it was my wonderful husband’s 33rd birthday last friday, the 18th.
it was such a busy day, having been scheduled to attend Aia’s cotillion, so from work perze, em, and i had to rush to get there on time since i was co-emceeing. this made it very difficult to prepare a birthday celebration that he really deserves. i just want to thank him for being so unselfish of my attention that day and share it with Aia and our friends. (for Aia’s debut Album, please visit our twelvesixteen gallery.)
that weekend was also my mom’s birthday so again, perze had to share the celebration w/ my mom, (as well as a visit from my tita son and ate faith) and again my attention was divided. so i want to thank my understanding husband for putting my mom in that important light.
we ended up going to Longwood Gardens last saturday. it was perze’s first time there, and we just got a new camera, so it was a great place to share w/ him and emma. the last time i was there was when i was 10, and now that i’m 28, i’ve really grown such an appreciation for the plants and flowers…with both families having propensity to nurture their green thumbs, i’ve also really learned to love and appreciate such beauty. afterwards, we drove all the way to PA to Minado’s for dinner- a family favorite.
the weekend was so busy that i didn’t even have time to blog and archive my birthday greeting for him…so now that the weekend is over, i still want to take this time to think upon him and honor him with this simple gesture. when we called nanay and tatay in the phils, i talked to each of them and thanked them for giving life to perze and for the care they gave him, which was a huge part of why i love him. you just have to realize that you need to thank your in laws for the great and immense job they did in taking care of the person you married. they are the way they are because of the huge impact their parents had on them. and i really can attest to that in perze.
mahal, i just want to tell you thank you.
i really cannot imagine myself w/o you. thank you for taking care of our family…for being so unselfish and responsible. thank you for being so patient, and for reminding me to be a better person. thank you for really cherishing me and adoring emma. i love you so much mahal. happy birthday. God grant you your heart’s desires mahal.
