The Thankful Project: November 10th

The Thankful Project: November 10th: Memory

Memories are so sweet. They bring you back to a moment, a special time that you don't want to forget. I'm thankful for a memory that I know I'll remember the rest of my life: my birthday in Paris.

The morning of my birthday my mom and my cousin Kelly woke up early and went to La Cuisine Paris for a French breakfast pastry class. As a baker, this was my dream come true. Learning to make pain au chocolat and croissants by scratch by a French pastry chef was just amazing.

Then we spent the day wandering around Paris, eating, shopping and sitting in my favorite garden, Jardin des Tuileries with a bottle of rose. As evening fell, we packed up our bags and headed to the Eiffel Tower and I got my birthday wish: a picnic, a glass of champagne and a macaroon under the Eiffel Tower. It was a magical day to remember.
