June Weddings

The month of June came with the weddings of my hubby’s pretty nieces, Denden and Danica to their handsome grooms 🙂  And as families are expected in this part of the world, the hubby and I attended both weddings. Take note that in both weddings we were also assigned as secondary sponsors (we were cord sponsors).

For Denden’s wedding, we had to travel about an hour from Butuan City to be there. It was held at the church just beside the  house of Denden’s family; reception was held on a specially arranged area between their house and the church. Danica’s wedding, on the other hand, was held at a convention center in the city. Both the wedding ceremony and reception were held there.

As always, weddings make me smile. They always remind me that people in love always, always desire to make life-long commitments before God, family and friends 🙂 God bless the newly-wed couples!

Finally, the Packages

We just got some good news today 🙂

The hubby and I finally got the packages that my sister sent from the US. We say that it was just timely since one of the boxes included canned goods and toiletries and we were just planning to do some grocery shopping. Thank God and thanks to my sister, we save some money because of the goodies that we got. The packages did come at the right time 🙂


Waiting for a White Rose

image_1 One of my favorite flowers of all time is the white rose. I took this shot of a white rose I was holding during my younger brother’s wedding in 2008.

Although I’ve received some bouquets of red roses several times, mostly given by admirers, none had really given me white ones. I often thought then: how come no one thought about that?

Amazingly, even without me telling him, it was my fiance (now, my hubby) who did give me my first bouquet of white roses 🙂  Looking at this photo now reminded me that my white roses came a year later after this shot. Sometimes what we are waiting for really does come to pass.
