.. Or come shine, Paris is always a good idea! Holidays are over, we landed in Cebu last Friday. I am going through our pictures, and as the temperature here reaches 92F, I recall how Paris welcomed us, full spring swing, with its famous April showers (we actually call them March ones). I love the rain – with a bit of sun . Because you know it won’t … Continue reading Mundane Monday: Come rain ..
Best way to start the week: learning while having fun ! In other words, join Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge. The topic of the week is Number 1 (or 1 item). I combined it with the topic of last week, Perspective (Unusual angle or point of view). The rainy season is looming, the beach is finally totally deserted… How about a Coconut or a Mango juice to start … Continue reading Here is to beat the Monday Blues

In modern French and several other European languages, the term simply refers to any type of candy or small confection. If you need choice and quality, just open the ancestral door of the “Mere de Famille” (Family mum … Continue reading The French word of the day: bonbon
The ad I can’t get tired of watching whenever I am a little stressed or overwhelmed with the mess at hand. I am literally breathing with this couple. Their energy is contagious, and before I realize it, I am already wearing my running shoes. Off for a run! Wishing you all Harmony, Balance and Rhythm all week long 🙂 Continue reading Best way to start the week: hold on, let go, trust and … fly !
Here is to kickstart our week! Love this picture, those women on the front row make me laugh every time I look at them. This is what I call aging gracefully. French are right, age is of no importance … unless you are a cheese! Wishing you all an awesome week 🙂 Continue reading Move up to the front row!
