October started on a happy note, my niece A.M. was born on the first week of the month, although I’m already the proud auntie of two other adorable niece and nephew, the welcoming of a newborn baby girl in the family is with no doubt the happiest news I received lately. Also, I´m so proud of my sister F. who decided to give birth at her home with no other assistance than her doula, two extra loving and supportive friends, and obvs, her hubby. #sistapower


July August - aromasnsabores favorites

July was spent at Carro, our fishermen town at la Côte Bleue. Whilst August was in between la folie of hectic Marseille and la calme of  out-of-a-french-fairy-tale Luberon. Quite an experience for my first french holiday as a local. :)

How was your Summer?

May was such a busy month, that I hardly had time to keep up with the blog. June got better; so here are those remarkable experiences that highlighted these two months.


Stone fruits, strawberries, cherries and other summer treats appeared on early May, we took advantage of that abundance making jams. Strawberry-rhubarb, apricot-kiwi, nectarine-vanilla and even a Rhum arrangé (fruit infused rum) with nectarines, spices, and kumquats from my tree. :)

Impromptu aperitifs at mythic Cercle de St-Pierre, aka Cercle de (pêcheurs) de Carro, a members-only sort of club that has a legendary fame in Marseille region. We indulged over the best ever fried sardines and ballons de rosé.

Tuna steak, chips, sea & sun at Provençal contre le cancer by Fêtes de Carro team. Also barbec, rosé,  longue games (like Petanque but more complicated) and and sea activities to support the fight against cancer.

french strawberries

Warmer afternoons. Quelques showers and a couple of mistral-y days. Life in Provence during April was sweet.

Here the moments that made it special:

March marked our last days living in Marrakech and our move to La Côte Bleue (France). Feelings are still unsettled. With every new city we pin on our expat life map, others challenges arise. I am still struggling trying to make this place my new home, but overall life is quite pleasant over here (and to live in a home by the Mediterranean sea does help ;) ).
