The 7 things about me ~
1)  I am a devoted wife and mother of three amazing children.  My husband and I fell in love the moment we met.  We were married six months later.  That was almost 15 years ago.  My daughter once told me that he is my Prince Charming.  She is right. 
2)  Traveling is my passion.  I believe the world is a beautiful place with amazing people.  Although Paris is my favourite city, I anxiously await our yearly WDW vacations and dining with the princesses in Cinderella’s castle.  My family will tell you that I’m a kid at heart =)
3)  I love the arts ~ theatre, ballet, art, history, architecture, design, photography and the symphony.  I love all kinds of music.  I played the flute years ago but, sadly, it now sits on a shelf.
4)  I study architecture and interior design.  I think I will spend the rest of my life in school studying my many interests.  I wish there were more hours in a day.  So much to do in such little time.
5)  I enrolled in ballroom and salsa dancing.  I have no idea how I’m going to find the time but I believe where there is a will, there is a way!
6)  Roses are my favourite flower.
7)  How can I forget?!  We have two wonderful and, at times, mischievious French Bulldogs ~ Mlle Coco Paree and Monsieur Bogart Louis.
The ten bloggers that I am bestowing this award to ~
1) Chateau de Lillie
2) Une Femme d’un Certain Age
3) All Things French
4) Girl Cook In Paris
5) Fabulously French
6) Falling Off A High Heeled Life
7) Avignon In Photos
8) My Letters To Emily
9) Snapshots Of An Island
10) Style Obsession
xoxo, B

    Oh, thank you, thank you. I am beyond flattered that you have chosen me for this award. And, congratulations to you. You definitely deserve it. It is always so much fun to get to know some of our favorite people through these exchanges.

    You are so IN! I have never seen so many French bulldogs as I have in the last year. One, Edourd, lives next door to us and visits often. He is so, so adorable. He also weighs a ton. I usually have to carry him home because he wants to stay chez nous to play with our dogs.

    I have one little question: You told me to come for a visit because you had given me this fabulous award, however on your list you wrote, “Une Femme d'Un Certain Age and not “A Femme” — Une Femme is my pal Deja Pseu.

    You did mean me, non?

    Have a happy weekend. (I also married my Prince Charming. Are we lucky or what?)

    Thanks so much! I didn't realize you had three children – I bet that keeps you busy!

    I'll work on my post this morning – hopefully I can get it finished before I have to leave for work … eep!
