another award :)

in december, i was happy to receive the liebster award. it’s not a renowned acknowledgement, but it was a big deal to me. it’s one of those things which may seem minuscule, but keep me motivated for (almost) 4 months of blogging. like the stories i’ve shared with other mothers. the common bond with those who’ve experienced similar struggles. the blessing of interacting with people of all stages in life. to claim a space to express my feelings and thoughts which are often suppressed. building connections with passionate and inspiring individuals. i’m very much enjoying this new venture of and all the wonderful things i learned because of it.

this month, i was nominated for the versatile blogger award
