After Work Stroll

Out of all my sisters, my sis X and I are the closest in age. We grew up doing everything together. During our high school years, we would walk an hour each way to and from school everyday.  The school bus didn’t run through our… Read More

Me-Time

Ever since joining the motherhood club, me-time has become a very rare commodity. It has also taken on a whole new meaning. I don’t go to salons or spas to get pampered. In all honesty, I’ve never been that kind of girl. Shopping doesn’t delight… Read More

Not much to say besides the fact that our dining room makeover is near its completion! I’ll post before and after pics of the project SOON. I wish to do much more frequent postings but with a baby on board, an energetic toddler, and each of us… Read More

My Everything

She is seriously my everything. I cannot imagine one second being without her. Every night before going to bed, she kisses me and tells me “I love you so much mommy”.  Brave, courageous, funny, silly, passionate, feisty, friendly. We are so lucky she’s our daughter.

A Bittersweet Day

Today is a very bittersweet day. It’s Zoey’s last day at daycare and then she transitions to preschool at another institution. Zoey has come a very long way. From her first day screaming and crying because she was terrified to now- not wanting to go… Read More

“I’m Sad.”

Zoey does not have a problem telling us exactly how she feels. Some mornings, she would wake up and shout “I’m happy!” out of the blue. This was not one of those times. This time, she was ‘sad’ and it happened to be while we… Read More

A Le Zoe Morning

Lucky for me, I have a husband who enjoys cooking. During the summer time, I’ll have homemade pastas and ice cream to look forward to. This past weekend, he made a savory quiche for breakfast. It was a team effort, Zoey helped with making a… Read More

Spring Mantel

If you have a thing for home decor, you may enjoy this post. Here’s a glimpse into our living room, particularly the fireplace mantel which I’ve adorned with cherry blossoms. I love cherry blossoms because they are so delicate, elegant, and airy. They give our… Read More

First Day Out

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not like ever since I’ve had Axel, I’ve been hibernating. Of course I’ve been out and about…but never without leggings, a comfy tee, cozy uggs, an oversized jacket, and a mommy bun. Comfort is my first priority lately. Seriously, with… Read More

Tuesday Morning

I am gradually adapting to my new role as mother of two. Mornings typically start way before sunrise. My sister (who’s visiting & has been extremely helpful) takes care of Axel in the late morning so I can sneak in some alone time.  This morning,… Read More

Nail Files

I don’t remember the last time I wore my hair down, or dressed up for a date night, or showered on a daily basis for that matter. Seriously, what have I turned into? I once was THAT girl. The one who used to wear heels… Read More

A Week’s Recap

Happy Friday everyone! This week has been both exhausting and fun. Axel is almost a month old and he’s been more challenging than usual. He’s up every two hrs. at night and refuses to nap during the day unless I hold him so it’s a… Read More

DIY RAINCLOUD MOBILE

I’ve been lacking so much sleep, it’s insane. Axel’s been waking up every 1.5-2 hrs at night. Each time he brutally wakes me up, I swear I would nap during the day to make up for the lost sleep. However, when morning comes I’m as… Read More

The Gift

Let me start off with this…Valentine’s for us has never been about gifts. EVER. It has always been about the card-to-card exchanging action. Some yrs. there are flowers and others we may even go all fancy with a dinner date. However, with a toddler in… Read More
