Hello Ladies!!!!!

July is truly an important month in my life.

Many things happen to me in July but this year’s July is super-super dupa. I am loving it and I am over the moon that I got featured on SITS today. How to BlogGOSH, gosh, gosh I thought I was never going to be lucky enough to get featured on one of the most important and inspiring social media websites on the blog-sphere. Imagine my excitement when I opened my email and read that my SITS day is TODAY!

If you are waiting for your turn don’t give up hope.

I am sure most of you have found amazing bloggers to follow and support thanks to SITs, if you haven’t you must join the community.

I am rambling too much, right?

My heart is pounding as I write… okay, let’s me compose myself. Deep BREATH!


Let’s listen to one of my favourite songs.

My wedding first dance song. Getting married to my true love was like heaven, and Bryan Adams sung how I felt so well. This week I will feel like in heaven because my big wedding anniversary is coming up {the small one is celebrated in April} :)!

But before the music stops, few facts about my life:

  1. April 2001 – I meet a gorgeous, funny and warm hearted British guy in my small town just few hours from Verona and Padova, north-east of Italy. {One Night AT The Pub}. It was a long distance love.
  2. 2003 – he proposed to me, and we set the wedding date for July 26, 2003. I chickened out, awww.
  3. 25 December 2004 – he proposed again {Merry Christmas and the engagement ring}.
  4. 2 April 2005 – we tied the knot in a small civil wedding.
  5. 30 July 2005 – we tied the knot in a big church wedding in the castle of my town. We danced to Bryan Adams and some cool party eighties tunes. We left the ceremony just as the blessing of rain was descending from the sky. He is my true love, because he gives me patience, respect and love in abundance.
  6. 01 August 2005 – I moved from Italy to live married life with hubby in London, UK.
  7. February 2006 – I started university reading English Lit. and History.
  8. March 2006 – we bought our first place, a 1930’s flat.
  9. 25 December 2009 – I started this blog to document my journey towards motherhood.
  10. April 2010 – began TTC (trying to conceive)
  11. December 2010 – BA graduations 2:1.
  12. March 2011 – we moved to Canada, and we found out I am expecting.
  13. 26 July 2011 – I am featured on SITS.
  14. November 2011 – our first baby is due. week19love

What a great decade I’ve lived since I met my true love, eh? And the adventure continues__________All thanks to the Almighty. I believe that His blessing is eternal!


That’s me life in 200+ words.

So welcome, my new friends, I hope you’ll stick around. And I hope you’ll stay a while. As Bryan sings “…love is all I need…” and I find it in my hubby’s arms and your comments :).

I hope my ramblings don’t scare you off. Instead, stand by me in this journey ;)!

Now, feel free to look around my humble blog-home!
