Meditation and Chocolate



My brushes were resting for a while but they are awake now, eager to paint. I had an epiphany the other day. A vision always comes at the most random moment and I end up scrambling to find a pencil and paper to get the idea down. I try to bring my moleskine sketchbook everywhere.

Being a mom is the most rewarding job (I love it) but it can also be difficult to make time for the meditation necessary to clear my mind and let those ideas flow. Im lucky to have a supportive husband who believes in me. In my day job I do get breathing time in between calls and use these minutes to write down words to brainstorm before I sketch.

I'm working hard to surround myself with inspiration, little things that make me happy. Don't forget that you are important too and should treat yourself with kindness. And chocolate :)

With Love,
Karina

Surprise Eggs


One of Milo's favorite things EVER are eggs. The kind with toys and candy inside. He is obsessed. He watches youtube videos about "surprise eggs" and it's literally just some guy opening these Kinder eggs and play-doh eggs (seriously, look it up). We hid some small Batman action figures (his other obsession) in the eggs for his basket. I think we over did it just a bit but it was so much fun! Growing up, our family didn't do the whole basket thing and this was my first time shopping for it. I wanted to make this Easter really special for him and Bella.
I hope you had a great Easter and enjoyed some chocolate too!
With Love,
Karina



Pouring both baskets on the grass, oh dear.

My silly boy




My babies and their grandparents. Very thankful for these two ♥  

They had baskets from their Lolas and Auntie too! (yay for diaper baskets!)
