I am and have always been an eager reader. I think I learned to read before I could walk, and I have been swallowing book after book since I can remember.

I enjoy reading pretty much anything with pages. But if I had to choose a literary genre I would choose children's literature without a doubt.

Over the years, I´ve put together a huge collection of children´s books. And I must admit that most of times I pretend I´m buying them for the boys (although then I write "Paloma" in the "this book belongs to...." page).

Life always brings the right people your way.

One way or another the right people will find you at the right time. There is supportive people that will hold your hand without asking questions. This is the people you need to keep close to you. But sometimes, you could also find the kind of people who is able to tell you what you need to hear but don´t want to. This kind of people is also good to keep. Even if we cannot see why.

I loved traveling when I was single. I loved traveling with my husband just after we were married.

“Get your traveling in now, because you won’t be able to do it once you have kids.”

I heard this statement many times while my husband and I were backpacking around the world. And, sadly, the more I heard these words, the more I started to believe them to the point that when our eldest son was born, we resigned ourselves to the idea that family and travel don’t mix.

But soon after that, I just went and impulsively booked a flight to Rome. We wanted to prove that the idea we had internalized was wrong and that our days of travel didn’t have to stop.

And oh how glad I am we did so.

I think everyone should give themselves a daily little treat. It could be anything you like.

From eating a piece of chocolate to barefoot on grass. We should do something that makes us happy everyday.

For example, I love going to the beach and look for sea glass. Or having vanilla custard for dinner. Or getting a free coffee from Waitrose.
