We leave for Canada on Saturday....


Now, my cute kids.


We've had a fun few months. Everything is going great - I feel so blessed for everything right now because I am truly so lucky. I have a wonderful husband who has worked so hard to get everything back on track after the start of this year and who I am really beginning to fall so deeply in love with again after a tough year and the most beautiful girls in the world who make me smile so much every day. They are truly little princesses.

Of course I think my kids are the prettiest, smartest, most charming kids in the world. I'm their Mom, I have to. Disagree with me and I'll want to punch you in the face. It's a Mom thing.

Dakota is 3. She had a great birthday and is getting smarter every day. Of course she the smartest kid ever for her age. I would think that. But really, she's pretty smart. She's still wild and most definitely keeps me on my toes. She loves "exploring" and basically destroying everything in sight. Such a free spirit, LOL.

Pretty little Amelia is 18 months. She is the sweetest, kindest little one around. She idolizes her big sister, which is NEVER going to end well. But, it's cute for now. She's getting more confident at talking in English and Polish and is starting to try and form some sentences. Her antics make me laugh every day.

I'm ok, tired and working away - very excited for a trip home to Canada next month which I will be sure to try and update on the blog, so watch out for it.

Big move!

I haven't blogged in FAR too long, but, we are moving to our own place tomorrow! TOMORROW.

2 years we've been in this house, it's so bittersweet, so many memories, but we're very excited to get our own place and begin the next chapter. When I started this blog I was a lonely girl which no idea about Polish culture, but being here has helped me grow so much as a person. I've had my 2nd daughter, and watched both of them bloom into beautiful (but sassy!) toddlers, and learnt to love Poland for the beautiful country which it is.

Hopefully if I get a chance I will be back blogging soon - I do miss the blogosphere!

The reason why we don't paint often

Happy Easter!

From my crazy family, to yours.

I made many attempts to get a good picture of them together & failed. This is the best we could manage!

Wordless Wednesday: Typical Dakota!

On how everything is going to be "OK"

I haven't really blogged anything much about this, but Daniel & I have been having serious problems for a few months. Really, since last September. 6 months of SERIOUS problems. I honestly feel like he became a different person, he told me he hated me, I had ruined his life, among other things.

I honestly thought that was it. I didn't know what else to do. But I always hoped, I always kept hoping this isn't the real Daniel I know, this isn't the man of my dreams who will do anything for me & has always loved me and always will, this is something completely different. I prayed to God daily that somehow, some way, he would help to open Daniel's eyes and see that I was only trying to help him, I loved him & wanted to be with him as much as I did the day when he asked me to marry him.

God does answer prayer - last week Daniel asked to speak to me in private, his parents went out of the house and he sat me down and apologized to me for everything he has put me through in the past few months. I'm still skeptical, about how quickly he has changed. I'm not convinced he's better, but he knows himself he has been depressed and is going to go for conselling and medication, if necessary.

I just want to get my family back together now & be able to put this all behind us.
