Twin Babies Photo Shoot / Sesión de Fotos Para Gemelos

My friend had twin baby girls and I got a chance to take photos for them.  I love babies. I delivered four myself.  But now, my 4 are a little grown and there’s no more babies in the house.  So, when I get a chance to be around babies, I love it! Mi amigo tenía…

How to Live Life Fully / Cómo Vivir Una Vida Bien

How to Live Life Fully / Cómo Vivir Una Vida Bien

I’ve been trying to write this post for awhile and wasn’t sure exactly how I was going to do it. My mom passed away this summer and it was very sudden. One week we were traveling in Italy together, on the beautiful Amalfi coast. The next I was giving the eulogy at her funeral in California….

How to Make a Summer Bucket List  / Hacer una Lista de Cosas Para Hacer Este Verano

Every summer I make a Summer Bucket List for the family, a list of things we want to accomplish before summer vacation is over. The kids always anticipate it but this year I was a little late. But as always, better late than never. Now, there’s a lot of Bucket Lists out there that you…

Sharing Your Hobbies with Your Kids / Compartiendo Tus Aficiones con Tus Hijos

This week I took a day to spend alone time with each child. With my oldest (she’s 12), we grabbed coffee and juice at our favorite cafe then had our own photography class. I love photography and I wanted to see if she wanted to learn a few things. She did! Esta semana me tomó…

Let Your Kids Be Bored / Deje que sus Hijos Sean Aburridos

Let Your Kids Be Bored / Deje que sus Hijos Sean Aburridos

We are in summer and there are plenty of days when I hear the kids say, “I’m bored!”  It’s tempting sometimes to immediately provide something for them to do or to fill their hours and minutes with activity.  Of course, that’s not a bad thing.  But sometimes, it’s good to let them use their brain…

How to Take Summer iPhone Photos/ Comó Tomar iPhone Fotos de Verano

I love this shot in the early morning light.  I have to admit, I caught this on accident (but many great photos are accidental, aren’t they?).  I love the shadow of the jumping kid and the air underneath his feet, as he practices throwing. You may not have a great camera but most of us…

How to Blog with Joy / Cómo Hacer un Blog con Alegría

Hey friends! It’s been awhile since you’ve heard from me.  To be honest, I’ve been bored.  I get bored easily. Even with myself. So, to “unbore” myself, I’ve gotta take this blog in a new direction. I’ve realized that I’ve been writing this blog for other people, thinking too much about what I think people…

La Importancia de Artes de Teatro / The Importance of Theater Arts

Es una pena que un montón de escuelas en los Estados Unidos están recortando sus programas de arte y música, debido a la falta de fondos. Y debido a que las pruebas estandarizadas, las clases ya no tienen el tiempo para espectáculos y programas de artes teatrales. It’s a shame that lots of school back…
