Bonjour! I’m Charlianne. Though I barely spoke French, in June 2017 I traded in my bagels for baguettes, big coffees for tiny little coffees and handshakes for la bise and moved to Paris from New York City. I’m an American journalist and writer, married to a Frenchman and learning my first foreign language.

I started this site to share my experience with moving to Paris and the beautiful, funny and interesting things I’m learning. You can follow along as I learn the language, navigate the immigration process, discover the culture and share the good, the bad and the delicious in France.
