Paris in July


It has been a while since I have participated in anything bloggy other than the Weekly Sunday/Monday meme I do; four years, to be exact, since the birth of my son. I never knew if I would be able to commit! This Paris in July event, hosted by Thyme for Tea, will be my first in four years, and I am very excited! I felt like this would be a fun, very doable type of experience for me, and I am looking forward to it.

I am planning on reading a few books set in France, watching a French movie, and without a doubt, watching the Tour de France, as we do every year. We are big fans, and this year promises to be an exciting one, with some of the big names out of the race already before it has even begun. I also hope to do a mini Bastille Day celebration and eat a little French food too!

A little bit about the event from Thyme for Tea:

Paris in July is a French themed blogging experience running from the 1st – 31st July this year.

The aim of the month is to celebrate our French experiences through actual visits, or through reading, watching, listening, observing, cooking and eating all things French!  Here’s a link to some of my previous reviews.

There will be 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

  2. Yay for everything French! 🙂 I’m loving that the women’s World Cup is being played in France this year- just seeing the venues and everything is nice.

    French bread is the best!

    1. French bread really is the best! I agree!!

      I am not watching the Women’s World Cup but I am sure the venues and scenery are gorgeous! That is part of the fun for me of watching the Tour de France, all the little villages filled with people lining the streets cheering the riders on. That would be so fun. 🙂


    1. I am so excited! I went to a French bistro that just opened in my city yesterday all excited and was going to blog about it, but the experience was rather disappointing! I am hoping it is just that they need to work their kinks out, so I will give them another go. The food and coffee were actually outstanding!
