Day Trip to Paris, France

 

Last weekend, we decided to go to Paris for a day. The Husband usually has only one free weekend per month so as much as possible we try to go and visit other places. We’ve already been to Paris several times, but it’s always a pleasure to go back. I’m happy to live in Metz, but Paris has definitely more activities and places to visit. And this time around, I wanted to bring Baby Girl to the Musée du Louvre!

Throwback Thursday: Golden Cowrie in Cebu, Philippines

 

I miss home. Home for me is Cebu, Philippines. I haven’t been back since 2011. Can you believe that? Some days I really really want to go back, but other days I just don’t know. Normally, we will go back in December this year. I can’t wait I can’t wait to be with my friends. I can’t wait to spend time on the beach. And I certainly can’t wait to eat in all my favorite places!

Throwback Thursday: Valentine’s Day 2013

For the past couple of weeks, the Husband and I went back and forth our Valentine’s Day plans. We wanted to eat out and then we didn’t. We wanted to do an activity and then we didn’t. I was thinking of trying an Indian restaurant. He wanted to do a culinary class together. But we couldn’t decide. I had already asked Dad to babysit Baby Girl for us and he agreed (after I bribed him with a promise that I would cook a Quiche Lorraine and an Apple Cake). Basta, all I knew was that the Husband and I would go out for Valentine’s Day. What’s great about the both of us – is that it doesn’t take much for us to be happy, just as long as we’re together. 🙂

Valentine’s Day 2019

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! ❤️ ❤️

I’m going to let you in a little secret about me. The Husband is too much of a gentleman to say it, so I will. I’m a pest. I’m a pain in the ass. I am the girl you hate to love (and maybe love to hate?). I tell my husband that I don’t like flowers and that I don’t want to receive a bouquet for Valentine’s. But you know what? The Husband learned the hard way that no bouquet meant having a wife in a bad mood the whole day. LOL.

Chez des Amis in Metz, France

 

A couple of days ago, the Husband, Baby Girl, and I spent a morning at Baby Girl’s future middle school. It was a Portes Ouvertes event and it was the opportunity for us to check out her school. She is starting middle school next school year and we thought it was important to accompany her in discovering and exploring her new school. We are not the perfect parents, but we love our daughter very much and try our best. I can’t remember how I felt starting middle years ago, but I know that my parents support meant extremely a lot!
