here we go 2014…..

3 Jan


hooray for 2014!!!

i’ve never been really good a keeping my new years resolutions,

so this year i’ve decided to focus more on

making mini goals for my self throughout the whole year.

sort of like makeovers for different parts of my life,

like bettering my soul, my family, my outlook on life in general.

i want to be more open-minded to change

and see only positive in everything and everyone.

so i guess that’s still pretty much a resolution, huh?

well i’ll try it out and let you know how it goes.


so many wonderful things happen for us in 2013,

the most obvious one being little matteo,

but something tells me 2014 is going to be pretty great too.

and so the adventure continues for us,

now just with baby included!!!

can’t wait to share them with you!


so happy new year friends!

make it a good one!


spring has sprung…..in our backyard

17 Apr

herb shower

my father-in-law pino was here a couple weeks ago.

the weather was warm

and it was feeling like spring.

in the two weeks he was here, boy did we keep him busy (poor guy)

our backyard was looking a little sad and unattended

and pino insisted that we needed an herb garden, plus a couple fruit trees!

and that is just what happened.

me being about 5 months pregnant, i wasn’t much help

but i did have a lot of helpers.

(thank you family)

here’s a look at how things turned out!!!

downstairs, pick me up!!!

20 May

my house was feeling sad and beige, so with winter over and gone and spring in the air,

i decided my downstairs needed a little life brought to it.

 this house decorating has definitely been a process.

we didn’t do much when we first moved in cuz we were planning our wedding.

so with all that excitement over, the house is getting some much needed attention.

i have a huge list of renovations and fun little projects i want to do, but here’s the start.



and after…
