I remember how small she was when she was born: she used to hold my finger with her whole hand.
I remember how she looked at me the first time I took her in my arms; fragile and sweet .
I am blessed not only to have a beautiful sister but also to have a best friend.
She’s got my back and I am here to catch her every time she falls.
I am so proud of this little girl who has turned into a classy, gorgeous and intelligent lady.
Happy birthday Stefi, may you have a wonderful day filled with love and joy!
I love you! ❤
I just want to take a minute and thank my landlord for having an air conditioning system in her apartment. I am not kidding when I say that I would probably melt if it wasn’t for it. But that being said, this summer has been packed with tons of activities and lovely events!
1) Finding the juiciest cherries in the world
2) Precious moments with my sister Stefi who came to visit alongside my parents and Nina
3) Recording the new album with Jimmy, this project is very personal and I am loving every step of the way
4) Late night games: my dad crushing us all in Scala 40
5) This two girls coming to visit! My mafia: Valentina and Carola. We went to school together and every time we meet is pure fun!
6) In this pic my dear friend’s Maria T wedding and next to her my fun girl Luisa! Still can’t believe this day, we had such an incredible time!
7) One word: Frappe
How’s your summer so far? Let me know! ❤
I am used to be the one who says I love you first.
I am the one who lets you know that I appreciate you. People always tell me I should not be like this because eventually others will take advantage of me (eventually they do).
Have you been backstabbed and lied to? Have you been mocked and been hurt? Do you feel like you should stop being so kind and loveable? Don’t. Please just don’t. If you do, you let them win.
Life is too short and too precious for holding back love. I think we get to spend so little time in this earth and with the people we love that is a waste of time to “hold back”.
Hold your loved ones hand. Take a good look at the people you love because believe me, they will not be there forever. Call someone, don’t just text. Be brave enough to compliment people when you see them instead of just leaving a “like” on their Facebook.
Don’t forget to let your parents, grandparents and family know how much you appreciate them and how thankful you are for the things they have done for you: remember that as you grow older so do they.
There is a special place in my heart for this city. I have childhood memories that fill my heart with joy every time I think about Thessaloniki. I came back just a couple of days ago and even though the weather was cold, my heart came back very warm from seeing my family.
As you guys can guess, I have a very big (and cool) family. In this past post you can see some more pictures. I stayed at my aunt Tasia’s home that is just above my grandmother and aunt Rena’s apartment. So I was going up and down the whole trip sharing with all of them.
I also visited my aunt Agni’s home and she cooked some delicious spaghetti that night. I shared a lovely meal with my aunt George and my cousin Leonidas (whom I love with all my heart).
We had a big and yummy family meal on Sunday and I got to see my whole family together.
I can’t tell you how happy and thankful I got to spend some time with all of them. I know my grandfather Kiriakos would be very happy is he saw us all together like this.
The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen in my life
Quick trip to the farmer’s market
My sweet yiayia
I ate siropiasta like a crazy person. I am not allowed to eat this kind of sweets due to my migraines but I made an exception just this once.
Vintage pictures of my grandparents (how stylish is the left picture??)
Amazing family meal at my cousin Babis’ house
I fell in love with these vintage brass candlesticks

Last week we went on a brief and short trip to Paris with Jimmy. My mother-in-law was going to be there with a friend for a week, so we thought it would be a fabulous opportunity to jump on plane and meet there. My brother-in-law was coming from Barcelona and we all got together for a small family reunion.
I can’t emphasize enough how much we laughed and had a very lovely (and freezing) time. Although I missed my sister Stefi so much because every street and every corner reminded me of the last time I was in Paris with her. My little travel companion.
I think this is the first time in twelve years with Jimmy that I got to share and have so much fun with his family. His mother is the sweetest person you will ever meet and his brother is absolute fun. I rarely got to see him back in Caracas but I am really happy we got to share this trip together.
