French Women are Spontaneous.

Bonjour, mes amies!
We're getting very close to the Ooh La La! Paris Tour!
It officially begins the evening of  May 2nd with our champagne welcome at the Hotel Belloy!
The next few weeks will go by quickly and then we will be in beautiful Paris!

Yes, can you tell I'm getting excited?

Today, I want to talk about surprises and spontaneity.
French women are always ready for the unexpected.  From my experience, with interviewing many lovely ladies in France, I've found that they will often not completely commit to a rendezvous until the last minute.  Yes, they can be very mysterious!

These mystery comes from a love of romance, but also because they know that sometimes plans must be reconsidered and rearranged.  Perhaps there will be a strike or a demonstration.  Many times, these demonstrations in Paris are fun and friendly and simply an excuse to get out and walk through the streets with some colorful placards.  Sometimes, they're of a more serious nature.

And sometimes, these strikes can be inconvenient, especially for visitors to the The City of Light.  In fact, I've just heard that the museum workers at the Palace of Versailles have been striking as of late.  We are scheduled to spend Wednesday, May 6th at the Palace and there's no strike scheduled for that day, but still we must be like the French Women--spontaneous.  

I am not expecting any change in plans, an d I'm not writing about this to worry you, mes amies, but rather, I'm writing to suggest that we visit Paris with an open heart and a sense of surprise and possibility...oh, and magic!

How do you plan to be spontaneous in Paris, mes amies?  I'd love to hear about it.  Merci beaucoup!


  1. I have heard a lot about the strikes in France and know that we need to go with the flow...I plan to be open to new experiences, seeing new things and perhaps buying an unexpected treasure or finding something new about myself. I am excited to meet you and the other women and to actually be in PARIS!

    1. Dear Leslie--I love your attitude. Yes, there will be unexpected treasures along the way, and I do believe you'll find out new things about yourself as you explore the ooh la la! in Paris. I can't wait to see you, mon amie! xo Jamie

  2. I love walking around the city with an open heart and mind and coming upon the unexpected: a bakery, market, park, shop, or whatever. Through one's travels, one learns a lot about oneself as one meets novel challenges or is exposed to novel experiences. I cannot wait to meet the other women and reunite with you, Jamie, in the most beautiful city in the world!

    1. Dear Luanna--You are a true traveler! I can't wait to see you in Paris and share all those delightfully unexpected moments! See you soon. Love, Jamie

  3. I never visited Paris or other city in France. But it is my big dream and i hope that i will go there this summer. Because I think that France is very inspiration country with lot of insteresting places!

    PS.: I seriously love Your books. I wish You lot of success!

    1. Dear Tereza--Merci beaucoup for writing to me! I looked at your google page and I LOVE your illustrations. You are so talented. I know you will visit France one day. Just keep the dream in your heart and it's sure to come true. Thank you for reading my books! Love, Jamie
