Hello | Bonjour

Hello, I'm Catherine...

This space shares my love of Paris and the French culture, the one I've had a longtime affection for, the one I married into and the one that’s now occupied by me and my little troupe of Frenchmen. It records our doings and wanderings in the city we moved to about two years ago. It is an earnest attempt to show what it feels like to live in Paris…

La Mémoire Vive means (loosely) a vivid body of memories, and was born out of my preoccupation of recording moments and seeking stories in quiet spaces and small details...and wistfully looking back.

Thank you for visiting! I would love to hear from you...


  1. Wonderful memories in a very nostalgic setting. Love your blog

  2. I think I read through almost all your blog by now. I love the photos, how simple yet sophisticated your blog is, your adventures with your boys... Love Paris! I like your writing with the photos as well. Your words are such a delight to read. Over all, I really live your blog. I hope that you'd keep posting. Wishing you all the best.

    1. Your message was the first thing I read the other morning, and it instantly made me smile! Thank you so much for your very kind words... all the best back at you :) xo
