I’m very excited to finally start blogging. This has been an idea of mine for a long time but I never had the time or even maybe the courage to do it. I always thought that it was very cool to read all the blogs of parents documenting every special moment of their family lives, so yes now it is finally my turn!
As a lot of you who are bloggers know, this is not something easy. It takes time and it is also a commitment to your readers so I wanted to reach the right moment in my life to start focusing and putting my mind to this. Of course I realised that the right moment will never arrive as us mothers are always super busy and especially tired so I came into the conclusion that it will be a long wait to reach the “right moment” and therefore, the moment has to be now. I started saying to myself: “Franca, stop delaying and crack on with it!” so that is what I’m doing now: getting on with it!
I know that it will be hard to do, especially when you have 2 kids to look after but the reality is that most of my blog is about them so it will give me lots of things to write about, well at least this is what I hope!
What is the main reason to start this blog?
To be honest, it is a little bit of everything. I’m married with 2 kids and this is such a special moment in my life that I wanted to document it. I was born in Peru so living in the UK for 10 years is obviously something hard to do. Being far away from your family and friends is not easy, especially being away from nice weather 🌞 and yummy food!! 😋. Writing about it will help to fill that feeling of loneliness or when you are misunderstood due to a difference of culture.
At the same time I find that is very therapeutic to write about the things that interest me and the things that we do as a family. It will be great to be able to show this blog to my girls when they are older.
Also, just before I got pregnant of my second daughter I stopped working and became a Stay at Home Mum (SAHM). This was different for me but I really love being with my girls. It is precious for me!
Therefore I needed to focus on something that will allow me to spend time with my girls and enjoy every single moment of their lives. At the same time I needed a distraction and be abel to relax as this is something that I really enjoy doing. Specially the idea of doing something that makes me happy which is very important when you are starting a new adventure. You need to feel fulfilled. And I think this new path in my life will do this. So far it is great! Let’s hope it keeps in that way. Finger crossed! ✌
Well this is pretty much my reasons to blog. I hope you like my very first post and that it makes you browse through all my posts. I really hope you do 😃.
If you have some questions just drop me an email or get in touch via social media. I will love to hear from you. Also, I would love to know what you think of my blog but please be nice with me. I can take a constructive criticism but not nasty comments! Let’s spread the love!
Love you all ❤️
