You Are Stronger Than You Realize

I saw a quote today that really stuck with me: “This is tough, but I am tougher.” During this chaotic time in our lives, I really want to focus on what I do have. And to remind myself that being “stuck” at home is tough, but I am tougher. This week marks week 3 of…

The Questionable Asian

Sharing my #AsianStory for my Mixed Asian Children Happy Year of the Rat! With it being Lunar New Year, I thought it would be fitting to share my #AsianStory. This is a hashtag that has been floating around the Asian Instagram community for the new year so I thought it would be perfect for my…

Let Us Be Better

I never intended my second post for the month to be this serious. But like I’ve said, life happens, and I just wanted to share what has been on my mind. There have been two moments in my life where I’ve neared death… The first was on Christmas Day 9-years ago. Our car spun across…

Farewell 2019: My 2019 Reflection

Can you guys believe there’s only one full day left in 2019? I feel like I’ve said this a million times on my blog, but time is really going by so quickly. I feel like ever since I became a mom, every year has just gone by faster and faster. I can still remember Zayanna’s…

A Letter To My Daughter On Her 29th Birthday

I turned 29 a few days ago. Not much excitement comes to mind when you tell someone you’re 29. For the most part, you start your countdown to 30. I’m actually one of the last of my friends to hit this age so sometimes I feel like I’ve been this age for awhile now. Honestly…

We Have a 4-Year-Old

We’ve hit another milestone in our household. Our eldest daughter turned 4 a few days ago. For awhile I actually already thought she was 4, only cause of how articulate she is. But this past Monday it became official. And because she is now at an age where she really understands what birthdays are, we…

Where to Eat in NYC: A First Timer’s Guide

Anyone who knows my husband and I would tell you that we love to eat. I mean seriously, who doesn’t? One of the things that keeps our relationship together is our mutual love for the same types of food. He always jokes that he only married me because he loves my cooking, but I’m pretty…
