So I know I haven’t posted lately. My wonderful husband and I are working on a few things in our house. We’re trying to get it done by Summer for our family gatherings we’re planning to have, as well as our parents & kiddos dates. Be back soon!!
No joke I started this love letter to my daughter after I did the love letter to my parents which was my first blog I wrote. Hehe..
This had absolutely nothing to do with procrastination, but everything to do with finding the right words through my actions. I didn’t want to write a quick “I love you” and throw in some memories and be done with it type of blog. If I didn’t do that with my parents love letter why would I do it to my daughters!
I want this letter to be felt by my daughter when she grows up and reads it. I want her to know how much she means to me and not by words I can jot down on a blog. So here you go my Princess this love letter is for you!
My beautiful little girl,
Your Daddy and I love you so much! When we first found out we were pregnant with you it was hard for us to be excited. You see my baby girl we had pregnancies before you and unfortunately they were miscarried. Yet, for some reason we sorta felt and believed God told us this was it, you were going to be our greatest gift.
Your Daddy was so sweet he wouldn’t let me do a thing. He cooked, cleaned, washed the clothes, yard work, and everything else you can think of. I remember he would even brush my hair because of how long it was; he thought me brushing to long would put stress on you. He is such a gentleman. Your very blessed to have him as your Daddy. Just so you know he still does all those things for Mommy and carries you along with him! He loves you so very much!
Time kept going on and you kept growing. I would hear your heartbeat and it was the most wonderful sound I’d ever heard. Then it came time to find out your gender and the doctor told us you were our Princess.
I can’t lie I cried! Not because I wasn’t happy; but because I was afraid of what you would go through. As a woman I had been through a lot; and for many years it changed me and took me away from the woman I should have been. I struggled to trust men, and people in general because of all the heartbreaks I’d gone through. I know it’s the reason why God didn’t put you in my life till the timing was right.
I can’t believe that now your about to be one year old! I’m already planning your pastel rainbow & hot air balloon tea party. I want you to know that no matter what happens in life always be strong, be loving, show forgiveness, and always know who God is in your life. Have patience and wait for the things you want most. Don’t chase it! Don’t run after it! If God wants you to have it, He will give it to you!
I am doing the best I can to make sure you grow to be all that God has created you to be. His plans are already set for you, and even if you hit bumps along the way just know the outcome is already written! Trust God, Love God, and Know God! Never ever let anyone steer you away from Him. Without God we are nothing but a grain of sand.
Your Daddy and I will always do everything we can to make you succeed in life. I know that in the future we may have disagreements or disappointments; but I hope that you will always know that as your Parents we’ll forever have your best interest at heart. You mean the world to us Princess. Your an answered prayer that took years for us to be prepared for, but God is never late and always knows exactly what he’s doing.
Right now at this moment I’m sitting on the couch with you; and watching you play with your tea pot set. I’m still in awe that your here with me. I love being your Mommy and watching you grow. These moments I’ll forever cherish and remember this is the time my rainbow was shown!
My precious little one you’ve made my life filled with so much happiness! You hold my heart in your hands. In just a few moments you went from sitting with me and playing on the couch to rubbing your tired little eyes and ready for a nap. Soon you’ll go from my arms to walking around the house. I look forward to seeing you grow into a woman. I don’t know what God has planned for you, but I do know it’s going to be something wonderfully beautiful!
Mommy Loves You!! There is nothing in the world that could measure my love for you!
I hope y’all have enjoyed my Love Letter to my Princess, and hope this day finds you Happy, healthy, creative, and full of life! Whatever you do never aim to be a replica of another, because you’re too beautiful to be replaced! My daughter and I just now were given a flower from my husband for National Women’s Day and what a perfect time for this blog to be finished!
Here’s to all the women in this world past, present, and future; You’re loved & appreciated. Keep on striving to be all you’re meant to be and more. There should be no competition with each other. We all should do our best to uplift and encourage one another. If other women tell you that there are “teams, or groups”, don’t listen to them because those people will be the first ones to bring you down. There should never be a reason that we shouldn’t be there for one another. If one bad apple ruined a bunch, it must have been because the leader of that pack rot from the inside out! We’re all in this together and building friendships is way better than burning bridges. If we never learn how to truly love, we’ll never be able to teach true love to our children.
Have a blessed International Woman’s Day, and don’t forget to be a blessing to every woman you see today! I challenge you ladies to meet a new friend and sow love into all your friendships!
With Love & Encouragement Always,
Though spills can happen, and the house can get messy; don’t let it leave you stressing.
Be happy and blessed for the house that can hold a mess, the baby who will spill, and the love that you’ll feel.
Never let another make you feel less than your worth, because they’re fighting a battle that is way worse!
Trials reveal your true friends, and family fueds can always be mended.
Take a seat, and a moment to breathe.. The days are just starting for everything to come together like the Lord intended.
Everyone’s paths are different, so don’t get lost in other people’s missions..
Sometimes in life we hear negative thoughts from people who think their teaching you something good. Don’t let their negativity rub off on you. Be positive, be a blessing, and always; always “Do Good!”
You’re a good person so don’t change who you are, for what people think you should be. If anything pray for them to find their true path that is intended for them. God doesn’t put people in your path that only want to criticize you or “teach” you. Especially if they themselves cannot be taught.
God’s greatest teaching is Love! So if you can show and sow Love you’re already on the right path! So keep on keeping on! You’re children, friends, spouse, family, and even your enemies need to see and learn that Love from you.
Hope this night finds you in good health and full of Love to give!! Life is too short to live unhappy and always pointing the finger at everyone else’s mistakes. If that is all we continue to do we’ll never have time to make our own world beautiful!! No matter how much we pretend!!!
With Love & Encouragement Always,
So this Monday a few of us Mommies had a get together at a really neat restaurant in Melrose; West Hollywood, California area called “Au Fudge“. We wanted a kid friendly place that we can all catch up as well as our kids be able to play together and have a great time. Let me tell you that’s exactly what we did! We all caught up and had a blast!
With kids it’s always challenging to find a place that’s kid friendly, and this is an amazing kid friendly place. They have a kids play spot; where they also host classes and adorable events for the kids while the parents chill and have some adult time.
As parents we are always so busy with our kids and sometimes adult time is needed. Planning Mommy & Baby play dates are a great way to enjoy time for ourselves; and great for our kids to enjoy play time with cousins or friends.
This place brought so much joy to the kids hearts as well as ours. We hadn’t seen our cousins in a while too. So the catching up part was super fun! We didn’t get very many pics except the few I’m posting here. I guess when you’re having a good time you forget about taking pics.
The food was so good! I had the grass fed black angus beef burger and I loved it! It was so tasty and huge! The fries were pretty darn tasty too!! It was not expensive either. Their prices are very reasonable.
I try my best to feed my LO healthy food so I went with the kids Veggie Bowl with cous cous. Boy, oh boy did she enjoy it. It was the cutest thing watching her eat it too. She was so adorable, especially with the little balls of cous cous falling out of her mouth once in a while lol.
And don’t get me started on the yummy desserts!! My favorite was the mixed berry cobbler!! Oh My Gosh was it a delicious dessert! I just had to order two of them. It was the cutest little set up too! The cobbler was served in a tiny little bath tub filled with yummy goodness!! It also had a scoop of vanilla ice cream that made it that much more better.
They also serve what’s called a plate of cookies. I ordered that as well for the kiddos. I love me some fresh baked cookies so I had to try them too. You know I got a bite of each cookies. I was definitely satisfied with all of them!
I really can’t forget to mention how awesome the service was. We had two male Servers and they were super sweet. They were good to our kids and made sure our visit was a good one. We even arrived late to our reservation and they still made sure our visit was enjoyable. I absolutely love places that have great servers/service.
I recommend this place if you’re ever in the Melrose area with your kids, or if you’re planning a Mommy & baby play date. We’re definitely going back again.
Mommy’s and Daddy’s parenting can be very hectic at times; I’m sure we’ve all learned this. I truly suggest setting up Mommy/Daddy & Baby play dates; or even just family play dates. Being around other parents can be such a wonderful blessing. Not just for the fun, but it gives us a chance to listen and learn how different; yet the same it is for us parents.
In my 20’s I loved to travel and moved around from state to state and not having kids was sometimes lonely, but I also knew people who did have kids but lived far away from family. So if that’s the case for you weather you’re away from family, a single parent, or even a stay at home parent and in need of adult time; there are plenty of wonderful family Facebook pages and or groups that you can join and get to know other parents in your area. Perhaps even meet up for coffee breaks as well.
If you need help finding groups or pages feel free to follow mine “This Is Mommy Life FB Page“; or if your more of a life through your lens person follow my Instagram “Mrs.Mommy.Loza IG” and we can help you find groups in your area.
Sometimes all we need is a ear to hear, give/get advice to a parent that can use it, or share what we’re going through to lighten the load. After all we’re all in this together!
I truly hope you enjoyed reading my blog, and I hope this day finds you in good health and full of happiness. Always wishing the best to my readers and their little ones.
Stay blessed, have fun, and be creative.
With Love &a Encouragement
