Francophilia

January 11, 2009

 

My previous post got me to thinking about France and everything French.

 

Not just a beautiful, historic, culturally significant place. But also, interestingly, the origin of many of my favorite things:

  • Chanel (of course)
  • chignons (tres chic!)
  • The Cannes Film Festival
  • champagne! (I’m “c”ing a pattern here…)
  • Claire de Lune – Debussy

 

also, some fabulous art…

  • Van Gogh
  • Monet
  • Degas

        

 

and some culinary delights…

  • Brie
  • French press coffee (an unverified assumption)
  • Croissants
  • Madeleines

     

 

How is it that everything French is très magnifique?!

I want to go to there!
