Hiking in Normandy, June 2016
had a beautiful 24K hike in the sunshine today... loved those poppies!!!
bought myself a bright summery skirt to celebrate the fact that I am on vacation starting tonight!!!
is is feeling good after getting a hair cut! :) How is your week going so far?
had to take another picture (girls!!!), as I didn't really feel the previous one was 'me'! Now this one is my smile... Hello Sparkfriends!!! :)))
A new Before/After! So grateful for this wonderful weight loss!
is on my knees after a challenging 5-hour hike (up and down up and down... for 5 hours!!!)! Will post a blog tomorrow! Good night!
A big smile! Sept 2016
took a picture of my poor car last night... yes, the whole back of the car was taken away (and the 2 left windows were broken). The insurance doesn't cover this... Feeling sad and burdened...
LOVED my first day in Armenia (can you tell?!)! Can't wait to go to the mountain villages tomorrow!
is actually paid to do this job!!! ;-) (But it WAS an exhausting day with 8 hours on fairly bad and mountainous roads...)
visited people at the border in a war zone, with their house walls full of bullets... As I was leaving, the owner, an old man, went to his garden to pick up roses for me... Unforgettable times...
is home and missing my dear Armenian colleagues! - Haha, yes, you see I do work in the office sometimes too, it isn't all about nice walks in the mountains and getting roses! ;)
is working like crazy in Ghana, haven't seen anything of the country yet! But it is still a fantastic time (I am hiding at the back in the pic!!!)
bought a new blouse today! Nothing like an upcoming date to make you feel you have nothing to wear!!!!
is hoping you'll enjoy singing in the rain with me (please see my latest blog)!!! :)
had a wonderful hike yesterday for the 1st Nov holiday! I hope you'll enjoy reading my blog about it! :)
bought myself some flowers this weekend, just because... And I should do that more often! Have a beautiful Monday dear Sparkfriends!
accepted an offer on my apartment this morning! Now I really need to find a nice place to move to!!! Goodbye little appartment, I am glad I have a couple of months to say goodbye properly!
is 48 today and got the best birthday gift: my offer on the little house of my dreams (still in the same area 15 minutes away from Paris) was accepted and it looks like everything is OK now! Woohoo!
Hiking in Estonia
Estonia, June 2016
doesn't have any work trip for the summer! So I bought myself my summer basil pot, like I do each year! Do you also have some little traditions like that? :)
The sunset over Tallinn (Estonia) from the hotel was the cherry on the cake of this wonderful trip!
loved the interaction between father, son and seagull during my walk around beautiful Tallinn, Estonia, tonight...
Wonderful memories of Landscape Arboretum (MN) and Sparkfriends, even though I love life in Paris!
We had such a beautiful picnic in the vineyard... missing HOLLYM48 and WILDASTER! (MN, May 2016)

Hiking by the Ocean in Brittany (Feb 2016)!
Time for a new Before/After! Feeling sooo encouraged!
is looking at these lovely flowers on my desk this morning and loving working from home (who would have thought?!)
was grateful for a lovely time over dinner with my mother last night... these moments when she seems content are precious...
