OOTD: Journey

The thing about personal style is that it can be used to expressed the journey you’re on. Really? Really. How many times has seeing a photo of yourself sporting the past era’s style transport you back to memory lane? I bet, countless times. We incorporate a bit of ourselves in what we wear on a daily basis….

Doing something a little different to express my gratitude. Thank you so much for your support. #worldmoyamoyaday2017 #spreadawareness #Fighter

💙Moyamoya is a rare brain disorder which effects the arteries in your brain. Blood flow is effected. When blood flow is effected too long those with Moyamoya may suffer TIA’s, strokes, siezures and even death. Would you be willing to wear blue 💙 on Saturday, May 6th and other days throughout May to share awareness…

Growth, as I see it.

Growth, as I see it is a sneaky little phenomenon. Often times, we don’t see it creep up on us until our initial goal becomes a daily norm. At that point new aspirations are realized. Captured moments at the park dumped the enormous news that WE have graduated from one phase of our life into…

Loot Anime: March Unboxing

Loot Anime: March Unboxing Never a disappointment! Loot Anime’s curated subscription boxes makes me want to try the other genres Loot Crate offers. It’s just that good… I appreciate the quality, uniqueness, and USEFULNESS each curated box brings. Their usefulness made it easy to  incorporate a lot of/most of the collectibles we received in our daily lives….

Gamer Block: March Unboxing

Better late than never right? Maybe not.  I have about a 30 minute window to take pictures of the items we received  before they go missing. Kind of like life and the opportunities it offers. You tend to miss out  when you procrastinate. But, I also don’t think that the early bird ALWAYS gets the…

Food For Thought

Food for thought: That one thing you might not want to say to parents with children dealing with a medical condition One of the things I didn’t appreciate hearing when our twins were dealing with more extreme medical conditions was that, I just had to chill out. Kids will get sick. The more they’ve experienced it…

OOTD: Denim

There’s something classic about denim.  Knowing how to dress your denims can open up a whole new world for your wardrobe (and wallet… if you’re good, you might be able to save a few bucks). Like a chameleon, it can easily be dressed up or down.  It’s very versatile. In my husband’s style of choice,…

Family Day: Roots

Family Day There’s something magical about the bond of my family. The strength we draw from each other and the strength we carry on our own is out of this world. Recently, we’ve been able to find time again to have family leisure time. Most parents know how difficult that can be. Making time for this is like…

Working on my balance

I did martial arts for years. It came easy to me… but I lacked the understanding behind the movements. Understanding conceptualized the significance of learning things right early on. Like I tell my kids, you have to have a strong foundation for the towers you are making. Even, then you can only balance so much before it topples over….

OOTD: Oasis

Oasis Sometimes life hits you… and then sometimes it bull dozes you with a semi truck.  Doctor appointments, cleaning, work, a super cold that never goes away…. and even MORE cleaning. What’s with ALL of this laundry? Laundry owns my life. How do we keep our sanity? We find an oasis. We make do with what we…

My family was just as excited as I was to rip into it. It felt like Christmas morning and we all got something we really liked. The collectibles made me want to start…
