Creative Blogger Award

7 things about myself!!!

Borjana from 'greenandstylish' charged me with this wonderfull task...write down '7 things about myself'!!

I had to think first because in my mind there's so much more then 7 things...so the essence first.

My weakness & pride, my 2 children, Géraldine my daughter, 20 this may (Jesuz, I'm getting old) & my son, Max, 18 since a few days!! THIS is what it's all about, family.

The second most important thing for me is my home. I need security & safety for my inner peace & that is what I can find at home!

Also, my very good friends (I'm very lucky) & a well filled & easy social life are very important to me. I like cooking & having friends over for diner...I love to laugh & having fun. Being surrounded by people I love.

I'm very sensitive for beauty, this can be a painting, a house , a dress, a person...I believe that if you look at good quality, well finished, elegant or refined things, it improves our own development.

Traveling!!! From Venice to Rome,Paris or NYC, Marrakech, India, Cambodia or the amazing bleu sea of the Maledives...it's a drug. Everytime I come back with lots of inspiration & energy.

My moment for myself...once in a while I like to be on my own, in silence. Also, early in bed...a good movie or a good book & some nice classical music with a cup of freshly made ginger tea.

A last, I have to tell you that since I'm blogging, I met a lot of interesting people. I learned a lot & here are 7 of my favorite blogs...which I nominate for the 'Creative blogger award',

Paulo Coelho

" Whenever we need to make a very important decision it is best to trust our instincts, because reason usually tries to remove us from our dream, saying that the time is not yet right. Reason is afraid of defeat, but intuition enjoys life and its challenges."
