French Women Love to Dream

French Secret #30
French Women believe in dreaming.  They believe in taking a break from the hectic responsibilities of the day and finding the time and place to contemplate.  To dream.

In a world of distractions, how do you find these quiet moments, just for yourself?  I'd love to know!

  1. Ah oui....
    Finding time to dream is an absolute must....
    My favorite time to do this is when everyone is asleep...and I am out on the balcony gazing at the endless sea of stars....

    How are you, chere Jamie?? I hope you are having a fabulous week, dear!
    We are getting everything ready for back to school!! Alas, I have been on the computer only intermittently...
    Are you ready and excited for L'Automne?

    1. Bonjour, Irina! Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I especially appreciate your taking the time to write in the middle of Back to School! The French call it "le rentree." (meaning--to re-enter life, school etc. after lounging about, relaxing by the beach or in the country all summer. Sounds divine, non? Anyway, I love the idea of staring at the stars. We have a deck and my husband sometimes goes to bed earlier than me, and I think--this is what I should do! How dreamy! Oh, and yes, I'm ready and excited for L'Automne. I send you lots of good wishes, dear! Bisous, Jamie

  2. Jamie, dear, I just tried following you on Pinterest by clicking the button on the right hand side, but it takes me to "Kate"....is this your daughter's Pinterest?

    1. Dear Irina--Thank you so much for letting me know about this! Kate is not my daughter. Somehow, the links are off. I am having such a time with all this. I will get it fixed. Merci beaucoup! xo Jamie
