the scent of spring

The city of lights and a bit of dark history

If you’re in North America,  it’s probably starting to get a little chilly out and I can almost bet you’ve been thinking about where you’ll go next. I know the feeling – we’ve been doing lots of it ourselves, though I had to remind Jérémie that Lapland only gets 2.5 hours of sun a day in…

I’ve got a full bookcase about french life, memoirs and cooking and here I am living in France and trying to navigate my what and my why’s in life. Newly unemployed (don’t worry I’m the one that chose to leave) I’m at a point where I’m untethered and I can choose a new path but…
