Hi everyone! Hope you’re all enjoying the summer so far! Can’t believe it’s already the end of July. Time is flying by (as it always does)! I’ve been visiting family in NC this week, which has been a lot of fun, but it is actually part of a transition. Which leads to my Big Announcement… The Hoch has been working on a big project in … Continue reading Big Announcement!
To be completely honest, we don’t get out much these days. Having an almost 5 year old and an almost 5 month old has been….. interesting. It’s not easy, especially in the middle of this blazing hot summer. Last night was kinda perfect though. For all 4 of us. We have a kiddie pool set up on our deck and around 7:30pm, the temperature was … Continue reading little moments
When Alba hit about 3 months, a huge weight lifted. I couldn’t have asked for a happier, easier baby… that “newborn/am I going to break this fragile thing” feeling has worn off. This being my second baby, so much is the same yet different from the first. It’s easy to lose yourself as an individual in the beginning. I found myself resisting and fighting to … Continue reading home
Happy Sunday Friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful Mother’s Day, with your mom, your children, or someone you love.❤️ I am super grateful for these women right here! The Hoch and I are taking it easy this weekend. We actually have a lot of trips coming up so we decided we’d hang around San Antonio for the next few weekends. We actually just celebrated our … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day + Staycation Fun & Tips!
Photography has always been there for me… A place that holds space for me to get lost. To find beauty. To fall in love. My photos are more like “art” to me. The depth of them express more about me and what I’m going through than about the subjects I capture. Yesterday, I sat down and made a list of things I’m grateful for and … Continue reading the depth of them
Hi Friends! How are you?! It has been a hot minute since I’ve posted here! I’ve been meaning to and have so much to share, but life sort of got in the way. 🙁 I promise I will make more of an effort to be more consistent moving forward. For today’s post, I wanted to share some more Texas Shenanigans that the Hoch and I … Continue reading Texas Roadtrip
Hi friends! As many of you know, we have been blessed with our second angel baby. Her name is Alba Louise Mohamed and she came into this world on February 26, 2019 at 9:29am weighing 8.1 lbs and 20.5 ” long. We are so in love. Kimberly flew in and is staying for a couple weeks to help us out. Today, day 6 postpartum, I … Continue reading Alba Louise
Hi Friends! It’s crazy to think that 2 years have gone by since we started this ole blog! We want to say Thank You All so much for following each of our journeys! We will continue to use this space to share our future adventures in 2018 and beyond! 🙂 To celebrate, we decided to each compile a Best Nine Photos (like on insta) as … Continue reading Best Nine
Hi y’all! Another long, overdue post here. I figured for this one, I’d talk a bit about day to day life with my host family. To start, I am teaching in a small high school in Cabildo, but am living in the small city of La Ligua (it is about a 20-minute commute). Both cities are in the Valparaíso Region about 2-2.5 hours north of … Continue reading Chile: Life Abroad
Hi all! This post is coming to you from Chile, South America! I’ve been here for a little over 15 days and am thoroughly enjoying this country so far. The people are so nice and helpful, even after hearing my not so good Spanish. The country itself is diverse with everything from deserts in the north to glaciers and penguins in the south. I am … Continue reading Santiago
