Happy monday everyone! How was your weekend?

We were pretty chill here and even though things like unpacking, organizing and grocery shopping got done, I felt anxious.

Maybe it was the full moon (and that time of the month at the same time, sorry if tmi) but, I think it’s the fact that it’s a new year and I know we have changes coming our way.

We have a future move (within Miami) and perhaps a future pregnancy (yes, you read that right) to look forward to and until then I just sort of feel like I’m in a transition/stagnant period because there is nothing else going on.

Well, nothing else other than every day busy life that is…

Anyway, here are some cell pics from southpoint yesterday.

brunch on the balcony and shadows

almost 80 degrees in the sun. i won’t start complaining yet (even though i want to!)


Lily’s 2nd birthday

Yesterday when Lily woke up, Will and I walked in her room together and sang Happy Birthday to her.

Not fully awake yet, she didn’t really know what to make of this birthday stuff we had been talking to her about for days.

Next came the cupcake with a candle, another Happy Birthday was sang and then some presents were opened.

She was so overwhelmed by all the spotlight on her that she decided to share her birthday with Elmo and therefore Elmo turned 2 yesterday as well.

When asked what she wanted to do in the morning, she chose a bike ride to Southpoint park.

She went on the swings, the slide, ran around (with Elmo of course)…

At lunch time I decided to share a birthday tradition of mine and treat her to some french toast, potatoes, eggs and orange juice at Front Porch Cafe.

Once home, we watched Pino-Q!, played in her room and the late afternoon was spent running around on Lincoln Rd in the nice breezy and cool air we have been having.

Lily had calls from WV and Portugal where birthdays were sang to her all throughout the day.

I think she had a great day and she was a very happy 2 year old.

I would also like to thank all of you who left comments on here and of course all of our friends on Facebook for all the wonderful birthday wishes for Lily. Thank you all so much!

so this is what this birthday stuff is all about?

took a little encouragement but she blew her candle like a pro
