Tomorrow I'm leaving for Argentina to visit my family and friends for two weeks. There is such intense emotion surrounding this trip - Argentina is a place that is so special for me, where I spent a large part of my childhood and lived so many experiences growing up.
Bringing my baby daughter there will be surreal. I cannot wait to see my grandmother, aunt, uncle, cousins, friends. I so desperately wish that my grandfather was still alive to meet her. It doesn't seem possible that I have my own baby who will sleep in the room where I slept as a baby, little girl and teenager - the room where my father slept from the time he was a toddler until he left to marry my mother in New York. Lucia will splash around in the pool where my grandfather taught me how to swim and then to dive. The house looks a little different now but it is still the warm place full of so much love that I remember.
So because I will be on vacation, the blog will be too. I will most likely check in here and there but posting will not be regular. Also, I get back just in time for New York Fashion Week and there will be a lot of exciting posts to check out.
See you soon!
Here are some favorite photos that I have taken in Buenos Aires during previous trips - some of which you've seen.
And, some photos that I took in other parts of Argentina.
