Time after time….

Time after time….

I have been away for a long time. I am sorry. Life got so busy and hectic, with family and work and I neglected all of you. So today we are back, it’s almost “Rosh Hashanah”, the Jewish New Year and I am filled with new ideas, dreams, plans and recipies. New Year resolution: Smiling even to the strangers on the street (who never smile back) Being (honestly) grateful for what we have, with no …

All about a healthy start

All about a healthy start

An apple a day keeps the doctor away…. The school year has started in the most wonderful way. We wanted to start with a healthy helpful note, and had organized a “pick it yourself” outdoor activity with the kids. Almost 50 kg of Belgian apples and pears were picked from the trees. Local fresh harvest helps everyone. It was pure happiness to find this activity possible so close to Antwerp…. If you would like to …

We are leaving the sea on the way to Lonato next to Garda Lake. We had a wonderful recommendation from friends who had their marriage party and more happy events at a wonderful agriturismo. I like this concept, where trees are filled with generosity for us to taste, help, pick and assist in harvest, clean up or just appetite. Eroma= Amore in mirror is this haven. EROMA NATURALMENTE Via Civetta 2, 25017 Lonato del Garda …

Rainy days. I was so proud I packed light. all 4 of us in one suitcase with all the linen inside. But who thought I should have taken some winter pieces too? Luckily I had a few long sleeve t’s for the kids, one long trousers and a pair of sneakers. Last year all we had needed were our badthingsuits. for a whole week… It was an opportunity to buy the kids a few new …

On the way from Verona to Pesaro, as it started raining again, we decided to be spontaneous and drive to Padova. We hav never been, and it is very close to Verona so we decided to go. With the help of our dear Eo, we had some recommendations for coffee and food. I wish I had more photos to share but D erased with the updating the Iphones and the computer ALL his 860 photos …

Ciao Bambino part 1

Italy. We love the language, the nature, the wine, the olive oil, the simplicity, the value of the ‘famiglia’, the opportunity to meet wonderful people on the way. So we went back again. This year we had planed to meet with our Nona and Nono (Sabubi) in Italy but it was canceled due the war back home. On this note I want to join in hope for a better future of the region and pray …

Say less, Make more

Say less, Make more

I have been absent for a while. I am sorry. The last weeks have been very full with joyful and unforgettable family gatherings, private shared moments of friends of all ages finding time to celebrate life. I thought to share a small capture of visuals, which may not transfer the smell and taste, but this is as good as it gets. I was told this week that I have very high expectations. Of myself primarily, …

Free….

Free….

Freedom. Are we free or are we dumb? We try to be independent, not influenced by others and matters, free of tags and guilt, but how much is really true? Sometimes I am free and sometimes I am dumb. When I am free I make dumb choices, and when I am dumb I am free to come back to my senses. In the preparation of a big event we hosted last week, I felt free …

Quality

Quality

We have this thing in our family with quality. Since I remember, and I can still hear my late beloved grandmother’s voice determinately saying “It’s quality!”, no matter what it is, always choose for quality. Better less but best. When buying shoes, books, clothes, a toy, sheets, a machine for the garden, a knife or any other purchase, aim for the best, if you can’t, I believe it’s better to wait and buy it another …

What is it all about

What is it all about

I have had some demands, requests and questions over what exactly is it that I do, create, cook, make and try to give people who contact Habaita. To start with, I believe that who we are is defined by how much we love, others but also ourselves. A part of a package deal with sleep, exercise, general health and my focus, nutrition and food. Every bite, every sip we take have a direct affect on …
