The Mom Song

Okay, whether you are a mom or just have a mom I think you will agree with me that the video below is hilarious, but so true. Moms do so much...I know my mom did while I was growing up and still does. I love you mami...this one is for you!

P.S. I never usually pass along these types of emails, but this was was too good not to share.

Experience the Inauguration

A friend of mine sent me this link and I thought I would share it with all of you. It really gives you a feel of what it was like to be there that day:

Catching Up...

I am finally getting the chance to organize videos and photos from recent months. Here are some videos that my friend Caroline took while she was here visiting from Paris during the month of November. I think Luka thought that Caro was his first girlfriend and he was always hamming it up for her. Take a look...

Hello from Morocco

No, I am not in Morocco. Luka and I made it safe and sound to Maputo. We are very happy to be home, but the homecoming was bittersweet since JJ was called to Morocco to help out with the embassy there for a couple of weeks. So we haven't seen him since January 7th, but he will be home soon.. For now I will share with you the rainbow he sent me from Fes, Morocco (city he visited this weekend).

On another note I have started to upload the photos from our be sure to check out our photo album when you get a chance.

We were there! It was amazing. Next to my wedding day and the day we brought Luka will be one of the most amazing experiences in my life and my sister was the perfect person to share it with. From the concert on The Mall and exploring DC with the kids and ending with the has been the trip of a lifetime. We were there when history was made!

I will give more details later, but for now you can read our story on the Miami Herald online @

By the way....a HUGE THANK YOU goes to my brother-in-law, Wole, for taking care of Luka and Max so that we could attend the inauguration!

Here is a link to the photo book I created from our trip:
