  2. “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." I'm so framing this!
    Happy International Women's day Sisi! (oh and I'm probably late on this, but I'm loving the blog's new look! )

  3. Sisi Yemmie,I was telling one of my twin daughters and a friend last week, that we should at least have a month of celebration, instead of just one day, here in the US. Mothers risk their lives to bring children into this world.The world can't be ok without mothers.There's a special blessing for mothers and we should trust our instincts more often,it is a gift to us from God.

  4. Great inspiration quotes! And thank YOU for taking out the google friends list on your blog!! Your website looks so much better and cleaner now with less clutter :-)
