My First Airplane Trip With My 3-Year-Old is a Success

And we made it! Our first airplane trip without papa was a success. Well, at least the end result was great, although my wish for an uneventful trip went out the window… Let’s just say that the trip began with a bang.

The Lazy Blogger’s Way to Posting Christmas Tree Photos

Ok, so I’ve been seeing all these blogs that display great photos of their Christmas trees on a post, and I decided it was my turn to put up my own photo. But, I didn’t want to just put up a regular photo, and was inspired by those skilled photographer bloggers that display beautiful close-ups of their tree, showing only a small part of it. The problem, however, was that when this idea floated into my head, I found myself comfortably sitting on the balcony and did not want to get up. This, of course presented a problem, because I needed to [ ... ]
