The last feast

The night before we left, Evan scored two fresh-from-the-oven baguettes, and we scarfed them like they were our last meal (ever, not just in Paris). We paired the hot bread with our favorite salted butter and I honestly don't think I've had better food.

What a fond memory.

We're unpacked and unwinding with my parents in Lancaster, and I hope to share some more photos when I am less jet-lagged.

Welcome home!

Yum. Fresh from the over baguettes and butter. Can it get any better? I think not.

That sounds divine. Should I say ‘welcome back’? I am about 50 minutes east of you in West Chester. Although I love where I live, I am not quite sure how I would feel about going from Paris back to this area! A different kind of love, I guess than the way one loves Paris. Good luck with everything. I think I came here via Simple Lovely. I am enjoying your blog.

Tahda –

We are trying to work out the details. My husband (he’s a biz development consultant) is working out the details for a project (here in the US) and we don’t know how long the apartment maintenance will take.

For now we are going with the flow and enjoying the country air. :)

wow, welcome back to the states. I’m assuming you will be going back to Paris after the few weeks is up? or is it still TBD?

I wish I could say I'd had Parisian baguettes:/

I hope your trip home was lovely and I wish you much well-adjusting and quietness now that you are back in PA. I suppose nowhere is Paris but, Paris….still—I bet you are glad to be home<3

French butter. Nothing better, in my book. Especially when paired with a hot baguette.

So glad you’re back, Nichole! I’ll be going back to my hometown tomorrow, but just for a 3-day visit. I definitely appreciate it now more than as a 22-year-old college grad.
