When In Greece, Drink Greek Coffee!

It has been a while since I last dedicated myself to a blog post but here I am :-). Last month I was in Greece for my niece's baptism (I was the proud godmother) and it's been a fairly busy month. I must confess that I performed my duties with success in the sense that the oil covered the baby all over and I managed not to drop her, as this was my main fear!

Other than that, I enjoyed lots of Greek coffee as always, great food, family, friends and the sea. The weather was fairly good and it was a nice break from London.

At the airport... This was my new B's first trip :-)
I feel happy with a coffee and a book
Enjoying a night out with a glass of wine and lots of Greek music
And another glass...
After the wine, here comes coffee
And koulouri...
And koboloi...
And tsoureki...

Oh this sea..
Remembering the words of the Greek writer, Nikos Kazantzakis: "I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else."

Getting ready...
Relaxing after the big day by the sea.... I think I have earned my coffee!

With my cousin...
Everything blue
I hope spring is treating you all very well!!

Have a great weekend!

Happy First Day Of Spring!

Words cannot describe how much I love Spring. After a long winter (it always seems endless to me) the feeling that I get once the calendar shows 20th March is like little colorful butterflies in my stomach. I know that we have kind of a long way until the weather warms up in London but there is hope! I am lucky enough to be travelling to Greece next week and I am looking forward to soaking up some sun :-)

I still have unfinished business with my suitcases and the planning of my outfits but I will work on it this weekend. Right now, spring is calling me...

Enjoy the first day of Spring and look out for today's Solar Eclipse. Some pretty amazing things are happening in the world!!

Always fill your life with flowers, sun, smiles and hugs....lots of hugs!

Have an awesome day!
