Birthdays are a huge deal in our family, and to be honest, this year’s birth month has not failed me yet as far as awesomeness goes. The first of the month found us in the gorgeous Las Casas in Bataan, and day two was family-fun-filled too. Yesterday, I received a box of happiness from Boracay, courtesy of my brother’s girlfriend – Six calamansi muffins from Real Coffee, something I’d been craving for, for a while now. Today, one of my favorite restaurants, Yabu, sent me an early present – a gift certificate for a free katsu set that I can claim any time within February. Amazeballs.

Happy Birthday, Mother Dear!

It’s my mom’s birthday today!

To celebrate, I’d like to share this post I wrote last year for World Moms Blog, which talked about our household with two mothers. Here’s a quote from that post:

I can’t say enough how extremely blessed I am to have a mother who is young enough, strong enough and more than willing to take care of my kid in my absence. I never have to worry about him not being okay because he is in the hands of the same woman who raised me.

To mommy, happy birthday and thank you for everything. I literally would not be here without you. I love you, and you know it!

Five Things I Love About Being Married to MrC

Forgive the cheese. It’s my husbandry’s birthday today, and I just thought I’d post the list of things that I appreciate most about having him as a husband. In case you didn’t know, he and I have been together since high school. Yup, that long. This is the 14th year that we are celebrating his together, and to be perfectly honest, I’ve run out of gift ideas hahaha. This post is a sort-of gift to MrC. Appreciation in the form of words.

So here are the five things I love about being married to MrC.

1. He makes me coffee every morning. 

I am well aware that morning coffee is usually the wife’s responsibility, but since MrC is very particular about his coffee, he usually takes care of preparing our morning pot every day. That’s an absolutely wonderful thing for me since I have a hard time functioning early in the day. He knows exactly how I like my coffee prepared, and on mornings when we are out of beans at home, he knows exactly what to get for me from the nearest coffee shop. Sometimes he even comes home with pastries! These are simple joys that help start my day right, and I absolutely love him for it.

Life begins after coffee!
