Greetings from the American Girl

- La rentrée 1 year ago How to start? Where to start? Last time I checked in summer temperatures were barely registering in Paris, I was dipping my toes in the city's public pools for the first time and mentally fortifying myself for an alpine trek. And now, the ground is scattered with the first of fall's leaves, my...
- Fear Conquering 1 year ago Once again I've learned to never say never. I promised myself to never ever dip my toes into a public pool. Middle school mandated swim lessons at the local YMCA gave me what some might call a hyper-exaggerated aversion to communal locker rooms and the germs that lurk on slippery tile...
- Hello Spring 1 year ago Spring has arrived with its accompanying craziness in tow, and like the rest of Paris's sunshine deprived population mon mari and I have been squeezing in as much outdoor activity as possible and celebrating the change in season. But, the weather isn't the only thing changing this month....

- Thank You, My Deer 1 year ago Can one word change your year? That's what Amanda Brooks from the blog Run to the Finish asked in a post back in January. I breezed through the post, thought briefly about a word, but never came back to it. Fast forward to last week. I'm coming out of my metro stop and a word, or really a...

Greetings from the American Girl was one of the first *life in France* blogs I started reading before I moved to Paris; it quickly became (and remains) a favourite even though I am now back living in Canada.

Absolutely! Greetings from the American Girl provides incredibily insightful observations from the view of an American Expat living in Paris. She describes her experiences (learning to be pastry chef, the pictures make your mouth water), useful tips(Quest for the best croissant) and adjustments (shaving your legs in a french shower/bath), to life abroad in a format that is both entertaining and often useful at the same time. The fun part is you never quite know what to expect. Except guaranteed that you will come away with a true flavor of the Paris experience. Thanks, always enjoy reading.

I loved reading your running blogs and look forward to reading more about this American Girl's adventures abroad now that you are in pastry school. Running and pastry, my two favourite things!

I love this blog! It's so much fun to follow Lindsey's adventures not just in Paris but all over Europe. And the pictures are fantastic. Reading this blog makes me want to move to Paris and live Lindsey's fabulous life.

I love this blog! My favourite posts are in the travel section. The restaurant, hotel and attraction recommendations have been very useful. This summer we travelled Germany and Austria, and I followed all of your recommendations religiously. Did not disappoint! Remains my favourite expat blog to date.

Being French but having lived overseas for many years it is fun to read what the foreigners have to say about your country. Greetings from the American Girl is very realistic and always fun to read! I have now moved away from France again and I am still reading this blog to see what she is up to and the pastry school is amazing!

This blog gives such great insight into life a Paris and beyond! I love getting to know the "American Girl" and hearing about all of her adventures. It's been so exciting watching her start a new chapter in her life (pastry school!) and I can't wait to hear more about it.

Greetings from the American Girl is the only blog I read on a regular basis. Lindsey's ability to welcome the reader to Paris by writing about "little" and "big" things and scenes of Paris sheds a perfect balance on "the city of lights." As Jan Frank mentioned, it IS fun not knowing what to expect!!

With everything from food to travel, GftAG tells the tale of a young woman whose experiences leave us chuckling, wishing to hop on the first plane to Paris or (more often than not) wishing to try her latest recipe. It's informative, funny, relatable, smart, creative and easy to read with its variety of topics. I work in the entertainment industry (Starz Entertainment) where I'm always surrounded by scripts, novels and treatments, but Lindsey's blog is some of the best storytelling I have had the pleasure of reading on a regular basis. I think my favorite post is "The Wal-Mart of Paris" - we've all been in that position where we miss certain luxuries we don't realize we have until we DON'T have it.

A few months ago when I went to visit Paris I spent countless time on the Greetings from the American Girl blog. It helped me plan out my trip and know what to expect during my first trip to Europe! I was able to plan out events and places I wanted to go while I was visiting! The bakery suggestions were particularly useful! This blog is insightful with a touch of humor. It always gives a fresh perspective on life and the goings on in the life of an American living in Paris. Will definitely keep following!

This blog is awesome! It gives a hilarious idea of what it is like to be a young american in one of the most crazy cities in the world. She talks about it all...from learning the language to talking about how awful the dog poop situation is! Not to mention she has celiac disease and is trying to cope through life in a city full of delicious pastries! She seems like a really fun quirky lady!

I love reading this blog! Lindsey is an incredible writer, and with her eloquent and humorous prose, I so enjoy reading about her wonderful, comical, and interesting adventures in Paris! She makes me want to live the fabulous life of an American Expat in Paris! Lindsey lives a very interesting life in Paris, and this blog is a great window into the joys, challenges, and every day occurrences of living abroad. She and her mari sure are adorable too! :) Can't get enough of this very fun blog!

This is one of my favorite France blogs to read, and I always drool over all of the delicious pastries!

The only way I can be in France is to live vicariously through Lindsey! Fun, informative and a sharp sense of humor. I love it!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Reading this blog makes me yearn for more adventure in my life (not to mention more pastries...). Lindsey's way of describing her daily experiences abroad provide the audience with the sense of being there with her -- for the good, the bad, and the delicious! I also find this blog to be very informative. Lindsey's travel advice is sound and helpful when planning a trip. Plus, it makes me just want to give her a big bear hug. Yep.
