Bonjour! I’m Laura.
One weekend in Paris really can change your life, or at least it changed mine. When studying abroad in London, I went to Paris for a few days. I immediately called home afterward and asked my parents if I could stay in school for another year to add a French major because I fell for the language, people and culture. The following summer, I worked in the South of France, which deepened my appreciation of the country.
Now every time I visit France, I fall in love all over again. From soft chatter in a café, to the visual feast in a bakery, to busy sidewalks where you feel shoulder-to-shoulder with daily French life. I try to imprint every last bit of these experiences into my memory — and I want to share them with you.
La Vie Moderne brings a piece of France into your life. Even at home, elements of a modern French lifestyle can give you the feeling you’re in France everyday. With each of my travels, I learn new little secrets of l’art de vivre (the art of living) to share on my blog [link to blog]. There you’ll find tips and stories about a simple floral arrangement, a cherished daily routine or a newly discovered artisan. Each post represents my love of France and the lifestyle found there.
Thank you for joining me in bringing these beautiful moments into our daily lives.
