When Julia was very little, she had a splendid meal of sole meunière. And that was that. Julia fell in love with French food. She loved to eat French food. And she especially loved to cook it.

  1. What an adorable book cover! Your teaser got me thinking though, I don't think I've ever tried any actual "french cuisine." French fries don't count, and my French Vanilla creamer doesn't count either, hmmm lol!

Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.
