Happy Monday

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHappy Monday, everyone. This snap was taken over the weekend by the husband. We spent the sunnier part of Saturday just enjoying the clean air of the south.

Hard to believe we’ve already hit the ‘Ber’ months of 2014. I wouldn’t be surprised if we start hearing Christmas carols blasting through the malls any moment now. If there’s one thing we Filipinos love to celebrate, it’s the birth of Christ.

In other news, on my cork board at home is a little yellow paper listing all the blog entries I’ve been meaning to write. I slowly tick away whenever a feature is published, but I have to admit that it has been taking me longer than I hoped to go through this list. I will say this from my first year of professionalizing my site, maintaining a quality blog isn’t easy and I have tons of respect for bloggers who can whip up detailed features from Monday to Friday. Daily posts is something my work and family life can’t sacrifice enough time for and I’m happy to accept my blogging for what it is right now: a passion project that opens my eyes to things happening in the country. I hope you stick around for the ride, despite posts sometimes being few and far between on occasion.

On that note, here are some awesome links I’ve discovered from around the web:
