When Raina wakes up one night with an upset tummy, she just assumes it's a stomach bug as her mom is also showing the same symptoms.

Happy New Year!



I hope you all have a wonderful, happy and safe 2013! 2012 has been a mixed year for me - it has been a year of firsts and changes for me but there have been plenty of sad moments too. I hope 2013 has no frown moments and only great times. Plus, I hope to read more. :)

I can't wait to resume blogging after enjoying a nice long holiday!
