Love at first sight
Hey ya'll and Yeehaw!
Greetings from this side of the planet!
Big Mama hasn't set foot on American soil for more than four years. There are a number of reasons for this, the main one is the 24 hour transatlantic flight - complete with layovers, wait times, and overall security BS, still, it is (barely) worth it, but a girls gotta complain.
I remember my first airline flight, I must have been eight or nine years old. I was travelling with my aunt, going to Mexico for some reason, and I became so ecstatic when we flew through a cloud.
WE WERE FLYING THROUGH A CLOUD!
How cool is that?! My aunt tried to quell my excitement, she didn't want to bother the other passengers, but can't a kid be a kid?! Sheesh! And to this day, when I fly through a cloud, it still fills me with happiness!
I am in The States for three weeks. I am currently in Texas, after spending a week in Las Vegas, visiting good friends and enjoying my time with them.
I love my friends. My Vegas friends, much like the city itself, has seen and experienced some things! We discussed the normalcy of the craziness, and it is these stories that have shaped us into the human beings we are today. Las Vegas is like no other city - it is the most fake, most real city on the planet. And I wouldn't have it any other way!!
One day, I visited my sweet friend, Julie M, who is an animal lover and overall lover of life.
She is so giving and surrounds herself with horses, chickens, dogs, birds... in other words, she is Snow White. The photo above is Julie's coq, he is a funny fucker and such a lover!!
Check out the I HATE FRANCE section of this blog to read about the life of chickens and how it relates to French culture. Julie spoiled me, just as much as she spoils her fur babies, and like my fellow mammals, I loved every little bit of it!!!!
In fact, all of my Vegas friends spoiled me -- they treated me like Cleopatra, and who doesn't like to be treated like royalty?!! And I WAS SPOILED! But, it is ALWAYS reciprocated.
I LOVE spoiling my friends, but my Las Vegas peeps take it to the next level!
I am so grateful and lucky to be loved, by so many and so much, it makes my heart swell like the ocean.
Also, just wanted to let you know that modern technology has been complicated for me, therefore photos are scare for the time being, but once I'm back on French soil, you will meet my beautiful friends, and fall in love with them too! It's kinda hard not to!
Big Texas kiss, my darlin's! Eat well, spoil yourself and spoil your friends, because as I mentioned above, who doesn't like to be spoiled!?

Bonjour et Bienvenue!
Thank you for stopping by for a spell!
I am a 40-something year old American woman. Born in Texas, raised in Las Vegas!
Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
