1001 hours

bolinhos de coco e mascarpone

I divide myself between the 1001 hours of my day and even this way I can’t handle.
Sometimes I just want to hold my breath… for a second… but my hands have their own life and ideas come in bursts.
I can’t believe I’ve almost finished all the book recipes and despite all the work we still have I feel relieved and looking forward to revenge this absence.
Even when I’m away I’m never too far…
