Happy 100 to a fellow “inner-French” girl who loved to eat well! An inspiration to foodies everywhere.

This summer is going to be the best.
My best Caroline is coming up next week for 9 days of fun, food, capitol hill block party, and vino. And on top of all of this, just found out that my parisian roommates are coming to Seattle for almost a week in August! How did this girl get to be so lucky?
One of my best friends is currently spending a month in France and as I peruse her blog and all her pictures, I’m having all these flashbacks of my time there. Her pictures of Mont Saint-Michel remind me of the time my roommates were there and we waddled through the water, took pictures, and laughed, all while carrying a huge loaf of bread and speculoos. I loved all those simple moments and as I continue to look at her pictures, I remember again how thankful I am for the time I got to spend there. So happy that she gets to experience these things too.
I love these illustrations by Vahram Muratyan, a lover of Paris and a wanderer of New York. He has created an awesome visual description of the difference between Paris and New York. J’aime ça/ I love this.
To tell you the truth, museums aren’t exactly my thing. All the lines, tourists, and paintings after paintings are just too overwhelming. But I figured since I’m here in Paris, I better see these places everybody talks about. In two days time I caught up with the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Musée Rodin, and the Mémorial de la Shaoh. The Musée Rodin made all these lines worth it. The museum is located in Hôtel Biron and the garden behind it (where Rodin found most of his inspiration) is simply breathtaking and inspired me to sculpt. Well not really, I just used that for dramatic affect. But it was gorgeous! A small pond, rows of fall-ridden trees, still-in-bloom roses, and his sculptures surround the garden. Perfect way to spend the day.
