Meet My Baby Brother

You would think I am being an emotional older sister by always referring to my baby brother, Joshua as my ‘baby brother’, but I can’t help it. Prior to our most recent conversations, it had been awhile since we caught up. The last time we really sat down and spoke to each other was during […]

Being a Dad: Fabian

I was going through old pictures that I completely forgot existed, when I stumbled upon this particular one of Fabian holding our then one year old. It was our first family trip to the Philippines. We were in my old bedroom that I shared with my older sister in the five years that we resided […]

Mom

It doesn’t feel like that long ago I was 16-17ish, placing my curiosities about my future in an old journal. Specifically the thought of one day having a family. It went along the lines of, “I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a mom.” Fast forward a few years later and I am […]

Meet My Sister, Jasmine

Fabian and I were both students in Great Lakes, Illinois, when we met at the ages […]

It was a night full of love, laughter and food. To summarize, it was […]

California Christmas

It is our first time celebrating the holiday season here in California, after spending almost four years on the east coast. Yes, the change is drastic, but I am loving it. I have only been residing here for roughly six months and I really…really can’t fathom living anywhere else. I love Southern California. We enjoyed […]
