I have been away from blogging for a while and that is because I was expecting my second baby. It was a tough pregnancy and I was bed ridden for a long time. However, finally my little precious baby came out crying and is now 3 ½ months old. Time flies and when I look back my entire pregnancy was an experience. The baby and I had to be saved yet the baby needed time in the womb. My older daughter was going through emotional crisis as well because she was suddenly left on her own. In the midst of all this crisis my mom came as a savior and took control of the entire situation. We sailed throughout 2018 successfully. I achieved my healthy and happy family.
Now, we are in 2019 and I am beginning this year on a happy note with my family near me. Since I am trying to get back to being normal and fighting sleepless nights I am slightly thrown out of schedule. However, I came to realize that it’s the flu season and this year it arrived late. Therefore, I came up with this Immune Boosting Persimmon Ginger Smoothie.
