No longer picture crazy

I used to be picture crazy.

Well, let me rephrase that, I used to be crazy about getting pictures printed out.

I used to be the person who would get almost every picture printed out, several copies of each picture and hand them out to friends.

I have many friends who would not have pictures if it wasn’t for me.

I have countless photo albums.

I’m not like that anymore. (haven’t been for years)

I guess I have a lot more to do now.

You probably won’t believe me when I tell you that there is not one single picture of Lily in this apartment.

What!? You might be thinking?

I take SOOOOOOOOO many, right?

Well, maybe there are a few on the fridge but from last August.

I’m so bad at getting pictures printed out that I don’t even send pictures to my parents in Portugal.

Which brings me to the whole point about this post.

My dad, is starting his own Lily albums by taking (stealing) pictures from the blog.

That’s what it’s for after all. 🙂

So here you go pai, some new pictures of Lily. (beijinhos!)



Facebook spoiler

My 20 year high school reunion is coming up in November. (Midland Park High School Graduating Class of 1991)

20 years! (yikes! I’m getting old)

Seriously, time flew.

I cannot help but feel a bit of resentment towards Facebook.

As much as I’m thankful that I’m friends with most of my class mates on Facebook (we were a small class of around 104), I feel like the mystery and the magic of high school reunions is taken away by it a bit.

I basically see all of my class mates on a daily basis now.

Some of them I interact with, some not so much but either way, I know what everyone looks like and what they are up to.

So, booooooooooooo Facebook. Booooooooooooooooo!

here i am at my high school graduation party. just your average crazy and wild 18 year old 😉

A morning with big friends

We went to Southpointe and Lily got to hang out with her big friends and pretend to be a big girl herself.

The water features were turned off 🙁 but, the regular sprinklers would go on every now and again which was just enough water for Lily to have fun with.

Lily had a great time watching and playing with Lotus and Sam and she was all about the helping hand she got from Lotus going up the stairs. 🙂

P.S.- It’s getting really HOT too soon. I’m not complaining. I’m just sayin’…


Art in the park

It had been a while since Lily had a painting session with friends.

So, I got my mommy friends and their kiddos together and we had a lovely morning at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather. 🙂

P.S. Let me know if you notice any difference in my pictures. Will surprised me with a Nikon 3100 (thanks Will and thanks tax return!). I’m still learning how to use it but having tons of fun while doing so.



The three amigos

Lily, Sofia and Dylan.

These three are insuperable.

No matter how many kids are at the park, these three always end up together by themselves.

Lily never gets mad at Sofia, but she does grunt at Dylan.

I guess she feels like the third wheel sometimes since Dylan and Sofia are in love and Sofia is Lily’s bff.

They have been in each others lives as long as they can remember. (almost a year now)

The more time they spend together, the more they love each other.

We can’t help to just stand back and watch these three amigos.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

This morning we went to a Valentine’s Day piano concert at the Miami Beach Community Church.

It was orchestrated by one of the moms we know from the park.

She played Disney, movie and classic piano love songs.

All of Lily’s friends were there and she got to give them the hearts I made for her to hand out. (because we heart our friends!!!!)

Everyone had a great time.
