      Paris is great but there is so much more to France. I hope you will stop by again.

        I do agree… 🙂 I used to live in Paris for about 8 years and we’ve been happy to move to Toulouse, “la ville rose”… 🙂 Glad to have found your awesome blog! Bonne continuation, bonne journée et amitiés toulousaines ensoleillées… à+! 🙂

        There is not anywhere in France that I have visited and did not love. Of all my travels, France is the home of my heart and I look forward to discovering and sharing much more. I am happy you have found my blogs and hope you continue to enjoy them.
        Merci beaucoup et bisous!

    I must admit I was ‘curious as a cat’ what is hiding beneath that green leaf fairy which I found on my friend’s blog, and I found out it’s a beautiful blog. Thanks for that.

    I have also nominated you for the INspiring Blooger award. Thanks for puting me onto those blogs as I have nominated them. They were fabulous and I think you’ll appreciate some of the other nominees xx Rowena

    • leamuse says:

      How sweet you are. I thought you might enjoy the blogs. As for myself, since the beginning over three years ago, I have chosen to be an award free blog/s. However, I do appreciate you kind thoughts and will check out the others. 🙂 xx Léa

        I must admit that I’ve been pretty stoked at receiving the awards. At times last year when i wasn’t getting a lot of traffic, I was a bit downcast about it all and then out of the blue received an award and a reblog and then things started looking up and when I received my annual report, i found out that people from 62 countries had visited my blog last year. That really perked me up. I imagined what a whirlwind tour it would have been for me to visit 62 countries and given I was recovering from chemo and not very mobile, it would have taken a miracle to do that in person. It has taken a bit of work to respond to the awards and I do fear leaving someone out but they do provide a way of sharing good blogs, which you can do anyway like you do, without the award. Anyway, have a wonderful weekend. Our son is going to be having ipad withdrawals as he will be out kayaking and sailing most of the weekend with scouts. Meanwhile, I’ll be editing the photos I took of kindergarten students this week. They were incredibly cute and I loved watching them draw xx Rowena

      • leamuse says:

        Ah, kayaking or ipad, no contest for me. I love to kayak! The ipad will be waiting for him. You are so correct. Blogging can open up so much. I have made some wonderful friends that I would not likely have met otherwise. xx Léa

      • roweeee says:

        I love kayaking as well…I was even out there with the broken foot. I’ve written a few posts about my kayaking adventures at Palm Beach on the Pittwater side. I’ve pasted a link and hope it works: https://beyondtheflow.wordpress.com/?s=kayak
        xx Rowena

      • leamuse says:

        It’s a bit chilly here right now but I shall be back in the water soon!

      • roweeee says:

        Where do you go kayking? The idea of kayaking in France is very appealing!!

      • leamuse says:

        Anything in France is appealing in my book. However, the beaches on the Mediterranean are just minutes from the house so it is decisions, decisions, decisions… 😉

      • roweeee says:

        Th Mediterranean always sounds so exotic and appealing although I know our water quality is a lot better. The South of France does sound very, very alluring.

      • leamuse says:

        It works for me!
