One year ago, Phil and I were on our babymoon in Japan. What a difference a year makes! Now, we’re dreaming of a day when we’ll be able to safely leave our homes, let alone travel. After all, COVID-19 has hit us all like a ton of bricks. Since I’ve been dreaming of traveling a lot recently, sharing some more unpublished photos with you today which we snapped in Kyoto’s beautiful Bamboo Forest (I recently shared more Japan shots here).
Naiya is officially 18-months (going on 18) today and I’m sitting here wondering where our baby went! When Naiya was first born, every parent I knew told me to savor every stage because it flies by so quickly. Now, I’m the mama telling every pregnant mom I know the exact same thing because it really is impossible to imagine until you’re in it. Our mini is truly non-stop these days and I’m excited to share the latest and greatest Naiya photos and updates with you below. As you scroll through, keep in mind that almost all of Naiya’s giant smiles were from listening to ‘Baby Shark’ (for a change) on my phone. What is it about that song?! The rest of her smiles were from me jumping around like a crazy mama trying to keep that smile going. Either way, her face is priceless!
Happy Thanksgiving! This year, I’m thankful for many things but especially the fact that I’ll be able to celebrate today with my extended family for the first time in years. This will also be the first time I get to spend the holiday on the east coast with my husband, Phil. The two of us have stayed in LA for the past few Thanksgivings but this time around, we’re excited that we were able to travel.
I lived in this outfit this weekend and loved every minute. This black maxi skirt has become my weekend go-to because it’s so comfy, easy to throw on and I love that it can be dressed up or down. I dressed it down with a comfy pair of Birkenstocks that I’ve now worn in so well, they fit my feet like a glove. I layered on my favorite black leather jacket for some extra edge and wrapped a flannel around my waist for a pop of pattern.
