My name is Barb and I am the woman behind the online boutique THE FRENCH ELEMENTS. While I will always keep The French Elements blog (so many memories), I have started a new one and I hope you will visit.
CHASING THE NEXT CHAPTER is about change. The past few months I have been thinking about writing a new blog. My youngest son passed away 7/1/2015 and life will never be the same for us. He entered Heaven and we entered a new chapter in our lives. A very different chapter that is still unfolding.
We have always talked about moving back to Europe (or elsewhere). The talk continues but we are planning on making the dream our reality.
He would be pleased.
All content found on this blog, is the property of The French Elements. I like to share with my friends. If you would like to borrow something just let me know. Please.

Try it, it helps
I have to tell you that Put On a Happy face is my new theme song.
It is so easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged.
I have been there, I know.
It is very discouraging to turn on the news and see what is going on in our own neighborhood, country and around the world.
The only thing I can control is my own attitude toward problems. I have faith but it gets tested on a regular basis. There are many setbacks but the one thing that has made a difference is the way I choose to look at life.
We are not abandoned, a promise was made years ago.
A smile can make all the difference.
I hope to visit everyone this week but if I don't make my way around, know that I am smiling.
