“Bonne fête!” mon mari sweetly exclaimed in a mid-morning call. Similarly, all the Frenchies I’ve crossed paths with today have been generous with their 4th of July wishes. But at the same time I dream of Cheddarwursts, first-degree firework singes and backyard barbecues.

I had a rendezvous in the 16eme this morning, in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.  The most American thing I could do was point, reacquaint myself with her glory and take a proper phone pic.  I assure you I wasn’t the only one.

Bonne fête!

Patriotically yours,

Nothing declares the commencement of summer like breaking out the onesie.  My friends, summer has arrived in Paris!  After taking an honest look in the mirror, this might be my 1980s polyblend onesie’s last summer, a bittersweet farewell to a lot of memories of warm beer, vicious farmer’s tans and other slightly regrettable adventures of my early 20s. It’s really not too sad; I’m wise enough now to know it really was never very becoming anyway.  Cheers to getting a little bit older and finally investing in natural fibers!

But now that the sun is out to play, I have been packing a lunch and seeing where the day takes me, often including this superfood salad and juice.  Between some rendez-vous, a little picnic for one is one of summer’s perfect pleasures.
