The Orange Leader

Hi there! I am a life-long Orangeite who has just moved to Paris. I am spending this year teaching English, improving my French, and exploring France (and some of its neighboring countries) before heading to college next fall. Keep reading to find out what’s been going on “Meanwhile With Madeleine.” Thanks for allowing me to share my adventures with you!

I hope everyone’s New Year is off to a great start! I was so happy to be able to come home to Orange for Christmas. I had a great time catching up with friends and family (and eating lots of gumbo).

I’m back in Paris now, trying to figure out how four whole months have passed since I moved here. While it really freaks me out that time is going by so quickly, I’m trying to let it motivate me to make the most of every day I have left. I want to see, do, learn, and experience as much as I possibly can before it’s time to head back to the States this summer. I’ve got lots of fun plans coming up here in Paris and I’ve even started organizing trips to a couple of other countries in Europe!

It’s good to be back, and it was really special to be able to ring in the New Year in such an amazing city. As cliché as it sounds, I’m truly excited for all that the coming year has in store. Here’s to a happy 2017!
