🌊🌴 beach chic 🇲🇽🇮🇳 👪 multi-culture fam of 3 📝i write to feed my soul 📍south orange county [email protected]
Not every day is easy and not all families are conventional and it used to bother me that our family didn’t have the standard Mon-Fri 8am-5pm routine like everyone else I saw around me. For a long time I felt like we were robbing our son of having the traditional nuclear family dynamic and it made me so bitter that it was the card we dealt him as a self-employed household... that was until I WOKE UP and realized all of the good he sees and the life we DO offer him. He sees two parents who work their tails off to provide safety, comfort, and support for him. He sees first hand what it means to follow your heart and passions, and while the dream doesn’t come easy, it can be done. And most of all he sees unconditional love, support, and will understand to not take any moments together for granted. There are days we don’t see daddy from sunrise to sunset and days Raj is hangin at the family business office with our Laguna Motors crew... but then there are the days like this, where we remember what it is we are working so hard for, we take a look around and are thankful for this time in our lives, the life we have created, and we’re fulfilled in the simple fact that it doesn’t matter where we are or what we are doing, we’re a team. We love hard, we sacrifice, and we remember that we are teaching our son to always do the same. What I’ve learned is to take the good moments, big or small, and bottle them up for the hard moments. I look at the basket of joy and thankfulness as little tickets to cash in on the tough days and it makes the hard times not feel as bad as they once felt 💛 we slow down more, we don’t take the minutes and moments for granted, and above all else - we always remember to be humble and thankful for the good times and the positives no matter how bad the storm can be on some days

Got some amazing #nordstromanniversarysale items today (including this great @madewell top) and I’m sharing it all with you on the blog... to be honest I know everyone is talking about it right now but this is easily one of the best selections I’ve seen in years, and I’ve been shopping this sale for a longgggg time (it’s where all my hard earned college job money went). Over the next week I plan to style the pieces I got and will be sharing them with you, I know it can seem overwhelmed seeing it everywhere so I’m trying my best to make it as simple and easy to shop for you. For now check my blog to see everything I have personally purchased and over the next week I’ll space out more styled posts for you all 😘 Also, as promised, as you can see here EVERYTHING I purchased from the sale can be worn and styled now, no waiting 2-3 months for your purchases to start working for you 👌 (📸:my mama 🙌)

The only place I care to be all weekend 🌊🌴 #heatwaveready || side note, any other moms out there find yourselves suddenly deeply invested in everything your kiddo is obsessed with? I probably know more about Humpback whales than anything else in the world & to be honest, I don’t mind one bit... if there’s one thing I have learned it’s that as a parent you just want to do and take interest in anything your child loves, it’s fun to help them explore their passions and interests and even more cool when those passions and interest become something you can bond over! I’ll take all day whale hunting at the beach any day 🐋
Did you check out the new weekly feature I launched on South Coast Style last week? It’s quickly become my new fav weekly post. And also there’s an incredible giveaway live on the blog today for all of my readers 🙌🙌 let’s just say if you’re a Nordstrom fan you’ll wanna go enter!
These people are good for the soul & we thank God for them... celebrating two of our besties for their birthday the best way we know how 🌴🍹☀️
