5 Years of Blogging

When I started blogging 5 years ago, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. I knew I just wanted to start a blog to record the memories I had of my children growing up and to connect with other stay at home moms. What started to be a personal journey became a host to Mommy Moments, a weekly meme where moms from all walks of life connected and shared their own motherhood adventures. It was great as I got to meet various moms online and shared our stories and learned from each other.

But as they say, all things do come to an end. When Mommy Moments finally bid goodbye, it was also the time that I had my site redesigned and refocused. Intentional parenting became the heart of this blog. We began to chronicle our homeschool adventure as a family, product reviews which greatly helped our homeschool and homeschool helps for other homeschool families in the Philippines.

I pray that may this blog serve as an inspiration to families out there. As we continue on this journey of parenting together, may God guide us and help us to be faithful in fulfilling our roles as parents.

Nostalgic Mom

Now that my kids are bigger, by that, I mean they are getting to be more independent by doing things on their own. They take a bath, brush their teeth, comb their hair, wash their hands, dry their hands either by wiping or using the hand dryers and they change their clothes by themselves. I sometimes feel nostalgic because I know that I no longer have infants and toddlers but they are indeed growing up! As early as now, I do miss those times that I have to help my daughter with these personal hygiene stuff but everything in life does change. I now have a little lady who understands and reacts to life’s challenges. Where have the years gone? I am so glad that I have all these memories – here in my heart and here in this blog.

Nostalgia – Wedding Photo

I totally forgot to post for Nostalgia this week but I don’t want to miss it since I wanted to share with you our wedding photo since we are celebrating our 10th year wedding anniversary this week.

I can’t believe it has been 10 years now…

Nostalgia – Kyla’s 7th Birthday Presentation

Photobucket

I can not believe it but my daughter is turning 7 already… So I made a simple video presentation for her! As I made this video, I can’t help but be nostalgic… I can still remember the first time I held her and the breastfeeding sessions and all the firsts….

I am just grateful to God that He allowed me to be the mom of Kyla and that I was able to witness and be part of her life for the past 7 years. I have no regrets over the time I have spent with her.

Happy birthday Kyla! 🙂 I pray that may you grow up continually loving the Lord with all your heart and may you be filled with wisdom too! May God shower you with his favor and never depart from His word! We love you and are very proud of you!

Nostalgia : My Wedding Dress

In a few more weeks, we would be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe that it has been 10 years since that beautiful wedding day we had. I can still remember choosing my wedding dress design over the available designs at the internet. I looked over destination wedding dresses and over a hundred designs available online. Eventually, I chose this design and really loved the wedding dress I wore on our special day. I also was glad that I didn’t have to spend too much to make my wedding dress too!


I would be writing more about our wedding day as our anniversary comes nearer. Join me in my Nostalgia journey…
