Watching | Homeland
> Seriously, is there a better show on TV? Oh, how I love the plot twists in every episode! I just wish Damian Lewis was still alive. I keep hoping they will bring hime back somehow. A girl can dream, right?
Reading | Design blogs
> I am completely redesigning my office space and I am constantly looking for inspiration online via design blogs. I plan on doing a huge reveal soon, so stay tuned for that! I am getting lots of awesome help from Emma at Defined Designs Blog. In the almost decade that I have been practicing Chinese Medicine, I have never once decorated my office space the way I wanted to, because I was always sharing it with someone else or I decorated it gender neutral and very Asian looking. No more! It is time to be surrounded by an office space that I truly admire; that way my patients feel like they are getting the best of me.
Working On | Finding the perfect location
> After some “serious” debate between Lucas and I on what our son should wear for his first Halloween costume — Lucas won. Joaquín is going to be a monkey! Personally, I wanted him to be a lobster, but I know he is going to make the cutest monkey ever. We found the perfect costume, however now I am trying to find the perfect location to take pictures of him wearing it. I might have found it yesterday when I took him to our favorite park?
Feeling | Ridiculously excited
> There are SO many exciting moments that are coming up for my family. My husband is getting his US Citizenship after what has felt like an excruciating, never-ending process (5 looong years in the making) and Joaquín gets to celebrate his first Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve!
Planning | Joaquín’s first Birthday party
> Can you even believe that we are two months away from Joaquín turning one? I certainly cannot! While I wish time would slow down, I am also so proud of the amazing little boy my son is becoming. I did not think that I wanted his first Birthday party to be a big deal, but I have changed my mind. I am not ready to reveal the theme of the party, although I can say it is going to be really, really good.
Loving | Unexpected support and encouragement during a time of need
> After I admitted in this post that I am suffering from postpartum depression and anxiety, I received an unexpected outpouring of support and encouragement from my friends and people I have never met through comments on the post, emails, texts, etc. I cannot thank everyone enough for the love, as it was desperately needed! I am working on responding to every single message I received. If you have not received a response from me yet, please know that you will soon. My depth of gratitude is boundless!
My Favorite Photo | An autumn moment
> I try to take walks with Joaquín as often as I can. Our hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina is prettiest during the fall season. This photo was taken during a walk the other day and the weather could not have been nicer. My son is obsessed with leaves and if we let him play with them, he tries to eat them. On a side-note: we found one in his diaper the other day. I hope you laughed when you read that, because I am still laughing about that happening myself!
