato and peach season here. Never tasted peaches so good and we eat them all summer long. I make this salad with pistachios and avocado several times a week - my own invention!

It's Memorial Day weekend and the whole internet is on sale, or practically as it seems like Murphy's law that some of the items I really want, like this shirt from Spanx refuses to go on sale! I am listing some of the ones I have my eye at the very end so that you don't have to scroll through all that. In stead, let's get to the links!

If Paris is your jam, I am here for you with all the deets. But I also do a lot of outdoor adventures looking for places that are off the beaten path in the U.S. as well.

Frenchie Friday - June 14, 2024 We had an AMAZING weekend in Charlotte! It was nice to go away without a plan, something we don't do a lot! Lesson learned, sometimes winging is fun too! France elections woo-wie! My gal pal, author Lindsey Tramuta has a great series of articles that she uses to detail French cultural and political happenings. She does a really good job of explaining the recent French elections. Also, another good article from Le Monde: Snap elections in France: How it works,...

Frenchie Friday - June 7, 2024 Did anyone watch any of the D-Day ceremony from Normandy yesterday? I did. And I could not help being moved by what I saw and heard. The Normandy American Cemetery is so beautiful on a regular day, but to see it full of veterans who were there is just amazing! My friend Kristin survived her rain-soaked 10-day trip to Paris (and Lyon). She was there for the French Open and did a fantastic write-up of her experience. If you ever consider attending the Roland...
