she’s got a way about her

being a mommy

This post was supposed to be something totally different. But then I started going through my old photobucket account, the place where I used to house all of my photos when I was on mommy forums chatting about mommy stuff non stop. It houses nearly all the photos of when my son was a baby and when I was pregnant with my little girl. It’s a blast from the past.

It never ceases to amaze me how I can look back on days past with such rose-colored glasses. When I look at my old pictures I see a woman, a mommy that’s incredibly happy. Life in the photos seems super simple yet full. And of course, I have less wrinkles. The photos make me smile, tear up (in a good way) and get that warm nostalgic feeling.

And then it hits me.

I bet I’ll look back on pictures from NOW (like the one above) and think “hey we looked so happy then,” “boy, times seems so much more simple then,” and, “wow, look at how young I looked.”

I’m sure I’ll look back with smiles, tears and that warm feeling of nostalgia.

It reminds me to stop and remember the NOW. Stop and see myself as happy right NOW. To enjoy the simple-ness of NOW.

she’s got a way about her…

This week my little lady…that one up there turns FIVE.


For some reason, with her being my last born, my baby, I just felt like she wouldn’t grow up. But alas, she is. So this week I’m posting all about my little lady and all the awesomeness that she is…. stay tuned!


  1. One just starts singing that song automatically when reading this and it continues to run through my mind.
    Mahalo. What a good reminder to “be” right now. It’s a good thing.

  2. Happy Birthday to you both!

  3. I can’t believe they’re so big! Luke turns 5 in October, and it just amazes me.
