Hello and welcome to my blog!
My name is Nicole Banuelos. I am a wife to the BEST husband and mother to the most handsome son and beautiful daughter in the world. I have a passion for all things crafty, photography and baking. I LOVE Pinterest. Seriously… why was that not MY idea??
My husband (Oscar) and I have been married for a little over a year and have been together for about 8 years now. Oscar is truly the best husband, ever. And not just because he drives to Starbucks every weekend morning (and some weekday mornings too) for my skinny vanilla latte… (though that definitely helps!!). He also happens to be the best Dad, ever. Oscar took on the roll of Dad to my son with no hesitation at all and he adjusted to life with a newborn baby girl flawlessly. He is so great with kids.
As I mentioned earlier – we have two kids. Anthony is 13 and in 8th grade. Our daughter, Isabella, is five months old. (I know, HUGE age difference!!) Anthony is the best big brother to his sister. As soon as he comes home from school Isabella gets a huge smile on her face. She just adores her big bro!
I am lucky enough to be a “stay-at-home” mom for my kids. Its truly the most rewarding experience to be able to stay home. Being able to watch Isabella grow each day and learn new skills has been so much fun and its nice to be home for Anthony when he comes home from school. I know that he enjoys having me home as well… even if he won’t admit it!
So, what is the purpose of my blog?? I decided to create this blog for two reasons:
1) So I can share pictures of my kids with my family and friends who enjoy seeing the daily/weekly updates (because we all know that not everyone on social media sites enjoy seeing those daily posts); and
2) So I can watch myself grow as an amateur photographer. My goal (fingers crossed!!) is to be able to eventually grow into an established photographer. There is so much to learn and while I do occasionally get a few “lucky” shots I know I still have a lot of hard work ahead of me.
So lets do this!
