Back to the #cheattatelhighlights2018 . I'm a fan of TV series. But 2018 was too busy and I haven't had time for watching movies and TV shows as much as I'd like to. So I can mark only three new series I liked: "Dark" by Netflix, "Patrick Melrose" by Showtime & Sky Atlantic and "This is us" by NBC. This note's gonna be about the last one - @nbcthisisus.
It's not actually new, the first episode was released in 2016, but for me this October was the perfect moment to start watching it. When everything in your life goes slightly crazy, trust me, you need something like "This is us". It's a very simple family story, in some way you can even call it a soap opera. But if so, it's probably the best soap opera I've watched so far. And I suppose the key is honesty. When something sad should happen to its characters, it happen, there aren't any "deus ex machina" things. But if the problem can be solved, they do it; authors don't invent unexpected obstacles just to make the story longer.
And there's one more thing: you have to be a heartless person not to fell in love with Pearsons. They're different, they're not perfect, but they do what not so many people do: they always try to do their best and they're ready to admit their mistakes and fails. I don't believe there's a human who can't relate to at least one of the characters.
The story gives you quite obvious answers, it's all about love and tolerance, patience and hardworking, but sometimes it's all we really need.
So much awe for the NEW “thing” in our house. How do you make a one year old, NOT remove all the ornaments!? My tree might be decorated on one half by the end of the season- can you guess which one 🤣? Also, I’ve never been a fake tree girl, but this year I had to improvise because my hubby & I are sooooo busy...the girls & I bought one (which eliminated the hubbies job of cutting one). I also learned tonight that toys are overrated. Everyone is getting boxes for Christmas...BIG empty ones 😂!!
Totally crushing on my #foreverweddingdate looking back on pics from our friend's beautiful wedding 🌲♥️ So crazy how far we are from then...house, pup, and a whole new life full of new adventures 🙌 So much more confidence in both of us now too 🤗 I think that's my favorite change we've made in our lives 🙏
I have closed my shop a few weeks ago.
I have been praying about the future of @madrehandmade.
I am not sure if I will continue with our shop as it was.
I am so grateful for the dear people I have met, the support and opportunities.
Thank you friends. 💓
In the meantime, I will be sharing a little about life, family, God, homemaking.
🎅 Santa came a bit early to our office today. Surprisingly enough, he looked a lot like a cheerful UPS driver. He dropped off an Apple HomePod which after one afternoon has been a great addition to our office. Merry Christmas everyone! 🎄🎁
THIS IS US.
Our marriage life = berjuang bersama untuk meraih mimpi kita berdua, begadang bersama menyelesaikan pekerjaan, sharing bersama tentang kisah hari ini, tertawa bersama terutama kalau ada hal-hal aneh, dan yang paling seru adalah liburan bersama karena kami sangat cinta travelling. .
He is the strongest sleep fighting baby I know. In his first 8 months of life, he's collected so many nicknames:Snuggle Bear, Baby Love, Snuggie, Boo'ks, Bookie Him, Boo'Him 😘 We love him so very much, and we know he loves us. Such a blessing he's been. He's weaning off his pacifier, so far 5 days sucker free. Has his first tooth coming in. He's scoot crawling his way around. He only says Dadda Lol.
He's a BIG foodie and loves to eat what you're eating. He really likes music and will try to bounce to whatever tune he hears. He likes to pat/or hit things or people. ☺ He still loves Elmo ❤ and the rest of his Sesame Street friends. Baby Sam is getting smarter, stronger, and kinder right before our eyes. His shirt says #NoNaps#HowWeFamily#ThisIsUs

We often focus on things that are bananas, depressing, unjust, scary, or some unholy combination of them. But we—each one of us—can make monumental changes to the world around us. We can be rogue heroes, vigilante forest builders, radical lovers, mobilizers of hope. One man can help the poorest regrow a forest: you can do something amazing too. #beamazing#youaretheanswer#radicalkindness#letsdothis#maketheworldabetterplace#thisisus
