My Nieces


My Nieces – December 5, 2018

Time keeps moving. Throughout this month of December 2018, I’m going to add updated pictures of my nieces. I didn’t even add the third and youngest one here. Okay, it’s a project I will work on.

A Song For My Nieces
July 11, 2015

I dedicate this song to my two wonderful nieces: 2 year-old and 3 month-old.  They inspire me so much.  I want to make this world more peaceful for them.  In March 2015, my mom, dad, younger sister Lara, and I visited the Bay Area, California to be with my younger sister Mia, brother-in-law Mike, and niece E to await the arrival of S.  Several times I played with Elyse as she pushed her wooden animals in a wooden truck on the floor of the living room.  She called the animals “aminals” just like the title of this song “Aminals” by Baths.  I just happened to listen to this song this afternoon as I worked on the edits of my first novel, a paranormal romance that takes place in Hawaii and a spiritual realm where spirits are trapped.  The song made me think of my two nieces who I wish I could see more often even though I Skype with them almost weekly with my mom, dad, and baby sister Lara. It’s just not the same as seeing them in person.

Thinking of my nieces
July 11, 2015

I cherish every moment I have with my nieces, daughters of my younger sister Mia and brother-in-law Mike. I try to spend a month or two with them every year either in Hawaii, the Bay Area, California, or on a trip somewhere. I also try to Skype with them every week with my parents and my younger sister Lara. As they grow older, they remind me of how valuable time is. I want them to have happiness throughout their lives. I love them so much. I dedicate the song above to my nieces, which has some cute kids singing about making up for lost time.
