I continue to be amazed by the devotion of the fine folks who have taken up the #LiveLikeJulia challenge.  Thank you for sharing your insights with all of us.  I am grateful beyond words.

This Week:

Gigi Little, following a week’s pledge “to [try my damnedest to] never apologize,”  improvises Coq Au Vin (with hilarious step-by-step instructions) and revels in an anniversary celebration with Stephen,  her very own Paul Child.

Sister Blogger Erin Clune recently delved into Rule #5 All you Need is a Kitchen and a Bedroom while traveling through Europe. With tongue-in-cheek humor, she suggests after two weeks of French food perhaps the rule should be “All You Need is a Brasserie and a Digestif?

“Where is my what-the-hell attitude?” That’s the question Laura Lavelle (aka Foodie Laura) asked herself as she obeys her whims (Rule #4) and prepares to open her own pop-up restaurant.

“To really Live Like Julia will take more than a week or a month of dedication, and I am willing to Live Like Julia for the rest of my life.” ~ Christy Majors summarizes how she plans to achieve culinary fulfillment.

Eufemia Fantetti (living Rule #3 – Learn to Be Amused) writes poignantly of her continuing quest to remain amused while grappling with the past.

Following her return from Italy, Sonya Lea (Rule #1 – Live with Abandon)  shares, “If I’m going to be all in stateside, I’m going to have to turn off the distractions. Not the fun ones, like trying a new recipe or making a new story or writing a note to a friend. But the ones that keep me from being here.”
