The Lou Messugo Blog - life in the south of France from a British/Australian TCK's perspective, bringing you French culture, travel on the Côte d'Azur and beyond, expat issues and a little bit of je ne sais quoi all mixed up with a hefty dose of photography.
Welcome to the 17th All About France monthly link up all about France! If you're a blogger and this is your first time here you might want to find out more here. If you're a reader who loves France then you're in the right place; you'll find plenty more here. Regulars, you know what to do.
Thank you to all who joined in last month, I really enjoy reading all the different and interesting things everyone chooses to share though please bear with me when I take a few days (even a couple of weeks) to get through them all to comment, there are a lot of posts to read while running a business and taking care of the kids. And please don't forget that I like comments too! As always it's hard to single out just a few of the wonderful posts linked up (this time it really was hard, honestly I loved so many) but here are 4 that really stood out for me. Discovering the Debaa by Curtis Bausse, An American Dream by Our French Oasis, Moms in the Musée d'Orsay by Imaginibus and Paris: Enchanted by Amélie's Montmartre by Groove is in the Heart. If you haven't already read these posts I highly recommend you do, you won't be disappointed.
This month I'm linking up my most recent post and one of my very first ever, from 4 years ago, because I like it! I'd like it to get some more exposure as I didn't have a clue back then what to do with a published post. I hope you enjoy it.
And now here are the dreaded rules! (Unfortunately there are still people who just dump their links and don't participate. Please don't!)
This is a link-up or linky - however you want to call it - so please SHARE THE LOVE. View, comment on and share fellow bloggers links, at least 2 (as well as mine) but ideally as many as possible, don't just link-dump (persistent offenders will be removed). Remember to come back a few days later to see who linked up after you.
Old and new posts are welcome but please limit them to 2 per link-up. Save the rest for future months.
Please add the All About France badge to the side bar of your blog and/or the post itself and a link back to either this page or the link-up. This helps to promote everyone's hard work. Posts without these will be removed.
Use the hashtag #AllAboutFrance when sharing on social media. I will retweet tweets with the hashtag or if you mention me (@FibiTee).
If you aren't already please follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ & Instagram as a courtesy (not obligatory obvs!) I am very appreciative and happy to follow back! It also helps me to remind you when the next one is coming up.

Don't forget you can join the Pinterest board and pin your posts for extra exposure. Full details of the link-up can be found here. As always it'll be open for a whole week and the next one will be in a month's time on Thursday 7th July, by which time my "baby" will have finished primary school (like, forever, not just for the summer holidays, eek!)
Another great link up. I'm just back to add my comments now as we're busy holiday-making in France now the weather has improved! Is it possible to add me to a reminder list please Phoebe? I'm terribly forgetful, but I would love to join in again next time! Thank you.
Of course Cal, I try to tweet/email everyone who links up but some slip through the net, I guess I forgot you, sorry. I've added you to the list now.
