Thank You and Good Bye, 2017!

Skyscrapers in Jakarta 2017 | Hola Darla

By the time you're reading this post, I will be halfway through my trip round Java with my husband. We started planning this trip right before finding out about the pregnancy. Thank goodness that I'm already through the first trimester at the time of the trip. It ends up being some sort of babymoon for us, but that's a story for another post.

In 2017, I didn't write as many posts that I did last year, so I decided not to put a round up of links. Instead, I'm writing the thing that I am most grateful for this year: It's this baby inside my belly.

I hope everything goes smoothly and perfectly for us in 2018. I'm both excited and anxious about what changes 2018 (and the baby) will bring to our life!

Happy New Year, friends!

Dara's Thoughts on "Star Wars: The Last Jedi"

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" Movie Review | Hola Darla

It's been a year since our hearts were collectively broken by Rogue One and then by the news of Carrie Fisher's passing away. Has your heart been healed? I thought mine had, but then I watched The Last Jedi and saw that dedication and my gut got punched. Ouch!

Some spoilers below, so beware!

We're Having a Baby!

14 Weeks Ramadhana Kecil Baby Announcement | Hola Darla

We are so excited to announce that Ramadhana Kecil is due in early June 2018!

I'm currently 14 weeks pregnant and finally back on my feet after being miserable for weeks of being nauseated 24/7. The first trimester was not fun at all, but at least the baby and I are both healthy + thriving and that's what really matters now.

Talk to you later, friends! xoxo
