You can’t always see me. You can’t always hear me. Sometimes you can’t even feel me. But I am here.
Growing up in Europe, my taste buds are substantially different. I recognized that the same day we arrived to the United States. I also realized, right then and there, that all foods are not created equal. Which is why, to this day, I continuously strive to bring the flavors of Europe into my home. Although I have learned to love American food, European standards are different; which makes their flavors richer. Especially 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
As a woman, there are so many things I dislike about myself. I am constantly nitpicking at my features and criticizing my body. And even though, I am working on being better to myself, it’s a daily struggle. A struggle that I sometimes win and sometimes loose.
When it comes to pajamas, cotton is all we wear. As a kid, I witnessed my dads sever allergic reaction to anything other than cotton. Watching him breakout in hives whenever he put on any article of clothing that wasn’t cotton, was hard. My mom really went out of her way and tried her best to make sure we ALL wore cotton clothing as much as possible. But believe it or not, that was harder than you would think. Almost everything these days is made with mixed textiles.
