  1. Hi Tama!
    Thank you so much for nominating me! Your questions were fun to answer! My post is up, and I picked some great new blogs.
    Take care!

  2. Hi Tama,
    You nominated Darlene, and she nominated me! But what drew me to your blog was the name, and then, to find out that you're living in France! I was born and grew up there. We moved here just before I started sixth grade and I have many great memories (that are fading with age). But it was your picture of Gallette de Rois that brought back so many memories! I remember eating that each year and hoping that I'd get to be the King!
    Anyway, just wanted to say I'm following you now. Come on over to my blog for a stateside visit!
