  1. Merci beaucoup for the award, Emma! I have some dear blogging friends among the other recipients on your list, and I look forward to making the acquaintance of the other blogs and bloggers you’ve selected that are as yet unknown to me. Thanks and à bientôt!


  2. Congrats on your award! I didn’t know you published a book. That’s awesome! I wish I had your resolve and didn’t own a TV. I would be able to reach my reading goal in less than 50 years. Thanks for your kind words. I’m looking forward to following your blog in the new year! Have a wonderful weekend!


  3. What a lovely surprise to be mentioned here on your beautiful blog. Also, it’s fun to learn more things about you. I have lived in France for two summers in my life, and I took many years of French. At one time, I could speak it fairly fluently, and read it. My greatest source of pride is not being recognized as an American when I asked directions of a French policeman. I bought my wedding dress in Paris, but sadly, am not quite as small as most French women. (On the other hand, I’m not as big as most American women. 😉 Anyway, thank you for the honor. It’s good to blog with you and so many of the others mentioned in this post.
