I have just celebrated my first Thanksgiving with our English Bible study group + some (there turned out to be 15 of us - Americans, English, Irish, Indian and French)! Obviously, it was hosted by Krista and Jonathan (only people with a place big enough) Everyone brought some food and drink and Krista cooked up three chickens and made stuffing and we had mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes and Lauren's amazing green bean stew thing and ratatouille cheese and then... LOADS of cakes including the traditional Pumpkin Pie, Doug's chocolate cheesecake, Ian's Banoffie Pie and Jonathan's work Colleague, Johnan's eclairs!

Spot the non-American food in that lot!

Then we all went around and said what we were thankful for. That was really great and it really makes you stop and think how blessed your life is.
This year for me has been so incredibly blessed. I have had so many experiences, met some amazing people, learned how to speak French properly and met the most wonderful boyfriend. I really feel like God has done so much in my life this year and yes, there really is a lot to be thankful for. It was awesome to see what everyone else had to say and really share that time with some special people.

Afterwards we played a crazy charades game and just sat around chatting. A really good afternoon.
...and it feels like the Christmas season has really begun now. Lights and decorations are popping up all over town and yesterday, Sophie and I wandered around the Christmas market and drunk a Vin Chaud... it felt very festive. This reminds me that I only have 3 weeks left of this almost-year in Nancy... a year to be really thankful for :)
