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.  About… 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

Zoey in the City

Zoey is now 2 months shy of 3 yrs old and I’ll have to say that we didn’t really go through too much terrible two tantrums (knock on wood!).  Sure, there were a few incidents where she went a little crazy but I can probably… 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

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

Friday Musings

Being a mother to a newborn is exhausting to say the least! It’s not that I haven’t been through this before, I guess I just forgot how bad the sleepless nights were… Sometimes I find myself a bit isolated. Yes, I have the company of… Read More

It has been an exciting week for us! We recently just welcomed Baby AXEL into the family. He’s a tiny little thing and perfect in every way. Our small family of four is complete and I can’t wait to witness all of his milestones. P.S.… 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

Bed Hair Friday

Today was one of those unanticipated mommy duty call days. Zoey stayed home from school because she wasn’t feeling too well so the hubs and I took turns taking care of her. I had her solo for the first half of the day so he… Read More

New Beginnings…

A little over 2 yrs ago, I received the greatest gift of all. The gift of Zoey Le. She was everything that I have hoped for but nothing that I have expected. I didn’t expect that having a baby would turn me into an uber… Read More

Zoey At 25 Mths

Good morning! The hubs is currently on a business trip so yesterday mommy and me had some precious ‘alone time’. I had grande plans to put Zoey to bed early (7pm) so I can have the rest of the night all by myself. My plan… Read More

Lover’s Bridge

While in Paris, one of the things that I really wanted to do was go to the Lover’s Bridge and lock our love… forever. The Lover’s Bridge is actually a chain link fence of the Pont Des Arts (crosses the left bank to the Louvre… Read More

Alleyway in Paris

Life might finally return to normalcy again! It feels familiar and so good to sit in front of MY computer. I work so much faster knowing where all the programs are. Love me some efficiency. Here’s the first official post of our recent adventures in… Read More

The Z Update

Zoey is growing up FAST! She’s a silly little girl who dances (and cries) on demand. She’s able to understand both languages (Vietnamese & English) and can identity her body parts and many animals in the two languages. We are so proud of her! Zoey… Read More

A Saturday With LZM

Hello! How’s everyone’s weekend? So if you’ve been following me since my house hunting adventure, you’ll probably remember that recently we found the house of Our Dreams. Zoey hasn’t seen it yet so yesterday we took her back for a closer look. I’ll do a… Read More

Friday Chit-Chat

Just some random chit-chat worthy things to mention…. Earlier this week, I bought these cool concrete initials for Zoey’s future bedroom (for when we move to our new place…whenever that is!) from Restoration Hardware. This is the type of random not-thought-out purchase that my husband… Read More

House Hunting 5

Here’s another post from the mini-series, House Hunting! Last week, we visited an open house…again in the Back Bay area and again, another penthouse unit. This one, however, was a lot different from the one on Commonwealth Ave. from House Hunting 3.  It had many skylights… Read More
