I am totally obsessed with these orange flowering trees, appropriately named Royal Poincianas – and I’m completely obsessed with my Chech… So it just makes sense that I’d take the Penny for a spin and see what beauty we could make. Can you believe this big girl is starting Kindergarten?!
Frustrated at the “to do lists”, the sleep fighting & tantrums & lack of the ability to focus & my internet being so slow & the ‘Mommy!’ & the bickering & the guilt & the stress, I scooped Milena off the couch and hopped in the car for a break. A quiet drive to get […]
One day, I’ll know what a full nights sleep feels like. I won’t even recognize it – and I’ll just wake up with this pip in my step. My feet won’t crumble underneath the weight of my body as I tip toe out of bed. I won’t need to tip toe out of bed, because […]
Once Upon a Time… … we got to spend time with amazing friends, who mean the world to us. … they made my girl feel extra special on her 4th birthday. … we became Disney Annual Passholders. … Milena decided she’s not interested in any kind of photos. … Chech made some new best friends. … I got […]
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” Albert Einstein To possess the power and focus to awaken learning in young children, is truly a form of art. A learned craft, that not all can master. At one point in my life, I was a Kindergarten Teacher. […]
I like to think everyone gets antsy when life feels predictable. That I’m not the only one who despises routine. Who drowns in stagnant water. Uninspired by the everyday. I like to think that there’s more to why we’re on this planet than existing and going with the flow. And if I am, then that’s […]
As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen. But I had no idea it would be a new adventure every damn day. Welcome to a Day in our Life. <3
Once upon a time, there was a girl. She was young, smart, ambitious – boy was she ambitious. With dreams of becoming “something” – but the inability to really stay focused on one thing. See, this girl suffered from “the itch”. Every 2 years, like clockwork, she would be driven into this state of panic […]
Because when Mommy sets up for a headshot shoot – I need to test my settings! bahaha
They make each other so happy. It’s enigmatic, irreplaceable. It’s fill your whole house with smiles and warmth and giggles, and the kind of melt your frozen heart love. Their personalities couldn’t be any more different – but they are perfectly matching puzzle pieces. Alexandria was BORN to be a big sister.. we just didn’t know […]
How. IS. SHE STANDING. How on God’s Green Earth has this little sunshine been on this planet for already HALF OF A YEAR. She will be 7 months old in a few days – and although it makes me sad to think there will soon be no more babies in this house… it makes me happy […]
Once. We went on a childless vacation. We explored a city we’d never experienced. Heard sounds we’d never heard. Tasted palate pleasing cuisine. Once. We got bitten by the travel bug. Today, I’m dreaming of more adventures.
Our adventure began, early evening… a road trip with a 6 month old, a 3 year old and two exhausted parents. 10 hours in a car, to Pensacola. Sadly, my godfather, and uncle, passed away and we hadn’t been up to see them. I wish so bad that we had gone sooner – but we […]
This life is chaos. My family is a beautiful, traveling circus – perfectly combining entertainment, excitement and suspense all in one ball of energy. Will the tightrope walker make it across the line? Of course – she’s a professional. Will I make it through the week? Of course – because I have no other option. […]
