Maureen Bandari


When I think about this day, I find myself smiling for no reason because it was such a beautiful day for me. When I did this I wasn’t planning on sharing on my blog so forgive the image quality because I used my phone while checking if the layout was okay and all.

Since both of us were ready to expand our family, you can imagine how elated I was when I got the two lines on my pregnancy stick. I was home alone and I was so happy jumping up and down from room to room screaming like a little girl. Of course the natural thing for me to do is break the news to him but since I had time to myself I was able to calm down and that’s when the idea of planning something cute to share the news came to my mind

I suck at keeping good news to myself so I thank God I had a trip to Malindi the following day. That would give me enough time to think through my ideas but that’s not to say that I didn’t come close to spilling the beans that same night. I got a few ideas online and added some of my own and had everything planned out in my head

I came back on a Friday and I chose the following day as the d day. I had bought everything I needed like the muffins,  baby shawl and shoes, balloons and the paper décor. That Saturday all I needed was for him to leave the house for a few minutes which was not so easy I must say. When He finally did I was doing the most with so little time until I let a sigh of relief when I finished in time.

I will never forget the moment he walked in, EVER. I was kinda hiding just watching and I have never seen a human being genuinely happy like that. It totally warmed my heart, especially when I came out of hiding. I would have shared his reaction on my blog but he is such a private person so I figured I shouldn’t post that. However, if popping Champagne, calling friends and having all of us out for dinner is anything to go by then I believe this was a successful day.

I believe in making every moment in your life beautiful and memorable, we only live once! So tell me, How did you share your good news or plan to share to your significant other? or family and friends? I’m curious to know, Do tell!

    this was so beautiful Maureen. I can only imagine the joy he felt and the look he had when he saw those cute little things in front of him. I had my test done at the hospital and I was with him so its the doctor that told him. I was so in shock but surprisingly he was so happy.
