I’ve been so surprised and touched by all the emails I’ve received
requesting more installments of
my uh hmmm, love story! 

(Click here to read how we met )

Okay I admit this image is a bit (alot) over the top!
What can I say, I am a hopeless romantic

FotoFlexer M&M.
We are extremely private,
as you can see from the strategically blacked-out  photo above!!
All the special details are…well, a little too special to blab about.
Does that make any sense?

So rather than bore everyone with a play by play account of our
sweet fairytale
(well it is to me anyway),
I’ll share a “snippet” every so often.

Not necessarily about us,
but things to do and see in the City of Love...uh, City of Lights
for those who are in love
or will be in love one day!
Or if you just love French style

Obviously that is what I already do here on this blog,
but I hope to make one small change.
I’d like to begin posting video snippets so you can see la joie de vie for yourself

 Not sure if it will work and maybe it won’t.
I’m not exactly a film maker.

What do you think?
Do you like the idea of “video snippets”?

Don't forget about the giveaway next week!

Oh Mimi, what a fantastic idea! It will only add to the loveliness, grandeur and timeless beauty that is Bonjour Romance.
I can hardly wait and I do understand about keeping the lovely details of your love story to yourself..are you sure you do not want to share more? :-)
Just kidding.
Have a lovely rest of the day my friend, cheers!

Eve said...

Hi Mimi,
this is a great idea. I also plan to publish some little tours around Franconia and upload it to youtube. But Paris is of course way more romantic and I would love to see it through your eyes :-)
Including all the sweets !!!

Have a sunny weekend !
