This brutally cold weekend in NYC...reminds us that it's indeed winter (despite the warm temp earlier in the week)...but we only have 9 days to go before the 1st day of spring. We have so many things to look forward to this spring, including a fun trip to the great outdoors. So, we decided to try on some short-sleeved tops (photo below, I took a couple of days ago) to decide what to pack and what we need to buy.
Now that Lina is a tween...she thinks it will be embarrassing for mommy to wear t-shirts (that she picked for me years ago!) featuring Mickey Mouse, Snoopy, Hello Kitty and Wonder Woman. But, she is allowing it for this year.
Both of us have spring birthdays, so we usually celebrate together by creating amazing memories. This year, since Lina is in the middle of her childhood (turning 9!) she chose our trip (with many activities out in nature). She is growing up so fast, I want to be very present to enjoy every moment...on trips, we unplug as much as possible (no phones, computer, TV & video games). She had a huge growth spurt, growing 3 inches in 10 months (and hit the top of her wall height chart), pretty soon she'll be taller than me!
