Bienvenue mes amis!!
The title of my post comes from one of my all time favourite movies “Sabrina”, the American chauffeurs’ daughter who is sent to Paris to make her start in life and learn her trade. In the older version, Audrey Hepburn plays Sabrina, and she’s sent to Paris to learn to cook. In the new version, Julia Ormond plays Sabrina, and she goes to Paris to work in the fashion industry. On her return, she believes she will win the heart of the handsome younger son of a wealthy family, but she ends up spending more time with the older business type brother (played by Harison Ford). She eventually convinces him that ‘Paris is always a good idea’.
After 5 years of hosting Paris in July, I thought I would expose a little piece of the real me....
It seems, since I was quite small, I have always agreed with Sabrina. France is a good idea. (If you couldn't hear my response - I told my dad that I would like to back to France!). So here we go.....
Here at Thyme-for-tea, I am going to be posting two original posts each week – Tuesday’s Travel posts and Thursdays Taste of Paris. Also, each Monday, I’ll post the Monday menu – an outline of what’s happening across the Paris in July Hosting Blogs.
I have lined up an interview with a French chef, I’ll be reviewing travel idea’s like visiting Parisian Markets, wandering through a day in the life of a lover of Paris, walking tours of my special places in France. I’ve also set myself the challenge of reading a couple of food related travel books – Mastering the art of French eating, by Ann Mah, and Lunch in Paris, by Elizabeth Band.
I love this blogging event, and one of the things I enjoy most is getting around to visiting everyone else’s posts. I will try to pop in each week and see what’s happening. Between Karen and myself, we try to do a wrap up post each Sunday that outlines the activity that has been occurring across the variety of bloggers who have signed up. For this reason, we encourage you to comment on the Monday Menu Mr Linky.
