getting fit

I have still not managed to start my 2016 resolutions, but I am at least starting to THINK about them…even though I’m writing this with a glass of wine in my hand, and haven’t I had glass of water all day – Ughhh! There’s lots of work to be done. But I am feeling the need to turn myself around and get fit and start this new year right. Does anyone have any good at-home workouts? I would love any suggestions ! Now let’s get started !

A fresh new year

I am so happy to welcome 2016 with open arms. To move past the terrible and emotional year that was 2015. To try and start fresh, with new resolutions and hopes.

Some goals for 2016

To be more patient, to really take time for myself, to drink more water, to drink less coffee, to read a book (yes, an actual book, not a magazine), to take time for my skin (yeah, 40 is the new 20, but tell that to my skin!), to make more time for my family, to be more creative with the kids, to put down the phone, to get outside, to relax and to slow down and enjoy – basically to just be a little better at everything I am trying to do right now – and again, to be more patient. Breathe…

Here’s to a year of peace and honesty, of love and kindness, of forgiveness, of strength, of hope. Happy 2016 friends, wishing you all the very best for this new year.

LIFE

Where does the time go? It’s been ages since I’ve had time to post on the blog, for the past year somehow the days have just flown by… But this rentrée I have promised that I would take more time for myself and to get back to what I love – spending time with the family and friends, exploring and taking photos. With back to school and a new job, it all seems pretty daunting, but I really hope to keep it up…

In the meantime, here are some pics of our days in the sun, which seem so far away now in this cold September air… Hope everyone is having a great back to school and had a relaxing holiday weekend!

New Year 2015

Happy New Year everyone! I do have to say I am very glad that 2014 is over and am excited for the new adventures that 2015 will bring. Here are a few of my simple, but much needed resolutions that I will work hard to keep for the new year:

Be more patient

Be more patient

Be more present (for the kids, for my husband, for life!)

Do more things for myself (like use that gym membership that is almost expired…rrr)

Be more patient

Take advantage of every moment with the ones I love, and take more photos:)

And just have more fun in 2015!

Wishing you all a New Year full of love, adventures, happiness and health.

Sweet Vintage

I am loving the great vintage selection for girls and boys from the Cali shop Sweet Threads. Every single thing reminds me of my childhood. I so wish that I could dress my kids like this all the time, but I know one little girl that would never let me have my way!

Home again

We just returned from our month long summer holiday, I know, we are very lucky to live in a country where that is the norm! Two weeks in, the kids broke my phone and I was without cell or internet until we returned home. It was nice to be unconnected and spend some real quality time with everyone – a real vacation. So it’s been pretty quiet over here on the blog, but here are some pics of our adventures with friends, soaking up the sun and running wild on the beach. Hope you all had a wonderful summer!

Nous sommes de retour après un mois de vacances, on est quand même très chanceux ici en France! Deux semaines après notre départ les enfants on détruit, oui détruit, mon portable. Alors plus de téléphone ni d’internet. Donc de vrai vacances passé en famille, hors connection. Voici enfin des images de nos aventures avec des amis et famille, profitant de chaque instant de soleil. J’espère que tout le monde est passé des super vacances et bonne rentrée!
