November 15, 2018

“May you never be too grown up- to search the skies on Christmas Eve.”

Yes, my beloved readers, I am back to writing! after almost a month-long hiatus on my blog (or two months), I finally found some inspiration and spirit back into my life. How have you guys been?

On my end, it has been a beautiful 2018 so far, and I cannot wait to share it all with you. But, before we say bonjour to 2019, let us first give time to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year – Christmas! and we were blessed to start our official countdown for the holidays with a gorgeous Christmas Tree Lighting, accompanied by good food, and a bunch of great friends – at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila.
