D.C. Fun! 

Hi everyone! I hope everyone has an amazing Easter weekend, and got to enjoy the nice weather! We definitely enjoyed ours. 

Erwin and I had been wanting to go to D.C. for a while, and we finally did! The main reason why we wanted to was because of the cherry blossoms, but we were too late for them this year :/ but it was still beautiful and the weather was so, so nice- so it was a fun time anyway. 


We had a chance to take pictures too, finally! We’ve been so busy with Erwin working, me going to school, getting stuff packed to move and finding a new place to go- it’s just been crazy! So it was really refreshing to be able to enjoy the day. It brought back some nice memories from last year when I was still pregnant with Gio. 


As some of you may know already, Erwin loves taking pictures so we tried to find spots to take pictures, and he got some really nice shots! 


Gio did really well the whole trip despite it being warm and sunny. I packed him plenty of snacks and a purée, cold water, and milk (we carry a thermostat to keep drinks either warm or cool- comes so in handy! I got it at WalMart). I also took and put on him, his Aveeno sunscreen. Like I’ve mentioned, Gio has mild eczema so we’re picky on what we use for him, but either way, I highly recommend Aveeno for ANYONE. It’s such a great brand. That day Gio also wore a very light blue shirt, also light in material, and denim shorts to keep him comfy and refreshed. 

We walked around D.C. for two hours maybe? We really didn’t feel the time since we were just truly enjoying each other’s company and being out. We went to the Washington Monument, Tidal Basin, World War ll memorial, and the Floral Library. 



After D.C. we head home and stayed there for the rest of the day. We had Jeremy with us and we were able to give him his Easter basket. We collected a bunch a small things that we figured he would like and enjoy. It consisted of: chalk/bean bags, a gumball machine, emoji bubbles, candy, and a few of those little surprise toy bags. He was very happy with it which was great! 

For the rest of the day we all played and simply hung out together! It was a really nice day 🙂 

Bye guys! Xoxo 

Cherry Blossoms

 My boyfriend and I made a trip to D.C. to see the cherry blossom trees and let me tell you- they’re beautiful! Unfortunately they haven’t fully blossomed yet, but they’re on their way and already so stunning. If you’re in the area, live close by, or can make a trip to visit I recommend you definitely do so. I’m positive the Cherry Blossom festival started this past weekend and goes until the 9th of April so you guys should definitely try and find your way there- you won’t regret it!


Now, I read there are trees spread around the district, but my boyfriend and I spent time walking around the Tidal Bassin (where the festival is located). There was a pretty decent crowd of people so I can only imagine on the weekend and really nice days.

Here’s a little background for you guys: the trees are beautiful to admire and go take pictures with, but for many who may not know, they also have a true significance to them. In the Japenese culture they represent the fragility and beauty of life, but also how sadly short life can be.


Being around such beauty reminded me how to appreciate every single moment to the fullest because in a second everything can be gone. It might have been one of the first times these past few months I didn’t complain about walking a lot, lol.
