Another week just passed by. Fast. Too fast. I have million things to do and if the time continues to pass with such speed I’ll never finish my ‘to do’ list!
Thanksgiving is this week. I have been looking forward to this year celebration for various reasons – I like being thankful. I […]
Eryk refuses to nap on his own recently and as a result I found myself with some mandatory downtime. This is a roundup of where […]
I like eating potatoes. I really do. They’re my ultimate comfort food and my quiet indulgence. Just think about it – is there any other food that undergoes similar transformation during cooking as potato does? It goes from unattractive, to say the least, covered with dirt bulb to golden, crispy fries, silky smooth mashed potatoes, […]
It was scary, it was spooky and now it is over. Many of you grew up with the Halloween madness but for me it is entirely new experience. We moved to US in 2009 and didn’t celebrate until few years later. I can’t really say we celebrate now but we do try to participate […]

This week I finally managed to get to our baby yoga class. It was a lot of fun, as always. Eryk was trying to sit up always when it was time to lay down. Just ignoring everything around and making his little crunches. So cute. Then when it was time for mommy (entire […]
