Summer time, life usually takes on a more relaxed vibe. Crickets and little birds grow drunk with love and the trees riot with their songs. Far far into the night, darkness mutes but does not silence them; small melodious conversations break at all hours, invisible and strangely intimate in the dead of night. Time seems to stop as though it overheard the lovemaking of strangers in the room next door. Some nights run smoothly, some others uneasy, tossing and turning in bed to make myself snug. Month number 8, this belly has blown out of proportion. and in the depths of my inner ear, echoing my own pulse, the soft, rapid beat of a baby's heart.

Second week of June.
Early summer ambiance.
Jasmine and honey suckle fragrance in the morning air.
A lighter sense of being even with a belly bump full of movement.
The sun shapes puddles of light on the floor and for us is time for a short break from work, a small vacation on the mountain for a fresh breath of sky, followed by days near the ocean. Hope you have an easy-going Sunday and a beautiful week all you out there, my sweet lovely strangers.

I've always been a chocolate lover, but especially lately that some serious cravings come knocking in random times during the day, my mom gave me the perfect cure over the phone straight from Greece, to sooth myself and treat other friends that pass by as well. Because no one says no to a soft, rich and moist chocolate cake. And no one even knows that is actually flourless and therefore gluten free. So dense and flavorful that one tiny piece will 100% satisfy you. It's the most delicious chocolate dessert I've ever made and I undoubtedly recommend it to you if you are a chocolate lover yourself! So pull up your sleeves and scroll down for the recipe ladies.
