Premières Papillotes

We’ve already started eating Papillotes even though it’s not really Christmastime yet. I’m a bad American and should wait until after Thanksgiving to do anything Christmas-related, but too late, I’ve already started listening to carols and bought all my gifts. Papillotes are chocolaty goodness though, so I don’t feel bad for eating them. Plus they come with witty (eh, maybe not all of them…) quotes and proverbs.

La Papillote, le chocolat des fêtes de fin d’année

These are the first three quotes I got:

On s’étonne trop de ce qu’on voit rarement et pas assez de ce qu’on voit tous les jours. – Madame de Genlis

Une idée qui n’est pas dangéreuse ne mérite pas d’être appelée une idée. – Oscar Wilde

On ne doit cesser de se taire que quand on a quelque chose à dire qui vaut mieux que le silence. – Abbé Dinouart

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
