About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

A little shopping fun

So, being 13 and a half weeks pregnant (yes that extra half week counts!), I realized that it was finally time to go shopping for some maternity jeans. While I fit into my jeans ... whether or not I can breathe comfortably in them is another story altogether ;0) hee hee. This country has so much to learn from the U.S. and the U.K. when it comes to maternity clothes. We have such few options here!!! I have only found 3 stores so far that sell maternity clothes, and each of them only have one or two short racks of ugly options. Looks like I need to plan a visit to mommy in the U.S. to do some shopping - sigh! If only!!! So ... after trying on all the ugly options .... here's what I found ...
I know ... it doesn't look like a pair of jeans ... but it certainly will go with the perfect pair of jeans when I find them and fit into them :0) How cute is this little handbag hey! It's perfect for Autumn which we are practically falling into. Best of all it is proudly South African and I bought it with a birthday voucher from a dear friend. I just loved their label. (Sorry it's so fuzzy - I took about 8 pics and they all came out the same). I love the African map with the red heart. And the name is so sweet (excuse the pun) - Suga Suga. 
Who knew that maternity shopping could be so fun after all!
