The year 2020 has proven to be a challenging one. In March, the world came to a stop and we all learned to pivot. I have been home in Chicago ever since, and trips to Paris have become an increasingly distant memory.
Being a small business owner is filled with ups and downs, and this year has had its fair share. Thank you for being right by my side, cheering me on.
Together we Frenchified our lives, baked Dutch oven bread, and listened to jazz music while drinking Trader Joe’s wines. We have connected on Sundays with our coffee and croissants as we read “Links I love”.
While I wasn’t traveling from city to city, I was given the gift of more time to connect with so many of you on a deeper level. From direct messages on Instagram, to emails, and the occasional phone call, I am so grateful for this amazing community of Francophiles.
This year I made the tough decision to stay home for Thanksgiving. Missing my family has been one of the hardest parts of 2020. We will drink cocktails together over Zoom and I will attempt to cook my first turkey.
As we all celebrate in our own 2020 way, I send my wishes for a safe and Happy Thanksgiving for you, your friends and your families.
Thank you so much for your support this year!
