About Me

A little about me…I first moved to Paris in Fall 2012 for a semester abroad program. At the time, I had absolutely no idea how I would fall completely head-over-heels in love with the city. I returned the following summer for another study abroad program. It was during that time that I first imagined myself living in Paris full time.

Life happened, but I never let go of my dream of living in Paris. Five years later, the stars aligned for me and I moved from Dallas, Texas to Paris. My daily routine in here is full of new challenges, adventures, and excitement. It’s pushed me outside of my comfort zone and allowed me to truly connect with myself and pursue my passions and dreams. Not every day is extraordinary, but I’m lucky to live in a city with as much energy and history as Paris.

My goal is to show you “my” Paris here – my discoveries, favorites, and some of the lessons I learn. Even on the most mundane or average day I find inspiration in being here. It’s the little things – noticing a new detail on a building, attempting a French recipe (my favorite website here), or just by mastering (or beginning to grasp) a new element of the language.

This blog will be about my inspirations, my discoveries, and the highs and lows of living life as an expat. This is just “my” Paris. And I think that’s the incredible part of this city.

Paris means so many things to so many people. I’ve heard from native Parisiens that you can live here your whole life and still not discover everything.

I’m working in Paris as a freelance writer, photographer, and consultant. One of my greatest passions is helping people plan trips to Paris and France. I’d love to help you plan an unforgettable trip to Paris or France (or both!) with my bespoke travel planning services. Just head here for more information on bespoke travel planning!

You can read a little bit more about me and my journey to Paris here, keep up with my travels here, and find some of my favorite spots to eat and drink in Paris here (if you need Dallas places, see my guide for The Infatuation here). Also, I’m always updating my Instagram. And if you need something else, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email!

I’ll always be a Texan at heart, but for now I couldn’t be happier about the French life that I’m building.

Xx, Landen
