“Guess How Much I Love You”

“I love you to the moon and back.” -Sam McBratney

I had the pleasure of planning my cousin’s baby shower this past Saturday. It was so much fun crafting for this special event. We’ve been by each other’s side since I was three months old. Thanks to all her guests for being amazing and taking the time to create personalized nursery books for Baby Kania. Ah! Time is flying. Enjoy photos from this memorable weekend, as I already begin planning for baby’s first shoot!  = )

Baby & Boy!

It’s official, we’re having a  baby boy in February. We can’t wait to meet him and I can’t wait to dress him! He’s such a lucky little guy, he’s already being showered with gifts from loved ones and he hasn’t even made his appearance yet. We continue to pray for him as he continues forming in my womb. His name will be Jude “Alexander” Yu. Praised. Defender. We pray that he’ll carry my father’s name and be a blessing to those around him.


We’re halfway there, stay strong little guy!

Secret Garden Project Week 2

“One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts– just mere thoughts– are as powerful as electric batteries– as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison is. To let a sad thought or a bad thought get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body. If you let it stay there after it has got in, you may never get over it for as long as you live.”     -Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

I was wrong, the mural will not be done for another few weeks and now I understand why. After the first week, each artist is bringing to life the plants and animals through life like inspirations they’ve taken from our local farm. It’s amazing to stare up close and personal at the head of a chicken and feel it’s beady eyes stare right back at you.

I find myself slowing down each time I make my way to the cafeteria, something that’s not easy to do when the hustle and bustle of a school day runs through my veins. I find that I simply can’t help it, but take in the goodness and to notice the little buzzings of life happening beside me.
