Launching Paris in July 2021

In 2010. when my friend Karen and I decided to come together to host a blogging experience to celebrate our love of all things French and Parisian – “Paris In July” was born. We both shared a deep interest and love of the French culture and way of life, & we wanted to create a community event to celebrate the city, the architecture and the food, wine, fashion, language, art, literature, cinema, culture and history. Little did we know then, that Paris in July would still be running in 2021.... and it was never a possibility in our minds, that we would only be visiting France virtually while the world experienced a pandemic. 

The aim of the month is, and always has been, to celebrate our French experiences through reading, watching, listening, observing, cooking and eating all things French!

There are no rules or targets in terms of how much you need to do or complete in order to be a part of this experience – just blog about anything French and you can join in! Some ideas might include;

  • reading a French themed book – fiction or non-fiction,
  • watching a French movie,
  • listening to French music,
  • cooking French food,
  • experiencing French, art, architecture and travel
  • remembering a real french holiday........

Now, launching Paris in July 2021, I'm sharing with you my collection of buttons you may use to join your posts with others.... you may also create your own. (The images I have used here have been sourced from free commons and attribution can be provided.) 

I will be adding Mr Linky next weekend, where you can sign up and share your intentions. You will note that I have created a space on my blog to keep a record of 2021 participants so you can check in on each other during the event. 

Too encourage you to start to imagine what you might contribute to Paris in July 2021, I'll share this quote....  and can anyone guess where this is from? 

All grown-ups were once children... but only few of them remember it.

I'm looking forward to your annual event. I believe that tourism to Paris is opening up again, so perhaps some of us will actually be there (I'm afraid not me). My July activities are currently in flux, so I can't promise to participate.
