I'm Steffy, and I live in my favorite place on earth, Long Beach NY with my two loves & our dachshund. In this space we share our adventures around NY, cozy days at home and tons of outfits! Grab a cup of coffee and lets get to know each other!

NEVER MISS A POST

On Happiness


There's two things that never fail to make me smile - going on a bike ride, and eating things with a spoon (like cereal, and yogurt.. and ice cream, of course!) I've been thinking a lot about how to try to translate that calm feeling of biking, wind in my hair and grin on my face, into the rest of my existence. I know that this person living inside of me is soaking in my vibes, and will inherit pieces of my demeanor that he will carry with him for the rest of his life.

So, I've been trying now, before he arrives, to find peace. Even if it just means lighting a candle for a few hours and actually taking the time to smell it. Even if it's just an extra throw blanket at the end of the bed, for that extra wow. Or.. just putting on my favorite record, over and over again. I want to find these beautiful, simple pieces of happiness now, and hold onto them/ revisit them. I want them to fill mine & his world, so he senses peace and serenity, not stress and worry.

Until he can ride a bike, I want him to still know the feeling of bike ride bliss. :)

  3. I love this. I don't have kids yet but I so very much hope we do some day! I can only imagine how they feed off of your emotions and energy while in the womb. Being a girl is rough sometimes. The guys don't really have to do much of anything and there is so much pressure on us to give the baby a warm and welcoming space to live in until they're born. I'm sure you're doing just great and I wish you the best of luck. We've been trying for two years with unexplained infertility and it's so hard wanting something so badly and not being able to make it come into existence. So for now I am living vicariously through you and other pregnancy blogs until our time comes. It keeps me excited and inspired to not give up!:)
