Bonjour and merci. ?

The past week on the blog has been one of the most visited and commented on in the history of TSLL celebrating all things French for an entire week, and for your time, interest and engagement I am most grateful.

Every year when the celebratory themed weeks conclude, it is my wish that every one of you who visits throughout the year, and then during these Annual weeks, taking the time to comment in order to enter could receive a giveaway. And while that is not possible, I genuinely want to give away items and finds I love and think you might as well. This year, the giveaways total in value of more than $600, and it seems a small penny for all that your support enables me to do over the course of the year, to continue to bring both French and British content and inspiration as well as content about living a life you love each and every day, but this is one small way I hope to let you know I am thankful for your enthusiasm, your kind and constructive engagement with not only me but others as well as the courage to share what you love about living your one and only life so that others might realize doing the same (reveling in the everyday moments that make your day and life possible, the small, simple yet awesome pleasures and luxuries and daring to focus on what makes you smile) is a way to elevate their own, because it does, it really does.

~the brands and some of the items given away during this year’s Annual TSLL French Week~

Norman and I have been enjoying the weekend at home after a day trip to Portland on Friday where lovely moments and finds occurred. Saturday evening (captured in the photo above)we each took our respective favorite chairs and began to melt; it is likely what we will be doing on Sunday as well. Tinkering in the garden, cutting a few flowers such as these sunflowers and simply being grateful for a cozy home to relax in, that is what this weekend is all about before the next week begins and the blog returns to its regular schedule. I hope you too are having a relaxing weekend, and however your upcoming week looks, may how you spend today be enriched by adding, partaking or infusing something you love about the French culture into what you do.

While traveling back to France may not be around the corner for me or perhaps for you as well, this past week has deepened yet again my appreciation for a culture that reminds us to slow down and savor, take the time to notice and get lost in the pleasures of everyday life.

Thank you, merci beaucoup, for making this week possible. Let’s do it again next year, shall we? ☺️ ❤️??

You are so generous with your give-always to your subscribers. I enjoy learning about new products and perhaps will own some someday. Take some time for yourself and relax. You deserve it!

  8. Shannon thank you. I thoroughly enjoyed French week even though I live here. It is a gentle reminder of why I love living in France. Sometimes when you live somewhere that is so appreciated by others you can sometimes take things for granted. Have a lovely relaxing Sunday with Norman. Kameela xx??

    1. Dear Kameela, You are so fortunate to live in such an amazing culture. But, I totally agree that we often become rather immune to our surroundings as we live our day-to-day lives. I took a road trip yesterday exploring an area I haven’t visited for several years and dining in a restaurant that had recently had a total change in style and cuisine. It was wonderful, enlightening, and reminded me that travels, even limited ones, enhance our lives. I hope you have a peaceful Sunday as well.

      1. I must smile at your response Shannon, my Lola has commandeered an entire sofa. She will tolerate an interloper but will stare at you, unceasingly, until you go somewhere else. Norman appears to have claimed his spot and has no intention of sharing.
