couple, man kissing girl on the forehead If you think a successful relationship is based on hard work, you are probably right. By introducing a couple of new activities and shaking up your everyday routines, your relationship will flourish. If you focus on what’s wrong it should be in an attempt to fix it. Don’t dwell too much on the negative stuff, shift some of that focus to introducing some novelties in the relationship. Research shows that this has a much better impact on your happiness as a couple. So, here are some things that can fortify your relationship and bring you closer to your partner.

76th & Newbury personalized art for house decoration or gift for any special occasion, family travel map log I adore anything personalized. If you've seen my son's first birthday party, you'll see that I had most of the decorations, even his outfit, personalized. Whenever we'd go home to Manila, I'd have something made that's personalized for my kids if not for our family, like our family hand print on a ceramic plate. I treasure every memory I've made (and yet to make) with my family, and having something personalized captures that perfect moment and ensures that we'd be able to look back years from then and remind us how happy we were or little the kids were at that moment.

My daughter first started showing interest in the potty when she was 18 months. Being the excited mom that I am, I rushed to my nearest Target the first chance I got and purchased this potty. One day, she said she wanted to go to the potty so we just sat her there and she peed on her own. That was pretty exciting for us but we didn’t do anything after that because her school...

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was good - our office closed early last Friday so I took advantage of it by getting snack from McDonald's on my way home and we had afternoon snack together as a family; then we took the kids to a nearby playground. On Saturday, we went to visit and had dinner with my mother-in-law so the kids can spend time with her. We went to hear the mass on Easter Sunday, then gave the kids their gifts from the Easter Bunny. We spent the rest of the day at home playing. I was able to see a couple episodes of This Is Us while the kids are taking their nap last Sunday so it was a great weekend; except I'm down with a virus and I am literally in my PJs and robe sitting on the couch with a whole roll of paper towel and plastic bag beside me as I'm typing this up. Anyway, I wanted to share with you the off the shoulder crochet dress that I wore to church last Sunday which is less than $30 and perfect for spring.

Mommy and toddlers holding I See Me! personalized children's book From the time my kids were born, I always make it a point to include reading to them in our routine. When they were younger, I would read to them every night before they go to sleep. They've always loved reading; which is why I would always give them a book as a gift for any occasion. But now that they're a little bit older, they seem to have a shorter interest in books; and seem to be more interested in playing other toys. I guess it's my fault because I somehow let our bedtime story slipped into the every day craziness of our lives.

My mom is one of the women I know who isn't addicted to shoes; she is fascinated to flip flops (the ones with great quality) though. I can still remember back when I used to live in the Philippines, I would always take her out on a date for Mother's Day or her birthday and give her a new pair of flip flops. She would always get excited every time I get her a pair so I thought that's what she really wants. But that was until I became a mother and actually got to experience what being a mom is really all about.

I remember back when I was younger, I would always find myself wearing denim overalls if I'm not wearing baggy jeans (yup, I went through that phase too); and I've always loved seeing little ones wearing them because they look so adorable in overalls. So I guess it's not really surprising that I wanted to try wearing them again now that I'm a grown woman right?

woman with a guitar playing a song I love music and I can definitely say that music has been a huge part of my life. I remember back when I was younger, I would turn to music either when I was happy or sad; especially when I was heartbroken. There's something about hearing someone sing some words accompanied by a melody that makes it so heartfelt and extremely relatable. I absolutely remember I used to cry while listening to a song when I was trying to mend a broken heart; while I used to feel really in love and happy when I was listening to cheery songs. And for some people, music has become their way of expressing how they feel which is why people write songs.

family in front of Statue of Liberty at Liberty Island, New York, taken at a family trip Back in November, we drove to New York for a few days to show my parents around. I would consider it as one of the most stressful trips I've taken so far with my kids, mostly because I was trying make sure that my parents get to see as much tourist attractions as possible while also trying to accommodate my kids' schedule. I was always rushing to enjoy where we were because I knew we had to leave soon so the kids could take their nap on time. So today, I'll be sharing with you what to do (and not to do) to survive sightseeing in New York with your toddler.

Toddler easter outfit idea for both girls and boys This year, I told myself that I won't be getting new Easter clothes for my kids because they already have TONS of clothes. I thought if I get them another cute outfit, they'll only get to wear them for a few times before they grow out of it. So I plan to just re-use whatever pastel-colored clothes they have. But last Saturday night, I found myself paying for an entire Easter outfit, including accessories, for both of my kids. What?! I know right? That's an absolute #MomProblems right there. The outfits for kids are just too cute to resist; which inspired me to do this post. So if you're looking for some Easter outfit ideas for your kids, then look no further. I've rounded up some of the cutest Easter outfits for your toddlers! And I have options for both girls and boys!
