Hellooo! Today’s post has a theme, and that theme is . . .
because I am going to PARIS. As you can tell by the title, I am incredibly excited. This all came about a couple of weeks ago. Nicolas had just left to go back to Denmark, and I was so sad. Not to mention that it was our three year anniversary (that was poor planning oops.) Anyway, my brother handed me a card, and on the inside was the loveliest little note written by Nicolas. He signed off by writing “Paris is always a good idea …” We were on FaceTime, and he prompted me to go check behind the Paris sign (in the photo above) in my bedroom. To my surprise, there were two tickets to Paris tucked sneakily behind it. Of course I immediately began crying! I have dreamed of going to Paris my entire life, and I still can’t believe that I am actually going in a little less than a month! Life is crazy. I have spent the past week planning my outfits and OF COURSE our day in DISNEYLAND. I have visited Disney World (my favorite place in the world) several times but have never been to another Disney resort before. To be honest, I am not sure if I am more excited to see the Eiffel Tower or Sleeping Beauty’s castle, but don’t tell Nicolas that. 😉
For the remainder of today’s post I wanted to share a recipe I recently tried that was super yummy and also French-inspired (see, I told you this would be a themed post. 🙂 ) I made my very first galette which is similar to a pie but surprisingly much easier! This dessert is typically pastry dough wrapped over a filling made from fruit, sugar, and butter. YUM. If you’re not familiar with the term galette, you may have heard this treat referred to as a rustic tart or (in Italian) a crostata.
I followed this recipe from my friend Danielle’s blog. She even included photos, making it super easy to follow! I was surprised by how quickly the entire dessert came together. It made the kitchen smell amazing and looked so pretty when I pulled it out of the oven!
I served it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert and then had it the following day for breakfast with a little whipped cream. 🙂 I look forward to trying this in the summertime with fresh peaches or strawberries!
That is all for today! Have you ever been to Paris or visited the Disneyland Paris Resort before? Nicolas has been a handful of times, but I’d love to hear any suggestions you may have! Have a lovely day. 🙂
