Where do you buy clothes and other items for your baby? It was daunting to me. Where does one get these? I was so concentrated on going through my pregnancy without any problems, I was not focused on shopping or the actual fun parts of that period of my life. It’s a pity, really!

Nah…”.  However, visiting a destination and living there are two different matters. You have a different perspective when you are visiting for a limited time ..read more
