Joie de Vivre is French for "joy of living" or "pure enjoyment of life."

Cajuns thrive on this kind of lifestyle. It is what keeps us going through disasters, trials, and the busyness of life. This pure joy comes from within. That is our strength. We find it in the small details and in focusing on the positive perspective of every experience we walkthrough. It is about cherishing those we love and adore and making the most of the time we have together.

I have found that as I learn more about particular subjects, then the anxiety and stress I used to feel about them goes away. Here at, I focus on the following:

  • Efficiency, productivity, organization, and planning;
  • Homemaking, cooking, and interior design;
  • Culture, people, and travel;
  • Writing, publishing, marketing, and creativity;

And from time to time, I’ll talk about my faith, Jesus, and bible study.

We lack confidence when we aren’t familiar with things. I hope to share with you some of what I’ve learned so that these areas are less of a burden for you. Maybe it will even set you free to enjoy them!
