After a rough week of being sick, busy and exhausted, we devoted our Saturday to a family Fun Day! With a 20 month old always on the move, we try to be intentional about where to take her. Eliora loves to run & play, so we knew that the Kentucky Science Center would be a great place to take her!
We have been in our new home for about two months. It is still a work in progress but I have loved every bit of making it our own. “Casita De Arnold” is going to be series of posts introducing different rooms of our home after we have finally made it our own.
Here is a glimpse into my favorite room of the house: the kitchen/dining area! It is the room that had me head over heels the moment I stepped in it. Take a look!
Having a home has always been a dream of mine. A dream that pulled on my heart strings the more I watched “Fixer Upper” and scrolled through Pinterest’s “Home Decor” tab. For a while, it didn’t seem like a tangible/possible thing.
But what do I know?
I am a brown woman, married to a peach (sometimes red) man. Raising an olive baby girl.
I am a brown woman teaching in an inner city classroom filled with 12 brown kids, 2 olive kids & 1 peach kid.
In all of my hours in the classroom, not one of those students have ever mentioned the color of skin.
Because it doesn’t matter.
After moving & experiencing a lot of change, my family and I haven’t had much down time. New state, new job, new routines & new responsibilities have allowed minimal time for anything else. But this past holiday weekend finally allowed for some long overdue family fun. Our labor day weekend was spent with family, friends, football & fairs! It was an exciting, sunny & beautiful 3 days!
This weekend we spent our first weekend away from Miami. A place we have called home for almost a year. The great city of Miami is full of such amazing experiences! We have had so many great memories including our last weekend in Miami! We got to do some more exploring!
With a mermaid themed beach BBQ, we got to share in her special day with all of our favorite people! It was a beautiful day at the beach filled with fun, food and family.
