It has been so cold in our town that this 40 degree day felt amazing! We needed to get out of the house and since Luchi is sitting up on her own now I figured she would have a ball in the swing at the park! She loved it!! We bundled her up and brought her over the bridge to a park I went to as a kid. She watched some other kids play, which is her favorite thing to do, and had a nice first ride in the swing while Mommy and Daddy took pictures!
It has been a month since my little Luci was born. Below is her 1 month picture:
We have been healing from the birth and learning about one another; we are ready to venture out into the world again! We have made it to the supermarket, to my parent’s house, and to a few restaurants so far and she is doing great!! We decided to meet our friend on the boardwalk this morning for a walk and to run some errands today.
Deirdre met us on the boardwalk and took this pretty picture (above)!
Lucy was snug in her stroller and was wearing a pretty bow that I made for her! So cute!!
We walked and talked until we reached our first destination, Bashful Banana. I have probably blogged about the Bashful Banana before but it is a favorite of mine so I like to promote their business! Today I got the kiddie size banana whip with granola and chocolate chips. It tastes like ice cream but its 100% frozen banana. Delicious.
We then moved on to the Ocean City Coffee Company where Deirdre bought an Iced Coffee and we chatted with a friend who works there. They designed the inside of that store with bags of imported coffee on the walls. They sell loose teas there too which I like (I don’t like coffee).
We sat on a bench, enjoyed our whips and coffee and made our way back to our cars. When we split with Deirdre we moved on to our next stop, Bennie’s Bread. We got the best freshly baked rolls in town and pulled pork to make sandwiches for lunch.
I sliced up a home grown (by my Pop Pop) Jersey tomato and made pulled pork and provolone sandwiches for lunch. It was delicious alongside some local blueberries.
Good people, nature, exercise, and great food are the components of healthy and happy memories for me and my daughter!

I am thrilled to announce that I am a new Mom to a beautiful baby girl, Luciana Lynn.
She is an absolute angel.
She was born on July 2nd in the late afternoon. I was very “out of it” after she was delivered via unplanned c-section so I didn’t really get to bond with her until about 1 am on the 3rd. We stayed up through the night getting to know each other, breast feeding, watching a little TV, and cuddling. I have never experienced anything so incredible and am enjoying every moment of every day!
