Dear Tranquility du Jour:
1.  How did you and le beau meet?  With both of you being so busy, how do you make things work?  What are your secrets? 🙂
2. I’d love to hear any tips you might have on living in a small space.  I recently moved from my 3-bedroom house to a 1-bedroom apartment.  I’ve decluttered like crazy, but still need to do more! How do you organize your pink palace to have space for your creativity, your businesses, meditation, and not to mention yourself, le beau, le pug, and le meow?

S’il vous plaî, submit your question for consideration on a future podcast.
