It's been a hectic week, and I am so thankful for the weekend that will allow me to get caught up and return to my daily routines.
Part of my busy-ness has been reflecting on my blog, thinking of ways to return to my original idea. Several readers commented and many emailed me; I appreciated hearing what you like to find when you visit My French Corner. In reading your comments and emails, I discovered a recurring thread: simple, simplifying, simplicity.
We like it simple, n'est-ce pas? If we can do one simple thing every day to make life a little lovelier and slightly slower, we love it. Sometimes we need ideas or a little direction, sometimes all we need is a reminder; we forget how much we joy we receive from the simple things in life.
So, inspired by readers, by my time in France, and by the Weekend Meditation that is posted every Sunday on The Kitchn, I'm launching a new series: "Week-end Simple." Every weekend I'll post an idea to try at home to help us slow down, focus on the the small and simple, and to make life a little lovelier.
