I'm so so excited for our first year anniversary! Me and my husband our going on a road trip in few days! We're thinking of Cape Cod and other places. I've been preparing all the stuff I wanted to bring with us! I wanted it to look really special. Well you know, Mr. DIY needs to hop in. So today I got so inspired so I arranged these cute goodies! My friend lend these pink flowers to me and I used the green leafs and stems from a different flower arrangement.

I cannot believe it's been a year. The hurricane sandy was a huge trial for us but God has been so good and didn't left us alone but instead He blessed us more and used many people to bless us! YES we lost lots of our wedding memories, goodies, gifts and such but I have them all in my heart, Not because they're materials but I have them inside my heart because of the people who put their budget just give us weddings gifts. For me and my husband... God is always first. Our relationship with God is more important and we value it everyday and treasure it in our hearts. I'm so thankful I have an amazing husband and everyday I confess that I'm so bless to have him. Of course he's not a perfect husband but to me... God brought him in my life perfectly.

What made our home more beautiful is each other. I get so excited everyday when he gets home. I make him feel I haven't seen him in years. That's how much I value our day. To my dear husband, thank you for always taking care of me and thank you for loving me and accepting my floss and all. I love you with all of my heart and I pray that God will continue to interfere in your life. <3 nbsp="" p="">

I ended my afternoon with a special treat. Cold chocolate with whipped cream. So good! Have a blessed day to all!

Hello readers, bloggers.... I woke up this morning and had an amazing breakfast. I love this portuguese custard tarts. It's so addicting. Anyway......

I started this blogging monday (sometimes i call it lazy monday) tuesday & wednesday since last year but I kind of messed up the purpose of the titles. These are supposed to be my plans for my readers to let them know about my blog recipes. Basically Monday is supposed to be more on my "thoughts of the day" and "what is like when it's monday" Then tuesday is more on what I do or what I did and special occasions. Somehow I mislead my viewers. In my head I thought I was doing it correctly. That's what happens when I'm not in my organizing world. No wonder why Christine Meintjes taught me how to get organize first. (me laughing out loud.) that's my biggest problem and I'm still working on it. But so far, I love how my external hard drive look like. Christine system helped me to get organize. Every folders have separate files as well. It's so much easier to find my pictures! I hope this will also give you ideas how to organize your files.

Now that I'm done explaining how i messed up (little laugh)... I wanted to share to you my husband's brother's visit yesterday! It was so much fun seeing this guy again! He was my husband's best man last year at our wedding! Oh speaking of our wedding... few more days and it will be our first year's anniversary! I'm super excited! (giggling) Yesterday we went out to have lunch together! I love seeing my husband happy being with his brothers and his sister ( another future bride of the year!) Their laughs and their silliness made them go back to their old days.

She asked me " Are you taking pictures of me?" and i replied "Yes"

Then she smiled. hahaha 

Jon lives in Portland, Oregon. This guy is such a great artist. He makes/designs hand made vase, cups including this one. This was his wedding gift for us. This is supposed to be for beers but I preferred to just display it as a decoration in my house.

I ordered/treated myself an Thai Iced tea, Basil Rice, Tamyun soup and Salmon Roll! So good! 

caught my husband contacting/dialing. Oh he wasn't aware until I started laughing. Oh my goodness! He needs a real cure for this one. (Crying out loud)

Abby and her fiance Raphael!

The beautiful future bride Abby!

After lunch, the rain stopped and Jon asked to take pictures outside! Oh how i love to see them laughing and smiling. I'm just really glad they had a blast with their brother Jon.

Their happy dance! 

I'm also glad to see Evan smiling!

Let me introduce to you again these beautiful people.
Nathan (with the blue sweater) Jon (black t-shirt) Abby (their only sister) and Evan (purple sweater)
This guy is just a happy guy and so silly! 

How I also love every time my husband opens the car door for me <3 p="">

Then we went to visit their uncle and spent time with them. 

After hanging out with their uncle, we dropped off Jon to pick up his luggage. Then we headed to the airpot.

The first day he visited us, He told us about the boots he sported from the mighty thrift store! This vintage leather cow boy boots is awesome! He used it for the wedding. Not our wedding but his friend's wedding.

Then it was time to say goodbye. These two are sweet to each other. I wish I had a brother too :( I love how he reminded my husband to take care of their younger brother. What a sweet brother. My husband is their older brother.

Their laugh continued. To Jon! Thanks for visiting us! HOPE YOU'LL VISIT US AGAIN!

Olevia Maternity session

How I love that tuesday. The weather was amazing! Olevia is now 8 months pregnant. The first I've met her was at my friend's wedding. She came to me and asked my info with her sweet voice. She told me she's very shy in front of the cam'ra. The funny part was, she didn't let her husband look at her while taking pictures! Oh she did a great job following all the instructions and posing. She was easy to get along with.

This couple looks great together! And they're super sweet! 

I was giggling when I was taking picture of these little socks! So cute!


It was really beautiful outside! I love even the shadows. I think I'm the only photographer that is not afraid of sunlight shadows :)

This was the fun part of our session! I was laughing with them especially her husband. He was shaking his head the whole time!
