From my Heart

Life with a baby is so unpredictable. Just when you think you know it all, and you are on the right track.. things go boom!!! There goes all your planning in the drain. As much as I love my sweet little bean, the unpredictability that comes with parenting is what I wasn’t ready or let’s say planned for! Every day is new. Every day comes with it’s own challenges. Every day she (and I) learn something new. Every day is different in our lives.
This bittersweet (but oh, so satisfying) experience, the struggles, the smiles, the tears, those cuddles, those long wakeful nights, and short playful days.. I want to absorb it all and cherish them deep in my heart forever since this time will never come back. She will never be a baby again. She keeps growing every minute, every second of the day. It feels like time is racing with me. And it’s such a delight to watch her personality unfold a little every day. I look at her and my eyes get watered so often, wondering how on earth is she mine! What did I ever do to get so lucky. I never get an answer back, so then I just thank the universe for making her mine. She is love. She is life. She is happiness. She is pure innocence.
I love her so.. my heart hurts.

5 Days in Philly

It was a fabulous vacation, a wonderful break from my (not so) monotonous life. The little Missy enjoyed it too. I must say, she was a breeze! She loves being outdoors and I loved traveling with her.
Just like I promised there would be pictures from our trip, so here we go! As I said in my previous post that we did not carry our camera. Hence, iPhone came to the rescue! I tried capturing as many memories I could (and as much my phone memory allowed).

P.S. Philadelphia, you were beautiful. Though I’m not done with you! I’ll be coming back soon. 😉

Statement Shoes

In my last post I expressed how nervous I was about traveling with our little girl. However, to my surprise, traveling with her was smooth like butter! She was a breeze to be with; a lovely companion. We visited museums, hopped on tour buses, walked miles everyday aimlessly to find quaint neighborhoods and she loved all of it. I loved all of it. What a wonderful week we had. I did not feel like coming back – AT ALL. But all good things come to an end. So here we are.. back in Orlando city!
I have a confession to make. For the very first time, in ages (or I guess.. ever!!) we traveled without our camera. This has never happened before. Never. Specially since I started blogging, we’ve always carried my camera, but this time was different with little missy accompanying us. Though that did not stop me from clicking pictures on my phone. Ha! 🙂
I’m still sorting out pictures from our trip to post here on the blog. And I promise, the next post will have tons of travel pictures but for today, you’ll have to do with these pink shoes. Ha! After pink pants, who could’ve thought I’ll jump on to pink shoes so soon! But then again.. never say never! To be frank I’ve decided that from now on, I will try something unusual every time I dress up – just to be creative. Anything which I normally wouldn’t wear, or think of. All I can tell you is that I’m going to have some fun with my wardrobe. Like I said in my last post, fashion is supposed to be enjoyed. We need to make clothes work for us, and not the other way round. I’m a mum now.. so comfort is the key!

An Unusual Pairing

We are going to do something very brave coming Sunday. I’m sure a lot of people have done it before. But for us, this is going to be the first time traveling with a baby – a four and a half months old!! You have no idea how nervous I am. I don’t know how our baby girl is going to react to her first flight experience, being away from home for 5 days and staying in a hotel. I am trying to think of every possible thing to pack which we may need (you know, just in case..?!!), but I’m still so, so anxious. All experienced moms out there – if you have any tips or suggestions for me, please let me know. I’ll be grateful!
In case you are wondering, we are going to Philadelphia. It’s a work trip for husband and a vacation for me and little Missy. We booked the tickets a month ago and back then I was actually quite excited about the whole trip. However, as the travel is coming closer, I’m getting restless by the minute! Well, we’ll see what ever happens when it happens, right?

Now that I’m a mother, all I think about it how easy and comfortable my clothes can be. I’ve given up on skin fitting dresses for now. Not because I still have 10 pounds (from my pregnancy) to lose, but rather due to the fact that I just want to move freely and be comfortable.
They say skinny jeans are very comfortable. Trust me, they stand no where when it comes to wide leg pants. The fluidity of these pants adds grace and length to our gait. It looks like I’ve really put an effort in dressing, though in reality it barely took me 5 seconds to pick these two items from my closet before heading out the door. The
I dare you to think outside the box next time when you dress up. Go for something you would not pair otherwise.. like flare and ruffles or a dress over jeans, or a basic slogan t-shirt over a sequins skirt. You see? Just go crazy! Have fun with clothes. But keep in mind to follow just one rule that ‘there are no rules in fashion.’ 😉
