Day 215 – And so it went…

D

Ah, yesterday was much more than we have planned and expected it would be. We had an amazing day and the best part was that Ephia had a great time. I am not sure if she knew it was her birthday, but this year she definitely understood everything was about her. She had a few guests and she made a new friend, who’s almost her age. She showed us what a great host she can be, as she avoided...

Day 214 – Another year, another story

D

Last year I was telling you the story about how I’ve met my daughter and tried to shape an image of our first year together. That was the year when I had to reinvent myself and recreate beauty out of nothing. This year the paths have been paved, beauty has been seeded and Ephia became one of my rocks, you know, the kind of rock you keep safely in your pocket and polish it until it grows...

Day 213 – Big day

D

Today’s post is going to be the shortest of them all. Tomorrow is a big and special day for us so we are in the midst of preparations. Ephia is turning two years old tomorrow. Balloons are invading our house and faces are being painted on them. Of course half of them ended up popping, but their existence was felt while it lasted. So, here it is: the shortest post of this project. Tomorrow...

Day 209 – Introducing the photographer of the house

D

I have waited for two hundred and nine days to introduce you to the most important person in my life and what better day to do it, if not on his birthday which also marks our anniversary. I’ve met D sixteen years ago (I know, right?) in high school and faith made it so that we end up in the same class together, but don’t be deceived, we hated each other back then. He was this short...

Day 18 – My Hook

D

Four years ago today, my godson was being born. Around this hour in the middle of the night, I was talking to his mother on the phone and she was begging me to tell her jokes or new gossip stories of our friends so that she could be able to go through the pains of labor. I remember staying up all night, thinking what a wonderful thing it was to be a godmother and it truly is. I met him when he...

Day 13 – For a special guy

D

Today one of my favorite people is celebrating his 29th birthday. Supposedly he is my cousin in-law (if that’s a thing), but I’ve always seen him as a funny, crazy, sometimes weird friend. I must say that I tend not to have many close friends, and most certainly I don’t brag about them, but in some kind of strange way he got stuck in the top five. Maybe because he is weird, in a good way and he...

Day 2 – Party in the cemetery

D

It was almost perfect. Like those days when you wake up and you know it’s going to be a good day, maybe because you will end it by celebrating your birthday in a cemetery. I woke up at 10.30 am, as any responsible mom does (cruel joke for the sleep-deprived moms) and couldn’t wait to start my day. Well, my daughter had other plans, and they included to sleep some more. While I was walking into...
