We just came back in Sayulita from a 10 days vacation trip in Yucatan and Cuba. Here are some photos of the first part of our trip: the amazing pink lagoon at Las Coloradas that has been for a long time on my to-see list! A 4 hours drive from Tulum so worth it. As soon as Lula saw it she said “Yay, pink my favorite color!”
Frida Khalo’s gorgeous altar.
Had to take a quick selfie with my girl in front the this beautiful blue wall from Frida Khalo’s house.
Flower crowns on a colorful boat tour at Xochimilco.
Beautiful altar for El Dia de los Muertos in Sayulita.
A little spot on the beach called Junto al Rio and it has the best hammocks!
Beach naps are the best, weekends routine…
One of my little paper flamingo in the girls room to make it feel like home.
New custom bench approved!
Here is our new paper portrait! (more portraits here) Playa pretty much everyday in Sayulita and yes we brought Anouk’s flamingo with us!
My little family and I are super honored to be in the last issue of Little magazine “Happy!” that celebrate their 3 years anniversary! An issue filled with colors, balloons and confettis! You know how much colors make me happy.
Here are a few more photos from the shoot, close-up details of the girls bedroom and us!
Love her sweet funny little face!
Oh I love my family!
Most precious image of Anouk yawning. She was just 2 months old.
Thank you Sabrina Bot for capturing us in the girls room, we love the photos as always!
Completely in love.

We couldn’t have hoped for a better big sister. Lula has been the sweetest since we welcomed Anouk. She asks for her sister all the time, the first thing she does when she comes home from preschool is to look for her and she has a big smile on her face when she sees her. She gives her kisses, hold her tiny hands, rock her if she cries, sing to her… and watching them interact is simply the best. I can’t believe how grown up she looks all of a sudden!
I hope you had a great Halloween weekend! Here are a few photos of Lula in her handmade costume (I took the morning after). She is obsessed with planes lately, I think “avion” is the word she says the most during the day, (well after “I want…” ) so I thought it would be fun if she was a little aviator for Halloween! I made the airplane with cardboard and paint. It was fun to make and she loved it! She kept playing with it during the week, jumping in, pretend she was flying. Then came Halloween day and she refused to put it on for trick or treating… she’s been a little grumpy after her naps lately so it was impossible to get her to wear it. But hey, that’s life with a toddler right?! So we got together with a few friends families and went trick or treating anyway, we still got her to wear the helmet and goggles and me and my big belly pretended to be a cloud with a rainbow (imagine me on the way to my friend’s house in the car…haha). Lula had so much fun picking out candies and chocolates at the houses and we stopped for a good hour in front of a house with a dj for a dance party with a bunch of people, that was the best! Watching toddlers dancing is seriously the funniest thing ever.
Now I can rest! Baby girl is coming in 3 weeks! I am 37 weeks pregnant today, time flies but really this month feels the longest!!!
Adventures in the woods for us, halloween costume making and pumpkin carving for us + 2 birthday parties to attend. Busy busy!
How did that happen? How can she be 2 already?! I feel like we celebrated her first birthday yesterday…
We celebrated with the family in France where we spent our summer (a month ago already, she turned 2 on august 17th). My parents had bought two little strawberry plants for when we arrived to surprise Lula, everyday she went to pick the red ones, tried to eat the green ones too, she would eat them all if we didn’t stop her, she loves strawberries so much! So I thought a strawberry theme for her birthday would be fun. I made a pinata that I filled up with all her favorite things: stickers, little dolls, jewelries, candies… and confettis!
She’s had her first candies when we were in France and ice-cream and chocolate almost everyday thanks to her grand-parents! She knows the words for these really well now and keep asking for some since we got back! But the vacations are over…
We had a beautiful strawberry cake too that I didn’t get a chance to photograph before it started melting, it was so warm that day!
