Happy Monday

Hi friends! I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend. Ours was very domestic. We went out on Saturday to do some errands, took Piki with us, and came back early. Then a dear friend of ours came over, and we cooked dinner. I made risotto, it was my first time making risotto, because I was honestly very intimated by the involved process, but it turned out delicious. You have to start with good ingredients. We got our shrimp from the Potomac fish market, the asparagus from the greens market, and the block of aged parmesan from Whole Foods. My friend brought this amazing French white wine. It was delicious. Next time I will remember to take pictures.  Sorry!

On Sunday we stayed home the whole day doing basically nothing. Even Emilu slept in (until 9:30 a.m.!)I also cleaned and re-organized my bookshelves and did some DIY projects which I will show you this week. We also discovered that our baby, who's not such a baby anymore, recognizes us in pictures. She points, babbles, and says papapapapa when she holds a picture of us together. That really made my day!
