I’m l.Alexandrea, the writer, pastry chef, coach and creator behind Postcards From Verbena. I am currently introducing my new travel, food and lifestyle blog, where I dig deep into how I discovered the magic to living a passionate, stress free, happy life. It took me three years to create a new life for myself after going through complete burnout. I was such a workaholic and loved to work, but my body decided it was time for more. On this site, you will find recipes, easy cooking tips, insights into living stress free, videos that explore beautiful gardens, and interviews with fellow bloggers. This blog is dedicated to help you live a simpler, balanced, happy, passionate, joy-filled life! What are my favorite things to do? Eating fantastic food, playing tourist, relaxing, and visiting gardens around the world! What are your favorite things? Go ahead; enjoy my site and indulge!
