Daughter.

Our Gia Ysabela is six weeks old today. 
Our daughter. I kind of love saying that.



Gia is a sweet one, let me tell you. And alert! She's like a little lady, watching everything around her, taking it all in with those big eyes of hers. Just this week she's started to give us real smiles and coos which means the real fun can now begin :)

I'm finding the transition this time around to be slightly easier than the last. It could be due to Gia's calm temperament (or the fact that I'm much calmer this third time around) but nonetheless, we seem to be settling in quite nice around here. Luca is just smitten with her, giving her kisses all day long. Julian, who maybe wasn't as welcoming at first (ha!), now loves to touch her, look up at us and smile his biggest smile. Of course, there are challenging times (like when they all cry at once!), but that doesn't happen often. Not with three children under the age of four. Nope, not often at all ;)

Gia, my sweet baby girl, you've made the four of us so happy already. And this is just the beginning! I feel so lucky to call you and your brothers my own. I'm grateful to have had the chance to do this again, to bring another healthy, beautiful and loved child into this world. We love you Gia bug.

What Happened,Miss Simone?




What Happened, Miss Simone?, a documentary of the legendary artist, Nina Simone, screens June 26th on Netflix. The film is said to encapsulate Simone's incomparable, artistic talent as well as her troubled, personal life. As far as musical geniuses go, Nina Simone is top five for me. Her music, lyrics (and overall talent, in general) continue to inspire me every day. I cannot wait to see this. Will you be watching?

The Characters of Wes Anderson.



{A drawing tribute by Colombian illustrator and art director, Alejandro Giraldo.}

 I just love Wes Anderson and his work. If it were up to me, every last wall in our apartment would be adorned with artwork paying tribute to his films. Giraldo, who holds an MA in Art Direction in Elisava Barcelona, currently resides in Medellin, Colombia, where he does freelance work.

P.S. My favorite Wes Anderson-inspired purchase to date :)
