i'm thinking of starting another blog, because i've loved sharing my travel experiences here in Europe so much...but will there be enough to write about in Connecticut?
|so much love|
anyways, thank you to everyone who has read this the past year! i cannot, seriously cannot, believe that it's over. the whole year went by faster than i could have imagined!
i started typing this up back in march, so let's get sentimental:
- Stuff I can bring back with me to USA: un carafe d’eau, wine jug/pichet/carafe on table, tables set nicely, cheese course at end of meal, apertif (vermouth, champagne, fino, sherry and any still, dry, light white wine), amuse-bouche (crackers, cheese, pâté or olives), digestif/café, the word “truc”, saying bon appétit before eating a meal, never leaving the house in sweats or dressed sloppily unless i'm going to the gym, walking a lot, shopping every couple days & not doing one huge trip, eating fresh produce, frequenting the farmers market...
|colors in nice|
- Things I wish I could take back to the USA: chèvre, macarons, quality red wine for only a few euros, regional foods & wines, daily fresh food market only a 5 minute walk away, sunny winters, daily exposure to the French language, the French train system (even with it’s occasional irregularities), 2 hour lunches, faire la bise (the cheek-kissing greeting), old French men playing pétanque in les jardins, all my friends, & the constant challenge of listening to and speaking French...
