Hello, my name is Junette, but friends call me Van.

Hi, I am Van and this is my daughter Mimi I am a mother, BSN holder, traveller, cook, foodie, baker, and an untrained photographer. Mimi is a sweet loving, almost 4 year old little lady who loves to sing, dance, and make a mess all around. We are currently living in the Philippines. This blog shares all the things we love to you.

I started to blog because one day when I get old and wrinkly I will to be able to read what I wrote on my blogs and see my videos. I want to read about my journey through life and how I made it through ups and downs and situations where I thought it were never fixable. 

So stay tune to the life of a single mom and a sidekick baby and see how they tackle what the world throws at them while eating meat on the side and living the eco-friendly way

I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media!
