To celebrate Jennifer Niven's Becoming Clementine making her debut, her blog is taking a French state of mind. Ah, France! Home of Edith Piaf, french bread, croissants, french braids, viva la France!
Oddly when I think of France, I think of the Happy Orphelines. You might be scratching your head, thinking what are the happy orphelines? Merde! You never heard of them! Tsk, tsk!
The happy orphelines woudn’t hang out with Annie or Harry Potter. Maybe they would, but they wouldn’t get why they were so sad about having no parents. They were happy about being orphans (orphelines is what they are called in France) They were well fed, well dressed, and went on field trips around Paris; touring the sewers (yes, this was an actual field trip, hard to believe) walking around Paris, having a lovely time.
