Big News Chit Chat

Hiya!

I'm counting down to the big move! It's been a stressful and overwhelming last two weeks and even though I have been a little anxious regarding the move, the recent stress has been almost maddening and I'm ready to just go and sleep for one week!

Anyways I was reminded to answer a few questions around our decision and I filmed a video over the weekend just for you!


I hope I answered the questions well. I do plan on having a mini hangout on March 6th, which is on Sunday. Send an email if you're interested in coming :)

Follow me on Snapchat this week as I say my final goodbyes across Nigeria and I finally get to visit Calabar. My handle is @BerryDakara

  5. I love you Berry. It's amazing how when we stop pushing against something, AMAZING things happen. I've prayed for you and Cakes and I hope wonderful blessings happen for you guys in this year of transition. My husband and I have had these same types of experiences last year and now, and every time we "let go and let God" it has been for our good. Warm hugs! :)

  7. Awwww, Berry! *Big Hug*

    I know it isn't easy. I once had to pack up my life and move continents too and I know it's not easy. From reading your blog I can tell you are a strong, fierce woman and you'll be okay.

    We will always wish you and cakes the best! It may seem overwhelming at first, but it's for the best.

    We'll miss your Naija posts but we'll still be here!

    Love you lots too!

    Xoxo

    1. I did, but was only there for 2 days, and traveling in between. I didn't plan it too well or I would have had a mini hangout.

  13. Berry I cried! Not wailing yea, but I had tears.
    It's tough to just up and move but God will be with you and your husband.
    God is love and I know you both love each other. So God is with you both. He will never fail you.
    God bless your endeavours.

  20. Aww dear,been silently following you for a while. And just like you will be relocating to Canada with hubby.The actual plan is same as yours getting pregnant and going to have the babies over there,but still waiting for the BFP. Wether it comes or not September is fixed. Hopefully God will do a miracle before then. The anxiety of leaving certainty for uncertainty is so real, and I worry a lot too. God is on the throne anyways. He will guide both of you and you shall conquer . Ehugs

    1. Ah! You're my moving twin... kinda. I know God is really trying to tell me not to worry, but it can be hard. However, in the past week, it's been messages about not living in fear, having faith, and trusting Him over and over again. We'll be fine.

  21. Oh wow! This post in particular was pretty emotional, as you started crying, tears rolled down my eyes and I knew I had to leave a comment. Cheers to new beginnings! (even though your environment isn't new to you, but the fact you are moving back with your husband makes it a new and different phase for you). I pray that the lines will fall for you and your family in pleasant places and it'll be great news, greater achievements in Jesus Name, Amen!
