It all started with the moon.... My blog break I guess! It wasn´t planned and trust me, it isn´t something I wanted since time in front of my computer is like my own little spa where I come out renewed and feeling better about myself. It´s like an afternoon with your best friend. The time I spend in front of this computer is where I go back and think, and feel, and empty my soul, is where I give the deserved place to the little things that matter in life. is putting the bits that matter in place so that it holds everything together, because yes a house is made out of bricks but if there isn't anything to hold the bricks together well I guess there wouldn´t be a wall, much less a house!
So yes, the little pieces of life that go by everyday without being noticed or perceived as grand is really what makes me me, and what makes this family ¨home´! That is one of the reasons I am also in love with my phone camera, it is my witness to this little moments that are so amazing!
This past month went by in a bliss, but when I downloaded the pics from my phone I remembered.... I remember that lunar eclipse which wasn´t about the moon to me, but about the time we spent in our backyard waiting for the moon to turn red, how much we laughed while we were trying to take the perfect pictures with our cels and a pair of binoculars, and Ari´s face not really understanding what we were doing out there, but enjoying her family every bit as much as all of us. So that lunar eclipse as you can see was much more than that... because you can find thousands of pictures of the moon that day but none of the way that night went...
Then I had my first major event with my line of dresses PetuniaCollection. One very well know department store here in Caracas took me in to be part of their brand, and bought some pretty decent number of Petunia´s dresses... I was over the moon happy and when they had a major opening of a new store, they invited me to attend. Of course I brought my girls with me and Ari was wearing one of my dresses.... The plan was to show her off..... but you guessed right, she cried the whole time, had to hold her, she wouldn´t let me take a decent picture of her, I tried to smile through the whole thing, but it was soo hard... I just wanted the whole thing to be over fast go home and take my high heels off!!! haha Once we left the store, of course, she turned back into her sweet happy self!
And while I still don´t understand where time went, my first baby is all grown up and beautiful. I literally have to bite my tongue not to tell her every minute of every day how gorgeous she is. Because remember, I have always told them that what matters is inside!
This I cherish too, for some people it might be crazy.... but I spent I don´t know how much time singing happy birhtday to at least half of the animals down here. I am sure we sang to the dog, the cat, the pony, the horse, the sheep, the other dog, the little one.... Ari, me..... oh my.... haha... that day we were late to school, but is was well worth it!
We don´t have seasons change around here, no different smells, no sweaters to be taken out of the closet, no pumpkin patch to go take pictures at,... but we have a hammock in our house every single day of the year!
oooh.... and there was the day we saw my dad in traffic!!!! we had a blast!!!
and while the world is revolving fast, my Emi is enjoying her tween years this much!
and waking up to kisses and snuggles from this little one.... I don´t have to tell you much about this, am sure if you are a mom you know the feeling!
This was my October, no change in seasons, same ol scenery, but thankfully same sweet little faces to fill my life with different colors everyday!!!
