Jardin du peintre Van Beek.

Je souhaite à toutes et à tous une journée exceptionnelle pleine de gratitude et de joie. En effet, c’est Thanksgiving aux USA et la partie américaine de moi a envie de fêter ça avec vous!

Je disais à mes enfants ce matin, « vous ne devinerez jamais pour quoi j’ai de la gratitude aujourd’hui! ».  Ils répondent: Pour la maison? non. Pour Papa? non. Pour le bon repas? non, non, non… En effet ils n’ont pas deviné. Alors j’ai dit, Lire la suite

Happy Summer!

Dear friends and new members!

It’s vacation time! If you’re going away, have a fun and safe trip. Relaaaaax! If you’re not going away, enjoy the summer evenings and quiet. David and I aren’t going away very far but it will be a relaxing summer anyway. The kids are going on fun summer camps and for a couple of weeks we’ll be together down south at our house in the Ardèche. They will enjoy the pool and the trampoline!lavande

Well, as for me, it’s finally time to say I completed my job Lire la suite

To Kick Off 2018, a Minceur Café!

Hi there!

So….here’s the scoop…

I’m not closing down my blog nor stopping FCP events.   I’m sorry I haven’t been around as much as I would have liked to these past months (past year?) but I had other priorities to attend to and. It was hard and I was going through a crisis.

Well, I feel like I’m coming out of my cave now! Turning a page and 2018 is going to be a whole different story! Lire la suite

Wishing you something different for 2018!

It’s almost 6 pm where I live near Paris and I’m sure you’ve heard it all already. Wishes for health, joy, love, success, peace…

I want to wish you something priceless, limitless, precious and rare…MORE TIME FOR YOURSELF! and use that time to meditate…write…sleep…love yourself.

Have an extraordinary 2018!images

Merry Christmas! Enjoy with loved ones!

My family building a snowman.

Feeling guilty I wasn’t out there building it with them. But I needed my time alone.

This picture was taken in January 2013! What a great memory. I took it out to say how grateful I am to have such a lovely family. Christmas time is for kids but also for a fun family get together. I hope you will be with family and/or friends too. Don’t be alone. And if you know anybody who is alone, why not invite them over? It’s sad to be alone during festive times.

On another note, I’m preparing my Lire la suite

Fab Feb Events!

February begins in one week and I’m happy to announce 3 exciting events for this exceptional 29 day month. Actually shortened by 9 days for me because I plan to go away after the last event. Time to go skiing! I miss the awesome majestic Alps covered with pure white snow and breathing in that fresh crisp air! Looking forward to hearing the deep, mysterious silence at the top of the mountains and then skiing downhill tout schuss and flying like a bird….aaaah….I’m a different person.february And of course, we’ll be celebrating Lire la suite
