Monthly Best: October 2017

Monthly Best: October 2017
October flew by, didn't it? This month consisted of me trying to get a routine going and getting more efficient at being a mom. Things that were very challenging less than two months ago, come very naturally now. I've been trying to keep up with the blog as well, and discovering new healthy recipes that fit my new lifestyle, aka quick recipes that are healthy too. Not much to say, as I said a lot recently

Monthly Best: September 2017
What a month! Life changing. I'm a mom now. Kinda crazy. Well, since August 24th. So, I've spent September adjusting to this new life, which is hard to adjust to because every week is different with a newborn. But it has been getting a bit easier over time. (more…)

Monthly Best: July 2017

Monthly Best: July 2017
July 2017 was an interesting month. The biggest thing that happened, was that we moved, again. But this time we didn't move to a different state or even country, we moved within the same city. So the process was relatively smooth but there's always some stress and work with a move. There was also a lot of gelato eating this month, which is appropriate with the increasing temperatures. Check out the best posts of the

Monthly Best: June 2017

Monthly Best: June 2017
June. 2017... June marked the beginning of summer. June also brought some very fun moments including a Broadway performance and a laugh-out-loud-by-yourself-at-home internet video. June also brought a lot of emotional ups and downs for me, 99% sure they were completely related to pregnancy hormones. There were also some awesome thunderstorms I enjoyed as much as some cookies and brownies I had this month too. (more…)

Monthly Best: May 2017

Monthly Best: May 2017
May 2017 marked the month when it officially became a bit too hot for my taste here in Austin. But at the same time, we had several thunderstorms, which is pretty cool. I also started baking again, which is kind of bad timing because it's hot out and turning up the oven is not ideal. (more…)

Monthly Best: April 2017

Monthly Best: April 2017
I feel like a lot happened in April but I can't really pinpoint events out of the top of my head. I feel like I'm crashing from a long morning as I write this and I can't think very well. I actually feel like I need a nap even though I don't like naps, but I still have plenty to do in the next few hours. April was interesting in my life. But here are

Monthly Best: March 2017

Monthly Best: March 2017
March 2017 went by pretty fast I have to say. There was a lot of internal growth and introspection done on my part. I also got to know my local city a little better and started to see why people love it so much. But I am still dreading the summer heat + humidity and the mosquitoes that come with it. I'll just have to deal with it. I was told (by a local friendly stranger waiting

Monthly Best Of: November 2016

November. How was November? Let me try to remember... It was pretty routine. Cook, clean, work, physical therapy, shop, repeat. I did go to the movies several times, which is nice. I also attended a few parties and gatherings, which is actually not the norm in my life. There was definitely some stress from that, and some enjoyable moments. It also finally cooled down (the weather I mean), which is great. 2016 is almost over

Monthly Best Of: October 2016

Is it just me, or did October FLY by? Can you believe it's November already? I especially can't because it is frickin' 87 degrees here. I'm hoping November flies by too because I'm really looking forward to December. Below are the best posts of the month, in case you missed any: (more…)

Monthly Best Of: September 2016

Interesting month. Moved into a new apartment, settled into a new city, started some new classes... Hurdled over a ton of life's obstacles. Tough track. It's been a crazy year, definitely is crowned one of my most intense ones of my life, and I feel like the year is going to continue to be crazy until the end. I'm curious to see what October, November, and December bring, hopefully more good than bad things.  (more…)
