First of all I want to share with you a great news!
This Monday my post about this project was published on Bonbon Break website. You can read it here!!!
So far it has received 203 “likes” on their fb page, and 93 “likes” on their webpage. Honestly I am so, so surprised that it drew so many readers; At the same time I am so thrilled and happy. As I wrote here, on my blog, and then I repeated it in this essay for Bonbon Break:
At some point this project took on a life of its own. It became more about US than about ME. More about motherhood than just one mother.
I am so thankful for and so inspired by all the comments I’ve gotten here, on Bonbon Break, as well as on World Moms Blog; it’s thanks to this post for WMB Kathy from Bonbon Break has found me and asked if I would be willing to share my experience in this project with their readers!
It is a fact, the last touch to this post comes from my husband. He went through this essay, sentence by sentence, in order to find grammatical and stylistic errors in it, change them and explain why “this way not the other”.
It was, still, such an amazing thing to read one person’s words
I love this one…, the message, the writing, and the photos!
Still, how big of a smile appeared on my face when I read those words!
Somebody liked MY WRITING!!! IN ENGLISH, so to speak!
People who know me from High School and College know how much I hated English language. I was bad at it, it frustrated me, very often I was depressed because of it, especially while in college, where I had to repeat one year of English classes. Even then I almost failed, second time. Believe me! My English speaking and writing skills sucked REALLY, I mean, REALLY bad!!!
I was the last person, my teachers thought, would be out there writing blog, expressing my thoughts in full sentences in English language!
It is amazing where life takes us. Isn’t it.
Maybe in a few years I’ll be able to write an essay in Russian!
On Friday I took some silly photos for my post about coconut-coffee facial scrub.
I really like the first picture but the second one is a funny one so I’ve decided to use both…
There is nothing wrong in showing my cross-eyed face once in a while ;)
One of those picture that doesn’t have much story behind it. It took me almost an hour (while both kids were asleep – MIRACLE!!!) to finally gave up and stop taking pictures. I wasn’t happy with a single photo I had taken that day. I tried this and that. I was completely out of ideas. I mean COMPLETELY.
They were all really bad.
I looked bad, the light was bad, the idea was bad.
A lot of writing as for a picture without a story behind… huh? ;)
Loosing more hair time.
Braids on my head is a thing I was famous for from high school. I would sit in class, making small braids in my hair. Not only in class but almost anytime I had my hands free. It has always relaxed me. Have no idea why.
Ok, I think that this is great example of a picture without a story behind it!
So I leave it like that.
“What I wore Wednesday” – it’s a name of many link-ups out there. Something like this one. Of course, I never participate in those.
It’s nice, though, to visit them and see that people out there wear nice cloths, shoes, make-up. I do look the same almost every single day. If we go somewhere I wear things that are comfortable, tops ready to be pulled up in a hurry in order to feed No.2. How nice and stylish do I look going to the park with my girls, you think?
It’s funny that these days going grocery shopping I feel like it’s my time to look nice, wear nice shoes, rings and earings.
So, yes, this it what I wore on Wednesday,
and on Tuesday:
This is for this week Bonnie’s them “Liquid”:
How do you like your tea?!
