11/10/2015

It`s exactly ย 7:10 p.m …

Well after thinking seriously of how i need to start writing this post, i just realized that a good ten…mmmmh actually twelve minutes had just gone by without me realizing! I`m telling you, time is moving so fast! I just can`t comprehend.. Who else is on the same page with me and needs a day between Saturday and Sunday?

You have been nothing but a blessing to us and i can`t thank God enough for your life. It has been an honor being your mom and i`m sure Daddy feels ย the same way as i do. If you ever get to read this when you grow up, i want you to know that we LOVE YOU so much Son!

10 Random Facts About Me_09

Ok.. That was a little bit emotional. Now let`s get back to business, shall we?

I have been wanting to do this kind of Post for the longest time. But for some reason, i kept pushing it back. I suppose it`s time for a bit of refresher, right??

I love this kind of posts because they are somehow personal and not the ,,everyday kind of posts” seen on blogs. The best part about it, is that you get to know the person behind the blog more better! So…… I`m hoping that you my beautiful readers will enjoy reading this little facts about me and without further do, Let the show begin!

  • My full names are Mildred Risper Atieno. 3/4 of the people here cannot not pronounce it well, let alone spell it correctly :(… Hence why i prefer being called Milly. It`s short, easy to pronounce and gets the job done ๐Ÿ™‚
  • I am the only girl in my family. I have three brothers and one of them is my TWIN. Yesssssss!! As much as people don`t believe it, trust you me, i am a twin. We are fraternal twins though and very different from each other. He is the complete opposite of me.. You need to see it to believe it!

10 Random Facts About Me_04

  • I come from Kenya. I have lived in Nairobi for most of my life but i currently live with my main squeeze in Germany…. Bremen to be precise!
  • I am married to a Ghanian.. A good proof that LOVE knows no boundaries, color or nationality :). The 25th of September marked our 8th Year anniversary :)… I couldn`t have asked God for a better Partner to share this crazy thing called LIFE together!.. Trust me, we have had our good and bad times but with the presence of God in our marriage, we made it work together. Marriage is not a bed of roses… It`s a work in progress. It does take more than Love to get married. I am planning to make a post on this Topic one day!
  • And from this beautiful union God granted us a son named Robin Edem Akam…. ย This boy is my HEART…. Literally my EVERYTHING ๐Ÿ™‚

10 Random Facts About Me_07

  • I always wanted to be an Air hostess. I was and to be quite honest still is obsessed with how beautiful and chic they look in their uniforms! The thought of visiting different countries was something that always fascinated me. But i had to let go of this dream of mine once i decided to have a family.. It`s called setting my priorities right!
  • I discovered late last year that i suffer from an Iron deficiency. After tons of research i finally understood why i always had cold hands and feet, was constantly having a cold that would never go away and why i have very fine hair which is prone to breakage and shedding! Hence why i decided to go natural. Atleast with my natural hair i can achieve the volume i want without trying too much ๐Ÿ™‚ I am currently on Iron tablets and i try as much as possible to eat foods which have high level of Iron supply…. I guess now it`s much clear why i`m not an Autumn/Winter kind of person… Can we just use the Hashtag #KnowlegdeisPower# guyz??

10 Random Facts About Me_08

  • I am an Introvert. I love my own space. I love doing my things in my own creative space without so much crowd. That`s the only way i get most of my stuff done well and i mean in the correct order. I really enjoy staying indoors unless i`m out shopping (Blogger life)… Apart from that, my house is the only place i feel comfortable in ๐Ÿ™‚ Hence the reason why i`m obesessed with interior decoration. I actually make sure that i`m content with how my house looks like. There is nothing worth coming home to as a well organized and cosy home! Nothings beats that in my books…
  • I have a small circle…. A very small one of that matter that it sounds scary! But i`m ok with it. Now that i have grown much older and mature, i ย have realized how much quality is more important than quantity! I do sorround myself with postive people who generate positive energy…. I mean life is too short to be negative, right?

10 Random Facts About Me_11

  • last but not least……. I am scared, i mean extremely SCARED of snakes! The thought of seeing one just makes me numb! I don`t know how i would ever react if i saw one live (Hides Face)… I think i would have an instant heart attack… Even writing this makes my heart beat so quickly, Jeezzzzzzzz…….

Well it`s exactly 9:30 pm and i finally managed to come to the end of this Post…

Before i leave, i would like to say thank you. Thank you so much for reading my Blog whoever and wherever you are! Whether you comment or just a silent reader, everyone is so supportive and kind ๐Ÿ™‚ Words can`t express how grateful i am…

So tell me something about yourself ๐Ÿ™‚ ย A random fact… Anything!! Seriously, i`d love to know!!!!!

Wishing yร ll a lovely Monday…

Love

Milly ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Milly..:) Soo glad I came about your blog; and yesssss; I’ll be a faithful follower on Instagram. “Beautiful” one word! yes you are simply gorgeous and even tho I haven’t read all your blogs and seen all your pictures; (which I will) I love your style. A little about me.
    1) Am an introvert: I enjoy my own company or with a close friend or 2 and would care less on large crowds. Am naturally reserved but will talk about life for hours once I have observed and enjoyed listening quietly.
    2) I also wanted to be an air hostess growing up FF~ a nurse now and loving it; I still admire them but don’t think it would be my calling to join that route soon.
    3) And…. I also have Iron deficiency as well as Vitamin D.. Currently on prescribed supplements which seem to help. Winter is definitely not my season as it’s a torture to my body. I mostly get headaches “thank God for Aleve” and cold feet is just a norm to me.
    4) I love love loove African and Gospel music… Well music at large per say.
    5)I have 3 siblings, the firstborn in our family, and was born and raised in Kenya until my early teens.
    I think I’ll leave it at 5 for now… Looking forward to reading more of your blogs.

    Cheers…oxox.

    Thanks for sharing your random facts Hun, always feels good to connect with the author behind the blog…….after all we are human. Am just from watching the Video and fact 4 explains why you two are so adorable…….may you live to celebrate more anniversaries dear……life is crazy but Love does make it easier.

    Happy belated birthday to your Son, reminds me of my kid sister….she is 11 now and it has been amazing watching her grow….but now she is so stubborn, makes me miss the cute, little, chubby girl who always listened to me…..they grow up way toooooo fast.

    I’m with you on the last fact too…….I am extremely scared of snakes.
