On being thankful

image

We don’t have perfect lives but we have the power to make them close to perfection. Sunsets, beaches, vacation, great friends and unforgettable stories, we can photograph them, keep them locked in our memories and cherish them in our hearts forever. Being ‘thankful’ is always the key… Have you thanked God today? I just did 🙂

Tita! Where is the sunblock?

The weather yesterday was so weird, it had a twist of sun, wind and rain showers. Still, that didn’t stop my mom from visiting one of her friends. Caitlyn and I tagged along since it was a Sunday and I know there’s a swimming pool. Yes! Water water water!

Since I cancelled my Caramoan trip last July and Cebu trip this past September for some personal reason, I needed a quick and free getaway!

Nature tripping and lots of green!

A place for the orchids, they are just starting so no flowers yet.

My Tita Tek made this yummy treat! One of the best Filipino delicacies!

Caitlyn, my daughter, lol! Jokin’ she’s my niece but almost everyone says she looks like me. Maybe because I named her and took care of her most of the time.

Caitlyn: Tita Joy, where is the sunblock? We can’t swim!

Tita Joy: Yes we can, let me just kiss you and it will protect you from the sun! (I love how kids accept all explanations then ask again, haha!)

When swimming, always start with “bubbles”.

I spent 3/4 of the time laughing, we own the pool! How cool was that?

While floating Caitlyn said, “Tita don’t die yet!” I almost drowned due to excessive laughing. 🙂

Chillin’

Sleeping

Picture taking!

She’s so adorable!

My Tito’s place at Antipolo Rizal

This one caught my eye from afar.

Plastic cup on our heads.

I asked her to form a heart but her hands are chubby. 🙂

Look at that! Roof of stars!

Time to go now! Thank goodness the sun was not so hot, no sunblock? Who cares?
