I think I was born in the wrong era.
I am meant to live in the 19th century. In England. Born into an aristocratic family that is independently wealthy and doesn’t need to marry off its daughters to save them from becoming spinster governesses.
Not that I would have to worry about that anyway because I am “tolerable enough, I suppose” and have to reject suitors on a regular basis. Of course, my spitfire temper ensures that I have snared the most devastatingly handsome catch of our time, whose only vice is pride.
Welcome to my blog, where I deal with the real issues in life.
Oh . . . is that’s not concrete enough? Well, I am wife to a Frenchman, mother to three of his children.
I have lived in Asia, Africa, Europe and New York City, and I speak French and some Mandarin.
I battle depression and I am filled with hope.
My blog is divided into four categories, with each topic published on a specific day of the week. I decided to do this, primarily because the faith posts are something new to my blog, and I know my readership is mixed. I wanted people to pick and choose the topics that interested them, and I wanted everyone to feel welcome.
Faith posts are published on Monday.
Food posts are on Tuesday (mainly French recipes).
France posts are published on Thursday – vocabulary, tourism, photos, culture.
And then I keep Friday for my own little Family posts – the five of us and our hunting dog (who is appropriately named “Hunter”).
I welcome advertisers, but there’s a good chance I will reject a “paid guest post.” Feel free to share my photos (except family pictures please), my words and my recipes without my permission, as long as you link back to me. If would like to contact me, I can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com on Facebook, and on Twitter (@aladyinfrance).
Thank you for reading my blog.
