Graco Makes Mommyhood Easy

I’ve always relied on Graco car seats and strollers for my two little ones. I find them so easy to use— making mommyhood a little less stressful and a bit easier. I can’t deal with complicated contraptions when it comes parenting. My first ever Graco car seat/stroller combo was actually a second-handed item and I’ve … More Graco Makes Mommyhood Easy

Not Always Easy

It’s not always easy to balance deadlines, work partnerships, and mommyhood. Life behind the scenes is always much more hectic and chaotic than what appears to be on those beautifully laid out photographs. While working on a major collaboration a few weeks ago, Zoey was waiting and waiting and waitinggg on mommy. She finally had … More Not Always Easy

Sun and Sand

We make an effort to take the kids on a ‘family surprise field trip’ every weekend now that the weather is warm. It was such a brutal winter that this glorious nice weather feels like a gift. It wouldn’t make sense if we didn’t take advantage of it. Part of our parenting style is positive … More Sun and Sand

The Mobile Closet

Despite living in a somewhat spacious home, I don’t have the closet of my dreams- yet. My future closet still remains on the ‘to be renovated’ list. Currently, my clothes and accessories are scattered across several rooms. The classic morning dilemma is racking my brain and exerting way too much energy trying to find that … More The Mobile Closet

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 best experience as he was sick and fussy the entire … More My First Vacay

Morning…

Thank god it’s the weekend! It has been an extremely busy work week and I was looking forward to unwind with the family. This morning, the sis and I woke up extremely early and sneaked out for some coffee. We took a little walk around Zoey’s favorite playground. This is not a typical playground, it’s … More Morning…

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 were trying to shoot pictures of her and the baby … More “I’m Sad.”

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 flaky butter crust and whipping eggs. The quiche consisted of … More A Le Zoe Morning

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 count those times on my one hand.  I think for … More Zoey in the City

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 home such a Spring-ish vibe! You’ll also get to see … More Spring Mantel

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, it’s tea & pastry. I also attempted to finish reading … More Tuesday Morning

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 the precious one but at this point he eats, poops, … More Friday Musings

Here he comes!

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. Zoey has been a great big sister! She is transitioning … More Here he comes!
