A Perfect Mother’s Day Gift: Saving Memories with Acrylic Prints

As a family, we take a lot of mini-adventures. With every little special field trip comes plenty of pictures. These pictures tell a story, help relive a moment in time and save memories that don’t happen again. As a mother, the greatest gift is simply the most meaningful. For me, it’s photos of our family that’ll stand … More A Perfect Mother’s Day Gift: Saving Memories with Acrylic Prints

DIY Paper-Napkin Decoupage (Spring Blossom) Easter Eggs

We are taking the kids Easter egg hunting this Saturday and they are  so excited. This will be the third year in a row that we’ll be attending our neighborhood’s annual egg hunt. We’re establishing our own little family traditions and rituals with each holiday. The best gift about being a parent is living life through the eyes of … More DIY Paper-Napkin Decoupage (Spring Blossom) Easter Eggs

Snow Day

Today was an official snow day for us. The office shut down and the schools were closed. However, the hubs went to work because he works at the hospital and it never closes. I had to spend the day solo with the littles which makes me a little nervous. Lately, there has been a lot of terrible two … More Snow Day

Hello Summer!

When I was a little (a lifetime ago, in elementary school), I used to think that summer lasted for an entire year. There was school which was a year long and then came summer which was the year immediately after. To a 5 yr old, it made total sense and I never questioned that that was … More Hello Summer!

Zoey and Axel

Just a little update on the two people who run my life. The littlest lady of the house is almost turning FIVE and will start kindergarten this coming Fall. Pinch me now. Our prince of the gaslight district is two years old. Luckily for us, they are two peas in the pod. They get along very … More Zoey and Axel

The Z Update

I haven’t done a Zoey update in the longest time. My young lady is now almost 4.5 years old. She’s grown to be such a well-behaved, polite and outspoken little person. Yes, although she can get down lo’ shaking her thang as seen HERE, she is full of class and grace. When Zoey first started pre-k, … More The Z Update

Happiest New Year!

Can’t believe 2016 is here! There are so much to be thankful for as the years go by. I’ve learned to realized that despite all of the achievements that we are constantly chasing after; the most important things in life are already there. I’m so thankful for my family, their good health and happiness. Our … More Happiest New Year!

Christmas Morning

Just a really short and sweet post… A few quick snaps of our Christmas morning where the kids wore matching jammies and mommy and daddy took no part of it. It was very challenging to get the kids to take pictures before opening their presents because their excitement level was at a max. Our Christmas … More Christmas Morning

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays! I can’t believe tomorrow is already Christmas Eve and I still don’t have everything ready. Most presents are still hidden and unwrapped, we haven’t baked cookies for Santa and we’ve yet to figure out where to go tomorrow night for church service. The old churches in Boston are so incredibly gorgeous and massive- … More Happy Holidays!

Thanksgiving 2015

Each year holidays get more and more special. Zoey is four and Axel is almost two so they are participating in all the holiday decorations and preparations. This Thanksgiving, we hosted at our house and Zoey helped out with a bunch of stuff. She was great at creating the dining table’s centerpiece and helped mommy … More Thanksgiving 2015

Sleeping with Eve

Christmas came early with Eve and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Our bedroom has really become our family room- literally. We spend mornings in bed cuddling with the kids and watching their favorite shows. At night, there are bedtime stories and more of watching their favorite shows. The bed itself doubles as our ‘family couch’ … More Sleeping with Eve

Living Free…

Don’t you ever wish you can relive those childhood days when everything was so care-free? I remember always going to the park with my cousins after school and we’d stay there until the sun sets. Ran home for dinner, slept like a baby, and ready for next day’s adventure. I am so blessed to say … More Living Free…
