    Sisters {march}

    There are truly no words to describe my love for my two girls. They are my world and the reason why I go on. Like any person suffering of depression my days are sometimes harder to get through but because of my two girls I continue to fight surviving it and go on.   I am considering myself very lucky that I can work from home and be here for my girls 24/7 – it’s what the joy of blogging brings to me. My girls are now 7 and 3 and the bond between them grows more and more. Although their characters are so different – my eldest is rather…

    Sisters {Jan/Feb}

    Over the last year my blog was not updated as it used to be but I want to start doing again and what better way to do it  than by telling you all about my two beautiful daughters. I stopped writing my monthly “Siblings” post around the end of last year I think…And because I stopped doing it and because I was so busy with my now work from home job I even stopped taking so many pictures with my girls. So I really need to get back to my passion – photography. This month pictures were mostly took with my phone so please do forgive me for it. My eldest is…

    Life challenges

    We are back in England after a bit over two years now. Not to stay. Just to visit. Unfortunately our money situation still doesn’t allow us to live here as a family. Plus the fact that we have no family support is another thing that keeps our family apart. I guess is one of those things that we have to go through. Other families have their own challenges so really…I should not complain. I know that s very important for the family to be together but sometimes the things are not as easy as that. We’ve been here three days already and my girls already suffer in a way. I…

    Enjoying Outdoors

    I am so happy that my daughters get to spend so much time outside and so close to their grandparents. A couple of days ago my mother was cutting the grass in the garden and my two were all over her! They loved to help their grandmother, touch the grass and smell its freshness of course. There is not a lot to say just watch them! Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. -Albert Einstein I Love Kara’s face in the picture below she has the same cute face she had when she was just a baby. These days she acts more like a little lady.…

    Teach them

    Cherish them. Cherish every single minute…and make sure you let them know you cherish the time you spend with them and their person. Respect them. And let them know that you respect them. Show them what love is and make sure that they know how much you LOVE them.   And don’t forget HUG them all the time! Everything you show them how to do they will learn and replicate A LOT!

    Ways to Celebrate the Woman in Your Life

    Spring is getting closer and closer, which means that the time to celebrate women across the world is near. In Romania, we celebrate the arrival of spring on 1st of March by giving small presents to the women in our life. These presents could be something small called “martisor” or simply a bouquet of flowers. Everybody is to receive a gift – from the youngest to the eldest. I remember that when I was a child, my dad use to buy my sister and I snowdrops, and freesias for my mum.   It was a nice way to start spring, and as freesias are my mum’s favourite flowers she was always really…

    Children should never be sad

    Every now and then you get that feeling in your heart…not even sure how to explain it. A feeling that a lot more could’ve been said…a lot more could’ve been done but it just didn’t happen! I am talking about those moments when the emotions are so high you just don’t know how to explain them. I am talking about that look in your children eyes, the sadness that you wish they didn’t have…The sadness you wish you could do something about. The moment when you wish you were smart enough to just stop it all! To stop the sadness, to stop these negative emotions, to stop their nightmares and…
