You might have heard me mention our friends, Eric and Stephanie, in previous posts. They are expats, like us, having moved to San Juan del Sur in 2008. Shortly after their arrival, they opened Pan de Vida, a brick oven bakery. You can read more about their adventures in baking at International Living and read an awesome review of their breads and desserts in Hecho Magazine. If you are in the area, be sure to stop in for their cinnamon raisin swirl bread, some oven-fired focaccia bread or my favorite, their orange nut bread. But this post isn’t about promoting their business – although you’d be a fool not to try their homemade chocolate chip cookies.
In addition to raising a fabulous business, Stephanie just gave birth to their second daughter last week. Upon their return from the hospital, our wise friend, Kelly (whom I’ve quoted more than once in this blog), said to Stephanie and Eric, “do you guys realize that you moved here with each other and a car, but if you were to leave tomorrow (hypothetically – don’t worry, they aren’t going anywhere), you’d have a cat, a dog, a business, and two beautiful daughters?”
Sounds to me like their bread basket is full. Love to you all and congratulations on the birth of Felicity Rae!
