VEGANism

Hey, so first of all, we should establish what is veganism. In a very broad sense, it's a choice not to use animal products at all (food, clothing, cosmetics etc), as much as possible. Meaning sometimes it's inevitable because for example medicine might be tested on animals.
For our family, this meant that we mostly ate vegan food. Especially me and Sarah. Peter sometimes ate non-vegan items. Me personally, also chose to try to use vegan and cruelty-free products.

REASON

So one of the main things people asked besides asking "Wait, but what are...

Moses! Moses!

 

So hiiii! It's me again! I am now reading Exodus in my quiet time. Or time with God. Or devotional time. People call that in so many different names. Also unrelated picture, because Sarah is just adorable. But i realised i needed to do another blog post because God is speaking so much into my life through the beginning of Exodus. I have read only six pages so far. (by the way, if you are new here HI! I am reading Bible one page a day). But there's so so much i want to unpack, digest and analyse. And often writing helps me do that so well.
So let me just get on with this.

Been a while - but i got something i gotta share!

 

Hi! So if you haven't been here before, heelloooo! My name is Mirjam, you could probably guess that. And this is my blog. I haven't writte over a year, because well. Who cares? I want to be unapologetic with this. I am not consistent with this blog, so mostly you can find my posts on instagram/facebook. But today, i got a bit more to say. And typing on my phone a longer message got a bit too much.

This picture was taken last night. We had a nice family walk after dinner. It was still light outside. My husband took this. And i didn't originally want to post this, because i can tell how...

Labour, delivery, new human, recovery

Labour and delivery

It was already so long ago, but it has taken me quite some time to get to my blog again. Little breaks between taking care of our daughter are spent on "me time". Also, i might be sharing details about labour not everyone wants to know. So cringe-worthy stuff you can't stand, just scroll to the next section.

Starting from around 28 weeks of pregnancy i started to have high blood pressure. They (midwife) discovered it at one of my appointments. Due to that, they asked me to monitor my BP (blood pressure) at home. At first, i didn't have blood pressure machine at home, so...

Waiting waiting

As i sit here with my 38 week pregnant belly in our new rental apartment, i realized i have forgotten to blog for quite a while. Nope, there won't be apologizing, because why? It's not an obligation. But more like a pleasure to me when i feel like it.
But lately, life has been a lot of waiting.

We moved to Estonia a bit over two months ago now. I was then 27 weeks pregnant, and well flying was uncomfortable even back then. Airport walks were tiring, patience was running low. But we made it. We made it to Estonia which was just coming out of winter. Peter was able to experience all the...
