On July 14th, 1789, crowds stormed the Bastille fortress-prison in Paris to release prisoners who had been unfairly locked away by Louis XVI. In honor of France’s La Fête Nationale (Bastille Day), here are a few of my favorite French things:
French Macaroons, they make me weak at the knees
French cheese, another guilty pleasure. I could make an entire dinner out of just French cheese!
Hermes scarves. What's not to love. They make any outfit look great, they come in gorgeous boxes, and can you wear them a thousand different ways. Voila, as the French girls say, so chic.
After a sleepless night and a day full of cleaning and packing for Charleston, I think I'll make a dinner of wine (for the husband), cheese, fruit, olives, nuts, and good bread for dinner in honor of Bastille Day. (and a great excuse not to cook!)
Happy Bastille Day!
