Summer Travel











As I write this I'm spending some time in Portugal to celebrate a sculpture project my husband has been working on for the past 2 years. This weekend is the start of Portugal's first ever Art Biennial. I can't tell you how impressive the work that my husband and his partner created for it, and I look forward to sharing many photos with you when I'm back home. In the meantime, I thought I'd share some photos of our family vacation from last summer in Portugal. Lyla was only 4 months old and it was such a perfect time to travel with her (she's the little bean on the sofa). We were here for almost a month, rented a car and traveled along the coast. Portugal is a lovely country with kind people and incredible scenery with some of the most amazing castles, enchanted forests, and small villages I've ever seen in all of my travels.

I hope you all are enjoying your summer and that you, too, get to have some down time.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I went there when I was very small, seeing your pictures makes me want to go back! The picture of the man holding a fish in each hand is quite amusing.

Oh, my beloved PT! When I look at the picture of azulejo in Obidos, church in Tomar, and farol in Cabo da Roca I feel like crying. Please try caldeirada do peixe if you have opportunity, you won’t regret it! Here in Ca one can only dream about such a perfect dish.

I cannot wait to see this ceramic masterpiece! And am also v. jealous that you are drinking rosé in a bar alone and drunk emailing/tweeting.

One day I too will have that again. I can only hope.
