Norman Parkinson, photo shoot for Vogue at the former Paris home of...actually I will let you guess, if you need a clue look at the photographs on the piano.
It's two years ago today, that I tentatively put finger to keyboard and wrote my first blog post, after I pressed the publish button, I thought to myself, well it's out there now. I kept checking my post to see if there were any comments, but there were none, I considered deleting it and forgetting about the whole thing but something made made me persevere. My blog did not have a raison d'etre in fact it still does not know what it wants to be when it grows up, let's just say French Sampler is continually evolving.
The thing that amazes me the most about the blogging process are the friendships and support I have made and received from fellow bloggers, readers, commenter's and people who follow this blog, you guys are wonderful. Your blogs continue to; inspire, educate, make me think, make me laugh and sometimes cry, have my jaw dropping by the sheer beauty of your content, poignancy of your words and your boundless creativity, and yes, all too often you make me want to part with my money! You are an incredible bunch of talented individuals, I raise my glass and I make a toast to you, cheers.
