The Ella P.V.




J'en ai marre! I'm leaving this urban jungle behind, for sun, fresh air, love and light in the LPV! That's right love and light. Today I'm in The LPV as in Le Petit Village, as in Sara Louise's Le Petit Village! Blogosphorically speaking that is....

The lovely, witty, super bloggeuse, Sara Louise invited me to whip up a little something for her readers while she takes a mini blogcation. Knowing that she has a large and very loyal readership, I was nervous about encroaching on that and submitting something that they would enjoy. My stories aren't exactly short, and can be a little bit on the rough side, so for the new reader, I can come across a little strong. I get it.

Wanting something totally French, totes me, and to honor my three year anniversary in France, I pulled out my 2009 journal and flipped through some of the pages of my first week adventures in Paris. Hashtag Oh là là. What better way to kick off this week's anniversary celebration than with a flashback guest post on one of my favorite Francoblogs! Merci beaucoup Sara Louise! I'm honored to grace the pages of The LPV! What what.

So now, I invite you all to come with me back in time where once upon a time, a girl walks into Alliance Française Paris....

    1. Thanks Shannon!! 3 years ago feels like a lifetime. Don't you feel that way when you think of your first few weeks in France? So much has happened for us all since our first arrivals. Our evolutions are fascinating.

    2. When I think back to my first month or so in France, I would have thought the idea of still being in France was crazy! I thought about even packing up and going back home. Yet somehow... I fell in love with France (and more than that, small town France!), and here I am!
