French names

 Today I read this article  about French names.  Growing up in France,  the popular names were Nathalie, Vanessa, Pascale, Aurore, Sophie, Magalie, Madeleine,Monique, Michelle, Denise, Sebastian, Stephane, Pascale, Etienne, Francois, Bernard. It is always so nice to met a Sophie or Francois in the USA ... this article made me smiled. What is your favorite French name?

Oh, I couldn't leave without sharing this . Bon appetit!


Have a great Tuesday!

Things I learnt in July

3- How productive are you and does it matter in front of God? on going conversation...

What I learned in May

I found this reflection very helpful to be close to God.  Fr Leo talks about the 5 C :content(faith), conflict( doing his will and not ours), conversation( God is in us , we are never alone), cooperation( with our Lord, I am alive in Him) and contribution( I will bring something of him into the world).  Let's write an unfinished symphony!

I always felt that baguettes are best left for the professionals( how French of me, right?) however I found this great blog with video http://karine-cuisine.blogspot.fr/2016/02/les-baguettes.html. So I tried it and

You will need a morning or afternoon.  The process is rather long but not difficult.  Also there is huge room for improvement in my design, it was a hit with the family.
