|The Eiffel Tower on July 11, 2007.|
I’ve got a thing about France.
My name’s of French origin, I collect Eiffel towers and fleur de lis, and I celebrated my 50th birthday in Paris. I grew up in St. Louis, a city known for its French heritage; it even has a fleur de lis on its flag. One of my favorite cities in the world is New Orleans. I love escargot, crepes and crème brûlée. I adore “The Phantom of the Opera.”
But I’m pretty much 100 percent German. Go figure.
When I was offered the opportunity to write about the French Cultures Festival in San Antonio for The Rivard Report, I jumped at the chance. You can read the article here, and learn about the cool events happening this month all around the city.
And you can get a glimpse of my obsession in these photos taken at my home.
Oui, I have a thing about France.
