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 the mix, who has time to plan such extravagant V-days?!  … More The Gift

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 can attend his meetings. From wake up time til’ when … More Bed Hair Friday

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 early morning person, gave me anxiety every time I leave … More New Beginnings…

Zoey At 25 Mths

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 backfired as I eventually fell asleep with her! I simply … More Zoey At 25 Mths

Lover’s Bridge

While in Paris, one of the things that I really wanted to do was go to the Lover’s Bridge and lock our love… forever. The Lover’s Bridge is actually a chain link fence of the Pont Des Arts (crosses the left bank to the Louvre museum). Lovers write love notes on padlocks and lock it … More Lover’s Bridge

Alleyway in Paris

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

Cherry Picking

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…

The Z Update

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

A Saturday With LZM

Hello! How’s everyone’s weekend? So if you’ve been following me since my house hunting adventure, you’ll probably remember that recently we found the house of Our Dreams. Zoey hasn’t seen it yet so yesterday we took her back for a closer look. I’ll do a House Hunting 6 post on it soon but below you … More A Saturday With LZM

Friday Chit-Chat

Just some random chit-chat worthy things to mention…. Earlier this week, I bought these cool concrete initials for Zoey’s future bedroom (for when we move to our new place…whenever that is!) from Restoration Hardware. This is the type of random not-thought-out purchase that my husband would categorize as “junk.” Lately, I’ve been mildly obsessed with … More Friday Chit-Chat

House Hunting 5

Here’s another post from the mini-series, House Hunting! Last week, we visited an open house…again in the Back Bay area and again, another penthouse unit. This one, however, was a lot different from the one on Commonwealth Ave. from House Hunting 3.  It had many skylights and was very bright. Although it was the top unit, … More House Hunting 5

A Dinner Affair

Hello! How is everyone enjoying your Memorial Holiday? The weather has been horrible here in Boston…wet, gloomy, windy, and cold. So unlikely for this time of the year. We didn’t spend the weekend as planned but I did end up hosting a little dinner for 6 adults + 2 babies. It was a wonderful night … More A Dinner Affair

Chevron and Lace

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

A Wellness Event

Hello all! Hope everyone’s doing well… A few weeks ago, I received an invite to attend Erba Vita’s launch event as they introduce their natural health line to the States. Today, I attended the fabulous luncheon and learned about some of their wellness products. I am definitely eager to try some organic health remedies and … More A Wellness Event

20.5 Mths

Hello! Hope everyone’s doing well. Zoey just recently turned 20.5 mths. YAY! She had a great time this weekend at Aunt Helen’s house where she got to ride in a wagon. Then on Sunday, spent the early afternoon in Chinatown for some dim sum. Zoey at Aunt Helen’s backyard. Zoey at a park in Chinatown. … More 20.5 Mths

New Talent

Hello! Hope you are enjoying your Sunday! Just a few instagram pics to share… Zoey has a new talent…she takes amazing pictures! Took some lessons from daddy and was ready to point and shoot.  Since our camera’s so heavy, having the tripod was a big help for the little one! Last night the hubs prepared … More New Talent
