Happy Sunday! Today, we strolled the city for five hours and it was time well spent with the family. My work is demanding and the environment is fairly fast-paced so the weekends offer a good balance. Every Friday, I leave the office feeling accomplished no matter how crazy the week was. I look forward to lazy weekend … More My Spring Blossom Bedroom
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
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
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
Fall festivities are by far my most favorite things to look forward to this time of the year. Not only is the weather perfect (all you need is some light layering to keep cozy) but everything else is also sort of magical. This past weekend, we took the kiddos to a pumpkin patch just outside … More Pumpkin Patch ’16
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!
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
Father’s Day is approaching fast and if you still don’t know what to get him, think shaving essentials- you can’t go wrong. I know, this may sound blah but trust me Baxter products will change your mind. I don’t know if ‘chic’ is an appropriate word to describe male stuff but it’s the first thing that … More Father’s Day Gift Guide
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
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!
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! 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!
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
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
Hope everyone is enjoy your Saturday! Tonight we are going to Boston’s first Christmas tree lighting celebration. We miss it every single year because we are always out of town but luckily we are able to bring the kids to enjoy the festivity this year. I’m excited and can’t wait to see the holiday glow in … More Cranberry Festival 2015 (part 2)
I can’t believe it has been exactly three years since we’ve gone to the annual Cranberry Festival. The drive back to the tiny town of Wareham was nostalgic. Last time, it was just the three of us- me, hubs, and Zoey. This time around, we have Mr. Axel joining us. Fall festivities in New England … More Cranberry Festival 2015
Luckily for Zoey and Axel, they have a lot of aunts. Like all five of them. Unfortunately, none of the aunts live close by but when they do get to spend time with the kids, it’s that much more precious and fun. I would like to say that Zoey enjoys all of her aunts’ company … More How to Totally Nail Being the “Cool Aunt”- guest post
We are approaching the end of summer which means farewell to beach days, basking in the sun, and all the family fun activities that New England summer has to offer. Yesterday, we took the kiddos to the beach where they enjoyed playing in the water, digging in the sand, and picking seashells. This is Axel’s … More The Last Bits of Summer
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…
I have to say that I’m lucky enough to be born into a HUGE family! I have 5 AMAZING sisters and each one is unique in her own sassy kinda way. Yes, we got our sassiness from our momma! And apparently, Ms. Zoey is sassy herself, which means that she probably got it from me! … More My Sisters Are AMAZING!
