If you have followed me for any amount of time, you know how much I
am obsessed with love Julia Child. She has been an inspiration for years and in the past couple years after watching the movie Julie and Julia, reading My Life in France and just stalking Julia online, naturally, my love affair continues to grow. I literally used her in a presentation a couple weeks ago – the lady started her career/published her first book at the age of 49! She’s AWE-SOME on so many levels.
While I was in San Francisco this past weekend, I saw this children’s book at a boutique on Fillmore street and almost died. Bon Appetit! The Delicious Life of Julia Child by Jessie Hartland. I bought all the copies in the store (there were two) and the next store we went to was a men’s store so while Rick shopped, I sat down and read the book. It’s fascinating and creative and inspiring. And it also made me realize I want to read more children’s books in my life. They are far less complicated, much more fun to read and just simple. I think authors could learn a lot from children’s books. I have since read it two more times and plan on reading it at least 100 more times in the coming months.
It’s a perfect gift for adults and children alike (per point above). Or, if you are obsessed with Julia like I am, it’s a must-buy for your sweet self. OR, today could be your lucky today! Write in a comment telling me why you love Julia Child to win a copy of this delicious book! And feel free to share this post with any Julia lovers in your life to help someone else win! I will pick a winner by Monday. Trust me, you want this book.
Bon Appetit and Good Luck!
