this guy... i miss...

 as we're starting to fall deeply in love with a new place, there is a spot in my heart that is not completely at ease. and im just going to let it out here..

cos under all that moving-in excitement and perfection, it would never be perfect without our first baby. we thought long and hard about bringing him with us. but the long flights. the being in a confined space away from us. the cold. the new environment... everything added together and did not make sense for him. 

we found a friend who is taking extremely good care of him and he's started eating well (for the first time in his life!! even stealing food from his pal!) and sends us pictures ever so often of our dear muffin. and they're the cutest family too! so we're so happy to have them in our lives!!

still each time we pass a dog, we would all coo and fuss over them. and when we step through the door, blake still says "tadaima, muumuu" (japanese :: i'm home). and we miss him curling up at our feet dearly!

here's a picture of him cuddling up with his new mate. in case you don't know, he's the little spoon!! he always is!

hello adventures!!!

.... and we're off! we're super excited this morning! cos we're headed across the world onto our next big adventure. we've known about this for a month or so and have been excitedly lining our ducks in place... and we're in the UK!!

fortunately, we have blake with us but unfortunately, we're unable to move musashi as its too short to put his heart through a long haul flight. but too long for my heart. but i guess in the bigger scheme of things, i need to put his heart ahead of mine. im missing him terribly already but he's in good hands. and we're coming back for you, muu (and singapore!)

it's going to be great fun and a good time for our family to recharge and have a ponder about how our life is currently. blake is going to have a great time once he realizes that he's going to the land of thomas and peppa. we're both still working (so awesome!) and blake will be attending school! it's going to be an interesting experience. 

very grateful for the recommendations sent our way and if you have other must see or do in UK/europe, drop me a note!! i'll probably take a few days to settle in with the boys so till then!!

lots of kisses!!

I've been obsessing over these awesome leather sandals from valentino for a bit. it looks super chic on the runway and can be dressed up or down... and best things is, i used to be CRAZY over gladiator lace ups (reminiscent of my ballet shoes) when i was a weird teen. so i feel like this is a blast from my past!! 

and a DIY version here too by the always awesome love maegen!

what do you think!? yay or nay!?

back from paradise...

i just came home from the loveliest of lovely weekend with the husband! with stunning blue like that as a backdrop for our adventures, beautiful marine life (we joked about having a sea cucumber pet. but truth is, he was really hanging out with us a lot!!), never ending happy hour and wait for it.... no baby in tow! wooohoo! :) best of best! 

it'll take D a bit to recover from the crazy sun and the mountain of work we left behind but once we get rollin' i'll be able to share more of these jaw-dropping pictures from our proper camera!! *swoons*

and now, back to real life!
(ok ain't that bad. im just being dramatic!!)
