    I’m thankful for sparkling water, it is my daily “fun drink” without any sugar. I’m thankful for podcasts, my commute will never be the same again. I’m thankful for our neighborhood, that the streets are safe and there are plenty of trails for me to walk around. I’m thankful for my husband’s ability […]

  This weekend, we are celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary. I still love the lyrics to our first dance, which was “Everything” by Michael Buble. A lot of it still holds true to this day, and no matter how crazy life gets,  I am glad I found a partner in my husband who is there to get […]

Our first Valentine’s Day as a family of three was a memorable one. I’m always mindful of those “firsts” moments, now that our family has grown to three.  I know that baby won’t remember his first year, but it’s special to include him in all our celebration and I want to look back on his […]

It was a busy and fun filled weekend. Here are some snapshots of my weekend thru my phone. Pumpkin Pancakes every morning. Road trip down south. Comfy in my Tom’s shoes. So comfortable.

What a whirlwind of a week it has been. It was busy, busy with back to back events. It was so much fun, it went by so fast but I wouldn’t have it any other way. In a week, I had my bridal shower, celebrated my 30th birthday, ran a 10K for She Runs L.A. and […]

I had a wonderful birthday celebration yesterday. Thank you to everyone who greeted me and sent birthday wishes my way 🙂 Normally, I would plan to travel around my birthday, but with the wedding and our trip to Mexico being a month away, we decided to stay local. It was low key, relaxing and just […]

Sweet Celebrations

What do I consider sweet celebrations? A whole day of spending quality time with my family and enjoying some sweets and some celebrations. This weekend my nephew Jonah is one month old. Look how chubby his face has become. My teeny tiny little chub chub. This is his favorite sleeping position. My younger sister Berna […]

Today is one month before I turn the “Big 30” on April 26th. I am so excited to be turning 30 and be where I am in my life. I don’t really feel like I am 30 years old, I feel like I am 21 + 9 years of wisdom or experience. My life is […]

A Day in the Wild – Part I

IMG_4592.jpg

Even for someone who enjoys working out, it was still hard to get back into my workout routine after being away from the gym for a week or so while I was sick. I eased into my workout by doing light cardio on alternating days. Once I was feeling well enough to take the intensity […]
