It’s been a great year so far :) Actually, every year keeps getting better and better compared to the previous ones.  I hope it continues to follow this pattern for the many years to come.

Quite frankly, I’ve been busy with online and offline things.  I’m transitioning to a new job, moving houses, blogging, tending to my heart (lol) and many other things.  Everyday, is a great day to fulfill a dream, and to follow my heart’s beat.

I’m writing this at the restaurant Balcony of my hotel in Boracay.  Don’t be envious, you don’t know how much hard work I put in to make my dreams possible.  Sometimes I don’t get to sleep enough, had to make crazy hard decisions, prioritize and sacrifice a few things to get the things that I want and need in my life.  Yesterday, I only had 1 hr sleep in 2 straight days.  yeah.  It’s because I’m at “work-from-gala” mode.

I’m just happy that today, May 1 Labor Day, is a holiday and i get to relax for real :)  And it’s my blog’s anniversary!
