U Family Update

Hi All!!! So, as I mentioned last week, things have been a little crazy and hectic in the U family house. You have probably noticed the blog posts have been a little slow, and even social media has been more 'quiet' than usual. Busy is an understatement, to say the least! Family, a constantly evolving business, and life with a 1 year old has been fun, exciting, and exhausting. No complaints whatsoever, as I feel so blessed to live the life I live, and I am blessed to have so much family and friends around me that keep us busy, and also surrounded by love, but I will admit that amidst all of the life commitments we have as well as running our busy household, the blog has suffered... 
I apologize for that, as I enjoy writing as much as I hope others enjoy reading my content! 

I have so so may fun and exciting things to share with you - Raj's 1st Birthday, personal business with the blog growth along with exciting collaborations, and so many other family events and occasions, as well as so many things to get ready for the holidays coming up! Speaking of, can you believe next week is Thanksgiving?! I can't, but I am excited nonetheless, as I have so much to be thankful for this year. 

The week of Raj's Birthday, I started to get that overwhelming, busy feeling. What then seemed like would be only a week of chaos, then turned into two, then three weeks of madness, and I feel like I am just now getting caught up on life. We have been having fun, fighting colds and flus, and been battling a very difficult round of teething with the little guy... but how about instead of the rambling, I give you a little photo update on what our house has been up to these last few weeks!

 One of the most exciting opportunities to date: hosting an amazing fashion event at Coach at South Coast Plaza, what an honor that was! (blog post coming soon)

Celebrating our 4 Year (Indian) Wedding Anniversary 

Blogger night at Diptyque, South Coast Plaza

Breast Cancer event and celebration of life with Mom U. at her hospital

Raj's 1st Birthday Party!!! (blog post coming soon)

1 year since the day we brought Raj home from the hospital...where has the time gone?!


I was so honored to be asked to style a photo shoot with the stunning ladies of Golden Dot Events, and I feel honored to be part of such an insanely talented team!! Be on the lookout for their site featuring the photos to launch in the next few weeks, eeeek! (blog post coming soon)

I was recently asked to be a guest speaker at StyleCon OC as a local influencer. I had such a blast and was in such amazing company... I can not wait to see this event grow and grow bigger every year! (blog post coming soon)

Raj's 1st Birthday photo shoot!!!!! Oh my gosh was that fun!! We got to work with the insanely talented Gina Lee. I feel honored to not only to have had her photograph such an important milestone, but to be able to call her my cousin. Can not wait to share more!! (blog post coming soon)

Me and my date at a blogger event at Kendra Scott, I love bringing the little man along with me when I can... and he loves getting all of the attention from the beautiful ladies! 


We took Rajan to Disneyland for the first time as one of his Birthday gifts, and we truly had a great time spending the day together, just the three of us. We always look forward to really spending quality time alone because of our busy schedule, so when we get the opportunity we really enjoy every minute! (blog post coming soon)


And most recently, D and I spent the weekend away from Rajan for the first time and went to Palm Dessert to celebrate two of our closest friends, Lindsey (Stay Styled Blog) and Brett, getting married!!! The wedding was unbelievably beautiful, heartwarming, and so much fun! I always feel like you really connect with a couple based on their vows, and after the bucket of tears I shed during theirs, I can say that I fell even more in love with them as a couple than I thought I could; I am so honored to call them my friends!

So as you can see, life has been fun, crazy, and everything in between. This is just a small glimpse at what has been going on...

I have some fun and exciting projects and events I will be sharing with everyone this week, and I can't wait to share all of the blog posts I have been holding on to!

Hope everyone has an amazing week, the countdown to Turkey Day is on!!



With love,
Amanda
