Poetry - Endlessly.

I cannot believe May is over and this year is almost half-way through. WOW! 2018 you are flying by! I had a very challenging, tear-inducing and tough May to say the least. I think it even inspired the poem I am writing today on the blog. The idea is that no matter what we go through in life and despite every difficulty and challenge thrown at us, we have to surpass them, continue our lives, move on, survive and smile, at the end. =) Life goes on, as bad as some days get, as hopeless as we feel at times, life goes on and we have to continue thriving!!

Endlessly! (June 1st 2018).
Endlessly, we wake up in the morning and greet the sun, drink our coffee and start our day, hoping for the best, go to work to make some money and pay our bills, grab some lunch on the go and so on with the rest!
Endlessly, we find reasons to be happy and smile, look around and find all the flowers and smell them within, stop and stare at the moon, the stars and the sun for a while, take a deep breath and take all the be…

Thursday Moda #117: Memorial Day Casual.

 Happy Thursday Everyone! It rarely happens that I post an outfit that I wore that same week... but today is one of those days. Vivian and I wore these breezy, comfortable Summery looks this past Monday for Memorial Day. =) And speaking of my sweet girl Vivi, you guys love it when we do our Mommy+Me posts so this week I got two of them, two in a row actually. Well, in yesterday's post I talked about my special dates with my little girl, how we love going out for coffee, ice-cream, lunch, visiting a cute down-town or going to a park, the library, etc. On Memorial Day (this past Monday) since it was a very hot 93 degrees, I took Vivian to the local mall for her to play at the indoor playground. We grabbed some cool drinks and some snacks there too. If it was up to me, we'd rather go to the beach but we have been fighting a cold (both of us) for over a week (we still have a harsh cough) and though the temps were super hot, our Michigan Winter was long and freezing so the lakes…

Mommy+Mini Spring Style: Ponte Dresses in Howell, Michigan.

I love Sundays spent with my daughter. It is my only full day off every week and I make sure to spend it with Vivian. We don't always go out and even when we do it doesn't have to be anything too fancy. But if the weather is nice, I love checking out one of the cute down-towns in a city nearby, a cute cafe or maybe grabbing a bite to eat. This time around we checked out Howell, MI. It is about 20 miles away from where we live. They have a small (but not too small) downtown filled with local restaurants, cafes, a few shops, a theater, some churches and also a museum and a couple of lapidars in regards to the World War II. It has a lot of history and patriotism for a small town. We grabbed a yummy cappuccino at a local cafe called "Uptown Coffeehouse" where a lot of youth was attending.
For this day in the late 50s (it was April 29th by the way) but full of sunshine, I opted for my White+Black Striped Ponte Mini Dress by Old Navy paired with my Ochre Long Chenille Cardi…
