I finally became a mom on the 8th of March to a beautiful baby girl. As I write this, she is lying here next to me fighting the urge to fall asleep, lol! That’s one thing I am failing to understand about newborns – why fight the urge to sleep when you are sleepy??? sigh! Motherhood has been a massive learning curve, I only now (5 weeks later) feel like I am getting some sort of hang to it. However, just as I feel like I have figured her out, she switches it up on me and does the complete opposite and leaves me more confused than ever!
Hey boos, I mentioned in this post that I will be taking some time off blogging to take out to get acclimated to being a first time mom. I am currently heavily pregnant and ready to give birth any day now (who knows, I might have given birth by the time this post comes out 😀) and thus, my blogging break has started. I want to enjoy this time and take some time out to rest rather than thinking about writing posts. I won’t be gone forever though, I will be back soon! You can still interact with me on social media, my handle is @bylungi on all platforms.
Love, Lungi ❤️
This is my first Taking Stock for 2017 – like I always say, I love doing these posts because they sort of put a time stamp on my life. I can always look back and see what was happening and how I was feeling at a certain point in my life. This version of taking stock will be quite pregnancy heavy, because it is one of the biggest things that is happening in my life right now and it is dominating every aspect of my life as I get closer to my due date.
I don’t even know where to begin writing this post, I’ve had so many drafts that I have written and re-written and none of them seem ‘perfect’. My husband and I are expecting our first child 🙂 – I have been cooking this little one inside of me since last year. Pregnancy hasn’t been easy for me at all – I really didn’t know what to expect, but being sick all the time and not really feeling like myself was not what I expected, but it’s what I got. I have great respect for people who go through this multiple times; but maybe they are the lucky ones who have easy pregnancies. Even with all the downsides and bad symptoms I have experienced, I am very excited for this new adventure in our lives.
Happy New Year boos! I hope 2017 is everything and more for you and that all your dreams come true.
After taking a break over the festive season, I feel ready and rested to tackle the blog for another year and bring you great content as per usual. Over the holidays, I enjoyed lots of hours of not doing anything – it was quite nice not to be on any schedule. I took the most delicious afternoon naps and ate everything that my heart desired!
Thank you again for the support for my blog in 2016, it really means a lot! Here’s to growing my blog to greater heights in 2017!
Hey boos, it’s about that time of the year! After blogging for a full year straight – I can officially say, I am tiredt! Thus I will be taking a blogging break from now till mid January 2017. I will take this time out to relax, be with family and just have as many lie ins as I can manage. I’ll be spending most of my break in Durban, with a few stints in my hometown. I am actually looking forward to spending the festive season in Durban.
For my break, there will be no new posts on my blog and no videos on my Youtube channel. However, you can catch up on the 100+ posts that I have published on the blog and the 50+ videos uploaded to my YouTube channel in 2016.
I hope you all have a great festive season, thank you for all the support and I will see you again in the new year!
