francophile tote bags

Bonsoir! This is a special weekend for 2 reasons: 1) It’s my birthday tomorrow and 2) I’m now offering tote bags in the Oui In France shop!

As you know, I launched the Oui In France shop in November with 3 custom Francophile t-shirts and now I’m adding 100% organic cotton tote bags to the mix. I have 2 new designs to show you along with a special launch offer. I’m offering free worldwide shipping!

Hello there!

Tom and I spent a wonderful Thanksgiving with family in the US. It was my first Thanksgiving stateside in 6 years and Tom’s first ever!

Or maybe you get so caught up in the what-ifs and the negativity that seems to be everywhere? For as long as I can remember, taking a moment to appreciate the little things in life has always helped me to calm down, de-stress and refocus my energy. Sometimes we are so consumed with our to-do lists and the hubbub of life that we don’t take the time to see what’s right in front of us.

So I’m taking a moment to do that right here.
