The miracle of life

While Lily took a long nap yesterday, I thought about how miraculous life is.

I mean, it REALLY is!!

I think we are often so caught up in every day life that we forget to think about and appreciate things.

Months before I got pregnant with Lily, I had a miscarriage.

Then, on March 02 2009, a day after Will proposed to me, I found out I was pregnant! 🙂

To go from nothing, to a little fetus, to a bigger fetus, to a baby…

Life… it is such a miracle!

Overwhelmed

Lately I have been feeling very overwhelmed.

Overwhelmed by how long it has been since I have seen my family.

Overwhelmed with trying to buy tickets to Portugal and when to go.

Overwhelmed by how fast Lily is growing and how big she is. (can’t believe she is almost 10 months old!)

Overwhelmed by how hot it is. (summers in Miami kill me)

Overwhelmed by how unmotivated I am lately. (I think it’s the heat, it makes me lethargic)

Overwhelmed by how long it has been since I have painted. (afraid I don’t even know how to anymore…)

Overwhelmed with trying to make a decision about moving. Do we stay in Miami or do we go somewhere else? (the heat plays a huge factor)

Overwhelmed by the loss of a friend.

Overwhelmed by the birth of another. (isn’t it ironic how that works…)

Overwhelmed by life…

In loving memory

Yesterday was a sad day.

We lost a friend yesterday.

Darnell was bigger than life!

His smile, his laugh, his sense of humor, his love for food, his love for people, his love for fashion, his love for life…

We all lost him too soon.

He will be missed by many but I know that wherever he is, Darnell is shining down on us with the biggest smile.

Rest in peace Darnell.

and a SHOUT OUT to…

ADE!!!!!!!

He turned 6 last week and we went to his birthday party yesterday to celebrate his birthday with him, his family and friends.

I have gone to his birthday parties since he turned 1. I can’t believe he is 6 already and that this time around I had Lily with me.

Life.  Wow, amazing!

Ade, the handsome birthday boy
