Three-year-olds are awesome. When I asked Violet what she wanted to have for dinner on her birthday, she said birthday. Then she said cake. And then she finally decided on “aksa-daddy.” Not sure how spaghetti became aksadaddy, but I do know that the girl loves herself some carbohydrates. In the gift department, I asked the […]

Bianca Catherine.

So since it’s been weeks and weeks since my kid was born, and I barely remember being pregnant, it’s about time for a birth story and some photos, right? Enjoy. I woke up the morning of June 22 at around 6am with a little crampiness. I remember feeling this way the morning of Violet’s birth […]

From the land of Sweden.

Our journey actually started on Tuesday, when I took the girls out to IKEA […]
