French national, American citizen, two cultures.

I was born in France to a French-American mother and French born father. I was two when I moved to the States. As I grew up, even though I was French, we blended our French culture with the American one. Though French is prominent, it isn't completely French. We do have three big meals (though, true to the American culture, we're learning, slow but sure, to have smaller meals, more often)... we'll eat dinner late... anywhere between 6.30 and 9. Wine is to us as water or milk or tea to an American household. Franglish is the language of our household, a blend of classy French and a little harsher English (sorry, kind of true.). However, it's a classic blend. We're considered French here, American in France (however, my dad is French here, French in France.). But, who cares? Like I said, I am a French national, American citizen and I have two cultures, blended together to make one.
