This is a collection of personal family photographs that were first published on a Blog called Cravo e Canela. The blog ran from around 2006 to 2012, when it was hacked. We lost all the writing and posts, but the photographs were safe and backed up. These images feature a period of our life in Brazil and specially my older daughter’s, Gabriela, early years. Gabriela Cravo e Canela (which translates to Gabriela Clove and Cinnamon) is a famous piece of brazilian literature and that’s where the name came from. Gabi is now 14 years old… time goes too fast.
