My idea of de-stressing these days are going to the grocery and cooking dishes that I’ve never tried before. Today, I went to Viet Hoa by myself and was giggling with excitement ‘cause it had everything I needed for the Kare-Kare which I’ll make as soon as I get home. Lol, shallow. #goodluck #marriedlife #almost30 #cheapthrills #trololol

each-beat:

I remember when we were teenagers and just getting our licenses. I was trying to set you up with one of my best friends, and I wanted it to work out so bad (but apparently you liked me the whole time!) We were all hanging out one day, driving to see a movie (you in her car and me in mine) when my friend randomly pulled to the side of the road. I pulled over to see what was going on. You got out of her car, walked over to mine, and sat in the passenger seat. I looked over at you perplexed, and you grinned but with a worried, concerned look on your face. “I didn’t want you to have to merge on the highway by yourself. I know how much it scares you.” You were (and still are) the sweetest. Who would’ve thought that 5 years later we’d be married and that you’d still be the one to help me calm me down when merging into traffic (and reminding me to breathe when passing huge trucks in the pouring rain).

One of Beyoncé’s models for her VMA Vanguard Award performance tells a story about how Beyoncé comforted her before the show began. So sweet!

Christianity is not about not swearing. It’s not about not having impure thoughts. Really, it’s not about not at all. Christianity is about Jesus.

Happy birthday, Lola! I miss your gentleness every day. I love you forever. :,

Didn’t realize that it was the 28th today, my Lola’s birthday. Also didn’t realize that I would be crying this much again, until I saw photos and videos of her that I kept on my iPhone even after her passing. I miss her terribly that it hurts. But I know that she’s having a far more fabulous birthday in heaven right now, with God, angels, friends and family members who have gone before her, so I tell myself that it’s all good.

You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.

Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.
