So much I’ve learned

So many people I’ve learned about

And all I can be is grateful for the opportunity for the education

When people don’t treat you the way you want to be treated, you learn to be grateful for those who do, and thank those who helped you come to that realization.

I regret not taking more pictures. I regret not holding this little handsome fella before I left. I regret not talking more videos. Memories are no good when it comes to something this adorable!

Have you ever been surprised to find out your bf have been somewhere you didn’t know before and immediately ask him when and with whom did he go to that place, just to quickly realize you might not like the answer and you secretly regret you had asked because you’re afraid he’ll say it was with his ex? And then you’ll have to imagine them being in that place, taking kissy pics and “usies” and doing other lame romantic things together at that place and that place is now forever added to your pile of band-from-ever-visiting-places. Yep, me either.

This little guy is going to be a mama’s boy I just know it. 

And now, I wait. 

The day these puppies join our home, is the day I get to say “life, you are complete.”  

But we all know the reality is, I’ll probably want more. Eh, what’s the worst that can happen? A puppy hoarder doesn’t sound toooo bad. Haha

When you can’t change how you feel, why not change how you look. Thanks hair, for looking extra luscious today.

Life’s been confusing lately.
But then again, when was it ever not?

Here’s a Clift note version of the past couple of months.

"So sorry to hear about your lost…"

"Your offer on the home was accepted!"

"Oops… But the closing cost is almost $10k" —which was disclosed but nonetheless not anticipated.

"But here are the keys to your beautiful home!"

"Oh by the way, your mom hates your guts!"

Thanks life. Award goes to you for most literal way of bringing the good news with the bad.

I find him most endearing when he’s asleep.

I snuggle up close, gently give him a hug and kiss, but he has no clue.

I could whisper to him that I think he’s really lovely to be with and it’s like I didn’t tell a soul.

The past few months brought a lot of ups and downs, but I lay here happy to be experiencing it all with him.

And only him.

It’s a struggle everyday to not look at hashtag puppies on Instagram.

Had such a fun Saturday today that it made me forget this is day 2 of 4 without the boyfriend. 
I don’t remember the last time we spent even an entire day apart. 
But this is nice. 
Space, me time, friends and family time to recoup and find new point of views, thoughts, and ideas to sprout fresh discussions, hopefully to help strengthen the relationship is nice and much needed.

I pretty much spent a good late afternoon/evening today playing Legos, zombies vs. plants, and having fun/carefree conversations with 3 elementary-school-aged kids. (Not sure what group they’re considered; older than toddlers, but younger than pre-teens, but kids is too general, I think?).
I don’t know what has gotten into me. 
But my biological clock is perhaps telling me something when I found myself having a lot more fun and would rather hang with a bunch of little kids than those my age, albeit with a glass of wine in hand. 

Well, with that said, cheers to another one of my girls tying the knot pretty darn soon.

Wine and chatting it up with these two sure makes for an interesting Saturday night ☺️
