An iconic dream of ‘Plus Belle la Vie’ is to fall in love in
Paris and remain there as an artist or writer. Here's
 
how advertising copywriter, Janice Macleod, realizedthat dream that hundreds of millions share:She pared her life down to a suitcase, saved-up two-
year’s worth of dough, bid adieu to the corporatecubicle…then left LA to renew life in Europe. In Parisshe met ‘lovely’ Christophe in a café.
 With cupid playing her heartstrings like a Rock 
Band…she continued on to Florence and Rome as
planned. And while mailing her illustrated travel lettersto friends.When she returned to Paris to resume lip-locking withChristophe--they became engaged, and her beautifullycrafted letters became her successful biz.Today, Janice has subscribers from around the globe,
and says, “If we all just look at what we have at hand, we
can find clues that lead us in the direction of our
dreams.”
 
Janice, thanks so much for answering this modifiedProust Questionnaire.
 
What’s your present state?
 Happy stress from finishing my memoir about how I left the fast lane for a slow stroll in Paris and startedpainting the Paris Letters. It's called Paris Letters and isdue to the publisher next month. Eek!
 
You do so much with style and ease. Any timemanagement tips?
Do a little bit each day but don't tryto do it all. Some days I just work on my Etsy shop,other days I blog, other days I write. I used to beat myself up if I did two things but not three. Now, I just work on whatever didn't happen today--tomorrow. Andhonestly, my mind would feel too scattered if I workedon everything a little bit each day.
What’s the basic difference between living in Paris
versus LA?
In Paris, people don't care about everythinggetting bigger and better like they do in LA. If I had acafé in Paris, it would be a café and that would be goodenough. If that café were in Los Angeles, I'd likely aimfor adding an online shop, a reality show and book of recipes. I prefer the French point-of-view. They insist onmore time with family and refuse to spend as much timein traffic.
What is your favorite virtue?
Inner peace.
Your chief characteristic?
Creativity.
What one memory from your entire life would youchoose to live with through eternity?
There was anapple tree in my backyard when I was a kid. In spring,when a wind came by, the blossoms would rain down. Iwould twirl under the tree and look up as the petals fellon my face and in my hair.
