French Secret #32
French Women will change with the seasons.
They'll clear out their wardrobes, perhaps buy a new lipstick, consider a new hairdo, and walk to the market, bringing home some delicious seasonable fruits.
A French Woman will welcome the autumn, inhaling the crisp air with a sense of purpose and a willingness to embrace new beginnings, new possibilities. And transformation.
While we often talk about reinventing ourselves, our French sisters have a more organic approach to change. They see themselves as creatures of nature--a flower or a bird or even a butterfly and they will go about subtly transforming themselves in preparation for a new season.
And now that we are coming to the close of summer, I wonder are you in the process of a transformation? I'd love to know!
