…et Bonne Année!

Fringe Benefits

I wish you all the very best for 2004 : health, happiness, love, friendship, prosperity and above all, excellent chocolate.

We hosted a little “réveillon” party yesterday night, for which Stéphane and I cooked up a pocket-sized storm. Recipes and stories are on the way!

And to mark the new year, I have had my hair cut with a fringe! It wasn’t planned at all, it just sort of happened. I looked at the girl getting her hair cut before me, she was pretty, she had a fringe (hers was long, below the brows), the thought popped into my head, it sounded nice, and I asked my (very friendly) hairdresser Michaël : “tiens, et une frange, ce serait une bonne idée?“. He said yes, he said cute, he said short, I said go!

    Just found your site and I think you are great.
    I live in the states, Texas to be exact, and recently went to Paris (for the first time ever)!
    I had a great time and the food was wonderful!
    Glad I found your site – Happy New Year!

  • Wena – ooops! Sometimes hairdressers have the strangest understanding of “just trimming the ends”!

    Annette – so glad you like it, stick around, make yourself comfortable! Would you like a little cookie? :) Happy new year!
