Naomi of Therapy Threads Boutique was with us again!
"We are a mother and daughter team who are obsessed with fashion, style, home decor and design. We love living in Florida and enjoying being in the sun and spending time together as a family. We want to share our passion for clothing and accessories with all of you so you can look and feel great too. Because lets be honest, sometimes we all need a little retail therapy. Our Motto is “For the addicted and obsessed, who just need a little retail therapy. Shopping is always cheaper than therapy”"

Anna Marie was with us with goodies from Sheago Cosmetics!
"PREMIUM PLANT BASED PRODUCTS
Sheago Cosmetics is unique in that we do not use alcohol, mineral oil, petroleum, parabens or artificial colors in our skin care, even though it is the base of most lotions sold today. Our vision was and is to create nutritious, food based products for the skin and hair so that your body eats a healthy meal every day.
We are proud to say that our products don't contain genetically modified oils (GMO)s. Nor do they contain conventional soybean or corn oil. At Sheago, we meticulously select only the highest grade of plant oils and butters as the base of all of our products. This base of plant purity is what makes our products unique."

My little, big guy started VPK last Monday. He loves it and loves his two teachers. From Monday-Thursday he walked right in with no problems. Thursday evening I explained that he had one more day of school then he would be with us for two days before going back. His response was, "I don't like that. I want to be at school." However, Friday came around and the reality of having to go 5 days of the week started sinking in. He didn't want me to leave, asked if I would stay. His teacher had to take him. Today, well, today he was ready to go.... until we got to his room. I had to peel him off of me. I tried talking, tried getting away really fast, but he was right behind me! Needless to say the teacher had to get him, again. I'm hoping this stops soon! I look in the little window after leaving to check on him and he's absolutely fine once I'm gone, but it just breaks my heart!
I just got back home today from a whole two weeks away. It was partly vacation and partly work. I left Florida and went to Alabama for half a week where I did an awesome shoot with my brother and his girlfriend. We hiked down to a waterfall, we didn't go all the way down to the bottom - I wouldn't have made the hike back up!
Chris came up the following week and he, GG and I went to visit my great friend and soul sister, Krissy, and her children. It was GG's first flight and he did SO well!! Not a single problem! He loved it! Check out my instagram or facebook to see pictures! There's way too many to add here!!! We had an amazing time and didn't want to leave. After returning Chris came back to Florida for work while GG and I went to Georgia for more photo shoots!

Hello! I'm Diona. I am a wife and mother. You may notice I post a lot about motherhood, it's a huge part of who I am!
I love essential oils, Starbucks, hot tea, going to the zoo, being at the beach, traveling (any and everywhere), and having lengthy discussions - I'm a big time talker once you get me going.
I can see the beauty in a mud puddle. I love anything creative and artsy - crocheting, sewing, painting, drawing, graphic design and web design, you name it, I probably do it!
Aside from Housewives In The City I am also a full time photographer with a few other small jobs on the side.
