My old school in my old city,
The Language Exchange in Portland
just celebrated 20 years of the weekly French Breakfast,
Le petit déjeuner (no English allowed!).
I was so sad that I couldn't be there for the party,
but I sent a birthday card.
My first petit déjeuner, 15 years ago,
marked the debut, the beginning,
of a new era in my adult life:
My French studies.
Today, they are still such an important part of my life!
Merci, Valérie, et Bon anniversaire!
