A Look Back at 2013

A Look Back...2013

2013 was an amazing year filled with growth and life changing experiences. From my pregnancy journey to child birth and motherhood, God has been faithful. Today, I am a proud daughter, working mom, wife and friend. My mother instilled in me that with hard work, determination, perseverance and faith in God, all things work out for good.

I am blessed with a wonderful son who melts my heart every day. Being a working mom means lots and lots of adjustments. There are days of sleepless nights, early and long work hours, photo-shoots and blogging activities. Everything pays off in the end.

Though I took off from blogging before and after my pregnancy, I can definitely say that this year has been amazing because of my wonderful readers who support me constantly. Your comments and emails overwhelm me with love and motivation. You all make me want to blog more even on those days when I am tired and exhausted. 2014 will be a great, fun and even more inspiring year. Also, a big thank you to my wonderful sponsors, collaborators and every person/organization I partnered with i.e. 4moms, DSW, Ivy, Soko, Coupon.com and so many others who have featured me on their sites…thank you!

A big thank you to a great friend and photographer Paosin, I really appreciate your efforts. Thank you so much for the amazing photos.

Last but not the least, a special thank you to my amazing husband who has always supported my dreams and visions.  He goes with me to several events and meetings, and takes the time to edit and shoot all my videos (yes, Mr. LynksDrivers). He tirelessly listens to all my ideas and offers great suggestions and insights…thanks babe 😉 Love you….

To my joy, the president of our house, the person who decides whether we go to bed or not lol (our baby Nolan). Thank you so much for making me a much better person. You are truly a blessing. Mummy loves you…

Again, to all my readers, thank YOU for your continuous support. It feels like I have been on this journey with each and every one of you guys…a journey of growth, a quest to discover and a movement to inspire.

Happy New Year

CHEERS to 2014!
