But first, café(s)

Although I didn’t even like the smell of coffee until college, I have since come quite a long way; nowadays I almost always have at least one cup in the morning and then often times another after lunch (and/or siesta). Now don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not a coffee snob nor addict, I justContinue reading “But first, café(s)”

Cherry Lips, Crystal Skies

How today is the first day of December, signaling that November already happened for this calendar year, is mind-boggling to me. Where did November go? Time is flying!

Not shockingly, I have really beenContinue reading “Wrapping Up September”

The Long Way Around.

Where oh where to begin? Per custom, I shall begin by looking back chronologically aka that takes us to the last week of August. In the days leading up to Labor Day (although not celebrated in Spain on the same day as in the US), I was busy running, reading, nannying sweet Dylan, working onContinue reading “The Long Way Around.”

“….what a slut time is…

she screws everybody.” “That’s the thing about pain, it demands to be felt.” – both quotes by John Green (from The Fault in Our Stars”) Happy weekend folks! I just finished reading the aforementioned novel, and I must say I basically sobbed relentlessly for the final twenty percent of the story.  I have always struggledContinue reading ““….what a slut time is…”
