So, I haven't blogged much about my family, trying to stick to the home decorating, but I can't help myself this time...It is a BIG weekend for my 3 girls....First off, our 2 oldest daughters will be swimming in the Junior Olympics this weekend!!...They have both swam competitively for the past 9 years.  This will be my oldest daughters last swim meet....She is heading off to college in the fall and will most likely be rowing on a crew team there...(I'll keep you posted)....It will be bittersweet for her this weekend!!....NEXT....our middle and youngest daughters share a birthday 10 years apart!...I know, can you believe it???....and yes, the youngest was a SURPRISE, but the biggest blessing we have ever known....(I could write a whole blog about having teenagers and a toddler at the same time)...never dull around here...haha...anyway, tomorrow is our middle daughters SWEET 16TH BIRTHDAY and our little ones 6TH BIRTHDAY!!!....we will be spending their birthdays watching a swim meet, but my middle one wouldn't want it any other way....she absolutely LOVES swimming!! I'll be back next week hopefully with a big milestone and a giveaway.....STAY TUNED!!!!.......and here they are, the loves of my life.....celebrating at the little ones bday party last weekend...Happy Weekend...


  1. Your girls are beautiful!! Have a great weekend! Martina

  2. Hi, I just discovered your blog thru DebbieDoos party (what a gem-of-a-person that lady is) & ended up going through your entire blog. Needless to say, I'm hooked, love your style, & I'm a new follower. I hope you might stop by for a visit to my blog & follow back. We are almost polar-opposites as far as where we live -- you in NY & me in AZ. I'm looking forward to your decorating journey of your shore home. We are also embarking on a journey--moving from this home of 16 years to a fresh new beginning in the big city & closer to our kiddoes & grands. I look forward to a new friendship with you & hope you feel the same. Blogland is such a fun place.

  3. Nothing more important than family!! Your girls are beautiful!! My son Parker just started swim lessons and he loves it.
    Gives me peace of mind to since we have 3 ponds on our property:)

  4. Good Morning Mariaelena,

    My boys were on swim teams for many years growing up in Texas...they loved it.

    Happy brithday to your daughter.

    We need to get together sometime when I am home in P-town. I would love to meet a fellow blogger.
