My French Lunch Break

While studying abroad in Cannes I grew to appreciate the importance the French place on their "dejeuner" (lunch). French lunch breaks are commonly 2 hours in order to give people time to truly relax from work, cook and enjoy their most extravagant meal of the day. This blog is dedicated to the idea of taking some extra time in the middle of each day to truly appreciate the gifts of food, nature, friendship, family, art and health.

Truth #1

Truth: I envy my mom's ability to say whatever is on her mind without concern of judgment.  For example, cute boy at church is named Michael so she goes "I love the name Michael. When I was little I used to name all my Ken dolls Michael."

  1. Stumbled across your blog while looking for the french word for lunch break. I have been taking a french conversation class based on french cinema at my local Institute of Art and it is about ready to wrap up. Thought I would try to get some of them to get together for more conversation at "dejeuner" :)Thanks for the ideas!

  2. Awesome! So glad you found the blog helpful--both for definitions and ideas! Definitely keep up the conversation groups, that's the hardest part of the language to maintain. I really wish American industry would adopt the whole "dejeuner" concept--don't you?? :)

    All my best!
