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
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
Sorry I had to cancel Friday the 22nd.
How about meeting for a coffee next Friday morning, on the 29th? around 10 am? Just for a warm and relaxed get together!
Let’s meet at Carabistouilles in Orgeval.
Have a great day!
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
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
Some of you may have noticed that I’m not very productive at the moment with my blog and events. Unfortunately I need to take care of a very difficult family situation, as well as everything else… Being a stay at home mom and all that jazz… Lire la suite
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….
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
The lovely month of March is here. I know, it’s still wet and cold but if you look closely you’ll see some flower buds and even flowers! Yes, I can assure you, and here’s a picture to prove it! Twenty more days and it’s officially Spring! Lire la suite
Happy to be back in France and to have some time for myself now that the kids have returned to school. We had an amazing adventure in Madagascar. Our vacation wasn’t a relaxing one. Lire la suite
