Fruit on a donut πŸ“Balance, right?

Finally used my (expired πŸ˜“) @impossible_hq film πŸ˜πŸ’– Feeling more myself lately πŸŽ€πŸ‘‹

Sometimes I'm embarrassed I live like this as a 30-something woman and other times I wonder how I'd ever live without it πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸŽ€

The other day, in the throes of motherhood, I had the realization I didn't need to be sad to remember Max. What a new way to honor him. It almost feels like a new life.

I walked to grocery store, made 32 bags of purΓ©ed veggies for Miko's food, carried her while prepping, and my hair was actually washed. Yes, I'm feeling like Wonder Woman right now.

Mother's Day aftermath. I woke up to a custom framed poster of one of my favorite movies and new books. Miko is enough but thanks for making it extra sweet @thescottdouglas

I was a little ambitious and made my Goodreads goal to read 50 books this year but I've barely made it through my book from January πŸ™ƒAt least my bookshelf will get some love πŸ’–

Happy Mother's Day weekend all mom's- SAHM's, working mom's, adopting mom's, step mom's, all mom's! Motherhood is a big circle. And to the mom's who miss their babies, the struggle to have a baby, and the ones who find it too painful to log on tomorrow. I especially celebrate you πŸ’–

Thank you @torridfashion for the Mother's Day feature! I got an influx of followers the past couple days, here's a little re-intro about this feed- my name is Diana, I'm a half Mexican half Japanese born and raised in California. I married a writer, we had two babies, Max and Miko. Max passed away in 2013 and Miko was born last October. Life can be rough but it doesn't mean it has to be hopeless. I love Disneyland, the color pink, reading, and good black coffee. Nice to meet you all! #mikoandmom

I wrote about @ergobaby and wearing Miko the past 6 (!!!) months. I love my stroller but I always end up wearing her anyways πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§I also forgot to mention the white pads on the side are teething pads (made by Ergobaby but sold separately) to catch drool, every detail was thought of! #mikoandmom

Finally set up Miko's play area in an empty area we had. Thank you @joyfulhousedesigns for the pillow, it fits perfectly! #ourcitylightscasa

I've said this before but it's worth coming back to- Sometimes it feels like Imposter Syndrome in motherhood, like this is a party I should have never been invited to. Other times, I read something that catches my breath and reminds me I had VIP tickets all along, I'm just late as usual. Thanks for the sweet reminders @coffeeandcrumbs ❀️ #themagicofmotherhood
