We are still waiting. Here is the daddy-to-be. Without his support and encouragement, I would not have felt so good during my pregnancy. In these moments of waiting he is my best support. He is always so thoughtful and considerate. He is there to cheer me up, and can always make me laugh. I wish laughter could induce labor.

While waiting......

While I am waiting for Miranda to come here is a little bit of antique glass from Berkeley.

I love cupcakes, especially those from Virginia Bakery on Shattuck. The last time we were there a chocolate cupcake didn´t even survive one minute before it was devoured. 

Los cupcakes son lo más delicioso que hay, sobretodo los de Virginia Bakery en Shattuck. El último que me comí no me duró ni un minuto.

Highway 1 California

For our Minimoon we took a little trip down Highway 1, from Berkeley to Big Sur, specifically to Ventana Inn. What a lovely place! The sights along the Highway are so enchanting that you do not feel the time pass.  

Para nuestra mini Luna de Miel tomamos la carretera 1 la cual va paralela a la costa del Pacífico desde San Diego hasta Canadá. Nostros la tomamos desde Berkeley para ir a Big Sur donde nos quedamos en Ventana Inn. La vista es tan espectacular que no se siente el tiempo pasar.

My favorite boutique -Tail of the Yak

Tail of the Yak is not one of my favorite stores in Berkeley; it is my absolute favorite store. I discovered it some months after I arrived here. If you come visit our wonderful city, Tail of the Yak is a MUST. You cannot come to Berkeley without experiencing this store, which has been in the Elmwood district since 1973. 

The owners are three friendly ladies who personally run the store. They have exquisite things from all over the world, ranging from paper products to beautiful antique jewelry. Everything is chosen with a strong sense of style. Entering this boutique is like entering a museum.  See for yourself.

Tail of the Yak no es una de mis tiendas favoritas en Berkeley, es absolutamente mi tienda favorita. La descubrí algunos meses después de llegar a vivir aquí. Si visitan ésta ciudad a sólo 15 minutos de San Francisco cruzando el puente (Bay Bridge), Tail of the Yak es un MUST. No pueden venir a Berkeley sin experimentar esta tienda que existe desde 1973. 

Las dueñas son tres simpáticas señoras que atienden personalmente. Tienen cosas increíbles de todas partes del mundo, desde papel hasta joyería antigua. Tienen un gusto exquisito y todo está seleccionado con mucho cuidado.
