The Philippines boasts of having a lot of beaches – from white sandy beaches to pink shorelines. That’s why I became so excited with this week’s travel theme. Here are some of the beaches I’ve been to in my homeland 🙂
Boracay Island, Aklan
This shot was taken last 2008, before Daddy Bunny and I got married. Boracay’s white sand is famous worldwide and they have these huge sand castles at night that add up to the island’s views.
I’m guilty of sometimes walking with my head bowed down and did not realize that I’m missing a lot. A lot of that can be happening when you just look around. For this week’s travel theme, we focus on the things that we find when we look UP. These things show us how beautiful life can be.

We attended a birthday party before where their theme was Up, the movie. I smiled when I saw the travel theme and remembered these pictures from the party. 🙂

No matter what challenges life brings us, we should always stand up from each fall, hold our head up high and move on.
Life is Beautiful
I’ve only been to Daddy Bunny’s hometown in Pangasinan once ever since we’ve been together. We brought his sisters and our then 1+ yr. old Yui last 2010. She was just learning how to walk then and until now she enjoys watching her video in Manaoag walking and running with her Dora balloon. It was a fun trip and I’m looking forward to more trips there so that Yui can also experience her tita’s childhood playground.

That’s why when my mother-in-law said that we’re invited to Daddy Bunny’s cousin’s wedding, we got excited. To top it off, they invited Yui to be a flower girl. It will be her first time to be a flower girl and the little one was so excited when she learned about it. As early as January, she would practice her “walk” at home and would always remind her titas of the trip.
I can’t believe that the long-awaited trip is this weekend already. It seemed to be so far away before. We’re supposed to be super excited for the trip already but we can’t just be 100% into it since the little one’s got a stomach flu and is still under medication. Hopefully, she will be better by tomorrow and will endure the long road trip. I just hope my little girl will have the strength to walk the aisle tomorrow afternoon. 🙂
