June Festival

All set for the Festa Junina !! Look at my fake hair!!

Cold outside...

Warm and cozy inside...

Codfish with potato and brocoli


The entrance

She loved the little bag I made just for her!!!

Here down in Brazil we celebrate this month with lots of joy, dancing, eating , talking with friends, playing games... It´s called Festa Junina which is celebrated on the days of the Saints ( São João, Santo Antonio) and churches and schools everywhere open their doors for everybody to this amazing outdoor parties!!! So we went to this one near our house and we ate a lot, Camila went with her new caipira´s dress but she had to wear lots of clothes because it was really cold outside! and boots and her fake hair on the hat! She was kind of pretty!!!

And today we went to a delicious Portuguese Restaurant called Quinta do Bacalhau outside São Paulo, it´s in Caucaia do Alto, near here in a beautiful house, small but cozy. The bread is awesome with some butter or extra virgin olive oil and salt, yummy!
The codfish was kinda amazing, delicious, I love brocoli and this dish came with plenty of them!!!

Outside you´ll see a pretty corner with flowers and country styled details...
Finally the sun outside warmed my heart and it felt like a gift, it welcomed me again in this crazy world, suddenly I´m very happy.

I´ll be back here in a few days.
May your week be full of much love and gratitude, always.
I love you all!

Better days...

I confess that this weekend I had thousand of emotions in my life , good ones and not so good ones... but fortunately we are all here, safe and sound after some scary episodes in our lives , I mean living in this big city like Sao Paulo we do expect any sort of happenings...

Well, but let´s talk about good moments like Saturday when we went only Camila and I to two museums, it was great! But I believe she expected something more interesting for kids, anyway we had a quiet walk in the park near the Pinacoteca Museum and you can admire lots of art inside and outside the Museum.

Back home: we made some scones and cookies , yummy, it was tasty!!!!
