Little Fashionista

This is a story about the little fashionista, my niece. These pictures were taken when she was just one year old. My sister first put a dress on her as shown on the left. For some reason, my niece did not like that dress and wanted her mom to take it off. Then my sister put on a different set of clothes and that was OK.

My niece seemed to like what she had on the second time around. Then she took the first dress and stepped on it. My sister could not believe it and started laughing at the …

Moving Prep and Tips
Winter season is not my favorite. It is frigidly cold up here in northern Minnesota and I don’t like to go outside. Even when going to town for grocery shopping, my husband has to drag me. I have been living here for almost eleven years now but I still haven’t totally adapted to the cold weather yet. It is really hard for me especially since I grew up in a tropical country, the Philippines, where it is warm all year round. I sometimes think about moving to somewhere warm and if that happens anytime soon, my hubby and I will …

First Snow of the Year

These pictures were taken more than a week ago when we had our first big snow storm.  I woke up late and was wondering about the brightness outside while I was still in the bedroom. When I looked out the window, I found out that we finally got some snow.  Not that I was looking forward to it but when it did not come when we usually get it, I began to wonder about the reality of climate change.

It is our first real snow of the year and will probably stay until spring.  We got all of our fall chores …

Mall of America

When I first came here to the US, I flew in by myself and it was my first time flying across the Pacific Ocean. At the time, I had no idea what lie’s ahead of me except that I trusted God for bringing me and my husband together. It was ten years ago when I first arrived here in the United States of America.  I can’t believe that it has been that long since I moved in with my husband.  It feels like it was just yesterday.  I am now a believer that time really flies fast when you are …
