If ever there was a reason to eat a crepe, today is it.
It's La Chandeleur! Today the French eat crepes, and Anne over at Pret a Voyager does a much better job of explaining why than I could (see here). My relationship with this holiday is no deeper than an excuse to eat crepes. Superficial, I know.
We're not back in Paris until February 23, so I'll be getting my crepe fix here in the states - but I'm getting that fix nonetheless.
BTW, I have an alarming number of photos of Evan buying crepes, and and equally alarming number of me eating or holding crepes. See the pattern?: Evan buys. I wait. I get the first one.
He's a good guy.

He buys, you eat. Sounds fair.

Haha, this is awesome! I could only dream of having crepes in Paris! Someday soon. I was all set to make crepes today then realized we're out of eggs! Blast.

I'm drooling! Crepes are my weekeness. So sweet how you get to eat the first one :)

Gorgeous photos, as always!

Can you believe I've never had crepes? Lame, right? Maybe I'll wait for Paris. BTW, Evan looks like a movie star in that pic! xoxo
