Happy first day of spring lovelies! And welcome back to the newly face-lifted Cecylia.com! Sorry I stepped out for (shock horror) nearly a month: the longest break I’ve ever taken since this blog’s inception over half a decade ago. Since we last spoke, there’ve been many new things in my neck of the woods. We’ve moved into a new house (a heartfelt thanks to our dear friends and family who helped us with our  E P I C  move). There’s an entire new neighborhood for us to discover including a new park for Theodore’s walks! Our car is getting a new door (because it was punched by a truck, but thankfully no one was hurt). I’ve gained a new perspective on life and have a new direction for the blog (I’ll reveal that in future posts). And guess what? I got a new pair of shoes!

In fact, it will have a new look, new content and new focus. I would love…Continue Reading

Picture this. You hear the door knock. You rub your eyes, it’s 10 am. Your alarm went off 2 hours ago but your body refuses to let you up. Your newborn is sleeping on top of you even though he’s usually in his own cot, in his own room. What’s going on? Still in your pajamas, unbrushed hair in your eyes, the previous night flashes before you. Baby had colic. You had no sleep. You rush to the knocking door, and there standing before you a tall, slim, and drop-dead-gorgeous blonde holding a bright big basket of food. “Hello! I’m Victoria from Cupp Australia!” It was a major case of baby brains and I almost keeled over from embarrassment. But Victoria assures me that as a mother of two, she completely understands. THANK GOD! We take a seat in the very messy living room. Apparently baby had spewed over the bed so I…Continue Reading
