Wednesday morning instead of going to the library as usual, we went to the Miami Beach Botanical Garden for a free kids performance.
Fantasy cooking school consisted of 3 actors playing different characters and even though it was complete silliness for 1 hour, Lily and all her little friends seemed to have enjoyed their first piece of live theater.
Afterwards we enjoyed the new grounds and a little picnic.
Here are some fun pictures, happy friday everyone!

Last night while in bed, I couldn’t sleep so I started going through my cell phone pictures.
As I flipped through my pictures, I thought about how much you can tell about someone and their life by the pictures on their phone.
I kept on flipping and a huge smile came over my face and I thought, life is pretty sweet!
Don’t get me wrong, Will and I argue sometimes, I have tiring and challenging days with Lily, we’re not living in the house of our dreams, we have everyday struggles but, in this 1 bedroom apartment, we are within walking distance to good friends, the beach, parks, libraries, restaurants, culture… and, most importantly, we get to spend a lot of family time together.
This past week, Lily and I did our best to pick up where we left off and have our regular routine back by going to the park, the library, bike rides (i missed Sally like crazy!), walks on Lincoln Rd, having painting and playing sessions at home and swimming at Flamingo pool.
We are trying to spend as much time together as a family (D and K included) because Lily and I will be leaving for Portugal on monday for 1 month and Will is not coming with us this year. 🙁
A month is a long time, it’s the longest we will be apart.
Oh! And I became an aunt on wednesday!! My brother and his girlfriend in Portugal welcomed their first baby to the world.
I’m so excited to be meeting baby Dicky on tuesday. 🙂
One thing I have learned about living here in Miami is that when it comes to shoes, Lily really doesn’t need more than 2 pairs at a time.
I overbought shoes in the first year (because I’m a bit of a shoe freak) but, I learned my lesson.
As many wonderful kids shoes as there are out there, there is no need to spend money where money shouldn’t be spent.
So, this Spring/Summer season, Lily has 2 pairs of sandals.
If you have been coming here for Small Style, you know that they are the green Salt Waters (the green was on sale for a great price and it just so happens to go with EVERYTHING!) and the brown and fuschia Soft Star Shoes.
And you know what?
When those get small, I will just get her the same brands in a different color or style because they are wonderful!
Lily rocked her green Salt Waters all week long! 🙂
