I am not Gwyneth Paltrow, but you can read more about the inspiration behind this blog’s name here.
I am a 37-yr-old mama to two, living in southern California though my heart is split between Montreal (my hometown), Paris and New York.
Here is my mission statement.
I work full-time as a PR consultant and part-time as a writer. I also work full-time on trying to keep my marriage and family happy and I work as much-time-as-I-can on myself (my career, my health, my passions, my friendships), because I believe all this work will lead to a happier life for everyone.
My husband has been my husband for ten years and boyfriend of – gasp! – 20 years. That pretty much sums it up. We are the couple most of our friends hold up as an example of true love and happiness and on most days, I understand why.
Little D is my eight-year-old mini-me. She is a sensitive, outgoing, confident, gorgeous little tomboy who is teaching me more than any professor I have ever had – about life, parenting and myself.
Kai is my dream baby. He is five and gave us the scare of our lives in his first month on earth (you can read more on that here), but has since made up for it by being the most loving, cheerful, adorable, inspirational little guy I have ever met.
I wasn’t one of those girls who always dreamed of the perfect family, but somehow I got it.
I blog to answer the question “I don’t know how she does it.”
This is how she does it.
And this is how she does it in style.
Most of the time.
Thank you for reading!
PS – here’s the story about the time I met Gwyneth Paltrow. It’s a good one.
