Hey guys! I’m Maggie: Florida State University grad, married to a Frenchman, and mom to baby French Fry and an Australian Shepherd (the fluffiest thing you’ve ever seen). I enjoy reading, being outdoors, drinking tea & writing letters, all things Disney, fall and springtime, the Olympics, and nerdy things. I also like going on adventures!
Macarons & Paperbacks used to be An American In France. Since I moved back to the States in 2014, I changed my blog name to better fit my situation. The macarons represent my love for France and for baking; the paperbacks is for my hobby as a reader and book blogger. My blog’s banner was made by yours truly :) I love dabbling in Photoshop.
Currently my little family is residing in Wilmington, NC, a beautiful and eclectic town that we have absolutely fallen in love with. If you’ve never heard of it, I guarantee that you’ve seen it in a film or tv show (Iron Man 3, Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill, most Nicholas Sparks movies, just to name a few).
For the moment I’m working as a part-time secretary. I enjoy being able to split my time between working, blogging/reading, and being with my sweet little man. One of my biggest dreams is to work at a library, but right now I’m content with volunteering on the weekends.
