Imagine Dream Inspire

Since I cannot take outfit photos of myself that I could actually post online (I may be too critical of myself because of the babyweight issue is STILL there, or then I really am super non-photogenic), here is an outfit picture of my 8-year old's outfit. She is very much into shirts that say something, such as this: Imagine Dream Inspire. And why not, that is a beautiful message. She picks out all her own outfits, and does a pretty good job, if I may say...

Welcome Home Darling

Happiness is the homecoming of your loved one...especially when he comes home with souvenirs for everyone!

And after having been the single mother to three kids for a few days / nights - the happiness was quadrupled when daddy came home. My hat off to single mothers, it is not easy, no. way. not. ever.

But back to souvenirs. The kids got t-shirts and caps, but my souvenir was the best - a Tod's bag. A beautiful beige/brown color, classic Tod's styling and perfect work-horse size. This will be my new work bag favorite. Had to take it to work right away!

I love blogging, but just don't have the time to do it consistently. This is not a goodbye, just a note to say that even if I disappear for a while, I will be back, sooner or later..

On the heels of Mother's Day, I have been reflecting on motherhood, and myself as a mother. When I became a mother, I felt that my life was no longer just mine. I take a lot of pride in trying to be the best mother that I can be. When you stop to think about it, the responsibility is astounding - a child's need for the mother is urgent, and a mother's influence is so deep and lasting. Everything you do, all the choices you make and the way you live your life affects your children. I view my children as little miracles, and am still amazed that I have been blessed with three amazing, smart and beautiful babies. It is not always easy being a mother, after all, we are all human and flawed in one way or the other.  But one thing makes it easier, and that is the fact that a mother's love is unconditional. You always want what's best for your children...
