Getting my ducks in a row

I LOVE this saying. (What ? I’m French. I’m allowed to rave about English sayings.) But also, I don’t want to brag but I’m very, really, so good at getting my ducks in a row. That’s maybe because I always have a lot of projects. So in my life, I had to do it a bunch of times.   It often starts by buying a new notebook that is going to receive all the ideas about this project. It takes…

Networking and social anxiety

Last Sunday, we had dinner with one of the top managers of my husband’s company and his wife. Yes, having to go to this dinner seemed way too “wifey” for me, but anyway, of course I went there.

My capsule wardrobe

Since I moved from one continent to another, I had to ship most of my things. I got to keep only what could fit in two suitcases, so yeah, not that much. At the time my loved belongings left me, I didn’t know exactly when I would get them back, but I knew it could be up to three months.
