Midlife Wisdom and Paris

Two thoughts are before me this fine day.
Midlife and Paris.
How fun is that?

Midlife Wisdom

I am changing my tune and mixing it up a bit over @ B-Well.
I have a lot on my mind and it is about wellness...in midlife.
Am I having a midlife crisis? Who knows?
I like to think of it as one of the wonderful stages of life.
Even better, one of the many stages of ageing gracefully.
Sounds better to me :)

If you need to get your groove back or just keep it, come join me.
It is going to be my source of inspiration where I write about health, 
wellbeing, beauty, fashion and more. Basically, whatever it takes
for this Midlife Mama to get her groove back.

and on a lighter note...


My sweet seventeen year old, Claire and I are 
off on a Mother and Daughter adventure to Paris. 

She wants to see the Eiffel Tower and sample french pastry
I want her to fall in love with Paris and I have three days
 to complete my mission. 

Wish me luck!

:) :) :)

  4. I wish you the best of luck...and Paris with your daughter...how wonderful.
    I think I'll start following B-Well...
    I am 55

  5. Have a wonderful time in Paris with Claire!!!

  6. Mother/daughter vacations are very special. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!
    ps...and post lots of pictures...I have not been to Paris YET!!!

  7. Have a great time. My friend is going on a mother-daughter trip to Paris as well in just two days. I'm very jelaous of all of you:-)

  8. Mother daughter trips are wonderful! I'll always remember fondly the ones I had with my mom. Have a wonderful time!!!

  9. I will be checking out your B-Well report because I have been in a mid life crisis since I was 20!!!

    Have a wonderful lovely time in Paris. And I will don my green face of envy while you are there!

    Cheers Jeanne!


  10. I am pretty sure Paris is not a place I'll ever see in my life.
    sounds lovely though and what a fun thing for you and your daughter to do.

    I am 59, certainly interested in well-being. I am a little 'panicky' about turning 60 next year. kinda frightening, not because of the AGE
    but because I'm 'not there yet' with myself

  11. Have a great time! Ahh, Paris. How fun the two of you are going ;)

  12. Three days should be more than enough time to accomplish that particular goal! Have fun!

  13. I love everything about this post. The painting is super fun and full of life... and Ahhh, midlife, I'm loving it!! And I don't think you need to worry about your daughter getting into Paris ;) have fun on your one-of-many journey!!

  14. Dear Jeanne,
    I on't think that you will need much luck on your mission....Paris sells itself !! She will fall in love with it like the rest of us.
    Have a lovely mum and daughter time. XXXX

  15. Oh I'd love to go to Paris with my daughter.

  16. Paris sounds awesome to me :)

  17. You do THE neatest things!! I know of so many people who have gone there lately...my next door neighbor among them. She had a ball! Hope you do too!! I'm jealous.

  18. What fun to do this with your daughter!


  19. Seventeen and Paris - who needs luck! I had a weekend in Paris with my grownup daughter a while ago. It was heaven! Did a bit of shopping, went to the ballet and gawped at Chagall's lovely ceiling, wandered round an enormous flea market on Sunday morning, (a bit more shopping!)
    Have a lovely time and do tell us all about it when you return home. (I want to see what you've bought.)

  20. Hi Jeanne, what a fabulous place to visit with your daughter, I hope you both have a wonderful time.

  21. Lucky you two. Wishing you a wonderful time. Huzz and are trying to plan a little getaway to Paris sometime soon. So long since I visited.

  22. Dear Jeanne,
    I haven't even met you in person and you have made me love Paris even more than I do.
    Enjoy Paris and your sweet daughter!

  23. Thanks for this lovely post. I hope you have a fantastic trip. I am in my 30's and my mom and I STILL take trips like this. I can't wait to hear how it went!

  24. Have the best time :)

    Much love,

    K xx

  25. both are great places to be!! have a fabulous time in paris {if you want a great place to stay near the tower, let me know and i'll send you the link!}}


  26. Oh Jeanne, I swear we lead similar lives at different times! One of my daughters loves all things French and is fluent in the language. Her first trip to Paris was at the same age of your daughter. We've been back a couple of times since and we're talking about another French adventure in June. Have a wonderful adventure!
    I think I have passed midlife ( at least I hope so) and these days I feel no pressure. I just live each day as it comes and two of those involve yoga.
