Give me roasted brussels sprouts and I’ll eat them by the pounds. I toss them with olive oil, salt, minced rosemary and garlic and let the oven do the magic.💫

Amazing brunch 🤤

Sometimes happiness just come from a small neighborhood bakery in the least expected for delicious bread. These colorful buns that I found sent me straight to my happy childhood when I was five or six.
Waiting for my mom to come home from her morning routine to the wet market was one of my favorite things to do. I was always the 1st one screaming “mommy is home...”, then quickly check her shopping basket to find out if she bought any desserts for us besides the fish, meat and vegetables to cook for our daily meals. These colorful buns was what I usually found, and I love it so much, not because of the taste but they were just lovely and colorful to me.
She very rarely not buy anything for her little girl each morning as she does not want to disappoint her foodie daughter.
And now I feel the same to my sons, but instead of checking my bags, they are checking out the fridge everyday.

🇮🇹La stagione delle peonie, delle erbe spontanee e delle arance tardive, le più dolci. (E degli asparagi, le fave, i piselli, i cipollotti e le fragole). Ora però basta pioggia è! Crostate salate con brisée all’olio evo di farina di grani antichi teneri, semola di grani antichi duri (tutto #Floriddia) e nocciole, aromatizzata con zesta d’arancia e timo, ripiena di erbette, spinaci selvatici, ortiche, aglio fresco e toma valdostana. Le erbe le ho scottate e ripassate in padella in olio aromatizzato all’aglio e al peperoncino, poi ho aggiunto il gambo di un aglio fresco tagliato sottile. I tocchetti di toma, prima di utilizzarli, li ho lasciati insaporire nella zesta di un’arancia e tanto timo fresco, per qualche ora. Buona giornata! 🇬🇧Thyme and orange scented olive oil #savoury tarts (made with old varieties of wheat and durum semolina), filled with spontaneous herbs and toma cheese. #enjoy!

So I’m trying a new strategy to keep some of my money out of the hands of Door Dash. Nope, I didn’t cook at all last week. Partly because of Door Dash and partly because the hubby cooked a couple meals 🙌! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have I mentioned being a working mom with two littles is hard? I’m exhausted! But, I’m complaining with gratitude because we have a lot of help between our nanny and family and I don’t take that for granted! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today was supposed to be our new weekly Taco Tuesday night, but hubby had a man date so I kept it simple with the kids and then I threw this most random faux taco salad together. The only thing that made it a taco salad is the fact it had pico de gallo, avocado, and cilantro in it, mmmkay? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

But this was such a happy accident! I didn’t want to exert a lot of energy, so I started off thinking I was just going to fry up a couple eggs with turkey bacon... ask me another day about eating a whole bag of cooked pork bacon from Costco over a week-ish! 😬 Hence embracing turkey bacon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I tore up some romaine, fried up the turkey bacon first, then the eggs, then some leftover baby portabellos. Make sure to fry the bacon first so that when you follow frying the eggs and mushrooms, it picks up some of that bacon goodness. Omg how many times can I say bacon in this post 😂?? Whatever, bacon makes me happy! Moving on... ⠀⠀

Added the pico de gallo, avocado, and cilantro. And it took aaaaall my might and will power not to smother this with sour cream (just kidding, I totally did), and of course Tapatio. ⠀

You guys, this was so damn good and took me less than 10 minutes! You’re welcome! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Can you tell I’m tired as hell and snarky and delirious? All of that. 🤪 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

P.S. Bacon. 🥓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •
P.P.S. One day I’ll blog again. Today is not that day people.

He got his UNO cards daddy @johnfrederickgonzalez !! He had p225 & his sister Zara shared her p25. Super enough! They are so happy! I love that my kids are very appreciative & always grateful. Praying for more wisdom from God for our parenting. We are just starting. More years to come. ❤️ #simplejoys #momlife #parentingtwo #unocards #zachyboy #godsgift #sevenyearoldson #obedient #blessing #usanimalskid #usanimals

Running around town like a mad woman today. Little miss is going on camp next week and do you think I can find gumboots in her size anywhere? Nope. But this beauty caught my eye as I was racing back to the car and reminded me to stop and take a breath. I love how nature does that. Reminds us to just pause even if its just for a moment. 🌿 #justbreathe

I never imagined having two boys five years apart from different daddies, but oh the immense joy overflowing out of my heart with gratefulness for our redemption story. 🙏🏼Completely shocking my heart on the daily 💙🖤 There’s definitely room for one more. 🤫 If you’re a single parent or someone who has gone through grief in a relationship or has lost a significant other or spouse, or has died to a dream you had for your family, don’t let your heart be troubled, for God sees you, He knows your pain, and is right in the midst of it all walking each step with you. #trustinHim #mamaskeepinitreal

I hope Jax forgives us when he starts to learn to write his name. You see originally he had one middle name, Fabian. For obvious reasons it’s a family name. It’s my husband’s middle name and Jax’s abuelo’s name.
👦🏻
In a last minute decision at the hospital we added one more name, Fernando. That’s his papi’s first name. Jax carries the legacy of the Vera men in his name.
📝
Jax Fernando Fabian Vera is a mouthful but it rolls off the tongue nicely. I cannot wait for the day I see it written in crayon. #whatsinaname

After a long day of sorting, organizing, packing and moving it was a pleasure to take a moment and partake in the simple chore of ironing. There can be something calming and almost meditative about ironing beautiful pieces of clothes. Taking the time to enjoy the feel of the fabric, the small details of embroidery and lace and wondering what kind of woman may have loved them prior. .

I keep getting texts from my family and friends to send pictures of Singapore! But the truth is there is nothing glamorous (or easy) about apartment hunting in another Country. And that is quite literally, all we done since I arrived.

Tears have fallen and emotional eating has occurred while wondering how the heck I’m going to entertain a 15 month old all day in 700 sq ft of space with no car and only public transportation. Before the comments start...I realize it isn’t the worst situation. Not by a long shot. It’s just a big scary change for this OCD and overly anxious first time momma. So while it continues to monsoon outside for the third day in a row, I straightened my hair for the first time in about 6 months and am enjoying doing absolutely nothing. If you’re a momma this book is a must read and honestly couldn’t have come at a better time for me. It’s all about perspective and truthfully I’m in need of a huge dose of it at the moment.

Vigo will always have a very special place in my heart. Sometimes I can barely believe it's been almost six years since I lived my most carefree existence on the Atlantic coast of Spain. My life is so different now, but I'm still me, still inspired by travel, new experiences, crosscultural understanding, and language. I think back on the Sarah in this photo fondly. When I think about her, I remember about how happy she felt. How well she knew herself and how she learned to make decisions based on her joy. Lately it's felt a bit more difficult, but I still believe that to follow joy is the most important thing of all ✨

This I treasure. An eight-year-old's depiction of her mother, with a bit of creative license and a whole lot of love.
