THREE HEARTS

The last 38 weeks plus 3 days have been an amazing journey, feeling our twins grow directly beneath my heart. Today I wanted to share a personal post with you from all of the things we did to help conceive our babies to what it was like being pregnant with twins. My husband and I tried to have a baby a few months after returning from our trip to Africa. Since I had to take malaria prevention tablets before, during and after our trip, I wanted to make sure I was completely off the malaria prevention tablets and have the drugs out…

BABY SHOWER

For someone who packed up her bags and left her family and close friends on the west-coast to be with ‘the one’, I am so grateful for the incredible amount of  love I have received from my husband’s family and our new found friends for Zayn & Reyha!

So it’s no surprise that I picked Napa Valley as the destination for our baby moon.…

POSITIVE PATH

Over a decade ago I came across a book that helped me get onto a positive path. It not only helped make me a better person but also steered me towards developing positive habits.  These habits radiated around me and permeated into the lives of people whose paths crossed mine. The book is Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. I am sure you have come across this book or have heard great things about it. So I won’t give away everything as I feel it is a gem and a must have but I will share a few takeaways.
