The Equilibrium of Life and How I Broke Mine

In my past pre-baby life, I was a producer for photo shoots and video shoots. My days were full of working with casting to get models, filling out paperwork, planning travel, talking to clients, buying props and wardrobe and being the communicator. In my opinion, I was pretty good at it. While I produced successful... Continue Reading →

A Healing Word

One of LM’s first words was “Mama” which he chanted constantly, until somewhere around 18 months, where his chanting turned to only consisting of “Daddy” and “Ball-ball.” “Mama” was reserved for the occasional outburst when I (the Mama) would stop LM from participating in such fun activities like trying to throw all of Daddy’s shoes...

An Experiment of Service

I love celebrating holidays, a lot. I think I get it from my mom, who always had our house decorated for each holiday and was known for making various colors of pancakes to commemorate each day: pink hearts for Valentines Day, green for St. Patrick's Day and so forth. Celebrating is in my blood. With... Continue Reading →

2015- A Photo Essay

It has taken me two weeks to finish this 2015 post, which I had planned on sharing on New Year's Eve. You can just guess how my New Year's resolutions are going... (hint: very slow).  I wouldn't say 2015 was an awful year, it just hasn't been a year of smooth sailing, but I'm grateful for... Continue Reading →
