Happy Blogday to Me, Happy Blogday to Me...


Today marks the one year anniversary of my blog. Coincidentially, today also marks the 50th wedding anniversary of my parents - a much more impressive milestone.

All the same, I'm happy to celebrate both occasions and take stock of my effort.

I began writing French Style for a few reasons. I wanted to learn the technology, I wanted to develop a more colloquial writing style, I wanted to impart some of what I have learned after years of travel and study. Foremost, I wanted to share my love of France.

French Style was meant to capture the je ne sais quoi of France - that intangible quality that makes something distinctive and attractive. To be honest, I don't know that I've been particularly successful. Some posts are better than others. Some months are better than others. But, you know what? I don't really care because I've had more fun writing this blog than I ever anticipated. And, that is the unexpected result of French Style!
