Salut à tous!
I’m sorry I didn’t get around to writing last week, there were lots of tests coming up so life got a little crazy. Plus, I secretly didn’t feel like writing because I’ve been missing the States a little bit this month. Fall is my favorite season and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because I love all of the pre-Halloween festivities, like pumpkin carving and haunted mazes. It’s not really celebrated here, though, so I’m a little bummed that I’m missing everything. But, I was pretty ecstatic to receive a package from my Momma-Bear containing tons of Halloween decorations and festive surprises, so it all works out! Man, I just love my family more than words can describe.
Bonjour, tout le monde!
Well, this weekend we experienced some sort of cool of French holiday. I’m not going to lie, I’m still not sure what we were celebrating, but most of the shops downtown had huge 50% off sales, so that’s really all that matters, right? Just kidding. I’ve heard that this is a holiday used to officially wave farewell to the summer now that the fall season has begun, and since autumn is my favorite time of year, I am more than willing to say goodbye to summer!
