Lately, I've been thinking about the title of my blog. La belle vie. The beautiful life...If you know me at all, you know that I am obsessed with all things French. I have been enamored with the french language since I was in eighth grade. I visited France in the summer before eleventh grade and fell in love. I fell in love with the history, architecture, the people and culture, and even a boy. Going to France literally changed my life, and helped me to appreciate life so much more. So when I decided to start a blog I asked myself, what do I love the most? My answer? France and life. I always liked the phrase, la belle vie, and even considered getting it as a tattoo (for a very brief period of time)..I'm glad I just chose the blog name instead). So La Belle Vie was born.
I initially started this blog as a way to organize my thoughts and keep track of things I enjoy. It's evolved a lot since my first post, and I hope it continues to change and grow. Sometimes I think my posts are pointless and mindless. Sometimes I feel pressured to post everyday. Sometimes I don't think I'm creative enough. Sometimes I want to put more of myself into my blog, but then I realize my blog is a version of myself. It combines things I enjoy, things that make me happy, and things that inspire me which really echo into my life. If I post an outfit, I usually try to emulate that. If I post a recipe, I'll remind myself to attempt it. I think that is what's so great about blogs. Yea at times, we might want our blog (and lives) to resemble the cool graphic designers, or the hip fashionista's...But at the end of the day, we're all blogging to have fun, and each of our blogs and lives are beautiful and unique in their own ways.
