Being a Mom is my life long dream.
Now that it’s so close to fulfillment, I still couldn’t consider myself to be 100% qualified for the job. I just haven’t figured it out yet. Was there anyone ever prepared for this?

Little did I know that a famous architect’s dictum I followed when I was young now speaks to my dialogues to our dear Father.
“It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth.
Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants,
with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”
We’ll be handed with our own tiny seed very soon. We’re not completely sure if our garden is ready, but we are always, always asking for guidance to enable us to become gardeners worthy of a fruitful tree.

I never considered myself as a volunteer-type, never ever comfortable to be the first person to raise my hand when someone asks for help, unless personally approached. I’d always take time to test the waters before jumping in.
This 2018 will be very different.
Hot or cold, stepping back is not an option.
You Only Live Once
The famous mantra most of the young generation believe in is true. Best moments shared with family, friends, and significant people only comes in a spark of time. Your memory catches some specks only your physical mind can contain.
Nothing more, nothing less, let them see whom they loved.
As I begin to prepare the special day of my life, I was luckily, a part of an organizing committee for a national convention for professionals. It was obvious that I worked with the pros and one of which I acknowledge as my events mentor. He was behind a lot of successful massive gatherings, not to mention he is an Architect too. That is why I look up to his skills and great passion in what he does. So, the first question I heard from him was, “What is your wedding theme?” oh yes, haven’t thought of that yet. My mind played a quick flashback about my Dreamy Childhood Wedding… Continue reading “Leave A Mark”
Included in our budget was just the wedding itself. We never looked forward for a honeymoon vacation, until the best surprise arrived. Here’s that story. There were countless blessings that came as well, which made our vacation even better. And so, the excitement went from the wedding day until the day of our flight!
You’ll be snatched for more than a minute today.
I am a home buddy because of several reasons, one of the most obvious is that I have strict parents. Period. And so, I just let those opportunities to “see the world” pass. Something changed me, just weeks ago, I realized the value of waiting and reminded me about the famous saying…
“Good things come to those who wait.”
But what came was way better…
Planning for a wedding is never easy.
Just keep this in mind, you have one shot to make that dream come to life so be prepared and enjoy the journey.
Ral and I got engaged last March 1, 2015. It was a very simple engagement, very Ral. After that blissful moment we planned to get married after a year, March of 2016. At the back of my head, I can still wee around, I have plenty of time. Yet something came up, we need to reschedule the wedding… (panic level 3) …earlier, the same year (panic level 8.5).
The wedding was rescheduled December 12, 2015, yes 2015, and we rescheduled it last April, so yes only 8 months to prepare. I have been reading wedding blogs and found out that it usually takes a year or more to prepare the huge event of your life. You can only imagine how worried we were, mostly I was.
Do not panic!!!
Those 8 months were enough, I even thought it was a precise schedule.
God is faithful to those who trust Him. Have faith.
And so as a bride, I made a list of what I have experienced, which I thought you would too. Remember to worry less and enjoy more, keep a happy heart. I hope these would help.
