Thanksgiving is just around the corner and nothing inspires me more than all those scents that invade the stores with the sweet smell of cinnamon. That fragrance brings me into a state of euphoria preparing my heart to all the celebrations during this magic time. It fills my body with feelings that only these End of Year Holidays can bring. Although, Thanksgiving is not something that we actually celebrate in Brazil, here in US I learned how to love it. This excitement flows my mind with ideas that led me to start my hunt for items to decorate my dining table.
Two months have passed and just now I feel like writing a new post about my daughter’s birthday party. My pregnancy started with zero symptoms is now full of those “pretty” moments of nausea, fatigue, dizziness. To be honest I’ve never been so sleepy and it’s even harder to keep my eyes open to do small tasks such as read a bedtime book to my little princess.
Well, as I have almost completed the first trimester I can feel a little bit more energy going through my body and finally I can have the patience and desire to write down the details about the party. First, I need to emphasize the fact that in Brazil, it is not custom to have a small party. I tried hard to do something smaller than my daughter’s first birthday party and I feel like I have accomplished my goal, at least a little bit.
