With Bastille Day on Sunday I think it's the perfect time to raise a glass to the country that brought us the Louis chair, the baguette, the croissant, the little black dress, the Birkin bag, champagne and so many of life's luxuries, both grande and petit. In Seattle, the French population is large enough (or perhaps there's just a lot of us Fracophiles) to make for some trés fun Bastille bashes around town, including one in my own backyard of Madison Valley. I've loved watching the tricolors go up the past few days in preparation.
So pour yourself a glass of vin, eat some macarons, or dab on a little Chanel No. 5 and have a festive weekend! Vive la France!
