Still here

Busy quiet time

Just a post to say that I’m still here. When there’s a long pause in blogging, it’s usually because of a blogging burnout or having no time to blog. It’s been a combination of both for me. It’s a good thing, really, but I do miss writing for the love of it.  Read more…

Fill your home with love #WeAreHomeMade

by | Posted in Motherhood, Parenting, Working Mom | 0 comment

I’ve been told I don’t love my son enough because I work full-time. I’ve dealt with “Ano ba yan?!” kind of stares from strangers at restaurants when my then-toddler shouted at our table. I saw folks stare at my 6-year-old’s stained khaki pants during graduation. Even I was surprised — those black stains sure weren’t […] Read more…

Alone Time Finally

alone time

That’s just part of what being a Mom is like, right? Juggling everything, dropping a few balls but realizing it’s okay, you can pick them up anyway and start juggling again. Then you get into the groove of it until finally you’re dancing to the rhythm of busy-ness and before you know it, you’ve decluttered the play area, fed your husband and son dinner, sang a lullaby to your son till he drifted off to dreamland AND got a long shower somewhere in there, which makes you feel a little more human but very much a winner.

January Stories

Maybe somewhere in my stories you’ll find a nugget or two that connects with you. If there is one, let me know what it is! Read more…

Love language

Love language: What do you do when your love language isn’t the same?

Each of us has our own way of expressing and receiving love. I’m beginning to see that in some of our arguments as husband and wife, it’s mostly rooted in not understanding each other’s love language. One of the ways I have learned to better understand my husband is realizing that our love language is not the same.

Cake Mix Cookies Recipe

This Cake Mix Cookies recipe is one of my all-time favorite recipes ever. It’s so simple to follow and the results are deliciously soft and moist cake mix cookies. Mmm!

I’m not big on baking, as I’m not too fond about how precise every measurement should be. I’m more the throw-it-in-the-pan-and-mix-it-up kind of cook. But last December, I wanted to try baking cookies. There were some failed attempts, but after several tries and various adaptations of other people’s recipes, I finally got the perfect Cake Mix Cookies recipe for our family. Here’s the recipe! :) Read more…
