Gianna turned “free”

Ever since Mother’s Day this year, Gianna likes to greet us. She greeted my mom and I everyday for the whole month of May practically. She would greet King too haha! And then she learned to greet him Happy Father’s Day in June. When we’d have get-togethers or attend birthday parties, she would always beContinue reading “Gianna turned “free””

40 things in 40 years

So I turned 40 last week. Here are 40 things I’ve learned so far. I am called to live a life of PURPOSE, a life to the full. Not just to merely exist, to just get by. Not just for me, myself, and I. I am a woman, a wife, a queen, a mom, aContinue reading “40 things in 40 years”

Persistence pays off!

We just came home from our family vacation in the Visayas. We went to celebrate Noelle’s 8th birthday! I chose Dumaguete because I wanted to see the Manjuyod sandbar again with my family. I’d been there with my parents before, like more than a decade ago. The sandbar wasn’t visible anymore at the time weContinue reading “Persistence pays off!”

Happy birthday Gianna (and me too?)

Facebook reminded me this week of something I said two years ago. Actually, King was the first one to remind me. He wished me a happy birthday on Gianna’s birthday, and said he remembers everything. I just smiled. I honestly did not think of it. But as I was watching a show the other day,Continue reading “Happy birthday Gianna (and me too?)”

Gianna is 2!

Gianna is such a character! If you stick around long enough and observe her, you’ll see. The looks she gives, her cheeky smile, her dance moves, her words, singing and her actions. She turned 2 today. Sigh. Time flies so fast. Because she’s the last baby, I wish she’d never grow up. Everybody tells meContinue reading “Gianna is 2!”

Danae is 8!

One time during lunch, Danae was saying something about soda. Danae: (remembering that her Wowa drinks Coke zero a lot) Wowa should stop drinking soda. Me: Yeah. Danae: Wowa, you know what you should do? You should fast drinking soda and smoking. When it’s fasting (referring to our annual fast in church), you fast that.Continue reading “Danae is 8!”

My Bohol Birthday Bash

I didn’t have many birthday parties as a child and I think from my teenage years to young adulthood, I wanted to be surrounded by people during my birthday. I would have parties that lasted till the next morning because I didn’t want anyone to leave. It made me feel loved and more secure havingContinue reading “My Bohol Birthday Bash”
