Bonne Rentrée 2017!


Hello friends!

So this is our 6th « rentrée scolaire » here west of Paris!  I can’t believe it. My kids are entering 6th and 7th grade and they’re in the same « college » which is such a relief. But the cherry on top is that they’ll be taking the bus.  I hate morning drop-offs! Now I can have my mornings and my hot cup of coffee. Lire la suite

Time for a Spring Break!

Hello! I hope you’re enjoying the sunshine today.  There won’t be a coffee time tomorrow morning but if you’re like me, you’re maybe getting ready for the kids Spring Break!

I’ll try to make the best of it too…I hope you do as well.

Time to clean out my house, go on a cleansing diet, plant my herb garden, put my life in order, and meditate! Ok, maybe I’ll do 2 of those things…

I’ll write again in May!  Hope to see you at our next Business Buzz with Femmepreneurs at Carabistouilles, Friday May 5th, 10 am.

In the meantime….



Spring is in the Air!


I’m so happy spring is near. You can feel it in the garden, on people’s faces, and cats and dogs are going crazy…. With Spring comes sunshine and warmer temperatures, but also optimism. It’s a time of growth and new beginnings. So let’s celebrate!  For the month of March, see below two uplifting events here in Orgeval! Lire la suite
