Special Guest

Jamie Cat Callan is the author of four French lifestyle books, including the best selling French Women Don’t Sleep Alone, Bonjour, Happiness!, Oooh, La La!, and most recently Parisian Charm School. Her books have been translated into thirty-one different languages.

Inspired by her French grandmother, Jamie has traveled to Paris many, many times, beginning in the 1970’s.  Today, she and her husband live on La Belle Farm in Upstate, New York, where they garden, bake bread and make their own brand of hard sparkling apple cider from their apple trees.

She believes in living simply, with pleasure and lots of joie de vivre. And she loves sharing her French secrets with you! You can find Jamie here.

Words by John Lewis
You are a light. You are the light. Never let anyone—any person or any force—dampen, dim or diminish your light. Study the path of others to make your way easier and more abundant. Lean toward the whispers of your own heart, discover the universal truth, and follow its dictates. […] Release the need to hate, to harbor division, and the enticement of revenge. Release all bitterness. Hold only love, only peace in your heart, knowing that the battle of good to overcome evil is already won. Choose confrontation wisely, but when it is your time don’t be afraid to stand up, speak up, and speak out against injustice. And if you follow your truth down the road to peace and the affirmation of love, if you shine like a beacon for all to see, then the poetry of all the great dreamers and philosophers is yours to manifest in a nation, a world community, and a Beloved Community that is finally at peace with itself. ―John Lewis, Across That Bridge: A Vision for Change and the Future of America
