I'm Patricia and this is where I write about my embarrassing cultural mishaps, finding my way around a French beauty counter, and day-to-day life as a Madame.
It all started during my 3rd year of university. I was studying abroad in France at the time and fell in love with a tall, dark, mysterious (couldn't understand what he was saying half the time) Frenchman* who barely spoke English. It was love at first sight and a great motivation to learn French quickly.
The next year I went back home state-side to finish up my bachelor's degree. But I didn't even stick around for my graduation ceremony. As soon as the tests were finished and my grades were in, I hopped on a plane back to France to marry Laurent. Best decision I've ever made.
I'm a make up junkie, an avid reader, always on the hunt for the best skin creams, and a lover of all chocolate patisseries.
Blogging has been a wonderful outlet for me as I've gone through the ups and downs of trying to figure out where I fit in on this side of the ocean. I've met such wonderful people and hope to continue to do so.
*I occasionally refer to him as Monsieur Right on the blog.
Don’t worry. I am fully aware that this falls under the category of corny, obnoxious nicknames. I’m just kind of a corny person.
Don't worry though. I didn't marry him just for his looks. Though I strongly considered it when we first started dating. I remember thinking, "Well, crap. I kinda hope this is the one. Otherwise every guy after this will be totally less hot. Looks-wise it can only go down from here."
Now you know I'm a woman who clearly had her priorities in order at 19. ;)
