You Are My Sunshine

Sharing another layout from the scrapbook I made for my brother. Love it when the paper looks so pretty and  you only need to add a bit of embellishment. Makes it so easy and fast to do the page.

Now,  this two lovebird has this sweet little girl. That piercing look, hah... totally my brother's look.

Earlier this week, they were celebrating Shakira 1 month old by doing the Chinese tradition blessing ceremony. Basically family member and close friends come together and gives the baby blessings so may she or he have a blessed life. And this day also mark the 1st day that the baby go outside the house with grandma taking her for a walk. 

I so love this picture. We have picture just like this when we were babies with our own grandma. And I love the fact that my mom went with the traditional, old school style umbrella for this event. You don't see this often nowadays. And somehow as I see how our family branched out and scattered all over the world, I value our heritage and appreciate it more than ever.

And, yep, our family is in love with this baby girl. Just like the title on my layout, she is our sunshine. :)

To my sweet niece, Shakira, I wish that your life always filled with sunshine and when there's rainy or cloudy days, I hope you remember that the sun will always come back and rise. And may you bring sunshine to those around you.
