The thought of going abroad makes my heart leap.
— Charles Sumner


My name is Stephanie Audette. I love breakfast, traveling and all things French: the culture, the language and, bien sûr, the food. 

I started this blog as outlet for my passion, which started at an early age. I was standing in the middle of a crowded Geneva airport when I first heard French. The foreign sounding words fascinated me almost as much as the people speaking them. I didn't realize it at the time, but my family's move to Switzerland changed my life.

Here I am 20 years later and I find myself living abroad once again. This time I'm on my own, working (for a Minnesota company) in Paris. Paris! I'm still pinching myself. Follow along as I navigate the ups and downs of living la vie française.
