Happiness looks gorgeous on you.

Giving myself a day off today :) which means giving myself some me time once I dropped Alex at Hope, once I have cleaned the house, cooked dinner and did a laundry ;).

Me time ended up with me drawing my boy ( just in love with his gorgeous smile!!) while wearing a mud facial mask.

I took many nice photos yesterday while at Fort Funston, this was my favorite.
Happy Friday everyone!

Because...there is always Hope!!

We were thinking  to start sending Alex to daycare starting  January 2018 but things did not go as planned .
I love being a stay at home mom, don't get me wrong....but after 2 years and 2 months just at home with my boy I was in need of some time for myself.
In the past two years I have been doing my art studies on line and doing my homework mainly during nap time and early morning sometimes late at night.
One day I woke up and I was just so tired...I totally couldn't do this anymore, not one more day.
My body was on strike. Something had to change.
Went for a morning walk to Playland on 43rd and met this awesome lady and the kids she takes care in her in-house day care.
She had such a positive energy and the kids with her were so happy. I asked for a business card. Her name was Hope. Just the name I needed to hear, YES!
When you are so tired, and so sleep deprived , well, there is Hope :) to help out .
Alex joined here day care the following week, he loves it there.  Three morning a week, 15 hours per week when I can do my art with no one attached to my legs.
I managed to finish my book and I did plenty more.
I am so glad  I bumped into her!
I was just scared of letting my boy go.. because me and him we have aways been together, but it turned out to be ok. ALL IS GOOD.

So this is my Christmas gift to hope, hopefully she will like it!


There is always Hope!
with love from Laura and Alex


Thank you for everything you do for the most important little man in my life.

You are doing an awesome job with your little ones!

Love you to the moon and back.


I hade a couple of rough weeks lately, week 5 of hubby with right arm in a swing means baby care (and dog and house and all the rest!) is just all on me.
Sometimes is hard but at the end of day I am just happy and in love with my family and our little boy. 
Yesterday we had an awesome day jumping the waves here by te beach and last night he fell asleep on me super fast (!! we should go and jump the waves on a DAILY base i guess!).
I totally love him form the moon and back and more than that.

Nutella first time.

This Bibi had his first taste of nutella few days ago...
We prepared together a small slice of bread and spread the chocolate on top.
Then I walk to bedroom to start cleaning and when I walk back to the kitchen I find him with his hands inside the jar and full face covered.
And he was saying " Ancora!!!"," More" in Italian.
Mona was patiently waiting for some chocolate to fall down. Of course ;)
Way too funny not to draw :)
My bibi!!!
