This blog started because this precious little soul chose me to mother her… flash to present day I have been chosen yet again to nurture my son along this journey as well. Being their mom is the greatest joy of my life and I have never been more committed to anyone. The love of my humans fuel my entire existence.
This past Sunday my crew set aside time and energy for Momma! We keep a very full schedule but Sunday we slowed all the way down and did my favorite thing…. eating at the beach…
They made Momma feel special this day and always I LOVE them
If only I could blog directly from my brain to WordPress I could share so much more….. Life is so good! My tribe is in a constant state of upward movement and we are blessed to be favored by the creator!
So baby girl lost her first tooth!
It was the most beautiful, natural ,drama free right of passage.
Prior to bed we read
Ironically, today is #NationalToothFairyDay and when my princess awoke she was greeted with glitter money and chocolate coins in exchange for her first tooth! We also provided her “proof” of the fairies existence with glitter *Read: Fairy Dust* left sprinkled about and a photo of a small fairy a over her while she was sleep. Ahhh the magic in her her being when she awoke was worth it all.
This past weekend mi familia celebrated our little Prince that will be joining our tribe in just a few weeks. So beyond Thankful to those who continue to support us with love and encouragement. Good vibes were had by all and as I reflect, to have friendships with individuals that I consider to be family and bask in the levels of life that we have and continue to experience together is a huge success to me! Like I’m honored to have my family surrounded by so many good souls.
SN: My family needs a photographer… Im happy we captured the few snaps we have ,we are such in the moment people that we never get enough pics! I guess when life is so good you never feel like you have enough huh?
The “It’s a Boy” & ” Oh Baby” cups were super cute favors.
Ha! Peep Uncle Nate trying to break free from the girls
This is Amazing!
So happy Cheerios has given us a part two to this mixed family love!
Ice at The National Harbor was a unique and exciting frozen wonderland!
Colorful ice of Christmas imagery surrounded us and we took many turns on the slide!
I hope you guys have been making the most of this cold winter season by partaking in all the holiday fun to be had.
My little family really enjoys the holidays!
Sharing all the fun family traditions with your little makes everything even more special!
Most pumpkin patches are not open during the week to families which is pretty inconvenient … So discovering Queen Anne Farm so close to home and convientely open weekday hours was a blessing!
We love farms in general, the fresh food , novelty items, live stock and overall experience *sigh* these truly are the best moments.
Farm time is one of the rare times my family gets to disconnect from technology and just engulf ourselves in nature. We make an effort to appreciate these times as often as we can. Liv loaded into the little red wagon they had available and gazed at the chickens and other farm animals present, squealing and imitating their sounds. The bulk of our time was spent finding the best pumpkins of course. And yes pumpkinS because baby girl needed a big pumpkin and a tiny one as well. I swear she touched every pumpkin on the field 🙂
When she was satisfied with her selections. She also picked a sunflower to take home! We stopped in the little shop area for the neccessities yummy cider and pumpkin decorating kits!
So silly! And allll mine 🙂
Even the freezing rain that came over the DC area didn’t stop us from heading down to the National Harbor for Cavalia Odysseo.
I must admit I had no idea what to expect ,but the show was sold out and I’m always interested in fun new things so we snagged some tickets to opening night and beyond enjoyed the event.
The horses were beautiful and performed an amazing show with tons of dramatic tricks with their humans. I was secretly not so secretly inspired by how well trained the horses were and took that as a challenge for how well I need to have my dogs behavior. The West African acrobats were hands down the life of the party! The were so lively doing an insane amount of flips and human pyramids. The West African acrobats also did a call and repeat portion of the show which was translated into “No More War On Earth” which was pretty powerful and extremely relevant. The live instruments were delightful and refreshing. At one point what is best described as a human carousel took place! My eyes were wide open the entire show! Towards the end the horses ran through water! I may never go to a ordinary circus again…and with the ticket prices being slashed as a government shutdown deal I encourage you to treat yourself to a wonderful performance!
If you love food then the Taste of DC 2013 is where you need to be!
As a native to the area shamefully there were landmark eats that I had never even sampled such as Ben’s Chilli Bowl ( I know …I know) ,but after attending the event last year I’m totally locked in to a few new restaurants that I can’t live without. In general it’s a really good time with food and freebies.
The event will be held October 12-13, noon until 7 pm daily
