The Sweet Life…

 
The weekend brought so many sweet treats... The Martini Party happened...  finally. Sweet friends gather at sunset to celebrate ourselves...love and life. Friends gather laughed for hours... enjoyed yummy treats and conversation until the sun almost came up... Not many images were captured… you know how it goes... When good times happen and you are laughing really hard it is impossible to take pictures...

  Maia is NOT having a Martini... Just Lemonade =)


Then I think... hey my days can't get any better...But that is when I am so wrong.
And I forgive myself for being so foolish and enjoy some more of the sweet life...
More magical moments... because we create magic when we allow ourselves to be happy and authentic.

No matter how old you are in my home everyone hunts for eggs on Easter.

Behold the power of leaving town crossing a bridge and arriving to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.
John F. Kennedy





 The ocean can heal anything. When I feel blue… I go somewhere bluer… and then I feel tiny and beautiful and full of life. I become appreciative of my surroundings and people.

Then magic happens… as soon as I allow myself to be happy...
Magic...magic creates itself all around you and even a majestic stork will come your way and say hello...

Her body is all sticky from the sea water and sunscreen and she is asleep in my arms and I want this day to never... ever... end.

Mia has brought a sense of new beginnings to our family as a whole... a beginning to all things...wonder, hope and new possibilities.

The air is cool and salty and as the wind blows the air feels like kisses from a thousand angels on my face...  and I am so happy and I feel overjoyed...because we all know is not easy to haul and pack for three kids and two adults...but we make it happen because we know in the end it will be so worth it.

Watching my three kids happy and in peace...to me... is what dreams are made of.
They play... they laugh... they ask questions.
We laugh again and is all worth it...The patience pays off... and then we are glad to get to that point... you know that point when you look around and you tell yourself I am so glad we did this...

We are blissful... This is bliss.

Her energy is contagious...

Playtime...the imagination of a child knows no boundaries...

A successful journey when all three kids are asleep in the back seat...
