“Le mieux est l'ennemi du bien” is an expression in French that roughly translates to best is the enemy of good. This has summed up my blogging experience, which began March 31st 2015.

I hit all of my targets . . .

New year, new blog!
Reading through my last blog post, all I keep thinking is… what a difference a year makes. This time last year, I was adventuring in the Maldives on a much-needed two week vacay. Now, I’m finishing the holiday period getting ready to head back into work in cold and rainy London. The new year period is always a time for reflection: on the past year, lessons learned, experiences had and life in . . .
Life: enjoy the process
It's already December 2015. As in, one month away from January 2016. Ever have the feeling that a whole year of your life just flew by, in the blink of an eye?

All of the credit goes to my husband, though, and he really hit a home run this year. Thanks to him, I have a few new London travel tips for you to . . .

This is also my first Bastille Day that I'll be celebrating since actually being French! Much like the last time I had the 4th of July off work was ten years ago, I now have two countries whose independance day festivities must be celebrated from my . . .
Weekly meal planning: update
It's Sunday evening (8:10pm, to be precise) and for the first time in weeks I feel ready to take on the upcoming week energized and not stressed out feeling that I didn't accomplish everything that I wanted to over the weekend. I think there are two types of "weekend people" -- some people use the weekend to relax, and just recuperate from a tiring work week, and some (crazy) people view the . . .
