Last year, we spent our Sinulog by going north of Cebu to a beach. .
This year, I didn't get to spend any time with any of my favorite people. But that's just life. Sometimes they bring you to different paths, sometimes you just need to grow. That doesn't mean you're going to lose them. .
This year is changing a lot of things for me, and to the people around me. And I admit it scares me sometimes. But it also makes me so glad that I got to spend moments like these with them. xx 👯💃🏻👯
Feeling restless today. Planning and thinking of what’s next, and new adventures.. but also really want to be home and close to my family. My 2 month year old nephew Rowen has open heart surgery on Monday and im feeling lots about that.
It good to be in the present moment, slow down and enjoy what’s in front of you. Sometimes simple is better. This is a photo by my dear friend @jeraldmcdermott who started taking portraits of me in the beginning of it all. ⭐️ In the end, its really people and authentic moments that I’ll remember and cherish.
On a tour around the Sian Ka'an biosphere reserve, we stopped off for lunch at Punta Allen. This little Mayan fishing village is mostly untouched by mass tourism. Walking down one of the main streets gives you small glimpses of the coastline and the beautiful turquoise water beyond.

The other night I joined a handful of inspiring women at a “Dream Night” put together by a sweet friend. Together and individually we prayed and sought vision for 2018. I grabbed a magazine, scissors and some glue and plopped myself down on a couch. 2018 has alluded me so far, so I was really looking forward to creating my vision board. I knew that once I began leafing through the magazine, the pictures that would reveal my heart’s longings would jump out at me, creating a picture of my grandiose future. 😏
I got to work right away, cutting out every picture that spoke to me. The excitement to discover what I’m called to do for the next year propelled me forward. But, not too long into it, I found myself slowing down. The pictures I was selecting caught me by surprise:
A dad playing with his son, a California beach, a table set for a dinner party... These single pictures were revealing a larger one of what my life looks like now. —-
And I realized, that in my search this year to discover what being in love with my life looks like, that everything I’m truly in love with is right here in front of me.

Cobble stone streets and windows with creaky green shutters. I can think of worse places to get lost 🌿 #goexplore#venice
