The end of the year is always a time for reflection of the past 365 days, as well as a time for planning for the next 365 and beyond! I love this time of year because it is a well blended mélange of memories and projects.

This past year has been an important one in my personal life (Chéri and I became parents!). So I will always remember this year fondly with a happy smile. And oh the pictures I have taken to remember it all!!!!


Nevertheless, there is less time for looking backward when there is a little one crawling, then standing and constantly evolving before our very eyes. So future plans are a conversation constant these days. And I love it. I love the way life just picks up and keeps going.

However, before we dive head first into those plans I would love to share with all of you our best blog posts from the past year! They are fun and diverse, and worth another quick look.

Here they are…


Number 5 : French Classics at Le Tout Petit Bistrot

A fabulous little spot and possibly one of the most charming, adorable, lovely cafés in Paris. And where we brought my Mama Chérie for dinner on her trip here in April. Glad you all liked reading about it too!

Number 4 : Le Dépanneur Bar and Terrace

Glad a trendy So Pi spot got so much attention on my blog, but then I am not surprised! So Pi is so hipster, and hipster is still cool in Paris, even though in Brooklyn it would appear it’s going out of style. Le Dépanneur is such a great summer hangout!

Number 3 : A Love Affair With French Cheese

So glad cheese was a subject on the top 5 list of this past year, because I have really, really indulged in cheese ever since dairy was allowed back in my diet. I do love cheese so….

Number 2 : Our Pictours Paris Baby Moon Photo Shoot

I love that this one came in second! I usually don’t share tons of things from my personal life, but I was so delighted to share these images because they are just stunning, and my friend Lindsey of Pictours Paris made me feel so pretty. (Honestly I was more surprised than anyone at how lovely I look as a pregnant lady…I was expecting 9 months of dreadful cringing in the mirror).

And the NUMBER ONE article for 2015 :

Top Ten Beautiful French Women

Either my readers love top ten lists, or they like reading about beautiful French women… And now I know to do more content of both!
