I'm Marie, and I cry every time I watch Up with my little boy.
(Yip. Every single time.)
I'm a self-taught designer, calligrapher and educator who likes to live in lots of different countries. I was born and raised in France's capital of gastronomy, which may explain my obsession with fine food.
I have been known to take an insane amount of photographs, I love writing lists, dancing in the kitchen and am totally obsessed with the smell of paper.
I’m mom to a toddler, a three-legged cat and a budding baby biz.
Keepin' it together with coffee, cuddles and killer playlists.
And wine. Definitely wine too.
After wandering around Europe and the Middle East, I settled in sunny South Africa because I fell in love with both the boy (now turned husband) and his beautiful home country. We've just packed our bags again and are now resting our heads in Zambia. I miss my dear Europe every single day of my life but trust me when I say there is no place like Africa. Just go re-watch the intro to The Lion King real quick and if it doesn't give you goose bumps then we can't be friends.
I always felt like I'd enjoy life a lot more working with people I choose and who choose me (i.e. a tribe of slightly quirky and creative souls), rather than roam the roads of the corporate world.
And you know what? It turns out I was right.
All I needed to take the plunge was a positive pregnancy test and the most supportive hubby on the planet.
