Is anyone getting tired of hearing about the beach? I really hope not. Each trip just feels so distinct that I have to capture it! The ocean, the air, Charlie, and our experience changes every time. This Saturday the water was crystal clear and calm. The sun shone high and bright. Charlie had just woken … Continue reading the most beautiful beach day.
We've been reading to Charlie since nearly day 1. But with a 6 month old, it's still more about what we like to read to Charlie rather than what Charlie's really into. It's not like he can specifically ask for one book over another yet. He definitely loves books already though, so I think it's good … Continue reading our favorite baby books at 6 months.
I totally jumped the gun yesterday morning and ripped off my April calendar at school. Technically, May doesn't come until next Tuesday, but I don't care gosh darn it! I'm ready to see the light at the end of the tunnel - aka SUMMER BREAK! I just needed to see that little square that says … Continue reading the friday post – volume 9
On Saturday afternoons we don't even have to think about what we're having for dinner. Just like we eat pizza on Fridays, on Saturdays - we have burgers on the grill. There are few things more satisfying than burgers on Saturday. It makes the weekend feel like a holiday, even if it isn't. Especially if … Continue reading a recipe: crunchy fridge pickles
Our little guy is starting to seem not so little anymore. We have glimpses every day of the kid he's going to grow up to be, and it's a combination of heart-wrenching that it truly does go by this fast, and so fun to have his little personality shining through. At six months Charlie … Continue reading six months with charlie.
In the spirit of celebrating life's simple joys, you'll find a new series here every now and then. Every day, we are left with the vast responsibility of our feelings - both good and bad, positive and negative. I'm hoping this series will help bring focus to the small, simple things that bring joy and happiness to … Continue reading simple joys: reading in bed
It was 4pm and it felt like we hadn't done a thing all day. Charlie took a half hour long afternoon nap, then an extra half hour nap in my arms after that, and another half hour after that when I finally set him back down in his crib, shaking out the pins and needles in … Continue reading a slow sunday.
We ordered our food in the cramped little restaurant wondering to each other if there would be a table open on the back patio. Margarita or beer? Beer. The last time we were here, I was only weeks pregnant and I was still in the phase of having to remind myself that I couldn't get … Continue reading out & about: cholo soy
Hi friends! Is it just me or has a week has never gone by so fast? I can't tell you how happy I am that it's the weekend again. I know I know - it's not Friday. But I just couldn't quite get it together enough to post this last night. Last night we were … Continue reading the friday post – volume 8
"Welcome the present moment as if you had invited it. It is all we ever have so we might as well work with it rather than struggling against it. We might as well make it our friend and teacher rather than our enemy." Pema Chodron I used to practice meditation at least 3-4 times a … Continue reading a mindful morning.
