Same time last year, the Husband and I had lunch for the first and only time at the Korean-Japanese restaurant, Arita in Metz, France. I’d love to say that the Husband and I are as happy as we were in May 2017, but I’m not so sure anymore. After spending a couple of days together this week, with no fights, we had a major one this morning which ended in tears. The worst part was Baby Girl storming to her room in tears asking for me to comfort her. Talk about ending the week with a bang! The Husband and I argue all the time, but lately when we fight, the words are quite violent. I hate it, but I don’t know what to do.
Hey everyone! Today is Friday and I just had an interesting day. Remember my problem of the moment? Click here if you want to know. Well, I had the « talk » today and it absolutely didn’t go like I thought it would. Pffftt .. Anyways, on a brighter note Baby Girl is coming home this evening. Finally. As much as I love this break and not working so much, I kinda miss the routine. 🤓 Also -my mind is soooo preoccupied with the communion, but I realized that I also have to think about our move. Click here for the post. That’s fast approaching and we haven’t found a place yet! Arrrghhh … too many things are going on!
Hello everyone! This week has been great. I haven’t worked a lot, but I’ve spent a lot of time with the Husband which is great. So great, especially because we haven’t argued that much. Yeahhh!!! It would be a perfect week except for the fact that Baby Girl isn’t home. It’s currently Spring Break and as usual, she is in the countryside with my French family. The Husband and I went to the countryside last Sunday to celebrate my aunt’s 80th birthday. 80 years old and still super active! I absolutely admire her. After the party, Baby Girl was supposed to come home with us, but she begged to stay a little longer. She’s coming home tomorrow afternoon and I can’t wait!
The choice for the photographer was quite easy. Since I moved to France, I’ve had the chance to meet a couple of photographers. All of them have a regular week job, while photography is more of a passion and done on the weekend. This makes me wonder if one can live comfortably off photography in France. 🤔 🤔
One-Pot Pasta. Never in my dreams I thought I would cook pasta this way! I learned to cook pasta thanks to my father and he was very traditional. Pasta had to cooked in salted boiling water until al dente, drained carefully (reserving a ladle full of pasta water to add to the sauce), and served with its delicious sauce.
I finally got the perfume I had my eyes on for the longest time. Yay, happiness! I was going back and forth for a while because I’ve also been eyeing another one, but I finally bought it. The other one will be for the summer. Hihihi 🤭🤭 Plus, there was an ongoing sale, Les French Days, and I got 30% off. Perfection.
Any break-up is tough. We’ve all been through them. You cry, you eat a little too much ice cream and chocolate, you get a horrible haircut, and you spend what little money you have left shopping for things you absolutely have no use for. Eventually, you tell yourself you’re an amazing person who deserves someone equally as amazing.
But what do you do when it comes to a friendship? Most cases people naturally drift away from each other. We blame life, work, or responsibilities. But let’s be honest if you let these things come in the way, then perhaps the friendship was just not worth it.
If ever you’re looking for a good place to have delicious French pastries, you simply must go to Maison Fresson in Metz. Located in the city center, in a pedestrian-only area, it is the perfect place to be after a day of shopping, working, or just strolling. In short, anything is a good excuse to go to Maison Fresson. 😉 😉
It’s another day which means it’s another day closer to Communion Day.
Lately, it feels like my mind has been taken over by the communion and that’s all I can think about. I am really super excited for Baby Girl. Plus, she is the only child that we have and will probably only have, so this is our first and last time to ever prepare for this day. Nothing can stop me at this point. 😆😆
