Let´s see... I'm 37, I freelance as a translator, I love urban crafts, everything that is handmade, also recycling furniture, decorating and renovating, which me and my husband did at Casa da Baixa, from all the construction to the all the furnishing and decorating (hubby is an architect, so that helps!).
I have two boys, 7 and 2 years old, and I chose freelancing and urban crafts as a way to build my schedule around them, instead of the opposite. As most Portuguese women, I enjoy having guests and I want them to feel as comfortable and welcomed as possible in our little Downtown House!
During the time we spent renovating Casa da Baixa, I fell in love with Lisbon, looking at the city more like a tourist than like someone in a hurry to run an errand. It has been a wonderful experience that I hope will just get better and better!
