Hi guys!

I love taking pictures of objects, nature, sky, natural elements, like, snow, rain etc…if it evokes any emotion in me, chances are I will capture it. I’m not a pro photography but I like to think I have a great eye for capturing images that have inspired me in one way or another.

These I captured yesterday because the was something about the formations and movents in all of them that just made me feel… well, grateful to be alive. If you look closely you’ll notice a hand waving hello.

As always, no filters w/Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Before I go, I’ll leave you with this:

Don’t worry about yesterday, you can’t go back and change anything. Live in the moment. Don’t worry about tomorrow, tomorrow will worry about itself. Live in the moment.

Fashion Jaunt: Our Trip to JCrew

Okay, can we just take a moment to take in just how adorable / gorgeous / girly-girl the girls department at JCrew is. Go ahead, I’ll wait!

Yup, I thought so…I meeeaaaan the little adorable pieces were so cute, I felt I needed most of them in my size. I don’t know about you, but I’ve noticed how most of the little girls stuff is sometimes cuter than adults.

Anyway, this was Aria’s first time there as a toddler (been in there a few times with her when she was a baby). She was like a kid in a candy store and wanted everything. She really liked a pair of these pink sneakers and a super glittery backpack. Her Dad couldn’t help but get them for her. (Sorry, I didn’t take a picture, next time).

In other news, this week has been crazy busy but I’m feeling great about the weekend. I’m also feeling soooooooooo great about August being here, as it’s my birthday month. And even more exciting is that I’ll get to see my musical soulmates.

All of which adds up to a great month ahead. I thank God everyday for giving me so much inner strength, tenacity, and the amazing privilege to be able to share my life with a wonderful little person, and of course, you–my blog readers.

Whatever you have planned for the weekend, month, the rest of the year, and life goals, I pray that you are happy, successful, and that all great things come your way!

I want to give a s/o to whomever came up with #tbt. I try to share a pic or two from past years, it’s a reminder of where I’ve come from…

I wanted to share just a few of my favorite pictures of Aria and I. I cannot believe she’s going to be three years old already! Heck, I can’t believe I’m a mommy! This morning at breakfast I said to her, “you’re a good girl, thanks for always helping mama.” To which she replied, “you’re a good girl, too.” Smiles and gives me a hug.

Never a doll moment!

I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Besos / Xxg ✌ 💕 💋
