It’s no secret—I love living in Paris. But life here isn’t all roses and butterflies. Let’s explore the pros and the cons!
I launched Américaine in France shortly before leaving for Paris. Knowing that I wouldn’t be able to work for a period of time, I figured blogging would be a great hobby to keep me out of trouble when I wasn’t actively battling French administration, but it’s turned into so much more.
As an expat, trying to make a place for myself, it’s easy to get frustrated with daily life, which includes grocery store disappointments. At the end of the day, I love living in Paris, and despite any negativity you might see on this blog, I truly am grateful for this opportunity.
Have I really already been here a month? The past few weeks have been exciting, busy, and exhausting. As this first month in France ends, I’d like to take this time to share a couple of highs and lows from the adventure so far.
