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 bit difficult to do anything else. Somehow, I managed to … More A Week’s Recap
I am extremely blessed with the most amazing colleagues ever. We work hard, laugh hard, and really cherish each other. Yesterday was my last day at work (I’m officially on maternity leave!). On Wednesday, the ladies surprised me with the most awesome baby shower. First, Mara (our resident blowout expert) gave me a much needed … More My Work Baby Shower!
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 can attend his meetings. From wake up time til’ when … More Bed Hair Friday
I love weekend mornings. It’s the time of the day when I feel most energized. Despite wanting to immediately jump out of bed and start conquering my to-do list (why am I always on a marathon?!), I am reminding myself that I’m 8 mths pregnant and really need to slow down. Lounging in bed isn’t … More Saturday Morning.
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 early morning person, gave me anxiety every time I leave … More New Beginnings…
Zoey is going to be a big sister soon! Lately, she’s been into books and often picks out her favorites for a quick read. Just like mommy, she digs sweater dresses b/c they are so comfy, stylish, and cozy! Also like mommy, Zoey wears her hair in a bun 95% of the time. It’s just … More The Big Sister
I cannot believe it has been a full week since my last post. Shame on me! This week passed by in a blink of an eye. Although work has been keeping me extremely busy, I thoroughly enjoy every minute of it. Everyday I am surrounded by the most entertaining and inspiring group of women. We … More Bump Watch #2
Hello! How’s everyone’s weekend going so far? It’s chilly up here in the New England area. In a way, I love days like this when it feels super cozy and soup totally hits the spot. I made butternut squash soup topped w/ bacon bits (of course) and pumpkin seeds for brunch . It was delish! In … More Flashback: PARIS!
Happy Tuesday morning! Yesterday, the bump and I had a LONG night. We stayed up until midnight to finish off some work-related projects. This morning, the bump and I woke up before sunrise to pack and get things ready for our business trip. We are heading to New York City for an editor’s event. Our … More NYC Bound
How was everyone’s Halloween? We had the most exciting celebration, ever. This was our first Halloween experience in our new neighborhood and it did not disappoint one least bit. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed something so crazy and over the top. After all, it’s just Halloween, right? Luckily for me, my sister … More Halloween 2013
As the ‘bump’ grows bigger, I find it more challenging to dress it up! You would think that I have a closet full of maternity clothes from being preggo with Zoey but I don’t. For one, during my late stage of pregnancy, it was summertime so I wore mostly flowy dresses about 2 sizes bigger … More Introducing “Bump It Up!”
I’m so thrilled to share what we’ve known for over 4 months now! Something’s been baking and no, it’s not Parisian bread. There’s a bun in the oven and it’s due this upcoming winter!! We feel so incredibly blessed and extremely excited to give Zoey a little sibling. I’m anxious to meet our little bundle … More What’s Baking?!
Yesterday was one eventful day! We were out and about in the city by 8am. Zoey just turned two and is just full of life as ever. She is obsessed over sunnies as you can tell! Many exciting updates to come. Grateful for all the blessings in my life. Have a wonderful weekend!
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 Paris. After sipping on lattes & enjoying the flakiest croissants … More Alleyway in Paris
Just a few quick Instagram pics of Zoey cherry picking! Like her mamma, she loves picking things off of a tree… Enjoy your day! PS. As you are reading this, we are now enjoying our stay in Padua and Venice…

Here are a few ideas, round-up from my Pinterest boards. Click on image for source. This is my dream child’s room for Zoey! It is perfect in … More Pom-Poms
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 was one of those toddlers who would not eat a … More The Z Update
Today’s THE day! Daddy’s taking his girls to PARIS!! This will be Zoey’s first time to the City of Love/Lights. I’m sooo excited to get to share this experience with her. Afterwards, this little globe trekker will head to Italy where she’ll stay at 3 different farms in Tuscany (Florence), Bologna, and Padua. We are … More PARIS, here she comes…
I recently stumbled on this site called OnToBaby and saw the cutest nursery prints. The best thing about it? It’s absolutely FREE!! All you need are some paper and a color printer to create these adorable initial nursery prints. I made one for Zoey (green for her birthstone color). They are fairly simple to create. Just … More FREE Initial Nursery Prints!
Today was one of those perfect days, weather-wise. Almost in the 70’s with partly clear blue skies. It was an ideal afternoon to take Zoey out to watch the Boston city skyline and sailboats at the harbor. She had an amazing time enjoying the fresh air and quietly devouring Laduree macarons. All this was done … More Chevron and Lace
