Please don’t make me put on chains!


Sequoia (6 of 17)

How many of you are girls and have (just like me) no clue how to put chains on the wheels of your car when it’s snowing heavily? It had been hot the whole month of December in California, so the last thing I thought I’d have to do is to drive in the snow. Of course, two days before my road trip a snow storm passed through Sequoia and there I was, stressing out about having to put those chains on my rental car. I never had to actually put them on, thank God, but it gave me a good amount of stress.  Continue reading

Sequoia National Park


Sequoia (17 of 17)

About 2 weeks before Strider was born, I was on my winter break and decided to take little trip to Yosemite and Sequoia. I had been wanting to see those national parks for a while now, but I never seemed to find the time. I planned the trip very last minute, rented a car 2 days before I left and I must say, it was one of the coolest trips I’ve made to date.  Continue reading

Beach 15-01 (10 of 16)

Home is not a place. It’s a feeling!

Ever since the beginning of the year, we’ve been trying to go see as many sunsets as possible and they have been amazing. I’ve seen all kinds of gorgeous ‘paintings in the sky’. The sky just gets a mix of pink, blue, purple and yellow and it’s hard not to be amazed by its beauty.  Continue reading

Welcome Strider!


Beach walk (6 of 6)

Hello everyone and happy 2015!

I’m so happy with how the year started. Stacy spent New Years Eve having contractions and they got worse as the hours passed. Little Strider was born on January 1st, a little before 9am. He came home last Monday and he’s such an amazing little guy. He’s sleeping all day, is really calm and really only cries when he’s hungry. He’s adorable and I’m so in love! Continue reading

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!

I was browsing through the Internet and stumbled upon this quote. Even though I’m not a mom, I love the way this lady put her thoughts into words. I thought about me growing up and about all the memories we created during the holidays and it immediately put a smile on my face. Living in the US with a young family, I love how they are building up and creating their own traditions! Continue reading

Maty’s Healthy Products


Maty's Health Products (2 of 9)

Today’s post is dedicated to some of the Maty’s Healthy Products that I love to use for both Slaiden and myself. I tested out 3 products. My favorite one was the baby chest rub, which was basically the same thing as the All Natural Vapor Rub that I use for myself. Slaiden loves our little ritual of putting the cream on his chest and he loves doing it himself. I’m sure it feels good too, because he comes to me several times a day with the little box in his hands and wants me to open it so he can put on some more. I love how careful he is with it! He just puts a tiny bit of cream on his little finger and then kinda dips it on his skin. Very cute.

Looking for pine cones on the trail


Trail (5 of 10)

Back in October when the leaves started coming off the trees and there were pine cones everywhere, I took Slaiden and his bear to the trail close to our house and let him run around free and enjoy the nature. I remember that back when I was little I loved playing with all the leaves and the other things I found on the ground outside. Of course I was a little older than him from what I remember, but knowing how active he is I knew it would be the perfect activity.  Continue reading
