Meet the Crew…


gabe and plants


Gabe – My husband of almost five years, and the man behind the camera. The kids and I are his biggest fans. His constant love and support are the wheels on this adventure. Rugby, the outdoors, and teaching history are his languages of expertise. I learn something new from him every day. Get to know more about this guy here.


Gabriel Joseph – 4 years old, with a long standing love for train engines and tracks. A big sensitive heart that always wants to make sure everyone is happy. He takes his role as a big brother very seriously, always making sure Veronica has everything she needs, and if she is near danger he sounds the alarm. He keeps the dinner conversation at a rolling laughter with his tall tales and expressive hand motions. I tribute my eye crinkles to him. A recent favorite post about Gabriel here.


Veronica Rose – 2 years old, and the will power of a lion. She loves to dance, sing, and get into anything she is not supposed to. She follows her brother around all day long and tries her best to keep up with him. She prefers baseball caps to bows, and we have a hard time keeping her in a dress. She is in charge of making sure mama grows in the virtue of patience, and knows how to perfectly remedy a bad situation by a certain tilt of the head and peace offering. A little more about Veronica here.

Bambino on the way  – Gabe and I are anxiously awaiting our 5th anniversary on June 28th – the due date of our third little love. We do not know the gender of the baby so it will be the surprise of the year. You can view the birth announcement here.

Thank you for being a part of our family with your love and support over the past few years. Wish I could meet more of you in person, but until then, I hope you can continue to find inspiration and encouragement among the pages of IHOD!

  7. Hi! Could you please post something about your hair? I have searched your blog for posts on how you keep your hair so naturally beach hair looking and moisturized but I haven’t found anything. If you get a chance, that would be of interest to me and I’m sure other folks with similar hair. Thanks!

    Also your outfits are always so modestly fashionable and very inspiring — thanks for that as well!

  8. Love your website and blog! Thanks for sharing your life with us.
