Project 52:42 | Thoughtful


Motherhood is... thoughtful Today was one of those days where you just wanted work to be over and you wanted to cuddle up in bed with your husband and little girl.  Just before I had given up on the day of my friends and coworkers came in my office with this and some ice cream.  Pam knows the key to my heart and is one of the most thoughtful friends I have come to know and love during the last couple years.

Project 52:41 | Beautiful


Motherhood is... beautiful There are many things about Los Angeles that I take for granted and it's hidden beauty is one of them.  Even though I know that we will eventually move to Hawaii, Los Angeles will always hold a special place in my heart because it was where I fell in love with Lucas and where we started our family.  Sunsets like this remind me why it is beautiful even when you are stuck in traffic.

Daddy, Can I Have a Harley?

Harley Ride

I bet Lucas never thought he was going to have to see the day when Ke'alohi wanted to buy a Harley Davidson.  We were walking around Toys 'R' Us (big mistake) when Ke'alohi saw it,  a pink motorized Harley Davidson.  She was completely obsessed with it and didn't want to get off once she was playing on it. Hopefully she will forget about it and not ask Santa for it for Christmas.  Hahaha. … [Read more...]
