Adventures with Lola: Celebrating Two at the Happiest Place on Earth

This weekend, we celebrated Lola’s birthday by having a small celebration with family and friends. But before that, thanks to the generosity of a family friend, we headed to the Magic Kingdom. Each time we go, it is even more exciting for Lola. She couldn’t wait to go see Mickey Mouse! Here are a few photos from our day.

On Recreating the Magic

Ever so often we are presented with a chance to recreate magic.

This month I was given the opportunity to do that. Our family traveled to the Magic Kingdom in celebration of Lola’s second birthday. We were dressed in smiles, as was she. But she was also dressed in her big sister’s Minnie Mouse dress. The dress her sister wore almost eight years before when we went to Disneyland to celebrate her second birthday.

Why I Love Mornings as a Mom

My mornings keep me grounded. They remind me that as much as I think I am or would like to be, I’m not in control of everything. But they also remind me that grace abounds in all things.

Like in my husband who wakes me up gently because I ignored all three alarms on my iPhone (hello snooze).

Or my oldest daughter who comes and gives me a hug, tells me she loves me, and sits and stares lovingly at her sister before anything else.

And my littlest love who lays beside me or makes her way into my arms and lays there for a few moments, while I listen to her breathe and reflect on how precious this season is.

5 Ways We Make the Most of Our Weekends

When I returned to work full time earlier this year, I quickly realized how valuable my weekends were. Once again, I found myself longing for them. I knew that I didn’t want them to continue to be filled with errands and pit stops as we tried to squeeze in tons of activities and visit loved ones. I wanted to make the time that I did have with my family more meaningful. Even if it meant we ate at home and seldom left the house. Even if it meant I had to wear the same outfit twice the next week, because I never got around to the laundry.

When I left to resume solely working from home until I start part-time work outside of the home, I had a newfound appreciation for those two days that are often filled with tasks from our to-do lists. This was our time — Daddy was off from work, big sister out of school, and with that came a chance to be together beyond dinnertime.

These days, we are still running errands here and there, but we are also making it a point to slow down. I  am making a point to slow down. To catch my breath, to feel and experience some of the things I may have missed as I rushed through the work week. For many of us, weekends are the only days when we have our entire family together for a long period of time.

Here are five ways we try to make the most of our weekends:
