Happy 2nd Anniversary to me! We have a winner!!

Today I'm celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of my Normandy Life blog, with Mr B & Mr Ben and 43 friends who all said nice things about my Alphabe-Thursday M post. picked out #15 as the winner! "Happy Mrs C". who left this comment:
I would love to go to Paris and just wander and watch people. I make lemon meringue pies with meringue that high! it is really pretty easy, just use 4 egg whites a little sugar.
So now we know how to recreate the historic meringue that Mr B & I enjoyed so much in the Marais tearoom.
Mrs C please email me your address so that I can get your French cadeau on it's way to Lookout Mountain.
The past two years have flown by as I shared my ramblings of la vie quotidienne (daily life) in rural Normandy; learned new computer and photography skills; how to create mosaics; learned to love my slow cooker once again; gained the confidence to create a second blog, this time for the Quimper Club International and even how to tablescape!

To all the wonderful friends that I have made along the way a great big thank you from the bottom of my heart for your comments, emails, humour, camaraderie and support.
Despite most of you living thousands of miles away you are in my life, and it is a life all the richer for it!
au revoir from Normandie.


  1. Maggie, nice photos of Mr. B and Ben! I like your table setting very much too!

    Have a great week end.

    We've rain today here in South Carolina and we are pleased, as we need it.

    Congratulations to your winner!

  2. Happy Blog-Aversarie to you Ms. Maggie!!

    I have been one happy gal reading your blog and daydreaming about all the lovely places you share with us via your new-found photography skills! All those skills you have perfected were there all the time--it just took the magic of the keyboard to bring them out in you, that's all!! Computers CAN be a wonderful thing.

    Congrats to Ms. C on her win. I know she is another happy gal too!

    Have a great weekend!
