The little pink cafe.
Story time: This cafe reminds me of the story The Little House, where the city was built up higher and the little house remained (but eventually relocated to a small hill in the countryside with a little apple tree out front).
When we lived in DC, there was an actual little house, and eventually the developers won and bought out the elderly owner who lived there (and would have preferred to stay put). I think all of DC shed a tear when that little house was torn down. So, imagine my surprise when I found this pink cafe, still standing among its Mayfair giants. A story with a happy ending!
Oh Christmas tree 🌟
Total accident matching the girls pyjamas so had to get a picture of them. Sophia is wearing a vintage pair that Rose had for her 1st birthday. We love a good hand me down here! Feeling a bit rubbish today, Rose was up in the night with a cough so she’s off pre-school and the gloomy weather in general isn’t a fabulous mood booster. Sprinkle some pregnancy hormones on top and spirits aren’t so bright 😂🙈 looking forward to Ben getting home to cheer us all up!

We partnered with Nutella to share a “Nu” family tradition this holiday season!
We love baking together, so we took on these @nutellaca mini tiramisu! We mixed the old and new traditions and used these dessert cups from my Nonna, who’s no longer with us, and always had Nutella in her house for the grandchildren to enjoy! Safe to say we made her proud with our desserts!
Check out my stories to see how easy they were to put together! (Frankie is pretty much an expert now!) and swipe for the finished product and full recipe! #Nutella Ambassador #NutellaHoliday

Heading out to this breathtaking world!! ❄️❄️❄️ “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ~ Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass #HudsonValley#I ❤️NY #FromWhereIStand#nofilter
The beautiful Retrosaria Bijou opened in 1915 and still retains its rare Art Nouveau, Rococo facade from its former owner. 💙 This little Haberdashery is one of many on the Rua da Conceição, famed for this specialty. 📷: @toplisbonphoto
《I colli, i campi, i paesini e le case vecchie. Due carabinieri che accettano una tazzina di caffè da una signora che glieli porge dalla finestra. Istanti come quelli dei cerbiatti al limitare del bosco. Momenti sacri.》🍃
Tra le cose che non hanno prezzo - o, anche se ce l'hanno, questo conta relativamente - ci sono tutti quegli istanti nei quali si incappa più o meno per caso e che lasciano traccia di sé nei ricordi.
Don’t tell me the first thing you don’t notice is that hambone belly and cheeks for days. You can look, but you can’t touch. It’s all mine 😍😍
