I hope you are having a lovely Thanksgiving! I must say, one of the hardest things about living in Paris is the fact that I miss both Canadian and American Thanksgiving! This year, I decided to invite a few expats over and have our own little Thanksgiving feast a la francaise. It was harder than expected to round up some of the Thanksgiving staples (pumpkin and cranberry sauce to be specific!) but with a little bit of effort, I have everything I need to pull together one hell of a dinner! Unfortunately, teeny tiny Parisian kitchens prevent me from roasting a full turkey, but turkey is still on the menu! After a full day of preparation, the table is set, my guests are en route and my fingers are crossed that tonight will go off without a hitch!
I have a brief moment of down time while everything is in the oven, so I wanted to take a moment to wish you both a happy and safe holiday. Can you believe the year has passed so quickly? It feels like only yesterday I was enjoying Thanksgiving in New Orleans with ma famille! How time flies!
Anyway, as I was baking my pumpkin pie this afternoon, I started thinking about the things I am thankful for. The list is long but here's what nabbed the top spots...
My awesome family
My wonderful boyfriend
My incredible friends
My home in Paris
And last but not least...
My darling Eternal Interns!
Happy Thanksgiving, my darling girls!
Bisous xx Ophelia
