Live It UP {a little}

5 months ago I had Lucas, my third (and last) baby, and even though during this pregnancy I gained a whopping 64 pounds (!!!), I knew all along that this time, when it was all over, I could finally have my body back for good. So, for the past few months I have counted calories, ate so many vegetables to last me a lifetime, spent many painful hours at the gym, and most of all, admired the latest fashion in the stores dreaming of the day I could fit again in my clothes. Finally, I am almost there. I lost 56 pounds and my clothes are starting to fit again. Although, I am still counting calories and going to the gym, one thing has changed: I am not just window shopping anymore, now I go in the stores and get out with my hands full of bags! And, I am LOVING IT!  Posted by Picasa

Need I say more? This is just a little spec of my TEA collection. I love tea and at this very moment the White Chocolate Mousse is my favorite flavor. A morning without tea is like a morning without sun for me. SUN, this is another component strictly necessary to start my day on the right way. I am a summer person, I love the heat, the sun and the beginning of the day when the air is still fresh and clean.
We are getting ready to remodel our kitchen and I made sure in my new kitchen there was going to be a little corner where I could enjoy the early hours of the day when the sun is up and I can enjoy it while drinking my cup of tea.

Love these moments, totally, utterly love them!! I wish they would last forever but work is waiting for me, so I have to go and break the magic.
Today is a sunny day and everything feels right.
Have a great day everyone!

Studio Friday: Contrast

"...something about contrast, or juxtaposition. it could mean something concrete, like a contrast in colors, textures, or lines. . .or something more symbolic."

This is my interpretation of contrast.

Black and White
Focus and Lack of it
Children and Adults
Day and Night

Say Cheese!!!

I give up!!!! This is what I get when I try to take pictures of my three boys together. Why am I not one of the lucky ones who has sweet and patient kids which will do what I ask of them? Mind that this awesome (sarcasm here!) picture is the best among many taken that night, I am telling you it is impossible, so..... I officially give up!!! Posted by Picasa

Studio Friday: Sounds

What are the sounds in your studio? Sit quietly and listen. I am sure you'll be surprised at what you hear!

The sounds I hear when I am in my studion are many, including the children calling, the cartoons playing, but when I am working, the sounds that really matter are the ones I allow myself to hear... and that's my music.

Another birthday already?

Guess who's birthday was yesterday? Yes, you got it right, it was mine! And while we won't spend much time discussing age (let's not spend any time at all!), let me tell you that my boys (and this includes daddy) made my evening very special! A take out dinner of my favorite Tai food, and a wonderful and tasty cheescake can help you forget even the most stressful and tiring workday (trust me, yesterday it was one of those days!). And, to end on a high note... look at my birthday presents!!! I wanted them for a while, and here they are!! My iPod Nano will come with me to the gym today (that cheescake was good, but there are serious consequences!!). I have already downloaded a bunch of songs last night (very addictive!) and my camera is itching for the new lens!
Thank you boys, my birthday was very special!!
