Lunar New Year ’15 (Year of the Sheep)

Have you ever wondered why the Chinese have a different New Year celebration? It’s because they follow the Lunar calendar as opposed to the Western (Gregorian) calendar system.  The Lunar calendar is simply one that is based on the cycles of the moon. Most traditional… Read More

The Mobile Closet

Despite living in a somewhat spacious home, I don’t have the closet of my dreams- yet. My clothes and accessories are scattered across different rooms. The classic morning dilemma? Racking my brain and exerting way too much energy trying to find that one piece of… Read More

Flashback Friday: Paris ’13

With this post, I’m taking you back to summer ’13 when we took Zoey to Paris right before her second birthday. I can’t believe how much she’s grown since. Back then, she barely said a word and now she’s  conversing in sentences such as “Mommy,… Read More

Zoey, Through My Lens

I’ve never had any formal training in photography. In fact, my studies have been very far from it. I hold Bachelor degrees in Anatomy and Business and a Doctorate in Chiropractic. I am, however, a creative at heart. This, I’ve known since I was itsy… Read More

This is our typical weekend morning meal. Hubs made sunny-side up eggs, bacon, and croissants while Zoey and I made hot chocolate with marshmallows. Here’s a view outside my office window yesterday.… Read More

My First Vacay

Unlike Mr. Axel, at 8.5months Ms. Zoey has already traveled to 5 states and 2 countries. Axel has a lot of catching up to do! His first vacay was this past week to Florida for my brother’s wedding. I can’t say that it was the… 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.

“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

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
