I know it’s been a while. I’ve missed this little space on the web. I wanted to say hello and update you on how things are since my last post.
I turned 26 nearly two weeks ago on August 13. Typically birthday celebrations here are low key and involve eating pancit (Filipino noodle dish) and cake with the family, but the festivities were much quieter this year. If you haven’t read my previous post, then you may not know that my mom was in the hospital. In fact, my birthday marked three weeks since she was admitted in the hospital and was also the day she was transferred to rehab for further recovery. I won’t go into details again, but you can read my very personal post about it here. I will say that my life has been an emotional rollercoaster of ups and downs for the last few weeks. I’m thankful that she is still here and was able to wish me a happy birthday for another year. I want to end this post with a few snaps I took during my birthday — homemade chocolate cupcakes I baked, an Alexander Wang wallet I gifted to myself, pancit my aunt made and outfit of the day details.
I’ll be bringing you more posts this week. Hope you’ve had a nice Monday.
