Lia Gets A Haircut

Our little dalaga just got a haircut! It’s her first time to have it done at a grownup salon, big girl na eh. :) The new ‘do made her look like a baby again. Thanks for behaving the whole time, Lia chikadora! And thanks to the friendly folks over at David's Salon-SM BF! :)


I have always imagined it this way. Me in my thirties, married, with maybe two kids.  I was in a rush to grow older when I was young because I was excited to have my own family. Now it’s here... they are here, and I can say that I’m at my happiest.❤️ Thank You, Jesus!šŸ™šŸ» Now if I could only freeze time, or at least make it go a bit slower, so we could enjoy the little ones more before they are no longer little.

Thought of capturing this stage of our family life with a portrait, and I super love how it turned out! Thanks so much, mommy Jess of Selah Soul Art Studio! ❤️

Becoming a #PlantMom šŸŒæ

I never thought I’d see the day I would get all giddy and heart eyes emoji over plants, but here I am.šŸƒ This came to me as a surprise because in the past, I never cared about plants. My mom is crazy over greens and growing up, I’d see her gardening in our yard, watering her plants, and regularly taking out the indoor ones so they could catch the sun. I never understood it until now.

It all started last summer when Rolly complained about the heat at our family hall, despite the big windows.☀️ We thought, how could we make this area a little cooler? Putting an AC unit is not an option because the family hall is open (the staircase leads to it). I don’t like a ceiling fan either because I’m scared it would fall off and the blades would cut into our bodies mala-Final Destination. Hehe. The idea of putting plants sparked when I went to my cousin’s house and noticed how it wasn’t as hot at her place. She said, 'madami kasi akong halaman'. Tadaaa!šŸ’š The rest is history. 

This is Marga, my Monstera Deliciosa.šŸ’š
