Three Years Already?

Something happened over the dark, stormy, blackout weekend.
Chez Loulou
turned three.

Three years. Already? My how they have flown!

I would like to raise a glass of my favorite Minervois red (too chilly for rosé in January!) and toast all of you who read and support this blog. I love writing it and appreciate the wonderful comments I get from all over the world. It has allowed me to meet some really cool people, both in person and on the web.

The best part - being part of a fantastic, creative community of chefs, writers, expats, photographers, foodies and overall passionate, kind people.

Merci et santé!

I'm opening a virtual bottle of Barolo in your honour, which I'll share with spacedlaw if she is willing. We'll toast you together.

Three years... a long and wonderful journey, I'm sure. No wine tonight, but I did try a new cheese - Stravecchio. A lovely alternative to Parmiggiano or Pecorino. Here's to you and your blog!

I've been thinking about France throughout the storm. I knew she's nto going to blow away, but I still worry. Congrats, LouLou!

Happy happy! I'll raise a glass of Touraine gamay or cabernet in your honor today.

I still drink rosé nearly every day as my apéro before lunch, even in January!

Happy anniversary! I'll raise a glass of California red in honor of "Chez Loulou" and add a toast to the other bloggers that have me connected back with France. Cheers!
A votre sante!

happy anniversary. Hopefully by the 4th one, vous serez citoyenne LouLou :-)

Loulou said...

Wow is right. How can three years have passed so quickly?
Thanks for celebrating with me!

Merci! Yes, we have electricity and are warm and happy.

Thank you!

I'm glad you commented so I can say hello.
Thank you for such a kind comment. It was very exciting to be nominated alongside such amazing blogs!

Thank you!

Ah...Barolo. There's something I haven't had in a while. Can I have a glass too? :)

Yes! Three more! We're about to celebrate 6 years in France and that blows my mind.

Cheese is just fine to toast with in my opinion! :) Stravecchio sounds good. Hope you will join in la Fête du Fromage in March.

We're still here and so is la France. She would like you to come back and visit soon.
Thanks for the congratulations Mimi!

I thought of you when I wrote that because I know you enjoy your rosé no matter what time of year. :)
One day I'll have to try some of the Loire valley wines. They aren't as easy to come by down here so I guess we'll just have to make a trip north for a grand tasting!

Merci! Thanks for reading Chez Loulou and for your wonderful emails.

Oh, that would be something to celebrate! Here's hoping...

Loulou - virtual Barolo wafting your way even as I write this.
