Thanksgiving is on Thursday! Are you ready yet? We haven’t even gotten our turkey, but we’re going to order it today at the boucherie downtown.

About a week ago, I got it in my head that I was going to get out of the house for the whole day. I know, it was a little presumptuous, but I was determined to get out. So my mom and I decided to go out for the day, for shopping and lunch, with

It’s already November 10th, and Thanksgiving is quickly approaching so it’s obviously time for me to start sharing some Thanksgiving recipes. Even though we won’t be celebrating a traditional American Thanksgiving here in France, we will definitely be attempting it. It’s Ellie’s first Thanksgiving, so obviously we wouldn’t want her to miss out – even if
