Happy 100th Birthday to Julia Child!
Today would have been Julia Child's 100th birthday, and August 15th also marks my wedding anniversary with my husband. The year we got married was also the year that Julie & Julia was released in theaters, and aside from memories of watching Julia cooking on PBS, I didn't know much about her until the film.
Afterward, I read the book the film is based on, and also read Julia's book My Life in France.
For Halloween that year, it was a given that I would dress up as Julia - with my highest heels on and my copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking in tow.
I was also sure to eat plenty of French bread that day.
And earlier this year, Zack bought me a mortar and pestle, similar to the one Paul Child gave to Julia.
I think what I love most about Julia is her love story and marriage with Paul Child.
"You are the butter to my bread and the breath of my life."
It's a sentiment I share for my husband of three years and love of eight.
