Day 222 – New working space

Because the spirit of Holidays is felt everywhere and even at home things are starting to be a little hectic and messy, I have decided to find a place where I could work in peace for a couple of hours. I am a night person which is kind of the opposite of a morning person,

Day 221 – Writer’s block

If you know any writers, you will hear these words coming out of their mouths at least once. Wikipedia defines a  writer’s block as a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work. I slightly disagree, but also very much agree with that. Confusing right? The writer’s block I

Day 220 – The beauty of a busy day

A busy day is a day when your eyes fail to stay open, but you force them to. The beauty of a busy they is when you allow them to shut for a second and they steal your whole self on a short, dreamy journey. I am so sleep deprived that if my eyes would

Day 219 – All you need is…

Today was field trip day. Us girls embarked ourselves on a beautiful adventure, away into the hills surrounding Florence. I have been promising Ephia this trip for a while now and although our day started out like it normally does, it all shifted with a phone call. Thus, we packed a few bags and books

Day 218 – Random rambling again

We are designed to drive each other crazy. When the pressure is too high, someone gives in and someone keeps on fighting. Some fight silently, some do it so that everyone can hear them. We are bees in a really large hive and we feel happier if we get to sting instead of being stung.

Debra made some amazing penguins out of olives and cheese, some pumpkins out of mandarins and celery and Christmas hats out of brownies and strawberries.

Day 216 – Oh, my sweet Saturdays

Day 215 – And so it went…

Ah, yesterday was much more than we have planned and expected it would be. We had an amazing day and the best part was that Ephia had a great time. I am not sure if she knew it was her birthday, but this year she definitely understood everything was about her. She had a few guests

Day 214 – Another year, another story

Last year I was telling you the story about how I’ve met my daughter and tried to shape an image of our first year together. That was the year when I had to reinvent myself and recreate beauty out of nothing. This year the paths have been paved, beauty has been seeded and Ephia became one

Day 213 – Big day

Today’s post is going to be the shortest of them all. Tomorrow is a big and special day for us so we are in the midst of preparations. Ephia is turning two years old tomorrow. Balloons are invading our house and faces are being painted on them. Of course half of them ended up popping,
