You may or may not know this – but in 2016, this very blog was the Runner Up for Best Parenting Blog in the South African Blog Awards!
I was, and still am completely honoured that my readers felt that this blog was worthy of the title and actually took their precious time to vote in it’s favour!
It really means the world to me.
When I started this Blog just over 3 years ago, I had no clue of what I was doing really. I knew that I wanted a creative place to store some memories but I had no idea of what it took or the potential it had to grow.
Since then, it has exceeded my expectations and has opened up a whole new world for me and my family. This past year especially, has been so good – I have collaborated with amazing partners and loved engaging with all of my readers!
December is here and the festive season has seriously begun in our household. We put up our tree on Friday evening and the kids were literally bursting with excitement as they hung their little ornaments.
The festive spirit is continuing all weekend with concerts and get-togethers, which is what this time of year is about really! My kids love cakes and cookies, so it’s natural for them to associate it with good times like these. I however don’t like having dozens of cookies and cakes hanging around in the kitchen, because as you know – too much of a good thing is bad. It’s way too tempting for Mom too!
It’s way too tempting for Mom too!
This is why I absolutely love this recipe I’m going to share with you. It only makes 2 large cookies. Bonus: it takes a couple of minutes to make!
If you follow me on social media, you’ll see that I often receive new products to try out, sometimes before it even hits store shelves!
This month we received some really awesome new goodies to play around with, so I thought I’d sum up some of our favourites!
We had loads of fun unboxing these goodies…
The past few weeks have just gone by so quickly! It is honestly a blur to me.
Not only is the year almost over, I’ve succesfully completed all six modules of my GetSmarter online course and without blowing my own horn here – I am so chuffed with my results!
What’s even most exciting to me is the fact that I have SO many new ideas and things I can immediately start implementing – without physically even having my certificate!
The overall experience has been a really positive one. While it was a bit of a challenge making time for my learning, it was time well spent and completely relevant to my career goals.
