This is how our Saturdays looked like.

Hills on the left, ocean on the right, sea breeze, the sky and the clouds, and flock of doves and other birds flying around the port.

As much as we enjoy this scenery, I also wished that one day we won't be waiting for hubby to come home on weekends just to be with us, but to finally be with him every day.

Hopefully, someday, soon...

My One Word for This Year

It's another year and another set of goals to look forward to.

I'm not good with resolutions so I decided to have one word to focus on and live by for this year. This is the first time that I'm going to do it and I know it'll be worth a shot.

The last few weeks of 2016 was pretty rough for my family, especially for my daughter CL. I choose this word for this year to remind my self to be optimistic - that no matter what, everything's going to be okay.


First off, is for me to believe in the Lord's plans for me, for us, and for my family.

Believe in myself, my talent, and my skills.

Believe in what my capabilities can do and how far I will go with it.

Believe in my goals and my plans, and on how to achieve it.

Believing that I would be able to conquer whatever my heart desires.

Believe in healing - for my daughter and for the family.

Believe in optimism.

And as I believe in my one word for this year, I wish us all a bright and cheerful 2017!

A Glimpse of My 2016

CL transferred to a different school. It's a bit far  from home but I like the school better than the first one. Although, her first few weeks were a bit rough, with all the bullying and stuff, everything is smooth and well now especially with her new classmates. And along with it, I became more devoted on my pre-schooler. I really enjoyed preparing her school stuff everyday and discovered her learning capabilities.

CL's learning the Visayan dialect now and I'm really amazed that she's learning fast. She's even more adept than her dad. Lol!

CL had an accident that injured her right arm. I'll right about it more in the next few days. She also lost her two bottom front teeth and finally welcomed her first pair of permanent teeth.

I took a set back on making fabric flowers and focused more on practicing my calligraphy skills. I tried different writing medium and discovered I'm more in love with dip pens and watercolors.

Me, my daughter, and especially by husband has finally adjusted our life in this small island of Bohol.
