merry christmas from paris.



So here we are, two days before Christmas. Have you gotten all of your shopping done? I am pleased to announce that I finished last week and am officially enjoying my holiday vacation (as pictured below.)


The best way to share an experience is through taste. This year, I offered slices of my life in Paris to friends and family in New York with bottles of pink crémant that I adorned with Eiffel Tower key chains tied around the neck, tin boxes of Kusmi tea, Parisis Bière de Noël (Paris-brewed Christmas beer!), chocolates and tablettes with crushed roses from my favorite pâtissier Sébastien Gaudard, and a 2004 Haut-Médoc from my local wine shop.

I hope my family and friends enjoy a little bit of Paris in New York, while we enjoy the opposite effect and sip on California wine, eat Stove-Top cranberry stuffing, and stream the Long Island Christmas station here in France.

I'm sending you all an early Joyeux Noël from Paris. To kick off the festivities, I give you my homemade compilation of my favorite holiday songs, starting off with my beloved "Dominick the Donkey".

Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas!!!
