LIFE IN PROGRESS: STOP & SMELL THE ROSES


To stop & smell the roses
It is to take time out of one's busy schedule to enjoy or appreciate the beauty of life
Whether it's a new baby or a new pregnancy, a new love status or a new job
Take time to live in the slow lane and enjoy your moment to the fullest
And that's exactly what I will be doing with my new family of five
A little of blogging, a little of Instagram, and a whole lot of hanging out with my men, tall and little
Welcome Spring.

LA PAUSE-CAFÉ: ONE DAY YOUNG


To celebrate the arrival of our new baby, here's a beautiful project from photographer Jenny Lewis called One Day Young. Gorgeous-tired-grateful mothers and their new baby getting to know each other on their first day together. Precious moments, full of mixed feelings, that we want to fully breathe in and hope to never forget. 

Pour souligner l'arrivée de notre nouveau bébé, je partage avec vous ce projet original de la photographe Jenny Lewis, intitulé One Day Young. De belles mamans fatiguées et heureuses et leurs nouveaux bébés d'un jour, qui apprennent à se connaître. Des moments précieux, remplis d'émotions mixtes, qu'on veut vivre pleinement et qu'on espère ne jamais oublier.

MAT LEAVE - TIME TO GO!



Mat Leave, when to start it?

Champagne problem yes, but still a valid topic for a working mom. It took me a few weeks (months) to finally decide when my last day at work was going to be, if I were lucky enough of course to have the choice to pick the date myself.

HOSPITAL STAY ESSENTIALS: HIS & OURS



I've been procrastinating on packing our hospital bags for a few weeks now, but a false alert last week made me grab all the essentials in less than 10 minutes like I was on a fire drill. It turned out to be a very efficient exercise and I now have something checked off my list. I must say I feel a bit more relaxed now. Thanks Baby for keeping me on track!

So this is what I packed:

FAMILY NEST AFTER TOUR: COVER HOUSE

To thank you for tagging along on all the Before Tour posts (if you've missed all the brown and lineoleum frenzy, check it out here before the spoiler below), I'd thought we'd celebrate the first post of the After Tour with a Bang!

It is the Vietnamese New Year after all so why not kick it off in style by being on the cover of the new February issue of Maison & Demeure, the french edition of the fabulous House & Home magazine!
