Hope you are doing well! This past week I celebrated my quarantine birthday and turned thirty two. It wasn’t the birthday I planned but definitely a blessing in disguised. We had big plans for my birthday, a family trip and a couples trip plan this month that we had to cancel due to the Coronavirus. Since I’ve started this blog I’ve always written a post to reflect the past year and to share my thoughts of turning a year older. Last year I shared what I learned in my thirties and what I look forward to being thirty one. So this year I thought I would continue the tradition and share my thoughts in the past year and what I look forward to being thirty two.
Hope you are doing well! So much has happened in the past couple weeks. With the coronavirus spreading, a lot has changed in our social life. Jayden is out of school for a month, things have closed down, travel plans postponed, and we have been doing our part to practice social distancing. As crazy as it’s been I’m just thankful to have my family together through it all. With Jayden being out of school, we’ve really been taking it easy and taking it day by day. There has been days where we have stayed in and watch movies all day. But I know I don’t want to be inside for a whole month straight, and luckily we don’t have to. Today on the blog I am sharing ten outdoor activities you can do with your family during quarantine while practicing social distancing.
Hope you are having a great week! So lately after a slew of glamorous photos with me and husband on my blog, my friends commented on how I was lucky to have such a photogenic husband, and asked for tips for how to get their significant other to take professional photos with them. I laughed at their comment because if they only knew the real process of it all, they would see that I was just like every other wife struggling to get their husband to take photos with them. So today I thought it would be fun to give you an inside look of the reality of it all and tips on how to get your husband to take professional photos. For laughs read more below!

Hope you are having a great week! This past weekend we celebrated Jayden’s 5th birthday with family and friends by throwing a Superhero birthday party. We don’t always do big birthday parties for Jayden, but this year with him being five and it being a big milestone in my book we threw him a Superhero birthday with all his family and friends. Jayden is that age where he loves superheroes and all things Marvel so it was only fitting to have this as his theme for his birthday. So today on the blog I am sharing all the details of his superhero birthday party, where you can purchase the decor, and how you can save when throwing a party. Read more below!
I can’t believe the day is here, my little man turns five! It’s crazy to think how time flies, even more so when you watch your children grow. This year makes me a little sad though, because this is the year my son goes into kindergarten. It’s a good thing don’t get me wrong, but for some reason I feel like I am losing my little baby. Day by day my little man starts growing into a young man and I don’t know if my heart can take it. I just want these moments to last forever. I remember I use to worry about my son sleeping in our bed, and now I cherish everyday he chooses to sleep with us, because it’s at night when he’s asleep where he still looks like my little baby. I cherish every hug, every kiss, and every time he still needs his mama, because I know as he gets older there will be a day where I am longer his center of his world. I don’t know if I’ll ever be ready for that day, but today I’m just thankful. Thankful for another wonderful year to watch my son grow older. So today I am sharing these beautiful portraits we took with our son and our dog for his 5th birthday. Thank you so much Alexis from Candid Kids Photography for capturing my son so beautifully. I will cherish these photos forever. Continue reading

We are less than two days till Christmas and a week away from NYE! Today is also my hubby’s birthday so I thought I would share one of my favorite NYE look with this gold metallic dress for under $100 I took with my handsome hubby.
