♥ Ode to Lucho ♥


For those of you who don’t already know… I am the proud new auntie to the most amazing little man… Lucho! Today is his one month birthday so it seems like the perfect time to sing his praises! Where do I begin…?


Luis Joaquin was born May 9th, 2013 at 3:47 am and at that exact moment… the world suddenly became a more beautiful place. Lucho has already experienced more love than many will know in a lifetime. There is no better feeling than holding him in my arms and knowing that I will be a part of his beautiful journey. I love this little man more than life!

Magical Mystery Tour


I have always been into mysticism. Astrology, numerology, crystal therapy, you name it. I guess I just like to feel that life is a little bit magical. I recently came across this book which is chalk full of mystical teachings… astrology, tarot, palmistry, and my favorite of all the Enneagram. I have taken many Enneagram tests, always with the same result. I am a 4W3 [meaning I am a personality type 4 with a wing of 3notice the new Kikadoo logo? This was the inspo behind it]. I truly am a  type 4, through and through. These tests are crazy accurate, as are the personality descriptions.

“Fours are emotionally complex and highly sensitive. They long to be understood and appreciated for their authentic selves, but easily feel misunderstood and unappreciated. They have a tendency to withdraw in the face of a world that seems harsh or crude, and are often somewhat moody or temperamental. They are emotionally centered and spend much of their lives immersed in their internal mental landscapes, where they feel free to cultivate and analyse their feelings. A desire to manifest this internal world often leads Fours to an interest in the arts, and some do become actual artists. Whether artistic or not, however, most Fours are aesthetically sensitive and concerned with self-expression and self-revelation, whether it be in the clothes they wear or in the overall nature of their often idiosyncratic lifestyles.”

I highly encourage you to take an Enneagram test. You may discover something new about yourself, learn more about your strengths and weaknesses, or find that you already know exactly who you are.

In the artist of all kinds I think one can detect an inherent dilemma, which belongs to the co-existence of two trends, the urgent need to communicate and the still more urgent need not to be found….
