Well hello hello! It’s been a long weekend and we are coming up to Friday (or as I told hubs the other day — better know as “fri-yay” — the combination of Friday and an “yay” to rejoice... to which he said “I am too old for this 😂). It... Continue reading

All this chatter about beaches and decadence have me nostalgic for Tulum!!! We were there back in early November for a wedding (seems like a life time ago now). How is that possible?

Hello hello! We are on an airplane yet again, where Mamma does her best thinking and writing. This time, we’re heading off to sunny Florida yet again. A trip to Florida isn’t complete without an excursion to Miami (or one could argue straight to Miami) — this is why during... Continue reading

Tonight we read a cute book about quality time with dad… via camping and making fires, fishing, and telling ghost stories. It was, to be fair – incredibly sweet and then munchkin insisted on re-creating a drawing of him and dad (though I dare say it’s odd that they’re both... Continue reading
