Bonjour de Bordeaux!
On this particular day, after having a marathon lunch with the ladies, we always take a walk around the city to help our food digest and finally cool off with some ice cream. This particular place is called Amore, I think, which is located on Rue Saint Catherine (the largest pedestrian shopping walk in France) puts a flowery twist on their presentation!
Instead of just a scoop of ice cream, they present your cone in the shape of a rose! It's beautiful and TASTY! Couldn't ask for anything better - unless of course, if it was FREE, but that's another thing!
Living in France, you have to look at things in a different light. France is beautiful for me everyday, so it is only polite to be beautiful for her.
The French have this flair for making art out of everyday experiences.
Here is food for thought: take 5 bucks. You could go to a fast food restaurant and choke down a hot dog and fries OR you can take that same 5 bucks, go to a deli, get a couple of slices turkey or ham or roast beef, your favorite cheese, perhaps a cupcake, and a can of something to drink and probably have some change left over. The experience is different, but it's still the same 5 bucks! Invest in yourself!!! Too long have we, Americans, and I speak for myself here too, get wrapped up in the rat race that we don't see or notice the beauty around us! Call it Hippy Talk if you will, however ask yourself this question... When wad the last time you were REALLY good to yourself?!
The French have this wonderful ability to enjoy the simple pleasures without being gluttons!
France has taught me to ENJOY the experience, even though at times it can be difficult, but that's life!!! C'est la Vie!
This week, I encourage you to live your life with flair, add some art to your experience and by all means ENJOY it!
kisses and love....

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...
