Now as a resident of the city of lights she shares her perspective and her Passion for Paris! ======================================= I am not sure exactly when the idea of living in Paris first … [Read more...]

French Friday – A Passion for Paris with Anne Ditmeyer

I discovered Anne Ditmeyer, an American designer / editor and blogger behind Prêt à Voyager (translation: ready to travel) via Lindsey of Lost in Cheeseland when Lindsey was featured on Anne's series Boarding Pass.  It is a series about other travelers and you know how fond I am of finding new people in the blogosphere.  I enjoy her blog immensely including her series French Lessons as well as her … [Read more...]

A Passion for Paris with Sarah Towle

I first discovered Sarah Towle via Parisian blogging bud, Karin Bates, of An Alien Parisienne. If you know anything about Karin, you'll understand that while she is not a frequent blogger, when she does publish a post it is always about something or someone who is fascinating and you can be guaranteed the post will be long.   Which is exactly the case with the post Karin wrote about Sarah and the … [Read more...]

French Friday – A Passion for Paris with Daisy de Plume

A Passion for Paris returned last week with a lovely post from La Mom Paris. I am so excited to bring you the story from another Parisian expat, Daisy de Plume who's the founder and creative director of THATLou, which runs themed Treasure Hunts at the Louvre (among other museums). We met through a mutual friend so I have yet to experience her titillating museum event, but I am looking forward to … [Read more...]

French Friday – A Passion for Paris with La Mom

It's back! A Passion for Paris, my series where I let expats and francophiles express, in their own way, the reasons why they love the city of light (as much as I do!).  I like to host the series at least once a year because there are so many great bloggers out there and I never get tired of hearing the many different ways in which Paris is embraced. I am really quite giddy about Stephanie of … [Read more...]

French Friday – A Passion for Paris with Fleurishing

I met Susan of Fleurishing through Lindsey of Lost in Cheeseland. She is just as enamored with Paris as I am.  Since she lives in Philly and I live in the San Francisco, we are both in the same boat...we worship from afar! I had the pleasure of recently being the subject of a Proust interview on her blog and I asked her to return the favor by posting about her Passion for Paris. Here is Susan's … [Read more...]

French Friday – A Passion for Paris with Je Ne Sais Quoi

Strangely enough, my old blogging pal Julie of Writing Roads is how I got connected to Shannon of Je Ne Sais Quoi. They were talking on Twitter and I clicked over and discovered her.I love her quirky sense of humor and metro stories and I love her Friday Features when she gets a whole bunch of francophile bloggers to respond to topic.  It is a virtual party and a lot of fun. When we met at the … [Read more...]

French Friday – A Passion for Paris with Pink Frenchie

I have been reading Pink Frenchie's blog for quite a while and absolutely adore the photography and style she presents in Les Petits Plaisirs, it reminds me of Paris of days ago.  She writes about women, about France, about Anthony Bourdain (yes!) and I always come away feeling good.  In this edition of A Passion for Paris she tells us about Paris through the five senses, definitely a unique … [Read more...]

Paris isn't always love at first sight, but she certainly can grow … [Read more...]

Welcome back to my current French Friday guest-post series!  This week we have another Parisian blogger, Amy Reverdy of “C’est la me . . .” Amy and Mr. Misadventures became fast friends at the Paris Bloggers meet-up last October.  I am not surprised as Amy and I had already exchanged a lot of emails marveling in our similar stories!
