Archives For Our Life

I really wanted to consistently blog (really I did, I wrote down ideas, took pics)… but it seems like from April until now life just got in the way and that means:

  • Realizing Baby has colic and learning how to manage
  • Taking a 3-day conference to better my business (preparing for it and then amping up biz afterwards)
  • Developing a new event in Newark – Small Business Week
  • Transitioning Baby into solids (that we are making)
  • Going right into another event I do in Hoboken & Jersey City – Hudson Restaurant Week (starts next week)
  • and now trying to spend time with my niece and nephew visiting from Mexico

It actually doesn’t seem like much as I type it, however learning to adjust to motherhood and maintaining my 14-year old business has been quite a challenge, but more sharing to come (hopefully sooner than later)

This past Easter Sunday I wanted to fast forward my 3-month old’s future. I wanted her to be able to walk, to look for things, to do crafts with me! All day, I was bombarded with pictures on Facebook of families dyeing eggs and was even sent a video of my ecstatic niece doing her first Easter Egg Hunt. I can’t wait! I want to do that stuff now!

Maybe a little selfishly, but I can’t wait to do the things I never did. As a child of immigrant parents, my sister and I missed out on typical American holiday traditions. We did celebrate Easter, but it quite simply included church in a pastel colored dress, an Easter basket and a ham lunch/dinner.

Then I realized there’s a bunch of stuff I have yet to experience and can’t wait to do with my child. Here’s my list:

  • Dye Easter Eggs
  • Do an Easter Egg Hunt
  • Go on a Hay Ride
  • Go Apple/fruit picking (probably with a hay ride)
  • Carve a pumpkin

Of course, we can’t wait to start our own family traditions as well. Not sure what they are yet, but will look forward to creating them and sharing them.
