Cherry Plum Jam is a blog about small things in big places. I love details and writing about them, so here you’ll get descriptions of my experiences and adventures (and sometimes snafus), along with my observations of people and places both in my current home of Lille and from my travels. Stay with me and let’s learn about the world together. 

Psst: If you haven’t read The Elegance of the Hedgehog, do so. I promise you won’t regret it. In this book, one of the characters, a French concierge, has cherry plum jam (confiture des mirabelles) on biscuits for breakfast and, as I majored in English and this blog details my time abroad in France, I thought it fitting that the phrase should be its eponym.
