Black tea & laughter!


Having a longer weekend is like taking a small vacation:

  • you wake up late every morning with sun in your eyes ‘n black tea in your cup,black tea
  • you tidy up the house and cook for him while he plants a million flowers in the garden ❤ can’t wait for them to blossom in may, just before the wedding,
  • you take a long walk downtown, on foot this time because the weather is just perfect,
  • you drink a cappuccino in the park and walk holding hands through the colorful leaves that cover the streets,
  • you cuddle and have a glass of wine while watching a comedy
  • you make time for some shopping, you visit your parents and talk about the wedding,
  • you spend time with your bridesmaid, drink, laugh and watch wedding shows while he plays football with the groomsmen 😀
  • you take a sketch of your future living room and talk to designers
  • you kiss, you hold hands and you love each other!

Romanian traditional dinner


My aunt came to visit us, all the way from Italy 🙂 so I hosted a welcome back dinner at our house – a traditional one with only homemade dishes like:

  • chocolate cake with ice cream frosting (present for my grandma – she turned 80 :D),
  • Alaska fillet with a crunchy crust of nuts and herbs from our garden, with cherry tomatoes and slices of zucchini and seasoned with brine,
  • a special mix of lemonade,
  • a romanian antipasti platter,
  • a made up recipe of pie with pancakes instead of dough and
  • a dessert made from all the fruits in the kitchen, chocolate pudding, ice cream, caramelize bananas and whipped cream 🙂

ImageWe had such a great time, all the family together – and as a surprise, my aunt gave us as a housewarming gift, a set that was in her family for ages 🙂 we were speechless!
