"Motherhood, in its ultimate sense, has nothing to do with bearing a child, but with love, compassion and selflessness. It lies in totally giving to others."

- Amma // Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

sunday afternoons.

I treasure Sunday afternoons with my lovely family.
Especially with this little nugget, Kingston.
Unfortunately, Jesse & Lisa will be moving back to Ithica, NY in about a week to finish up Lisa's last year at Cornell. And Kingston will be moving to New York, NY to live with his mom. My heart aches thinking about all of them being so far away but I'm just going to try to soak up as much of them as I can before they leave!!!

Gardening is truly therapeutic. Although, I don't have much of a green thumb I have put my best effort into maintaining a small garden on my balcony. It definitely brightens up my day and the every other morning that I water my garden brings purpose and routine. Everyone needs a sense of purpose and this is one form of my purpose. Like clock work I must get up in the morning and care for these little darlings. And how wonderful it is to watch nature grow and blossom.

Today or this week: grow something, even something small. Try a succulent. (That's where I started)

sunday brunch

Sushi at Casa Arigatou in Redondo Beach with my mom and Lisa.



a cancer celebration.


For Aubrey's 24th birthday we spent the day at Redondo Beach!
We picnicked, basked in the warm sun, & splashed in the refreshing water.
