Life as A New Mom – 5 Month Update

Life as A New Mom – 5 Month Update
It's been three months since the last update and what a difference! She's a whole new person now. (As I am, because I'm getting plenty of sleep thank you very much.) She's absolutely charming, she's so aware, and she's so funny. I think we have reached a great stage. (more…)

The Best Posts of 2017

The Best Posts of 2017
What a year! I think that whether it was a good or bad year or a combo, it was a big one for most people. For me it was a combo. But probably the biggest event so far in my life happened in 2017, which was becoming a mom. That in itself brought highs and lows for many months, pre and post-birth. What a journey it's been. One other mom of four described motherhood in

Weekly Small Pleasures #128
My mom came to town for almost two weeks and left three days ago. It's always a busy time when she's here. In a good way. So I skipped a week again (or was it two?) and will definitely have to include small pleasures from those skipped weeks. Here we go: (more…)

Life as a New Mom – 2 Month Update

Life as a New Mom – 2 Month Update
It's been two months now since my baby girl was born (24th) and my life changed forever. Becoming a new mom actually feels more like getting a new life rather than it changing. The first month was very hard. The second has been way better. (more…)

The last time I posted a "Weekly Small Pleasures" I was about 38 weeks pregnant. Today my baby girl is 3 weeks and 2 days. It has been a rollercoaster in the last few weeks but I'm ready to include some of the small pleasures as of late. This week I finally started to get a little bit more time and a bit more rest as my baby girl is kinda starting to get into a

All The Beds I Have Slept In Around The World Since 2014

All The Beds I Have Slept In Around The World Since 2014
In the past, I blogged about all the beds I slept in around the world from 2008 to 2013. I think it's time for round two because there's been a lot of them including three moves across states. Amongst the beds around the world where I visited the REM world include a basement apartment, a few B&Bs, a few hotels, lots of Airbnbs, hometown bedrooms, a spiritual pilgrim retreat, a car, and an airplane.

It's been four weeks now since I announced my pregnancy at 28 weeks. So, four weeks later, here's a pregnancy update, including the same fun questionnaire as last time. (more…)

Weekly Small Pleasures #115
Skipped a week, so I'll include things from the last two weeks. I keep this up because it is quite nice to look back to the nice moments during the week, however small. No matter how hard things get, there is always something to be grateful for.  (more…)

Big (little) News!

Big (little) News!
I guess it's about time I tell you guys the news. A little baby girl is joining us! Yes, I'm pregnant. And I've just made it to the third trimester. Seemed like a good time to announce it over here. I also wondered whether or not to even announce it since it feels like something very personal. But I figured I normally announce big changes in my life here, mostly moves, and I have gotten
