The Last Snow of the Year

 

Apparently, this will be the last snow of the year (and the most we’ve had). Although I hate taking my car when it’s snowing and I’m constantly stressed about black ice, it’s kinda sad to think of how little snow we have nowadays.

Hello! How’s your Christmas season so far? 🎄

I love giving gifts to friends and family. I always have. I love receiving them too. When I turned 18, I had a debut party which is a traditional celebration done in the Philippines. I remember asking my friends to give me homemade presents rather than store-bought ones. I’ll never forget that.
