Rocco Turns One

Today, 13th of October 2019, our little man turns ONE! Happy first birthday, Rocco! šŸŽ‚

The past twelve months with you as part of our family has been nothing short of lovely. I didn’t realize how much more love our hearts could give until you came.šŸ’™ I love being your mommy, my sweet little boy. The way you look at me when you nurse, the way you cling to my arms, and the way you cry and call for me always make my heart melt, my love. Is this the mom and son bond I often hear about? Perhaps. Ooh how I adore you, my Pietro Joaquin.šŸ˜

10 Years a Belo Baby

It’s October 7. And as I started my workday this morning, I realized I have reached a milestone --- I’ve been working at ISCI for ten years! My first day here was on October 5, 2009, and here I am still, a decade after.šŸ’–
Taken in 2013
I was only 24 then, young, NOT wild, and free. šŸ˜Š I chanced upon the job opportunity online, and I thought I could give it a try since I wanted a faster paced working environment at that time. I was hired, and the rest is history. Now I’m 34. This company has seen me growing up and getting old. This was where I got engaged, tied the knot, became a mommy for the first time, then a second time.❤️ I actually didn’t plan on staying this long, but I have stayed this long. As I am typing right now, I am asking myself why. Bakit nga ba? I don’t know what my reason is, but all I can say is I am happy, and I feel blessed being here. I am around people I love working with, and I am being mentored by the best bosses one could have. My work still excites me, and I still get fulfillment from the little successes that happen daily.  Best of all, I get to live the life I love.  That is, I am able to spend early mornings and early evenings with my family, my hubby and two little kids, without the baggage of work stresses on my back. Siguro yun talaga ang reason. Yes, maybe that’s it! šŸ’”

I admit, there are days when I’d also wonder, what would life be like if I moved? I’ve been hearing stories that the pasture is greener and thicker in other places. True, true. But I also read somewhere that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. The grass is greener where you water it. And I water mine every day.šŸŒ± While I am here, I am keeping my watering can close. 

Happy ISCI anniversary to me! šŸŽ‚
