A little late on the blog, but Merry Christmas!  
This Christmas was quite peaceful which I loved. Lord knows I need a lot of it. 
I went to visit my mom in the Bronx, stayed for 4 days and loved every second of it. Being with my family gives me so much peace, plus my niece and I discussed decorations for her Sweet 16 and we to pick up her dress and that was fun. She looks like a true princess!  It feels like just yesterday I was celebrating her 8th birthday at Build a Bear.  Oh did I mention that I ate SO much? Well, I did. My mom always spoils me with food and I could never say no, especially to her tamales!

Anyway, we waited for Kevin to arrive to my mom's house to open gifts on Christmas Eve night. 
He stayed in New Jersey to build Gavin's bunk beds for Christmas, which Gavin loved. 

Then on Christmas morning, we opened more gifts while A Charlie Brown Christmas movie played on TV.  Every time they danced, Gavin danced. It was very cute to watch.

 This Christmas was extra special. As most of you know this year has been tough, but Gavin has shown so much strength throughout this tough journey and we wanted to make it very special and so it was all about him. He got everything he wanted. Imagine Ink coloring books, stuffed animals from Peanuts, more Thomas & Friends trains and not to mention his Bunk Beds.  Just look at his face, it's pure joy and it warms my heart. 
 So after we got done with opening gifts, we had breakfast, played with some toys, got ready and then went over to Pop-Pop's house (Kevin's dad) to celebrate Christmas with him and yes, you guessed it, MORE presents for my little guy.  I had all intentions of wearing Red, but as you can see I decided to go the Pink route and Gavin wore a very Green sorta Christmas-y sweater.

Now Gavin and I are gonna go through his toys for donation. I explained to him that many families can't afford to receive presents, not just for Christmas, but all year round. His response was "oh no, poor families. They can have some of toys mommy".
He's still young completely to understand, but we will try our best to make sure he continues to grow up with a kind and generous heart and to help those in need. 
I hope all of you had a Christmas full of love and laughter and continue to appreciate everything you have, especially your family and your health.

Love you all, 



It's the Holidays and all honestly despite missing my family like crazy and going through some tough times without them, the holidays is what I look forward to because I get to see Gavin smile more. This year is very special, because of all he is going through and we want to make sure he has the best time and the best memories. I want him grow up and look back on how joyful his childhood was.

Going tree picking is one of Gavin's favorite Christmas traditions. He loves playing hide and seek and finding tunnels, just like the one below, which I'm glad I found because I was able to capture his best self and the best part? In the middle of the shoot, he ran up to me, hugged me and said " Mom, I love you so much" I mean, it doesn't get any better. This kid really knows how to make my heart melt, and yes, if you must know, I cried. 
My outfit: J.crew coat | Old Zara jumper (similar one here) | J.Crew turtleneck | Madewell beret (similar one here)

So Christmas miracles, are they real? I watch Hallmark Christmas movies and they make me so emotional because I wish half of the things on these movies were real. I know I can't be the only one, right? Well, if I could have one Christmas miracle it would be for Gavin to healed from this autoimmune disease.  It's all I want. That boy is my everything and for him I will believe.



Sometimes the unexpected happens and you feel like yourself again.



Hey guys, it's been a while. I feel like I start every blog post with the same line, so sorry about that, but I feel like I always need a long break in between because of my anxiety and depression, plus most of the time I find it much easier to connect with you through Instagram.  

Last weekend the weather was beautiful and had some spare time to get some shots of this casual look. It's a not a "blogger/influencer look" but I felt comfortable in it. My style has changed a lot in the past couple of years. When I started FB, I felt like I always had to be in heels and do the whole BS "yes, I go out to do my groceries in 4 to 5 inch heels" which to me was unrealistic. I was honestly faking the funk, like most bloggers do, but of course they won't admit it. So instead of trying to fit in that bubble, I'm just wearing what makes me feel comfortable, which lately are flats and sneakers with a pair of jeans and a chunky sweater. Sure I love to dress up, but I'm not gonna put in my energy into wearing a nice outfit for 30 minutes just to bullshit you. And that's one of the things that I love about myself and you. Despite the downs of social media, you have helped me be my self, be vulnerable, and be comfortable.  

So I hope you enjoy this look with my big boy ( God forbid if I call him little), which I love. 
Also I'm wearing the Luxyhair (20" clip in extensions in 160 grams, The shade is Chestnut Brown)
