little tokyo.

This cafe in LA's Little Tokyo has the BEST curry buns and soft serve. And of course the cutest little graphics on their packaging.


bump bonuses.

Baby bump bonuses:

+stork parking 
+kind strangers giving the right away (crosswalks, checkout stand lines, seating areas)
+dressing baby bump up with stripes & polka dots
+stuffing my face, feeling full with no bloated tummy to hide
+feeling those magical kicks & tumbles
+24/7 table top holder for drinks & snacks
+nice reason to give my joints a break from running

biggest bonus of all was watching my belly grow, nourishing my healthy little baby, and enjoying that special bond the two of us had before he joined the world.



Here I am (rewind back to May) on Mother's day, beaming proudly with my rather large baby bump. I remember thinking how soon a sweet little boy will be calling me his mama. I'm a daughter, a sister, a wife, a teacher, and now...... a mama!

 I feel complete & whole.
