I'm just a mom with a camera and this is my curated life. 📷
Our oldest celebrates his 14th birthday today. His first year as a teenager was quite a rocky one. I'm holding out hope that things will just get better from here. 🤞🏼
🍁Trying to find the balance between Martha and Mary today—between my to-do lists and being present for my family and my faith. 🍁#monday
Dreaming of trucks :: My little man is in that in-between stage of not needing a nap so early in the afternoon but falling asleep later and waking just before dinner time. It has pushed bedtimes so late for us. It doesn't help that he has older siblings that need driving around which messes up his nap schedule. Today he napped for close to three hours which was such a blessing. #planetazikiel
Yes it says 27°F around dinnertime. It's already cooled down a few more degrees since and we will have a dusting of snow soon. On the upside, we just paid off the 🚗 car loan! Yasss! 😁
🎃Checking off the pumpkin patch from the Fall Manifesto. Tomorrow we carve pumpkins! 🎃

Midnight snack :: I got really hungry at 10:30 since I didn't really eat dinner tonight. I know I've turned into my mom when I can look at an almost empty fridge and cook up something quite delicious. #tomkhagai#goals
Every. Single. Day. :: After weaning, this was the only way he would fall asleep. It's been almost a year now and it's been much of the same. I don't mind most of the time (unless he has sharp nails 😯). I know it won't last forever.
Art show :: we needed something new to keep #planetazikiel occupied this week. Paints did the trick. He was so proud of his artwork, especially after we taped it up into his own little art gallery. ❤️
After a whole week of cloudy weather, the skies finally opened up to give a glorious welcome to October. The first glimpse of snow on #pikespeak never cease to amaze me. Definitely a great motivation for my #morningrun.
The biggest sandbox in the world :: we got to check off another item in our #colorado#bucketlist and check out the amazing Great Sand Dunes nestled in the Rocky Mountains.
Soul food :: I have not been feeling up to my usual self lately. Not feeling up to taking photos. Or do much memory keeping. So it's been quiet here. But I'm slowly on the mend especially when I do things to take care of myself. Like making #greencurry for our lunch and dinner today. 🍽
