Boy, Oh Boy!

While we are in Madeira enjoying a well deserved holiday, Luca is with his grandparents enjoying the countryside. We miss him like crazy, ask for updates every chance we get and can’t wait to be back to our boy. I leave some pics here from one of our Zurich days. I will come back with an extended post on Madeira once we are back. This island stole our heart and it deserves a full travel post. Until then follow along on Insta stories.

Long weekends that leave you wanting more…

May and June are the 2 months filled with bank holidays aka days off in Switzerland. What does this mean for working people with kids? 1. That if they are lucky they can catch a few extra hours of sleep, here and there. 2. That they get to run after their kids and at the end of the long weekend they feel more tired than if they had to work. And 3. That no matter of point 1 and 2, they get to have extra family time, that will usually translate into goods memories. I managed all 3 things above (win win) and here is a list of my favourite activities to do in a long weekend:

  1. Have a long breakfast with the family.
  2. Go to the gym and enjoy a long work out. Normally I try to finish in 45 min since I am always in a hurry.
  3. Get together with our friends either for a BBQ or just hang out and catch up.
  4. Stay up late reading or watching something on Netflix. I just finished reading: First come love , by Emily Giffin.
  5. Take a day trip as a family, or if the weather is not that nice, just go for a quick bite to eat in the city or a coffee and cake at our fav coffee shop.

Late Start

Hi Luvs,

We had a rough start of the year over here. We were sick for most part of this month and the three of us managed to take care of each other somehow. We had help as well from our family and I can finally say that we are now getting back to normal. Being sick just reminded me that sometimes you need to slow down and just take a break. It might not be the perfect timing for that (is there such thing as the prefect timing to be sick?!) but staying healthy and positive is the only way forward, especially when your child is not well. Yes, experiencing our first real cold and virus with Luca got us appreciating even more what we have.

And on a happier note, today we discovered our new favourite Asian restaurant in Zurich, Lily’s Factory. We went there for a late lunch and enjoyed a family meal. Luca is now in the phase where he is trying to walk so we constantly have to walk with him. The only thing that is not very baby friendly is that they don’t offer child seats. We used the stroller to sit Luca when he was not standing up and exploring the place. You can also read a more experienced review about the place here. We give it a thumbs up and we will be stopping by soon.

Here are some pics from today. Wishing you a great week, luvs! Stay healthy and positive!

Seasonal activities

I am in love with fall especially since this year it’s filled with a lot of emotions and love. Our baby boy is due in November and until this year I was never a big fan of this month since the weather gets so grey and the days become so short. But now with a child on our way, I can’t wait to experience the new seasons. I am sure it will bring us a whole new perspective on everything. Like pumpkin season that is now in full bloom. We love the local farms in our area and we try to stop by every weekend. It is a good opportunity to spend a few hours in the fresh air while sipping your coffee and eating a piece of seasonal cake (plum tart is especially delicious this year) and also stock up on fresh farm vegetables and fruits. It reminds me so much of my childhood and home and it brings me extra joy to know that next year in Spring we will see the orchards bloom with our baby in our arms.

In the Zurich area I recommend the Jucker farms, they are a great place for families and not only. You can take a walk around the lake and just admire the view.
