Seven things we are grateful for today:
Our faith in God and the values that we share.
How much we adore each other. That after all these years we have remained in love and still find each other’s ways cute and adorable. That we are still cheesy and make an effort to surprise each other.
That we are the best of friends. There’s magic in being the best of friends with your partner. We just have so much fun! Also, there’s so much respect that goes into a relationship when you treat each other as friends.
That we have family and friends that support and love us. Our life together has been blessed by wonderful people around us.
We are blessed in lots of ways, everyday and always. Married life isn’t always rosy but at the end of each day, there will always be something/s to be grateful for.
We share our passion for the things we love: travel, photography, food, books and writing.
Our hopeful dreams and positive outlook for the future. Brought about by a few challenges through the years, time has taught us to be resilient together. As a team, we learn our lessons and move forward together.
Its moments like these when no matter how cold it gets, you emanate warmth from the inside because you are holding hands and hugging tight with the one who truly makes you happy. <3
There is no Math or Science, no exact formula to make it work…most times it just takes a good balance, letting ourselves go with the flow without compromising the values important to us.
Sometimes there are no reasons…just a lot of understanding, giving and taking.
There are shared moments…of milestones and defeats, of dreams and what-ifs, of tears and most importantly, an abundance of laughter. We never let a day pass without making each other laugh and making each other happy is a always priority.
There are moments when we let each other be…it could be anger, disappointment, frustration or a day when things aren’t going right—whatever the reason, we listen and hope that a hug will make things better (and it does!).
There are adventures…the travels that make us learn more about the world and of each other, the challenges that help us become better people.
There are times for daydreaming…of things we want to do, places we want to go, of seeing ourselves grow old together and still holding hands.
There is so much respect…for each other’s opinions, for when we both need a bit of space, for our individual growth. We always want to bring out the best in each other.
There’s a lot of trust involved…in God, in each other, in people we hold dear.
And of course, there’s friendship and love…our great foundations in being TWOgether. Everyday and always. <3
So we decided to have a “staycation” (meaning: vacation at home or in the city you live in) in Sydney for two days and give ourselves a break from doing household chores and pretend to be tourists in our city.
Dropped by World Square and checked out the shops there. We saw our favourite Meiji Chocolates at Miracle Asian Supermarket.
From our suking DVD store, we had dinner at Yummy Chinese BBQ Restaurant then went back to Chinatown and visited the biggest Morning Glory store I’ve ever seen.
Some of the stuff I got from Morning Glory: Banana Case, telephone-inspired hair ties and a pair of Elmo earphones.
Saturday, the Husband’s birthday, I took him to the Adriano Zumbo Lab at Rozelle. The Husband has a very sweet tooth and he loves to bake so I thought that going to Zumbo’s Lab would be a great treat for him.
I will write a separate post about our adventure at Zumbo’s Lab, in the mean time, feast your eyes on the hundreds of Macarons that we saw at the lab.
Followed by a good stroll outside Westfield. Went in and out of shops, played at the Apple Store, took photos of street art and incidentally came across Mario and Luigi.
A quick coffee break at Becasse Bakery (went back to Westfield Dining Precinct) before we attended mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral.
