Warning: Silly Jane Austen Word Play Straight Ahead

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a francophile possessed with an obsession, must be in want of ___________.

Fill in the blank, dear readers. What is it that you like to read/learn/obsess about?

I'm assuming most of you have a sweet spot for Paris, otherwise you'd be acutely annoyed with my daily photos. But photos aside, what else would you like to see when you stop by? I ask because I am working on a few projects related to Paris, travel and French film, and wondered if I should incorporate more of those topics into the blog.

Anything else? Fashion? Hot French men?

I'd love to hear your thoughts so I can stop banging my head against the table. I'll send you a virtual eclair for each suggestion.

Francophile? Me? Is it that obvious? :) Hmmm…I never thought I read anything in the passive periphrastic on this site! I don’t know if it’s a real need, but I’d love to read what you’re doing vis-a-vis French film and travel, as I’m a fan of both. But I’ll keep reading even if you don’t change a thing, ’cause I love what you do!

I am thrilled to hear about anything and everything French. Your personal experiences there are also so much fun to read! Love the new banner.

this may not be much of a help, but being part french myself (my greatgrandparents were immigrants), I know almost nothing about it. My grandfather was not allowed to speak french by his parents. They wanted to be AMERICAN. So, I am always trying to see what it “means” to be french. I have no culture for it. Everyone says french women are more sexy, and there was recently an article to the opposite end, so, what does it all mean, hm? to be french?

both fashion and hot french men sound like fantastic topic ideas.

Fashion would be good to read. Especially something real and budget-friendly. Most fashion blogs are completely not practical for a mom of kids with a single income.

I do like your photography though!

I love all about the French. They’re captivating personality, their haute couture, their charisma, they’re history, the whole versailles thing, the gorgeous french boys, Marie Antoinette, the blinding city lights of paris, and the classic, timeless romanticism Paris oozes.
