Frenchy Friday

Who says they love Paris in the springtime? La Mom does -- when the temperatures get above 60°F, that is.

But this colorful flower market in Dordogne got La Mom's green thumb itching, malgré the chilly weather.

Here's a little taste of spring in Southwestern France:












Happy (windowbox) gardening to all of you Parisians!

Hi La Mom! I'm a young teen in NYC, and I love your blog. Check mine out if you have time, I'd love to hear your feedback. I'm going to live in Europe for the next few years, so reading your blog has given me a taste of what life is going to be like there (cause I know it's different from vacationing there).
Thanks so much!!!

I have the Paris weather on my iPhone and was looking at it last night thinking, "Wow it's still rather chilly there!" In all my trips, I have never had the pleasure of seeing everything in full bloom (or even not needing a heavy coat) as I tend to visit in the cooler, less expensive months!

The French sure do know how to do flowers! I guess I left Paris a week too early too see them all like that.

I keep coming back to your blog! I love visiting Paris, but as a new mother I won't be there anytime soon. Your blog helps to ease my Paris withdrawal symptoms. What is it like in Dordogne?

Your comment about the weather makes me think of my trip to Paris over spring break when I was in High School. My mom and I kept singing "April in Paris" and laughing about it because we were freezing our buns off in the rain!

Hi La Mom! I've never commented, but I love your blog and read it rather religiously. Somehow, though I have no idea what you look like, your descriptions of your own style have left enough of an impression on me that when I spotted these shoes, your chic-Parisian-mother vibe was the first thing that popped into my head! You can even customize a pair for a little extra $! Enjoy :)
