Iced coffee with cardamom

I refuse to acknowledge that summer is nearly over. Even when it is cloudy and cold outside we make ourselves a cup of iced coffee to make it go away. I have a feeling it's thanks to us that good weather keeps coming back, it's the coffee, I know it! 
To spice things up a bit we added some ground cardamom to our regular brew and thanks to its unique aroma it turned out really delicious. But if you're not a fan you can use any other spice that inspires you, cinnamon, ginger, cloves or even anise if you like it.

What you need:

2 shots of freshly ground coffee
1/2 tsp freshly ground cardamom
ice cubes
almond or regular milk
agave nectar of brown sugar

Prepare the coffee, you can use french press, moka pot or coffee machine, in all three cases mix coffee with ground cardamom before brewing. Pour coffee into glasses and sweeten to taste, add cold milk and fill up with ice cubes. It's that easy! Enjoy!

Getting the hang of it

It has already been over 3 weeks since Lara was born. Time sure flies fast! We're getting used to this new and exciting situation pretty easily I might say. Obviously there are moments when both of us feel tired after a night of countless cries for food or a diaper change but in the end Lara's one little smile gives us all the energy we need to go on. It really is amazing!
Before she was born we promised ourselves that we would try as hard as possible to continue living our lives the way we used to and treat Lara as an extra companion in our everyday endeavours. Below is a little glimpse into our recent little walks around town. The baby wrap is absolutely ingenious and makes carrying Lara a pleasure.

Lara's nursery

Finally, after several months of renovation, we can show you some bits and pieces of our new home. Obviously, we're starting with Lara's nursery because it's the prettiest room in the flat. We're very proud of it especially that we totally improvised. We knew we don't want pink and we knew we must be careful not to make this room look too boyish. And... not to brag but apart from both beds we had the pleasure of making, painting, printing and sewing everything else. We absolutely love how it turned out! A perfect little corner for our future explorer. 

thank you aunt Karo :*

Little family photo shoot

Time flies like crazy and Lara is almost two weeks, we had to capture the four of us when she's this tiny. Of course, we couldn't forget about Ginger. She's been nothing but super cool with the whole new baby situation.
