Not a Mother but….

Only an hour before we end Mother’s Day, my sweet husband gave me this…..


We are not parents, we do not have children of our own, but I am grateful that my husband does not want me to feel left out of today’s big celebration. We spent most of the day out as most Filipino families do during Sundays, we went to the nearest mall. Then in coffee and pastries our favorite coffee shop, then on a whim, I got to buy a new pair of sandals. 🙂

We also got to witness families celebrating Mother’s Day dining at restaurants, shopping and taking family pictures in the mall’s Mother’s Day celebration photo booth. Everyone was smiling and mothers carrying their big bouquet of flowers.

I miss my Mama more today. I miss her everyday. But I am celebrating Mother’s Day with my Mother’s only living sibling tomorrow with another cousin. The three of us will be bonding in our favorite beauty salon then a surprise lunch out for the family’s matriarch.

From my heart to yours, Happy Mother’s Day!



Thrilled to be a part of…


I cannot thank @anias_univers enough for thinking of me and tagging me at the call for the give-away. I am so excited to watch and learn from the videos. This is a first and something that I have longed wished for. Thank you for the blessing! Thank you to Dirty Footprints’ Connie Solera for giving us the opportunity to join and enjoy the fun.

Welcoming 2016

I apologize for getting this up two days late but nevertheless, I wanted to greet each and everyone of you a Happy and Prosperous 2016!!!



I hope everyone had a grand time celebrating Christmas and welcoming the New Year. I am claiming that his year will be an amazing year for all of us. We will all again be in the special roller coaster ride called life and celebrate each moment with warmth in our embraces, overflowing love from our hearts, peace of mind, deeper sense of self and an abundance of understanding of things we cannot control. I wish you a healthy year, may you find the time to have a good laugh everyday and a stress free and colorful art journey ahead.

Cheers to 2016!
