Sometimes, you just have to quit your job, put your worldly possessions into storage, and move to France for a while to teach English, be broke, and live by the Mediterranean. Or maybe that's just me. This is where I'll document my possibly hilarious, probably (at times) frustrating, but definitely exciting attempt at living life à la française for the first time ever.

One week to go!
To commemorate my "d minus one week" mark (!), here are some fun pictures for you!
My best friends Amy and Shannon are pretty much amazing,
and gave me a little lakehouse sleepover shindig complete with Bon Voyage décor and fondue!
It was a great time spent with some of my closest friends,
and it reminded me how truly blessed I am.
J'adore ça! Also, I so regret not taking a picture of the
whole fondue setup. It was beautiful (and delicious!) and
perfect for a French-themed going-away party.
This beautiful journal is a gift from Spanish Aaron.
It's to serve as a reminder to take in and reflect upon my experiences.
(Let's hope I write in it! I'm not always great about that.)
Thanks to Half Price Books, I'm currently reading this memoir
by Harriet Welty Rochefort, a woman from Iowa who married a Frenchman
and has lived in Paris for 20 years. It's got some interesting perspectives
on cultural differences, and it's turning out to be a super quick read!
Some baby dog is suspicious.
And apparently wants to join me.
