It’s A Baby Brody Weekend!

     There’s a new baby getting ready to make his appearance into our family. Baby Brody, due this December, has us all waiting with excitement. My daughter moved away a few months ago, but that did not stop her from coming back home for her South Florida Baby Shower a few weeks ago. What a joyful weekend that was. All of you moms out there know that when your children are grown and living away, there is a certain kind of happiness we feel when we have them all together once again.

From sisters to friends to family, we all gathered for a great Baby Shower with Mimosas in hand, and the Photo Booth that was a hit!

The following day, the celebration continued with a typical Cuban party celebrating family. The music was playing, the guests were dancing, and we all indulged in great food and spectacular drinks. I’m content in saying that the beauty of our family parties is that we gather in love and good cheer, always leaving a good memory in everyone’s minds. I can only hope that my children will one day think back to all of the good times we’ve shared, and smile knowing that they were loved beyond words.

     Sometimes we stop to take an assessment of where we are in life. I seem to do that every year around my birthday and on New Years Eve, but that weekend I did it again…… and I smiled.

     Thank you for visiting my blog, it’s greatly appreciated.

                                                 


WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FAMILY

Image

When seeing the weekly photo challenge, I immediately went looking for a family photo. I take pictures on a weekly basis, journaling my life and the lives of my loved ones with pictures. I would love to see old photos of my parents, grandparents, etc. but I know that I never, ever will. Because of this, and knowing how important it is to be able to look back and actually see where your family came from, I take shot after shot of every event. I do this so that one day, my children can actually look back at the memories we created and pass them on to their children.

The photo above was taken when we all went to see a Disney movie with my granddaughter. As usual, I’m behind the camera but pictured are my children, granddaughter and my mother. We normally run on different schedules, and rarely all go to the movies, and a Disney movie? Nah, that does not happen, but for our little one, we changed it all just to be there and we had a great time!

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my photo.

Peace and Love,

Lisa
