We are baking something until January!!!

As you have probably noticed, I got fatter on all three dimensions of space and we haven’t uploadedĀ a wine review in a while now. Well, before you jump to any conclusions, it is quite obvious we can not hide the truth anymore as apparently I am one of those women that show from the very beginning. WE ARE EXPECTING A LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY IN JANUARY! Which means that I am now 14 weeks pregnant. Despite the fact that we do have a blog, where we tend to share most of our lives, this is one aspect that we really wanted to keep a secret for as long as possible, but apparently having a small waist has it’s disadvantages as I am really showing and have been showing since week 12, but luckily for me, D is a great photographer and we have been able to kinda hide it for almost two weeks.

I have no idea why we were so keen on keeping this a secret, maybe it’s because we are so very excited and happy about it that is was our way of being selfish. I was even very torn about using this featured image for this post, but I consider you, our readers as part of our family and I thought that it was a good idea to show you what our bundle of joy looks like thus far. This does not mean that this blog will turn into one of those kids orientated blogs, as we are going to keep on doing what we do, but I will write a few posts here and there about pregnancy and, now that I’ve survived the first trimester, I will do a post on that, as everyone tends to avoid that period in all the posts I’ve read so far on the subject.

What more is there to say on the subject… Well we are way beyond happy about this little miracle that we have created and I really do hope that my pregnancy will be an easy one. More details about my wonderful experience so far, next week!

L. & D.


Since today is the 1st of June, therefore being the International Children’s Day, we’ve decided to introduce to you our child…for now, our dog is our official child, but we hope that someday we’ll expand our little family.


She has various names simply because we can’t really decide on one, but most of the time we call herĀ Shtuli. She’s the warmest most loving dog we’ve ever met. She was born the year D and I met (7 years old) and she first entered the world on the same date as D, only 25 years later. We’ve had her for the last three years and the way she got into our lives is quite funny. I guess we can say she fought her way into our family.


She was born at our countryside house and she grew up among 8 other dogs. At some point in her life, when she was about four years old, she decided she didn’t like her friends anymore so she started fighting with them. We decided to adopt her, as she was D‘s favourite doggie and because I literally can’t live without an animal in my life. As soon as she entered our lives, we couldn’t imagine how we lived without her thus far. Each summer she is reunited with her childhood friends for a month as we take her back to the countryside, because most of August my parents stay there.


She is extremely lovable and warm with us, but she’s extremely shy with everyone else. Because of that, all our daily walks need to be at odd hours, either when everyone is sleeping or at work.
Shtuli is our absolute best friend and we consider her to be our child, so today it’s all about her!
