Old Cars in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, the yearly PRESTIGE event

Bienvenue! Welcome to the yearly event on the stunning Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula.

I went live on my Facebook page to show some beautiful old ladies!
This is one of my favorite events and it really makes it a privilege to live on the Côte D’Azur. Here is the little video.


A bientôt!

Do you feel like a French quote? Or an inspirational quote translated in French to learn the language?
I just discovered Danielle LaPorte is in Antibes (I follow her on Instagram here) and it triggered this.
It’s kind of funny… knowing that someone-who-inspires-you-is-geographically-closer suddenly is a reminder to live fully. I mean, it’s not like I am having a conversation with her right now, or seeing her more than when she is in Vancouver…

French Quote For Inspiration

Anyways, I’ve been wanting to unfold more inspiration. And I figure if I translate the quotes, you might enjoy them also and/or learn some French. Therefore I will be sharing French quotes in the next 30 days.  There will be some of classical French authors and others of amazing contemporary human beings. And you can catch these on Instagram, in the FB group or here in the blog.

Please feel free to share your favorite quote (and even French quote) in the comments below or via social media. Let me know which one caught your eye lately or has been a longtime favorite.

I guess I’m trying to tell a story. Because I would love you to know it. And because I would love to know yours.  My story is about being a mom, a freelancer and a pilgrim of the human soul. For the moment I just don’t know how to say it better.

Translating is often also betraying a subtlety. Or it’s leaving behind a part that the translator’s soul just can’t grasp of the original, so please bare with me.

On the other hand, this is eFrenchCafe’s unapologetic perfectly imperfect version of one of Danielle LaPorte’s #truthbombs.

And are you wondering how to say “quote” in French? We say “citation” /see-tah-see-oñ/.

And with that, I’m sending you plenty of
Bisous and gratitude from Nice, France
And if you’re learning French – you’ve got this. Keep going.
