I want to Remember

I want to remember each day as it comes,
That I am here for a reason
That my life is a precious gift,
That I should cherish it

I want to remember, the little moments that take my breath away,
Little moments that I recount at the end of each day,
Moments that make me smile,
Moments that I hold close to my heart

I want to remember that am here to enjoy my life,
To remember that life is too short,
To know there is no time for holding grudges,
Only time for finding things that make me happy

I want to remember that today is the only time I have,
That yesterday is gone, whatever happened is now in the past,
Tomorrow is only but a dream, a promise that I cannot be sure of,
This hour, this minute, this second, is what I have!

I want to remember this when am angry,
When am feeling down, when it is dark,
When I think that am at the end of the road,
I want to remember!

I want to remember so I can take it easy,
So, I can choose to smile,
To love and to laugh with an open heart
And to cherish this remembrance.

I hope you remember too!

Current Crush: Wedges

As I go through this blogging experience, I get to read some awesome blogs. In the blog world, I fall in love constantly and I am happy for this. I came across Framed Frosting, sometime ago and am an avid follower. I especially love the current crush link-up on Thursdays and am happy to be participating today!
I have and am always crushing on wedges. It does not matter whether its warm or cold, I just love wedges and want to show you some of the ones, I really like!!


I especially love the last row of wedges. The colors and designs amaze me. They make me wanna wake up and go shopping. I love wedges and I wish I owned more of them and especially these ones. Hope you love them too.

How to Incorporate Yellow into Your Life

Today, I want to introduce you to the most gorgeous, brightest and beautiful colors on earth. I bet you already know it but you dont give it much attention. It is by far my favorite color and it is only fair to say that am obsessed!Lets hear it for YELLOW!!!

It does not matter what we are talking about, be it dresses, tops, shoes, interior decor, whatever: Yellow runs this place. I love the brightness and the sunshineness (is that a word???) of this color! Moreover, I think you can combine it with anything. But especially Grey. I dont know if its my love for Grey’s Anatomy or otherwise but I think a combination of two of my most favorite things is a good Combo. So after much thought an analysis, I think my wedding’s theme colors will be Yellow and Grey.

I digress!!,please forgive me. So I was talking about how Yellow can be combined with anything. Black, blue, purple, Green, Indigo (eeerrrr!!!) or any other colors that you might invent. I just love it and I welcome you on a joourney of how Yellow can be incorporated into your and my life!
1. To start a blog post. I laugh at myself right now!

2. Yellow dresses, wedges, pumps, all of it. And that blue bag goes really well with it.

 3. Blazer, with jeans and stripped top. Beautiful. Chevron, grey and yellow, YES!!!! Lacy dress in a very light shade of yellow is gorgeous too.

 4. And then there was Lace, Yellow Lace to be specific. And I fell in love. And we lived happily ever after!Nothing else to say!

5. Oh and just so you know, yellow is good for the house too. Just look at these accessories or beauties as I call them. Too awesome.

I think I’ll just relax and admire everything in yellow. I love yellow. It brightens my days even when it is just on the internet. I hope you discover the power of Yellow. And by the way, Yellow is my guiding word for this year: to brighten mine and other people’s lives and spread sunshine in our world.
The only way we can have more yellow right now is by listening to Coldplay’s; yellow. That way our world would be complete. 
Love you and just so you know, I loved writing this post and I hope you enjoy reading it!

Am So Sleepy- Pinteresting

Am crazy tired today. Am just a few minutes away from jumping into bed with all clothes on. But then I thought to myself, ‘What  kind of Wednesday would it be if I did not give you the pleasure of knowing what av been pinning this week?” The answer I gave myself was, ‘Not such a good one’. And here I am, pinning around and sharing it with you all. Enjoy my randomness

Pinteresting and I found a New Love

Its mid-week people!Can I hear Yeah!!!!! Only one more day to Friday! The week has been cool so far, not much going on. Just work, sleep and hormones. Yeah, I think that covers it.
Anyway to far more interesting matters, I found a new love. Its flexible, its movable and very interesting. Guess what? YOGA! I know, this is not the first time I have started yoga and thought it was awesome!But, this time, I hope to make it more of a routine, a habit. Yeah, I hope to be more flexible and twist my body up. For now, its like a morning and evening thingy. When I wake up and before I go to bed. So, this Wednesday is all about my newest love. Enjoy all the twistedness.

Now only if I could do half of these poses, I would be one happy girl.

Letters to my Future Husband #6

Hey lovely readers? Its that time again to write to the future Mr. Millie. I never knew that inspiration could take so long, but its here so lets hope he is reading and that it touches some part of his heart.

Dear [FH],
Hi honey, dear, darling, sweetheart and all the other sweet words I might choose to call you! I am Ok, just taking each day as it comes. Life is fine, not too much drama. I actually like my life right now and I hope it is headed in the right direction. The weather is kind of complicated. Somedays, the sun decides to come out and some others, its just plain cold. Today is kinda cold, actually my feet are freezing but I will be ok.

How are you?Is everything ok? I guess it is coz if it weren’t, you would have reported it. And if it isn’t, then I will pray and by tomorrow, everything will be better. Is it cold? Or maybe warm or hot where you are?I wish you could just tell me so I know what your life is like. Oh dear, I must admit that I miss you. Do you understand? You know I said the same thing in the last letter but I dont think you understand. I miss you so much. In a way that I cannot explain. But am ready to wait for you.

Sweerie, when the time comes for us to meet, I hope you will be ready. Ready to receive the best kind of love from me. The kind that sticks in the heart and remains there forever. I hope you will be ready to share your life with me. That is the reason why all human beings crave connection. We want to share our lives with someone else. That is what I want with you. To share our lives together. To know that someone notices and values my existence. That is is not all in vain. I am getting ready for all this and more and hope you are too.

I love you my baby and wish to see you soon.
Many hugs and kissess!

Readers, I hope he listens to me and comes along very soon. Hold your breath and I’ll hold mine and when we let go, he will be here.

When things dont make sense

There are times when I just sit around and wonder which part of my life makes sense! I try to unravel many aspects of my life and I do not seem to find the kind of sense that am looking for. But, something happens, a call, a simple text, a kiss on the cheek, a hug, a comment on my blog and I remember what makes sense, LOVE. When everything else does not make sense, just try, try and remember those people you love and you will soon find some sense in your life!

Oh How Pinteresting,So long

Hey beautiful people? I know, am bad but you have to forgive me. I’ve been doing so much the last days that I almost forgot about blogging. I also did not have internet access but now am back. I know you missed me and I missed you too. At least, I hope someone out there missed me. Anyway, I just hope you are well and normal posting resumes from now onwards. Lets join with Michelle from The Vintage Apple and see what beauty Pinterest comes up with.

Awesome Weekend

So, this weekend I sought out to find some time to spend with family. I have been MIA from home for almost a month and a half and I really needed to get there. So Saturday, I packed up and took the 2 hour journey home. I can tell you right now that it was totally worth it or I could tell you at the end of the post. Take your pick.

I got to spend time with my parents. I really missed my mum. I am really grateful for the opportunity to talk and just be together. I loved the cooking and the laughter and jokes. Am also grateful for my brother, the inside jokes and football discussions. Totally loved it.

Am grateful for getting time to spend time with my nieces. The latest addition being Crystal who is 5 months old. The rest are Elizabeth, Diana and Mercy. I loved every bit of being with them. Their smiles are contagious and their laughter infectitious. Am so happy because I had missed them so much. I guess I really didn’t know how much I had missed them until I saw them.

Anyway, as stated above, I had an awesome time and I think am already missing everyone all over again. Hope you enjoyed yours and wish you and me a great week ahead!
