Bienvenue en France!


Here we finally are! Still struggling with the 7h of jet lag and the 30 degrees of difference. But I have never been so happy to wake up at 4, all energized. Up for a whole yoga session with no kid jumping on my back, in total silence. Getting dressed with layers and layers of heavy wool, wearing my beloved UGG and eventually wandering in the most invigorating and inspiring forest … Nothing beats this homey feeling, especially in spring.

I would love to share some of it with you, so here is the plan: every day or so, I ll post pictures of something from here. And lucky you, not only you’ll get snapshots of our trip, but also a chance to learn a bit of French. How does it sound?

Get started with this one: FORÊT [fɔʀɛ]

  1. your photos are so beautiful! i can only imagine what france looks like in person. and to think you’re only using your phone’s camera. not that there’s anything wrong with that but seriously, your pictures look so professional-looking! (that’s coming from a non-pro. lol.)

    1. Thanks a lot 🙂 I use the iPhone and whenever I get the chance the hubby ‘s camera too. I don’t take any credit for the Picts , the place is very inspiring. But again thanks so much for your kind words, especially coming from a real photographer ‘s wife 😉 x !

    1. Merci merci 🙂 spring has a magic wand indeed, hadn’t realized how much I had missed it! Have a sweet Sunday 🙂

      1. So just get yourself a house somewhere nice next year (Holland still in the pipeline?), and we’ll show up! As easy as that!

    1. Oh yes, thanks 🙂 don’t know if it’s the privilege of the aging .. Or the fact that I m now living so far from France, but every year I love it more. I finally appreciate all those little jewels that I used to take for granted, the nature, the food, the perfumes … Plus today we have 20 degrees! Vive la France (des vacances)

  2. Bonjour mon ami. I love this idea. Bring more. And learning French….the icing in the cake.
    These photos quality and composition is supreme, and the captions are super smart. Do I recognize your brains here? Lol.
    Enjoy there. Even cold, nature makes it perfect.
    Hugs. Xx

    1. My Brain indeed 😉 thanks for all the sweet words My dear! I must admit that I m looking up to your great pictures!
      We left Fontainebleau today for a real Parisian week … Less nature but more art, love the mix ! A tres bientôt XXX

      1. I’m following your journey too via your photos on Instagram and I’m delighted!! Beautiful scenery and atmosphere. And your family photo is heartwarming! Makes me miss the days when I’m together with all brothers and sisters.
        Enjoy there!!
        A tres bientôt!

      2. 1000 Mercis Lucille 🙂 I have been missing those crazies, feels so good to reconnect ! when the world seems head over feet, some things never change, so heartwarming and reassuring. I know you can totally relate with your brothers and sisters, right? are they all in Brazil?
        A très vite! ❤

      3. Indeed I do relate to e dry single word here. That’s the exact feeling.
        They’re all there. I’m the only ‘gypsy’ in the family. But we see each other as often as possible. In July I’ll have a bunch of them over here, including my father.
        We may go to France too for a few days.
        Keep enjoying family and renewing this good energy you get from them.
        Love from Amsterdam.
        A très vite! ❤️
