Esta es la vida!
Here I am in sunny Madrid, sitting on the beautiful roof terrace of an unbelievably cute little apartment! I just drank my lemon water and now I’m enjoying my morning coffee, made with an old-fashioned Italian Moka Express, with the music of Yann Tiersen in the background. I can’t wait until a bit later when my sweetie and I will be indulging in a delicious vegan cake. Cake? Yes! And this one is a special one since it’s my birthday week! Every year around my birthday, I take a bit of time to reflect on what’s happened in the past year and make some plans for the year to come.
And wow, how crazy has the past year been?! My career has taken off at lightning speed. I have sold more than 130 000 (!) copies of my book, I’ve opened an office to house my own practice, I’ve hired some great people, I’m in the process of putting out book number two, I’ve taken so many amazing trips in search of food inspiration and I’ve worked with such great clients. I love my life!
Now it’s May and I’m looking forward to what’s on deck for this year… Hard work, to be sure. In the coming months, I’ll be making some improvements on my website, on the 16th of May I’ll be running the Nike Run in Amsterdam with lots of other powerladies, I’ve got lots of consultations planned, there are shoots, interviews and, oh yeah, the preparations for my book launch are in full swing. My new book comes out on the 10th of June, whoopwhoop! It’s going to be so amazing. I’ll keep you posted.
It’s cake time now. Have a nice day!
