I’m currently struggling in bed wishing that today I can walk out the door and it be sunny and warm. Daylight savings maybe this Sunday and Spring is only a few weeks away but gosh darn it I want Summer to be here already!
What makes it harder is working at Tommy Bahama where you first walk in you instantly forget about cold weather.
I’m looking forward to wearing flip flops everyday and not wearing a heavy coat all the time. Not having to worry about layering.
I can’t wait to start our first garden this year. I am determined! I want tomatoes, herbs, cucumbers, peppers, kale, and FLOWERS. Lots of flowers, so I can place them on my dining table every week. I want my boys to experience gardening. To plant a seed and watch life grow before their eyes.
I can’t wait to do our family walks again. Going to the park and driving with our widows down. These moments will be extra precious since this will be my first spring/summer working full time.
So Spring hurry up and come, Winter you are already a thing of the past in my book.
Today I received an email from Tumblr marking the blog’s four year anniversary. I just can’t believe four years has past. Four years ago I was living in Hartford with my ex and his mom while pregnant with Adonis. We were excited and planning on our little boy’s arrival. I was also working as a hostess/server at Ruby Tuesday. Not fully knowing where my life is going aside from becoming a mother.
My relationship with my ex was not stable and he was quite controlling and mentally abusive. But fast forward to now…holy crap it doesn’t seem real. Even though I went through so much, the end result I wouldn’t change my past even if I could. I have two beautiful boys, a wonderful and amazing fiancé, and I’m off to a good start on my career as a visual merchandiser. Seriously I feel like I’m on cloud nine.
I don’t mean to brag but you know sometimes (excuse my french) shit has to hit the fan before everything is all sunshine and rainbows -even then it’s still not prefect. Nico and I have had our issues and we still do, but we work through it. We are in it for the long hall. I’m a lucky gal, Nico has really proven to me that there’s a good man out there for me and sometimes I question do I really deserve all this?
And my boys! Ugh Adonis is going to be FOUR this May! And Luca, he turned 18 months this past Sunday! Seriously after having a baby shower filled weekend I’m beginning to have baby fever. Nico says hell no, but I’m hoping after the wedding we can plan a third. ;)
Anyways happy four years! We started off just documenting my pregnancy and recording milestones then progressed to being a single mama, and now this I don’t even know what to call it- maybe dream come true- ha I know cheesy right but hey I wish all the joy and love to you all because we all deserve to catch a break at some point in our lives!
Had to pick up this little guy from daycare early. He was not feeling well so we took him to see the doctor. He had a 105 degree fever and turned out to have a throat infection. We got him some antibiotics and I will be giving him the homemade honey cough syrup before bed. We are currently cuddling on the couch and he is doing much better❤️
