I’m Violaine. V. Tonic lady from Goûter. Eliana’s mom. Sun chaser extraordinaire. Lover of nature. Adventure seeker. Rebel. Dreamer. Future owner of my own farm.
I started Goûter in 2011 and it’s been my full-time gig ever since. Although Goûter is my baby, for the past few years I’ve been craving more – more learning, more getting my hands dirty, more connecting to the land, more wanting to leave this world a better place. It’s been a transitional phase, and one that’s been draining on my mental energy.
So I started writing in order to process these emotions. It’s been my creative outlet for the past 2 years and it has helped me sort through my constant mind chatter that I can’t seem to turn off.
This blog is here as a way to tell my story. We all have one. It’s important to acknowledge and bring awareness to our stories because they are the reason for where we are today. But it’s just as important to be able to release our past stories in order to learn from them and move forward, creating new stories. So this is my release.
