Previous posts would lead you to believe that discussing my sister is easy for me to do, but in reality it’s the complete opposite. This past Friday (Dec 15) would have been my sister’s 33rd birthday. I kept coming here to share my thoughts but I just couldn’t get them out— too many and some just too personal to share. This year has been a tough one, there have been many times during it that I wished I could have turned to her. I’ve said it a thousand times and I’ll say it again, it never gets easier. Since my sister’s passing our family has had to find a way to celebrate Jossy’s (my sister) birthday without her. One of the ways we’ve done that is by releasing balloons into the sky and watching until they fade away. I haven’t been in the best of health for the last month or so and I wasn’t sure I’d feel up to picking up balloons and stuff. I felt guilty, this would have been the first year I didn’t do anything and of course I didn’t mention it to anyone, bc I hate being vulnerable and I hate putting things on anyone else’s shoulders. The night of the 15th Alan arrived home with flowers and giant balloons for my sister. Of course I broke down in tears, I didn’t expect it at all—it’s surely some type of feeling when your heart needs something so badly and life brings it to you. ❤️ #toodamnyoung #forever19 #RIP
Totally get that it’s TWO weeks passed Halloween, but I couldn’t let you guys miss out on how well Lyla played the part. Originally she was supposed to be a bat 🦇 but her Great Nonna tried convincing her of being a princess 👸🏻 which resulted her being a Zombie Princess 🧟‍♀️🧠👑 (by request) 
Also if you aren’t up to date on the blog there’s TWO new posts one revealing where we moved and the other, more pics of this beautiful zombie baby!

On another note...Oh man, am I going to be missing these ladies hard. Can’t believe I’m saying bye in just one more day😩 It’s been glorious with you all! Love you bunches❤️ P.S slide for a peep 👀 at Lyla’s costume !

“I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too! “ 👻🐶
They really are the most dynamic duo. We’re getting ready for a small town Halloween this year, something new for Lyla. This girl is going to have no problem getting all the good candy🕸🦇🍫🕷🎃 #Halloween
I love seeing these bad boys everywhere 🍂🎃🍂 Gotta find beauty in the world where you can, appreciate it and never stop searching or rather never stop being the beauty in the world. ❤️🍂🌎🎃🍂❤️ #pumpkins #thelittlethings
Hi, Happy Sunday! But MORE importantly HAPPY OCTOBER ! 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃
You guys! I am SO excited 1. Because it's OCT 1st and 2. Because the first HALLOWEEN blog post of the season (Halloween is in fact its own season --don't argue this) is now live over on the blog (link in bio) !!! 🕷Last year pretty much everyone stopped us while trick-or-treating to ask where we got Lyla's costume --she was pretty darn enchanting, as every little vampire should be and we're sharing all the details in a Halloween Mini Guide !

The most wonderful time of the year is here...Autumn 🍂 I am made for Autumn. Crisp air, oversized sweaters, hot chocolate to warm the hands, and moody hues to cure my soul.🔮 🌙
If you head to my latest post( Link in Bio) you  can check out what's to come this season on the blog! So much to look forward to and some pretty big surprises (; Hope you join us ! 🍂🕷🍁 #motherhood #lifestyle #autumn #Homedecor
My first reason for breathing, I hope you always dance in the forest with me 💕 Some days can be real shitty, but one glance at those beautiful blue eyes and everything gets put into perspective. My free spirited child, I will cherish you for all my days. 🌲👯 #Motherhood #welivetoexplore
Enjoying autumn at the sea with my loves. My heart couldn't be more full than it is right now🍁🌊 Also, I can't get over Lyla's hair, it flows perfectly, even in the crisp salty breeze--it's unreal 😍😭 #cayucos #autumn #oceanlife #mommyblogger #welivetoexplore
And all at once, summer collapsed into fall. 🍁🌊🍂 The crisp ocean air  is all I've been waiting for. It's officially fall in my books and I really couldn't care less what the calendar says; blankets at the beach and hot chocolate on the pier, what else does you need? 🍁🤷🏻‍♀️🌊🍂 #lifestyle #Lbloggers #avila
At the end of the day our hair was tangled, our faces covered in dirt, and our feet muddy ( so much so I had to rinse and throw on slides ) -- we're pretty damn adorable for playing in dirt all day🤷🏻‍♀️ Our trip into the wilderness was nothing short of W I L D, and I am so grateful I got to share this time with family and friends. Soon we head out to explore another state so stay tuned for more adventures. 🌲🐾👩‍👧 P.S new post on the blog (link in bio) in case you care to read. And as always, thanks for following along with us 💕
