eggnog season

Why hello, December! With Thanksgiving behind us, it is officially acceptable to listen to Christmas music... all day, every day ;). To celebrate that fact, bask in holiday cheer, and wish Edna and friends the absolute best as they embark on their next adventures, Kerri hosted a potluck brunch. On the menu: coffee, croissants, eggnog, Irish potato pancakes, bacon, mushroom quiche, apple-cinnamon pancakes, éclairs, macarons, a caramel-apple tart, and kugelhopf (a blast from my Alsacian past). Yesterday was lovely.
And all because I met this lady 16 months ago! It's amazing how many real life gifts this blogging pastime of mine has provided. Yes, the gratitude continues; especially so because, following brunch, I unexpectedly walked into a wine tasting at my local caviste. I will soak up every bit of Parisian pleasure in this next week. On the agenda: coffee with thesis advisor, afternoons at the museum, dinner with old coworkers, drinks with girlfriends (also connected by blogs), and other last-of-2013-on-French-soil responsibilities.

  1. Oh, you met pretty Devon! I did bike tours with her in the summer - Paris is a small place! And I'm pretty sure Kerri actually did one of my tours! This looks like such a nice afternoon spent. I'm glad you got to see Edna while she's here. See you Thurs! xx
