Summer Snapshots

Months from now, when I have forgotten what I did this summer, I can look back at these snapshots and be reminded of it all…in pictures.

This week we received our wedding pictures. I am so excited to look thru them slowly, look at them one by one because it takes me back to 2 months ago at our wedding day in paradise. I can smell the ocean breeze again. Wedding recaps coming soon.



This week, I drove to San Diego to spend time with my girlfriends. It is getting harder and harder to get together because of our schedules and it is even more of a challenge when you factor in babies in our group. This year, we welcomed 2 new babies and our group is growing fast. We spent the day being “us”, chatting about each other’s live, catching up in the middle of picking plums.

We are almost done with putting new paint in our  living room, new white paint for the ceiling and beige color for the walls. The only thing that needs to be done are the corners. I guess I saved the most challenging task last.

Next up: buying a new couch and putting curtains up.

This week I realized that this cute face is growing up fast.  I’m happy that I am there to capture most of it in pictures. My nephew Jonah is 4 months old now. I hope I can see him at least once a week so he doesn’t forget his favorite auntie.

Tres leches cake have been consumed more than once this week. P.S. it is a coincidence sometimes that I eat food that match my outfits. Is it really a coincidence if it has happened more than I can count? What can I say…I love to wear pretty colors and I like to eat pretty food.

    Got Married on the 21st of July so have been packing and unpacking since then.

    This coming weekend and now will be unpacking and organizing O.0 I wish I would have gotten rid of more stuff so I wouldn’t have to do it now but oh well I’m off and it’s keeping me busy busy busy.

    We have my husbands kids from Oregon so we are planning on going to a swap meet and maybe to the beach before I go back to work.

    • Annette, Congratulations on your wedding. I know that it was going to be soon, just didn’t realize it was that soon, lol! I hope you had a magical day and that you are enjoying your time off spending time with the husband and kids. P.S. I would love to see pictures. Can you share with me? I love wedding pictures.
