# This is my favorite corner in our house: the relaxing area in the
 kitchen. At this spot I have a beautiful view over the water and I love 
to sit here while nourishing my little babygirl.  This is also the place where we
 often socialize and chat with our  friends or where we love to read. 
I just remembered that this is the place where I took my very first 
instagram photo 2 years ago. #
