This week is all about family! Thank you Lord for people you have chosen to surround me, people who will love me unconditionally, and people to give back love to.

Ariel celebrated his birthday on January 28th. We celebrated by having a simple family lunch at Balinsasayaw. I am happy that Ariel’s family seamlessly blended with mine. We had a nice time and enjoyed the good food. Thankful for another year that I get to spend with my hubby. Thankful for God’s continued faithfulness in his life.

Ariel and I had a wonderful lunch date last Sunday. Then, we watched Mamma Mia at the CCP. It was a fun Sunday date. Thankful for the opportunity to enjoy these luxuries once in a while.

Mom celebrated her birthday on February 2nd. My brother drove to Cavite to pick up my parents and we had dinner in Sentro at Greenbelt 2. It was great to celebrate with my mom on her actual birthday. Thankful that the Lord has continued to grant her physical strength. More importantly, I am thankful for her spiritual strength. Her grace and beauty just radiates from within – something only a strong relationship with God can do.

Today, Ariel and I together with my parents, brother and sister-in-law packed our bags and headed north to spend a long weekend in Baguio City. I booked our company vacation house for 3 nights. I am thankful for time with the family. I am thankful for the free accommodation. I am thankful for moments of bonding, sharing, resting and praying.

Have a great weekend!
