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

Jolly June Events

What? June already!! Well, yes, and it will go by very quickly. Before you know it, school will be out and you’ll be on the « autoroute du soleil » on your way to the beach! So I’ve put together a few events and managed to squeeze them into June, just so you can leave on a long break with a good memory of me. And you’ll look forward to September because the show will go on! 😉

First, this little piece of advice, maybe something to ask for on Mother’s Day?… Lire la suite

New Blog Coming Soon! really…

Dear all,

Maybe it’s a « mid life » crisis? after all my « mid life » birthday is coming up soon… Maybe it’s because I need to make sure the new helper I found to care for my mother-in-law is a good one? Maybe, maybe, maybe…anyway, whatever the reason…I really do want to write, re-think my project and organise more cafés in Orgeval. How do I know I want to do this? That is a secret for now but I will tell you in one of my next cafés!

Don’t forget to check the femmepreneurs site for our next Business Luncheon May 17 in Orgeval. You must book and pay for the event before May 13! This time, viva Italia!

By the way…

Detox café, Thursday 01/21/16

So we’re already 13 days into the New Year and I haven’t really come up with any new resolutions. They’re the same as last year. I want to lose 20 kilos (well, 4 will be ok too) and go back to work (part time) and improve my marriage and relationship with my kids…and I want to walk my dog more! What I seriously want to do is make time to Lire la suite

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

th

Well, how lucky am I to write my 100th article today!

Perfect timing because I intended to thank all of you who have been to our FCP events and to those who would really like to come but can’t, and they still write nice replies to my emails. Thank you so much to those who cheer me up when I want to abandon everything, to those who believe in me, and to my husband especially who has been my number 1 fan from the beginning! Thank you David!

And thank you Guillaume, Maureen, Helen, Deirdre, Cara, Danielle, Séverine, Orgeval, Robynn, Sonja, Catherine, Nathalie, Lizzie, Lara,Aude, Charlotte, and more…all of you who have hosted and presented…I’m sorry if I forgot to mention you here.

I’m grateful we’re all healthy and safe. Thinking of all the things I’m grateful for gives me so much energy! Try it, you’ll see!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Have a fantastic day!

Lots of Love to you and your family,
Agnès

Thanksgiving ce Jeudi 26 novembre à Carabistouilles

Quelle période tragique et triste nous vivons. Nous réalisons à quel point la vie est précieuse, courte, et fragile. C’est une période de reflexion profonde sur nos valeurs, nos idées politiques, et spirituelles. Quoi qu’il en soit, nous sommes tous choqués et affectés par les attentats. Nos enfants plus que nous car ils ressentent nos peurs.

Alors, c’est le moment plus que jamais de se réunir et de célébrer Thanksgiving ensemble autour d’un bon repas chaleureux, car après tous ses événements qui nous ont refroidis, (et la météo aussi!) nous avons besoin de chaleur humaine et de continuer à vivre humainement et joyeusement. On ne peut vivre sans joie. Elle se trouve partout et il faut aller la chercher sinon on risque de se faire du mal. Il faut montrer à nos enfants que l’on peut recommencer à rire et se réunir après avoir pleuré. Venez en famille, avec des amis, ou seul…

Happiness is Gratitude and Thanksgiving

Every year I look forward to the month of November and of course Thanksgiving.  Having grown up in New York, I celebrated this holiday and its meaning stayed with me. It’s a beautiful celebration of gratitude, along with an amazing meal. I’m grateful for Lire la suite
