Life Lately

Where to start, so much has happened lately...

Lately...

we attended my sister's wedding. It was absolutely amazing. She never ceases to amaze me with all her skills and hard work. She made

everything

for her wedding; from the decor to the games, the mass booklet and the invitations. I love you little sister, and I am very proud of you.

Lately...

we welcomed home a 4th member to our family. Yup, I delivered my baby. I'll be posting his birth story soon.

Lately...

I bought a 50mm f1.4 lens for my Canon DSLR and I absolutely love it. It's a bit of a learning curve, but I feel like my photography is about to hit another level.

Lately...

I attended my very first blogging conference hosted by

Made in Blog

. It was a wonderful experience. I learned a whole bunch and got to meet some amazing local bloggers. Most importantly, I learned that blogging is about staying authentic and true to yourself, without comparison or competition.

Lately...

we celebrated my first son's second birthday. He's 2 already, isn't that crazy? When people say time flies and children grow up too fast... it's true! I really have to start appreciating each little moment more. Anyway, I have a whole series of posts coming up on things I made/prepared for his birthday so stay tuned; the first of the series was my

eggless white cake

recipe, which is amazing by the way, so you should definitely try it out.

Lately...

I started thinning out our garden and we enjoyed some very strong tasting radishes. My son was a little shocked.

Lately...

I've been taking the

Blog Life

course by A Beautiful Mess and I love it! I haven't completed much of it yet because I've been very busy, but I've started planning a bit more what I want to blog about and how I want to organize it. I intend to start documenting my home decorating, give some family insights as well as many DIY projects. Lots of new stuff to comes so stay tuned.

Lately...

we spent a lot of time outdoors. The winter was so long this year that every opportunity we get to go outside, we do. We went to Parc Safari and loved it. As a matter of fact, our car almost got eaten by a camel. It was awesome. We also spent a day at the beach and had a picnic at a local park. We also started some work on our yard and cooked BBQ.
