Always ending the year celebrating life! Not only because is the end of a year and the beginning of another, but because on December 31, 2016 Leia was born! She will be a Two year old, lets see what 2019 brings, hopefully not to much terrible 2s drama 😹🖤 #TopNine #TopNine2018
Last night, my sis-in-law was gracious enough to come down and babysit so my husband and I could have a night alone. We went to dinner at Farmington Station and literally walked back to the car and the words that were spoken next were so funny. “So... uh, what do you want to do now?” “Ummmmm... what did we before we had kids?” “Whatever we wanted.... so, what do you want to do?” “I don’t even know.” Does anyone else’s date nights go this way? Guess where we ended up! WAL-MART! Yep, good ‘ole Wally World. We are definitely the “cool” couple on the block. You should want to be our friend.😉😂
Answers reveal themselves through action.
Is it just me, or are kids sick at the most inconvenient times...ever...? I’ve got year-end projects piling up at work, shopping to finish, baking to do...⠀
But when Christina wakes up sick, nothing else seems to matter much 🤷♀️ ⠀
After a trip to the docs to confirm she’s got pink eye, we’re enjoying our surprise morning together with Christmas music and books! 🎄⠀
Work will wait. The Christmas list will be there tomorrow. All that matters is pausing in these moments to be present with my little and making sure she’s healthy, happy, and safe ❤️
Tis the season to stay in Christmas PJs & watch Home Alone on a loop 🎅🏻❤️
It’s not everyday I bless everyone’s feed with a real cute selfie of me getting ready for the day. 🤦🏻♀️ I just have to rave about this mask!
I’ve been using the MaryKay Charcoal Mask since August once a week to every other day depending on how much sweets I’ve had causing me breakouts 😂 It works wonders for my redness and oily skin, I wake up with matte skin instead of greasy shiny skin! It is safe to say I am obsessed! Seriously contact your Mary Kay girl to get some or if you don’t have one look no further 💁🏻♀️
3am - feed the babe • 4am - help a 1 year old who coughed on her own spit and threw up • 5am - change sheets for a 5 year old who wet the bed. • 6am - suck out the tiniest stuffy nose. • 7am - get spit up on. 😂🙈I knew parents didn’t sleep but I’m pretty sure we’ve covered all and every kind of bodily fluid in one night! Anyone else in survival mode right now? We got this...right??! 😳 (👈🏻this is me literally peeling my eyes open right now!) Still just wouldn’t have it any other way. 📷: @camilialundphoto

👼🏼 Saint Nicolai 👼🏼
As you already know, we are a Moldovan family living in Italy. So, how about our holidays? Many of them are similar, and those that differ, we just combine them. In this way, this year David will have two Christmas 😍 and other celebrations twice, because in the Republic of Moldova they are celebrating holidays from another calendar, the old Julian. .
Tomorrow in Moldova will celebrate Saint Nicolai, a celebration with great significance to me (my father was Nicolai). So the legend says that Saint Nicolai is the protector of the childrens and that on this night he comes to every child to bring something, if he was good then he would receive sweets, and if he was naughty then Saint Nicolai would bring him a nugget. For this the children had to prepare the boots on December 18th, to wash them, to clean them and to put them near the stove. .
When I was little I cleaned many many boots 🤗🤗🤗

Have I mentioned how much I love her hair though?? 😍
Pretty sure this kid noticeably grew over the 3 days we were on vacation. Can there be a "slow down time" button for mamas now, please? Seriously, someone make that.
352/365: homemade essential oil playdough this morning was a big hit 😄
recipe (this makes one serving, I made two total, one for each kid): 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt, 1 TBS vegetable oil, 5-7 drops food coloring, 2 drops essential oil [we used orange & peace+calming today], 1/2 cup warm water- mix all ingredients together in that order and you’re good to go! add more flour if it’s too sticky 👌🏼
We are so excited about today! Dan is going to be on the boat for the sea-trial and survey, and I’m so jealous! But the kids would miss nap and that’s no fun for anyone, so we decided he’d go alone. He’s going to keep me updated with videos, so keep an eye on the stories!
This little man has a way of reminding me to be fearless! He reminds me everyday that when you fear nothing you can accomplish everything. ❤️
Guess who helping out backstage at @minimode_lkfw

Currently screams her head off like I’m performing some sort of exorcism while washing her hair 😩.
How is wash day for y’all? Tell me it gets better? Swipe left
Some days go smoother than others... especially when trying to be productive 😆 I may not have been able to get “all the things” done.. and I need to learn to be okay with that. When nothing was going smoothly during homeschool time, I got out the paint and let them do their thang while I played with little man. It worked out ❤️
My goal as a mom has been to be home with my children, but also to have the ability to work while I’m home with them and help support our family through my passions.
We ALL have so much opportunity right at our fingertips! •
You can literally have your cake and eat it too! 🍰 •
I’ve finally found something that fits my passions and lifestyle, and has me feeling so fulfilled when I get to help others do the same!
Doing these things has allowed me to help support our family while I’m home with my babies. 🙏🏼 #prayersanswered
If you’ve ever thought about doing this same thing... Do it! Jump! You might be terrified, worried about failing (that was me too) but even though it’s scary its soooo worth it! •
And what you’ll find is a team of empowered women cheering you on and there at the drop of a hat to help you every step of the way! 👯♀️ #morelikefamily
All clean after bath time. 🛀
Happy Father's Day to the best father a kid (or 3) could ask for. We couldn't ask for a better, more caring dad and we love you very much. Wishing you a Happy 1st Father's Day, Charlie!
They're all home now. 😍 I'm exhausted but wholeheartedly in love. Also, I couldn't do any of this without my husband. 👏
