a baby shower treat

Last weekend I was given a very special treat - four days in New Jersey with my family and friends! I truly cannot imagine a more special gift than that. But, on top of it, I was showered with love and presents at a stunning baby shower organised by my ever-talented (and generous) mother and sister. There were about forty people all gathered in my mom's lovely home on a beautiful spring day, eating salads and homemade cupcakes and drinking lemonade and tea. It was so special, and such a wonderful treat to see so many of my favourite people and have the opportunity to celebrate the coming of our little one with them! Below are some photos from the day, most courtesy of my friend Dale Mori-Ryan who made sure to capture the day for me. Thanks, Dale! 

7 months pregnant in Colombia

This past week was spent in Medellin, Colombia where I was doing a whole lot of running around to make sure that our 45+ delegates from roughly fifteen countries were all at the right place at the right time for the more than twenty events they were participating in at the 7th World Urban Forum. Not a small task when you're 7 months pregnant and the weather is hot with an extra dose of humidity. But I did it! And it was a great experience, and everything went super well. So, all-in-all, can't complain. Especially since, in return, I get four days in New Jersey with my family! Yay!
