To My Precious Daughters

Growing up I would imagine of greatness, a future filled with amazement, splendor, joy and laughter. A grownup version of me, who was fearless, strong willed and a force to be reckoned with. A lioness who’s heart was as strong, as it was loving and caring. As so many of life’s wonders, my journey was indeed filled with everything I ever wanted and more. To my greatest discovery however, true happiness, fulfillment and my greatest accomplishment was only achieved, when you gifted me with the greatest challenge and the most beautiful task yet, becoming your mother.

My beautiful girls, you amaze me everyday with your inquisitiveness, your love and passion for new discoveries is contagious and shines bright through your star studded eyes. The gift of being your mother is a cornucopia of happiness, a gift that keeps on giving! 

My phenomenal girls, when you were babies I would walk ahead of you, while you would grip my hands so fiercely as we would take small steps together. Those tiny hands in mine, were so fragile but yet so strong and trusting. Now older and fully capable of walking on your own, my new position is beside you and no longer in front. As we walk side by side, I gaze at you and marvel at the young girls you have become. Never seize to shine, for your shimmer is but your essence and my purpose in life. Sprinkle that glittering essence of yours everywhere you go, walk tall, speak your mind and never be afraid to chase your dreams and goals. 

My extraordinary girls, every day spent with you is filled with amazement, splendor, joy and laughter. I am already proud of the day, when you will be walking ahead of me, while holding and guiding my fragile hands.

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size  
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.   
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

– Maya Angelou

Exciting New Times Ahead

I’m kind of saddened that I have to pack away my Easter decorations, but all good things come to and end, right? As Nora Jones sings sweet tunes in the background, my kiddos’ precious voices can be heard living out their magical imaginations of whimsical creatures like dragons, witches, unicorns and more. Their innocence and joyful laughter always warms my heart and puts a smile on my face. As I’m listening to the fairytales they tell each other, all while Nora captures the moment perfectly, like a soundtrack to their beautiful existence. I am thinking of upcoming holidays and daily festivities, I’m so excited to celebrate with these two stunning souls, who breath a new life into me every single day.

Easter Traditions

I’m a sucker for holidays, especially family holiday traditions. Scavenger hunts has become an all time favorite with my kiddos. Every holiday I search on various sites for riddles and clues, print them out and then hide them all around inside and outside our home. This year I embellished the clues with some card stock and stickers, before placing them inside eggs. My girls 7 and 4 years old, love to team up and look for new clues. I’ve attached the riddles I used for this years Easter Scavenger Hunt, in case you would like to give it a try.

Children See Magic, Because They Look For It

Today we decided to go outside and see what’s going on in the garden. The girls got lost in their imaginative play and somehow these ladybugs became a part of their game too. Suddenly they were pretending to be sister entomologists, who were studying on beetle lifecycles.

Easter Bunny Cinnamon Rolls

It’s day 22 of of self isolation and my number one priority has been and still is to keep to routines and maintain a sense of normalcy in all this madness. Keeping the kiddos occupied has been challenging at times because lets face it, there’s only so much you can do from within your four walls. But fear not, because this mommy has an arsenal of boredom busting tricks, ideas and activities up her sleeve. Like these twisted looking cinnamon roll Easter bunnies we made. They may look strange, but I promise they taste awesome!

Breakfast In Bed

My kiddos are on school break and that puts the household in a certain holiday mode, even thought the rest of us still have to work. Nothing says holiday quite like a scrumptious breakfast in bed though, so that’s exactly what we did. The girls helped me make pancakes and we overindulged our selves, while still in our PJs.

Picnic Under The Stars

It has been a while since our last date night, the kids have been sick all week and we were starting to suffer cabin fever. What we needed was some adult time and I had the perfect idea in mind. After the kids went to bed, we set a picnic for two in the back yard and the telescope aimed up for some stargazing.

Parachutes

Whenever I ask my kids what they want to be, when they grow up, the answer is always the same, scientist! They are very inquisitive as most children are, always on a mission to find new experiments to do and adventures to embark on.
