I could not agree more, especially in these moments of rush! This is the time of rushing though the shops looking for gifts or spending hours in front of the computer looking for STUFF - Stuff that nearly nobody needs neither wants and often ends up rarely being used: sixth scarf, tenth perfume, second iPad, eighth soft [...]

She helped a lot to put the pomegranates in a wooden box while her sisters and me climbed the tree and picked the fruits. I opened a pomegranate, put the seeds in her eco-friendly dish made of bamboo and our little gourmet went outside and sat in the box on top of the picked fruits… enjoying [...]
