In January 2017 our family of 4 sold everything for an around the world journey. It was exhilarating and occasionally scary, but everywhere we went around the globe, coffee shops had our back.
Our trip ended exactly a year later in the Rocky Mountains with a very cute cherry on top — I was pregnant!
I've been DYING to share this part of my life with you ever since. I hope you love The Loveliest.
CAFE ORGANIC CANGGU
Me and my Balinese buddy Tristan at a cafe in Canggu chatting about how we'd like to open up our own coffee shops one day. In 2019 we both pulled the trigger!
A PORTUGUESA MERCEARIA E PETISCOS
That's my baby Gisele at A Portuguesa Market in the seaside town of Vila Nova de Milfontes, where we stayed for a month. I was so inspired by the sweet owner Teresa who gave birth to TRIPLETS...and followed through on her vision to open a cute cafe anyway.
SOUND OF SILENCE CAFE
That's Phuong on the right, who made delicious pourovers and coconut coffee! When Isla got sick she made her a home remedy from their garden onsite. We think it was oil of oregano, not sure though. She loved our girls so much, she cried when we left (they all did).
