How do I want to feel?

A month ago today, I turned 39 and in these past few weeks, I’ve started a new job, moved to a new city (part-time) and launched a new project.

Side note : if you know any French speaking teachers who could benefit from a more balanced work-home life, send them my way @enseignanteequilibree on Instagram and on Facebook!

Strangely though, while this may seem like a lot, I feel like I’ve accomplished nothing at all this past month and I can’t seem to shake this feeling. Read More



Things I learned from a visit to the zoo with a three year old

Last Sunday, my husband and I accompanied our friend Karen and her three year-old son to the zoo and here are a few things that I learned that day :

  1. Question everything!
  2. Why walk when you can run?
  3. Be amazed by everything, even if it’s just a tiny, little pebble.
  4. Laugh as loud as you possibly can, whenever you possibly can!
  5. Make new friends wherever you go.
  6. Speak your truth! Don’t be shy to say how you feel.
  7. Take an extra minute to notice the little things.
  8. Be fearless!
  9. Smile at everyone you meet.
  10. Always have snacks with you 😉

Merci Raphaël d’avoir été notre guide au zoo la semaine dernière. On a beaucoup apprécié ton énergie et ta sagesse 🙂


This is what I know

This is what I know.

Sometimes, you read a book or an article that feels like it was written just for you. Sometimes, you watch a television show or a movie that really hits home. Sometimes, a random conversation or a chance encounter can completely turn you around. Read More


Book review 3 : Authenticity

One snowy afternoon in February, I ventured into my local bookstore looking to get lost and this book was on the table near the front door. Now I don’t normally choose books without doing a little research first (especially personal development books), but I’m glad that I made an exception for this one. Read More




Happier and Healthier

My goddaughter turned two yesterday which means Karmic Sweets turned one. It’s hard to imagine that it’s already been a year, but it also seems to have gone by quite fast. In one year, I made 34 cakes, 389 cupcakes and 938 mini cupcakes. I guess that’s a good start! Read More
