Nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award

I am so happy and humbled to announce that I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by my beautiful blogger friend:


Thank you so much Rachel, not just for your kind nomination (again), but for your constant support. You’ve been so encouraging from the very beginning of my blogging journey and I really appreciate it!

One of the many benefits of joining this blogging community is that I’m able to meet such intelligent and and positive women like you! Your writing is uplifting and bright, and I always enjoy browsing through your blog, especially your beautiful travel photos to Italy!

I encourage you to read Rachel’s blog, particularly her recent post titled Mother’s Day Letter, a very touching piece she wrote about how much she loves and appreciates her mom.

Reading Rachel’s post about the lasting and profound impact of her mother’s love has inspired me in my influential role as a stay at home mother.

Thank you again Rachel. Your support and your feedback is sincerely appreciated : )

As part of the nomination process, here are some random, and hopefully interesting facts about me:

  1. I was born in the Philippines, and moved to the U.S. when I was 11 years old.
  2. To learn how to speak English, I watched Sesame Street : )
  3. I have an unwavering love for BJ’s Brewery’s Pizookie dessert.
  4. I believe The Eagles are the best songwriters/musicians that ever lived:
    Don Henley is a masterful poet.
  5. I am a musical theater fan. My favorite musicals are Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and Wicked.
  6. I want to learn how to bake chocolate cake from scratch.
  7. One of my goals this summer is to eat more vegetarian meals! Wish me luck : )

    • Rachel,

      I know I’ve said this already, but I just LOVE reading the words favourite and colour on your writings : ) Makes me smile every time!

      What’s your favorite song by The Eagles? There are so many to choose from, I know.
      Peaceful Easy Feeling and Hole in the World are some of mine. But really, I think ALL of their songs are magical.

      Which reminds me, I should watch their Concert DVD with my toddler later and sing and dance all afternoon!

      P.S. You deserve those kind words I wrote about you ; )
