Friendly I miss you so much!!! This is still my favorite highschool picture ever!!!!! It really captures the craziness and fun we had then...and no friendly you were not an outcast then.

A stitch in time...


We're taking the wedding preps baby step at a time. We started out by attending the Discovery Weekend which was truly the best decision we've made. The order of events is actually perfect except for the lack of proposal (repeat after me Olivia "I must get over it...I must get over it...I must get over it"), I think proposals in any form from Ruy are just not meant to be, I think I can live with that at least I'm sure I'll try to.

I must admit that I was a bit panicked when I checked out W@W and saw that most of the Dec. 2006 brides had already started their preps...while I on the other hand was still floating on a sea of maybe-s! So reserving the church last Sunday was really a big deal for me...we're on a roll now...I hope.



Last Sunday, a bunch of us went to Tagaytay to scout for possible venues. Calaruega church seemed even more beautiful now than it did before. Maybe I'm biased, I now feel a sense of ownership as we have finally booked and paid for the church. Now it's MY church...MINE MINE MINE.

Hey I might be getting married but I'm still allowed to be a brat every once in a while. ;p




I can't wait to form more memories with Ruy.

I Miss Boracay


It has been about 4 months since we last went to Boracay. I miss Boracay so much...I wish Ruy and I can go back there, but this time without any issues..
