Motherhood and my children have been the most inspiring thing that has happened to me, and it motivated me to write; about them, about us, about our days together – Our Everydays. I cannot believe it has been a year since I posted my first words on this blog. And what a wonderful journey of…

Perhaps it’s the longer and sunnier days that have made being a stay-at-home mom, a little bit more enjoyable lately. Sun makes me happy. Being a wife and mother makes me happy. Being a stay-at-home mom makes me happy too. I have been a stay-at-home mom for 21 months, and I love it. Yes, it’s…
