Who Am I?
Hello & Welcome! My name is Su. I am a mother documenting life. This is a space where I share my emotions in making memories with my beautiful children, hence – E&E was born – Ethan (born 2011) and Evelyn (born 2014).
Why do I blog?
In 2014, I felt the hardship, when we moved out of London, UK, I really do felt the hardship of being a little rather alone. Finding the balance of an extrovert at times and an introvert toddler at some point of other time, plus a newborn can be just a little too overwhelming to cope. I had no one to talk to. Making new friends was hard for both myself and Ethan. We both misses our London friends. Blogging was my way of an outlet. I want my Blog to be a platform of connection in all aspects of our lives to remind ourselves that we still and always have each other no matter what, whilst we are all learning to stride to settle down in our new beginning.
I started blogging in July 2015. I have been meaning and wanting to blog for ages as I have read so many wonderful stories out there that inspires me to wanting to write my own experiences too.
I am a stay at home mum even though from time to time I do missed being in an office 9-5 job. All the hussle and bussle. Those telephone ringing in my ears. It was rather exciting to say the least. But those days are over, as I feel that my true calling is to be with my kids. I love being able to have fun and do creative projects with them.
What blogging gave me?
Yes, I found virtual friends to which we meet up and we have become good friends. I like that we can share each other stories of our high and our low of parenthood. We are not perfect and because of this we connect.

Blogging has change my world that started as originally an online diary but quickly transformed. The blogging community has opened my eyes to another World out there. It gave back my confidence to be creative in my own way, to become more independent, and giving opportunities for my kids to experience many different things that I can not imagine.
