Our fam is walking out of 2020 with the same determination that Sadie has in this photo. The biggest mazels to everyone for making it to the end of this unbelievable year. It stopped us all in our tracks and took our breath away. It taught us to slow down and savor the little things. It was scary, uncertain, uncomfortable and transformative. Millions of people suffered–both outwardly and silently. And perhaps the craziest part? The entire world was in it together. 2020 reminded us that our health is truly everything. Somehow, despite all of its countless hardships, 2020 flew by.
Hello 2020! Halfway through January, I’ve finally gotten my act together enough to share my new year’s resolutions with you. My hands have been so full with Sadie and Naiya over the past few months, the days keep melting away. Trying to savor all of the cuddles while not beating myself up too much about not being as productive as usual. After all, having the chance to sit behind my computer to type or get anything done for that matter has been so much more difficult than it was with only one baby! Mamas, can you relate? Excited to round up my top 5 new year’s resolutions below in hopes that in writing them down, I’ll actually be able to continue sticking to them. Hoping that in sharing them, they’ll inspire you too.
How is this the last day of 2019? 2018 flew by quicker than any year I can remember. I started 2018 as an anxious new mama cradling a tiny four month old baby wondering how I’d ever go back to work. Now I have a walking, spunky 16 month old and I’ve found my new normal (usually!)! Excited to take a look back at 2018 below with our favorite outfits and an ever-growing Naiya.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that 2017 is kicking off to a great, positive start. Phil and I wrapped out 2016 in a beautiful Airbnb cabin in snowy Big Bear, California. As a native New Yorker, the fact that I’m now vacationing to cold places means I’ve probably been in LA too long but I’m so happy we went. The cold felt so good and the snow was so homey and festive. Still very thankful to be a Cali girl though because we were able to drive back to the warmth and palm trees of LA in about two hours. Bye bye, winter!
