Welcome to French Bliss Me. I hope you’ll follow along as I share everything from my latest fashion and beauty finds, to anecdotes about our Franco-American life, to inspired musings on a plethora of topics.
When it came time to name this space, I didn’t take the task lightly. I filled pages upon pages of my notebook with potential names, never really finding the one. Then, in classic Antoine-fashion, my clever husband came up with the perfect name after a mere twenty minutes of contemplation. A play off of the popular term “French kiss,” French Bliss Me seemed to fit perfectly. As an American building my life in France, I’ve had so many moments where I’ve adored this life and I’ve felt so blessed to live here. In the interest of full disclosure, however, I must admit that for every moment of sheer bliss, there’s been a moment of sheer frustration, even resentment.
To say that my attitude towards our unconventional life has evolved throughout the years would be an understatement. My initial years were what I’d call the ignorance is bliss stage.
