My wonderful friend Patricia at http://papillonbleuuk.blogspot.com has reached 100 followers and her 100th follower is French- just like Patricia! In honor of this Patricia asks us in her blog.....What is France to You?
I had to sit and think about this question for awhile. I have not traveled many places and I have never been to France. I have never even left the United States except one trip to Canada that I don't remember when I was 3 years old! . France makes my mind think of beauty and breath taking architecture and bold vibrant colors and food and art! France makes me think of beautiful clothes- dripping with exquisite detail. Rolling green countrysides, cute little cottages with sweet wooden doors and little knot herb gardens. I think of food that has more to do with quality and taste than it does with quantity. I have no idea if any of the things that pop into my head are close to being accurate- but the question was what is France to you- and when I really take the time to think about it- those are the things I wrote down.
However.....after writing this down and feeling quite silly because I am writing down things that pop into my head about a place I have never been to ---I suddenly had the most important thought of all. France- to me- is a sweet, kind friend that I had the good fortune to meet through blogging. France is adorable little dolls, sweet little cakes and pastries lovingly hand made for the dolls and magical stories that bring you into the dolls world. France- to me- is my dear sweet friend Patricia from Papillon Bleu and her magical world she shares with all of us- so France now has a special place in my heart because of her. Thank you Patricia :) I'm sure you will soon have 100 more followers because everyone needs some magic in their life ♥
