The Married Life

I’ve experienced the sweetest birthday month this year and it’s all because the Husband made sure that every week of January, I get to enjoy a slice of cake. The cakes he got me were not fancy but just very thoughtful because he made sure they were cakes I enjoy eating.

On a different perspective, I see the sweetness of each cake pertain to the sweetness of my life then, now and in future. I feel very blessed to come to my 38th year with  lots of love, happiness and peace in my heart. I’m so grateful…so so grateful of the life I live, the special people close to me and the moments I spend with them. The past two years, I have gone thru a downsizing of sorts. It’s a process of knowing myself more and letting go of certain parts of my life. It was painful and took a lot of humility and acceptance, but liberating in the end. To be free of things that make me an unproductive and superficial person was the best gift of that painful journey. I pray that God will continue to guide me in this path I’ve chosen.

Anyway, back to my cakes. Every weekend the Husband got me a cake and I get to eat it on Saturday afternoons with coffee that he made.

Hokkaido Cheesecake (Mini) on the first weekend of January. It’s a cake that I frequently buy from Breadtop because it’s the perfect size for my Husband and I to share. I love its lightness and sweetness. Goes well with tea and coffee.

Just taking a minute to be grateful for a Husband who supports my love for the Creative Life.

I’m a trying-hard-at-being-creative person. I wasn’t born gifted with hands that can draw or skills that can create beautiful things. I worked extra hard at being creative as it didn’t come naturally to me.  But I have always loved creating things, whether it is in art or writing. I used to create scrapbooks before; have always loved taking photographs and writing journals.  I have always appreciated the work the comes in art and literature.

Having met the Husband, he nurtured my skill in photography and drawing. He exposed me to art by taking me to exhibitions. He’s gifted me with cameras that will help me take photographs and continually coaches me in using them. Over time, I have developed a little skill at writing my thoughts thru my blog and learning from authors and bloggers I admire. The Husband also takes part in my blog life by developing a site for me and  making me understand the technicalities of a website.

Being with the Husband has opened my eyes to a life of creativity…of seeing the world differently thru my eyes and being able to create something that fulfills me.
