This is a big post for me as I have some exciting news! I am expecting a baby!! I have been wanting to share my news with the blogging community for some time, but it feels like now is the right time. I am trying to find the balance between protecting my little one by not wanting to share too much and then wanted to share my joy with the world. I am currently 24 weeks pregnant and I am so looking forward to beginning this journey of motherhood. I am hoping and praying with all my might to have a healthy little baby with me in January.
With the recent still birth of my beautiful, precious and irreplaceable nephew, which has been indescribably heart breaking, I cannot put into words, I know all too well that thing’s do not always go to plan. I am therefore of-course extremely anxious! He was and will always be so loved and wanted, it is impossible to comprehend how such a thing can happen. With this in mind, I cannot relax until my baby arrives safely in my arms, of course I am already in love.<3
You can expect to see some baby related content on my blog! Because of course when a woman becomes a mother, it is a huge part of her life, her baby is her everything!
We recently took a trip to surprise my partners family with our news and I was incredibly excited to tell them in person. I love surprising people and wrapping presents, so this was the perfect opportunity for me to get creative! I found an online store called Zazzle. The great thing about this site is that you can personalise a lot of items, including baby grows!
I decided to personalise three baby grows with a message and a little heart. My baby will be half Filipino, and will therefore use the word ‘Lola’ instead of Granny, ‘Lolo’ instead of Granddad and ‘Tita’ instead of Auntie, I decided to use these names in the messages.
I had a vision in my head of how I wanted to wrap the baby grows, so I started looking everywhere for some small white gift boxes! Sostrene Green had a great selection of small boxes, absolutely perfect for what I wanted, and really reasonably priced! I also found the red ribbon from there, which goes perfectly with the red heart on the baby grows!

I’d love to hear some of your stories!
