Argentina-5-42

Wether or not to add a little taste of Chili to our Argentinian adventure was a decision that I agonized over for weeks right before our trip.

Motherhood is not exactly what I expected. What did I expect? Let’s see… Something around the lines of spending hours on end staring into perfect, bright, beautiful baby eyes while contemplating the creation and meaning of life.
