Hello everyone! I don’t know about you, but I am definitely ready for spring! Here in California it has been so, so rainy this year and unseasonably cold! I’m sure not cold to any Easterners, but cold for us, haha! 😉 All the grey days have made me even more ready for spring than usual, so I’ve been bringing in lots of flowers to cheer up the house. I find flowers brighten up even the darkest days, and make the house feel much more cheerful – even in the dead of winter!
Hey everyone~ welcome to another French Country Fridays! Before we get into the post, I have to apologize. I don’t think I’ve ever gone a whole week without posting – until this week! And what’s funny is I’ve had more hectic weeks for sure. I’ve just been crazily organizing and purging and somehow, the week got away from me. I’ve been quite taken with the whole “tidying” craze, ie; “Marie Kondo-ing”!! What can I say? I’m completely hooked!
Hello friends and welcome to a very special French Country Fridays! I’m sure you’re wondering why I’m calling it “special” and that’s because this week is our 52nd FCF! Yes, it has been exactly a year since we began our little weekly French-inspired group posts!
I’m not one to do a lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day, but I do like to do a little something as a nod to the holiday.When the kids were younger, I did much more in terms of decor and gifts. However, this year I wanted to keep it simple while still making it feel festive!
French Country Fridays make me so happy! Not just because I love doing this post with my talented friends, but also because it means that it’s Friday and the weekend is almost here! Is there anything better than that feeling on Friday night when the work week is over and the whole weekend is spread out ahead of you?! Can you tell I’ve had a bit of a crazy week?! Really ready for our pizza and movie night (and maybe a second glass of wine 😉 )
I don’t know about all of you, but my husband and I haven’t dined out on Valentine’s Day in probably fifteen years! That night it is overly crowded, and the food is always expensive. Most years we do a dinner out on another night and a family dinner on Valentine’s Day itself. But this year, it falls on a Thursday which happens to be a night my teens will be out at a weekly function. So I thought, why not do a special dinner at home in our own dining room? Candles, good food, uninterrupted conversation and no crowds or over-priced food – sign me up!
