So far, but yet so close

Happy birthday to my gorgeous Mom. 

She is always there when I need her and I miss her with all my heart.

This picture was taken the day before moving to Madrid and I get really nostalgic when I see it.

We are far away but yet so close. 

May you have a wonderful birthday Manula!

I love you dearly.

Happy birthday Manula



In Greek «manula» means «mommy» and I have always called my mom like that since a little girl. Her birthday was on Tuesday but she decided to celebrate it yesterday. I made some «Marquesa de chocolate» (the Venezuelan equivalent of the German «Kalter Hund» recipe).This dessert can never go wrong on birthdays and it’s one of my mom’s favorites. She invited our neighbors that are extremely nice and fun so we laughed and had a fantastic time.  

Happy birthday Manula! I love you with all my heart!
