• I have always loved Indian food. The rich combination of spices and herbs used in their cuisine is nothing short of mouthwatering and amazing—it awakens all my senses.

  • This past weekend was a lot of fun. Since a good friend is in town for a few days, we joined him and his girlfriend for a day well spent in Antigua...

  • This week I really struggled to get back to my normal routine. Suffering from an excruciating neck injury—which resulted in a bad inflammation, making me unable to even move my arms—all I really wanted to do was lie in bed and read all day, everyday.

  • I know that shorts aren’t very popular here in Guatemala, being a very conservative country and all, but even though I’ve been living here for four years- okay, almost five- this still baffles me.

When Bri Emery, from Design Love Fest, needed help decorating the living room of her new duplex, she quickly turned to friend and interior designer, Emily Henderson, whom she knew could deliver exactly what she was looking for. Together, they were able to create a space that was perfectly eclectic and polished, filled with color, light and different textures.


A couple of Saturdays ago, my husband and I drove down to Antigua to pay a visit to the market and run a couple of errands. We absolutely love Antigua, so whenever we have an opportunity to head down there we never, ever hesitate.


The weekends always come and go so quickly, don’t they? However, now that we can order most of our groceries through Caoba Farms, I’ve noticed that we have a lot more free time to do more of the things we love. Grocery shopping used to take us an entire afternoon to do (we used to stop at 3, sometimes 4, different stores), and now it only takes us a couple of hours- at the most.


Either at work or at home, it's always difficult for most people to control "the munchies"--and by "people," of course, I mean me. I've always been a chronic snacker, so I have to be very mindful about what and how much I eat in between meals. Now that I'm pregnant it's being a little hard to be more flexible and let myself indulge in some of my cravings, but have you heard the expression "hungry like the wolf"?


I think we can agree that spring has officially arrived here in Guatemala. Although we are blessed with spring-like temperatures mostly all year round, our chilly “winter” months have thankfully passed. Now, the sun is out to play, the flowers are blooming again, and we can take out our light and flowy dresses from the back of our closets.
