Chloe’s school is hosting a Tech Media night in few days and her friend asked her to do a poster for his booth. Theme: Google Classroom

She has a lot to do so Shane offered to help with coloring. Love seeing the kids helping each other. 🙂

my first day as a stay-at-home mom
March 1st, 2018 | Category: chloe, food, friends, shane

Kids are so psyched and they have been counting days. They were super happy to see me at pick-up (even though I always did on Tuesdays and Fridays before), but I guess todays special because they know they’ll never have to go to AfterCare again!

We spontaneously decided to go to Blended bowls for some yummy açaí bowls to celebrate my early retirement. 🙂

Now that I’m home I plan to make up for all the play dates they couldn’t do before…

Farewell from my team

My team arranged for a little get together before I left and got me a beautiful flower arrangement for me to leave with.

Thanks everyone!


closing a chapter…
February 28th, 2018 | Category: art + design, friends, inspirations

Today I closed a chapter in my life. I resigned from my job after working full-time for 13+ years as a director/designer. It was a tough decision that I struggled with and prayed about for several months and after going through all kinds of emotions, I finally decided to let it go… This was a choice we made as a family when we decided to “simplify” our lives. As much as I would like to think I was good at balancing my kids and my career, the truth was, I was not… I was too busy, doing too many things and was always on the go, rushing my kids along. I chose to take a few steps back and reprioritize my life. It’s nerve-wracking to think that I’m letting go of a career I’ve been building for 21 years, but I came to realize the most important job I needed to be best at is being a mom and a wife.
I have been so blessed to do what I love for a living and met so many wonderful people in my industry who became my closest friends. As much as I’m sad, I’m also excited to relax a little, spend more quality time with my family and most excited about driving kids to school in my pjs tomorrow morning!

I’ll miss this place…

Celebratory lunch with my co-workers. Cheers!
I’ll be working with them as a consultant. 😉
