Paris bound

On our way to France and a bit later to Switzerland !

It’s been a year since I last hugged and laughed to the stupid jokes of my bunch of crazy brothers. 367 days exactly since I’ve shared an everlasting chatty tea (with macarons) with my precious sister!

So thrilled to finally have dîner with my parents tonight ! I love our life in the Philippines, but man, it is so far from (my!) home…

For a whole month, I’ll speak only French, eat French and dress French! Cocorico !

As we were wandering in Inchon airport  – our connecting flight for Paris  leaving in another 6 hours! we played it like the typical cliché of expats and hit Starbucks.

Even totally wrapped in my pashminas, I was freezing, dramatically resenting the deprivation of 20 degrees. Didn’t take long before the genuine Parisian grumpiness took a toll on me.. That’s when I looked up to this panel.

A gentle reminder that your day will go the way the corners of your mouth turn.  Choose your perspective : either blaming the cold; Or welcoming Spring. 

Cheers to La Vie en Rose!

    1. Merci ! We are still in my hometown, FOntainebleau, so happy to wander in the forest again and show the Attilas around. Oddly enough, I don’t mind the jetlag that allows me to be totally up and running at 4, have a decent yoga sessions and enjoy a run among the most beautiful trees. So quiet, no car, just fresh air and nature all around.. Have a lovely day my dear, plein de bises!
