Hi! I’m Daphne!

But on the ‘gram, you know me as MommyILoveYouSoBig.

Let me start out by telling you how that name came to be.

When my son first started talking in full sentences, it was a joy to behold. He got a solid grasp of language early on, and we love chatting about anything and everything. One night, I was putting him to sleep when he exclaimed, “Mommy, I love you SO big.” Even now two years later, we say it to each other every night. It has become our “thing.” 

Loving my family so deeply and completely is one big reason why I am here. As a working, married mother of two, there are only so many hours in a day. I want to maximize the time I have with my husband, my son and my daughter here in our beautiful town in the South Bay of San Diego.


I started my Instagram account to stay accountable – to hold onto our favorite memories, to document our favorite recipes, to challenge and inspire myself with the other beautiful people I found on social media.

So far, it has been a journey of pure joy. Now, my little website has joined the party, too!

I’ll update the blog regularly so that you can see what we’re up to – whether it’s traveling, sightseeing, cooking, writing, laughing, loving… our home is an open book and memories are meant to be shared.

If you are interested in brand partnership or sponsorship, just drop me a line below. Or feel free to just say hi! I love you SO big!
