Thank heavens for the miracle of my five-year-old son Omer crashing earlier than usual tonight, giving me a leeway to write this post before our big move tomorrow (learn more about our move here and here!) Now I really can’t believe it! Two award nominations in just a month and a half into the blogosphere. […]
I am so excited to accept my first ever award nomination after a month of immersing myself in the amazing world of blogging! Thanks a million to Jacqueline Frias for NOMINATING ME to the 2017 Liebster Award for discovering new blogs. Jacqueline is a gorgeous mother of TWO UNDER TWO (who have pretty names by […]
After a week from being off and busy cleaning up all our mess from our recent move to our new home, I’ve been able to check in again. Finally! Read: New Year, New DIY Home Just to give you a glimpse of how much work I still needed to do in getting our lives back […]
One of the reasons why I love the months of April and October is because of the semi-annual general conference of the Church I belong to (Click HERE to learn more!). During these semi-annual conferences, I am able to receive lots of inspiration and faith-fortifying messages from great leaders whom I love. These messages serve […]
Living in a calamity-prone country like the Philippines has never been easy. As a young girl, I have been a witness of deaths among fellow Filipinos who lived just islands or towns away from me, because of some super typhoon, high-intensity earthquake, landslide, fire, etc. I could still remember the long weeks we spent without […]
When I decided to start a blog over just a month ago, I never really expected that I’d be blogging about parenting. Although my niche is about motherhood, my mind was more inclined to talk about home décor, food ideas and other craft projects with my son Omer rather than parenting. This may be partly […]
“What are your plans this week hon?” That is a question you would often hear in our home. Compared to daily or monthly planning, I find that weekly planning is best suited for our family’s lifestyle. However, it has always been a bit of a challenge, especially with my husband Yuli’s ever-changing work schedule. We […]
So–I’ve been again popping my eyeballs out reading blog after blog looking for inspirations for our to-be-living-room in October. As I have mentioned in my previous posts, you may know that we are moving out from a tiny apartment to a not-so-big but bigger-than-our-apartment house, and we are just so excited! I promised to update […]
I have told you in this post that we are moving out from our apartment in October, and that we are so so excited for a much bigger space (with a garage for our dog named Ted and a little spot for me to start growing plants, dream come true!) to come for our little family. […]
One of my favorite go-to snacks for my five-year-old son are these baked mini-Hawaiian pizzas. I don’t think anyone could ever go wrong with pizzas! Besides the fact that it’s so quick and easy to prepare, it’s also super cheap. I estimated that one preparation yielding 2 dozen mini pizzas cost me around Php 150.00 […]
I am Joylee, a paralegal by day and mother by night. Of all the hats that I wear, I like being a wife to Yuli and nanay (mother) to Omer best.
The goal of this blog is to find ways to make motherhood simple and fun. I enjoy doing DIY home decors and crafts for kids, baking, family dates and checking things off the list. I don’t enjoy budgeting, dressing up, and cooking.
