Happy Father’s Day! Bonne Fête des Pères!



Although Mother’s Day never falls on the same day in the States and France, Father’s Day is always celebrated on the same Sunday in my two favorite countries on earth.

When I was preparing my homage to the fathers of this world, I searched my blog for the posts I wrote for this special day. I don’t like to repeat myself too much, and yet I hope that you will forgive me.

My emotions and thoughts are still the same on this 2015 Father’s Day as they were last year.

To the fathers and pères, to the daddies and papas out there:

Happy Father’s Day! Bonne Fête des Pères!

Enjoy your special day and happy summer too!







  1. And a good day to you and yours, too!

  3. Feelings linger. Happy Father’s Day to the fathers in your family.

  4. It is the same here, Mother’s Day in March whereas it is in May in France, but Father’s Day was today.

  5. Behind the Story says:

    Happy Father’s Day, Evelyne, to your husband. The piece you wrote last year about your father was beautiful and heartfelt. My dad, too, was a man of few words, and he also took us camping when we were young. Later he took us boating. Though our fathers are no longer with us, we still love them and are grateful for all they did for us.

  7. So glad to see the two countries collide for this special holiday. (Father’s Day sounds so much more elegant in French, though.)
