Happy Bastille Day

July 14, 2011

A very happy Bastille Day to all!

Not being of French heritage, but having the love of all things French in my blood, today is a day I pay homage. My gosh, I don’t even know where to begin on this one. More foods than I can list, wine, champagne, linens, candles, paper, perfume/cologne, tea, soap–and these are just the quick things off the top of my head.

But the thing I hold most dear in my heart for the French is their love of the moment & attention to detail. All things I strive for each day in my own life. To slow down and really enjoy your meal, to stop and smell that spectacular rose, to notice all the fine details.

My glass of rose’ will be raised this evening in honor and savored.
