Where did the summer go? I feel like it finally started to feel like summer in Paris, I headed off to the States where it had been more than feeling like summer for months only to return to one more week of summer in Paris and now we’re back to chilly autumn/spring temps and clouds. What gives?
Can you tell that I’m a major summer person? My husband already told me he’s buying me a sunlamp for Christmas this year.
We arrived back to Paris this past Saturday after two wonderful weeks in the Aquitaine region, more specifically Cap Ferret. Friends recommended it to us and we were not disappointed. The days were filled with morning runs, lunch at the Basque tapas bar at the market, afternoons at the beach where I caught up with culture and finally read “Fifty Shades of Grey.” [Don’t judge.] The best time of day, apero time, was white wine and oysters fresh from the bay.
While it was two weeks where my husband actually didn’t look at his work email once, I had moments where I felt detached from The Kale Project, which created a sense of anxiety instead of relief. I think it was not having a real internet connection and as the blogging and social media is the main way I’m building momentum for kale in Paris, this caused more worry than I would have liked. If anything it demonstrates my dedication and devotion to continue with my kale mission.
So many people have reached out to me personally expressing their happiness, thankfulness and mostly their excitement to once again (or some for the first time) taste and cook with kale.
So as we begin another year in Paris [as we all know la rentrée is really the beginning of the year here in France], I say thank you for your support because it really keeps me going through the ups and downs as I figure this out.
