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.

Spring is here and with it much energy and hope. I don’t know about you but I found the winter to be very long and cold. I had moments of joy and hope thanks to a group called « Boullon d’Etoiles » and the snow and other things but I also had moments of sadness and illness. I’m so happy Spring is here! How about a cafe on May 4 in Orgeval! read on!

This morning I woke up early and felt like reading my TAO Oracle cards, just for fun. Lire la suite

Pour bien commencer l’année!


Voici les nouvelles: je n’arrête pas d’écrire dans mon blog, ni d’organiser des événements FCP.  J’avais d’autres priorités à régler ces derniers mois (année?) et je suis désolée d’avoir été absente si longtemps.

Maintenant je me sens sortir de cette crise! Une nouvelle page 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


Hello world,

It’s the last day of September. Tomorrow is a new month, a new day…  I’m closing the « rentrée » chapter today.  Tomorrow is a new beginning.  Yesterday at 10 am I was alone drinking my tea on the sunny terrace of Carabistouilles.  It was fine. I didn’t expect many people to show up anyway.  So I decided then and there to close another chapter in my life.  Maybe it’s a temporary closure, who knows.  I’m not going to organize any new FCP (Family Cafe Project) events for a few months, maybe forever.  I have new plans for tomorrow…and I’m letting the signs guide me.

Do you believe everything happens for a reason?  Lire la suite

Time To Be Me…


Hi there!

In a few days, my life will drastically change from being a stay-at-home-taxi-mom to two wild teenagers, a caretaker to a senile and absent minded 90 year old mother-in-law, a confused « conseillère municipale » to a baffled Town Hall (although I am head over heals with our new President Emmanuel Macron), and Lire la suite
