And just like that, February has past! Whew! Times flies so fast that I hardly was able to catch up with the turn of events. February is my and the blog's birthday month. Can you believe it? Petite Momma's World has turned 2 years! Wow. And I'm glad that despite my LOA in this blog, there are still people reading it. Thank you! You have no idea how giddy I get whenever someone glances (moreso if you read!) my little corner in the cyberworld.
I haven't been writing much lately because of the many hats I wear. I have a number of drafts still on my phone waiting to be finished and published. The Baby Z turned 7 months and has been very mobile for weeks now. She crawls fast, stands, and cruises around the house. Once I turn my back on her, you'd be sure she'll be crawling under the sofa, walking towards the TV, pulling wires, sticking her hands in the fan, or chewing on non-food items. She's a lot to handle. I can't leave her in her crib 'cause she'd be yelling (and crying) after 5 seconds of not seeing me in the room. The only time I get to do chores and do some work is once the kids are in bed in the evening. During her naps in the morning and afternoon, I cook or I take a bath. So, there. I really need help in the house. And sorry, it took a long time for me to write a blog anniversary post.
If you've been following me on Facebook and/or Instagram, you may have had the chance to read the latest projects that I have been busy with - one of which is the realization of my dream and one word for 2016 - be a significant person. I promise to write about my one word soon.
Earlier this year, we formed Zoelle, an enterprise that sells bags that helps shape to the future.
We were raised by parents who reminded us a few dozen times that the only treasure they could leave with us is our education. Growing up, I made sure it is one of my top priorities so I can give back to my family and country who helped me study college (and graduate school) in UP.
For every product you purchase at Zoelle, we will donate a set of school supplies to students from remote areas in the provinces. We believe that each and everyone of us has the ability to shape our country's future through a collective effort of raising educated and patriotic citizens. By helping the less fortunate in their education, we are paving a path to a brighter future.
We are starting small but we envision to help more by providing scholarships a few years from now. I am really praying for it to materialize! Please pray with us that this project will grow so we can bless more kids.
The first beneficiaries of Zoelle will be the primary students of a Mangyan community in Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro through the help of Lapis at Papel Project, a "humble friendship club that aims to share love". Lapis at Papel Project was conceptualized and started by Liz Macuja-Medrana about 7 years ago. Liz was a scholar from highschool to college and has always wanted to give back to the community. The group grew through the years and now with her husband, Marvin, they are gifting school supplies to Mangyan communities twice a year. Their future plans include putting up a library in the communities they are helping.
