Back in Business

Days go by much faster since there’s 4 of us. I have been thinking if I should delete this blog or keep it for my daughters to have a laugh when they’re older. Looking back at the written articles makes me feel old and oh my, how much we have learned since the first post. Time spent with my daughters is the Best Kind of time, so I decided to keep a little journal of our adventures together, who knows, I might have some ideas that others might find helpful. But this time, I have back-up, my 4 year old daughter H. Well soon to be 4…this summer she is still my threenager! 

Summer time, our favorite (I love autumn, but that’s a secret) helped our Little garden grow bigger. This year we managed to harvest so many greens that every dinner has pesto 😐 and every breakfast has tomatos. The last year ruccola plants have multimillionmultiplied and we don’t have enough family members to eat it. And probably All the houses from our street will have ruccola salad tonight. But this made me think that sharing is indeed caring. Even if we did not receive anything back, it made us feel Good. My girls are learning to share and by planting they learn that nature is everything… and so is love. So I tell my girls this:

Give. But don’t allow yourself be used

Love. But don’t allow yourself to be abused

Trust. But don’t be naive

Listen. But don’t lose your own voice

And because all that gardening and playing outside in the pool got us tired, I prepared a very fresh summer smoothie, green as we like it. Easy: 

  1. Handful Fresh spinach
  2. 2-3 slices of melon
  3. 2-3 cubes of Mango 
  4. 4 leaves of fresh mint
  5. Half cup Soy yogurt (you can also add apple juice)
  6. Ice cubes 

Sprinkle some Chia seeds and voila! Fresh mama 👌
