Vacation and changes

We've had a difficult couple of weeks at home lately, that's why I wasn't posting. We have an offer to change our lives completely: which means moving to another city (a seaside town) and start our own business, just the two of us. We've always thought of getting out of Buenos Aires before we have kids, but this opportunity caught us with a low guard, totally unexpected. We haven't made a decision yet, we're just so scared, weighing up the pros and cons.
Thankfully tomorrow we're going on vacation. A week by the sea will help us think clearly, I hope.
Definitely the sea is in our future: the near future for sure, and probably our distant future as well.

Argentina: Food

Here I am again, trying to show you a little bit more about my country and how we live here. I think food tells a lot about people, and in this case, a country. So, here's a recipe (thanks to lovely Rebecca!) for making our favorite sweet treat : Dulce de Leche

We basically add Dulce de Leche to anything sweet. We make alfajores (two soft buttery cookies sticked with DDL), little coconut squares, ice cream (I think Haagen Dazs sells it in the US), crêpes filled with DDL and we always use it as cake filling.
Hope you can give it a try and enjoy it as much a we do!
Besos et bon week-end!

Mirror madness.

I just love mirrors. And I can't wait to have a bigger apartment, so I can hang at least one of them somewhere: bedroom, living room, it doesn't matter. They not only make a space look bigger and brighter, but also serve as an option of wall art. Here are some samples of what I'm talking about:
