Dear Blog Readers,

THANK YOU for blog hopping to my site every single day of 2012. I’ve been living my life parallel to yours, experiencing each day right next to you, feeling KILIG/FAT/GRUMPY/HAPPY/PMS-y/AMAZED/CURIOUS/PUZZLED/EXCITED/IN  LOVE IN THAT ANNOYING KIND OF WAY/STRESSED/DEPRESSED/GRATEFUL/WHATDAHECK/ANOBANAMANYAN/SHOUT TO THE WORLD KIND OF GIDDY with each and every one of you!!! Thank you for feeling all these things with me and for me–that indeed is a mark of a true friend, and I consider you all my FRIENDS because of that. You are not just random visitors in my site, I can honestly feel a connection with you guys and that’s what keeps me motivated to write these entries (no matter how silly and shallow they are!) My brain is on holiday mode so it’s not functioning as properly as I would have hoped (when does it ever?!?! HAHA) so you’ll have to bear with this mish mash of words. How I wish I could tell you how much you are appreciated, my dear readers. This blog site is my ultimate happy place..and it’s all because of YOU! So THANK YOU for faithfully supporting me throughout 2012. I hope that as I embrace life changes this 2013, you will still be there for me every step of the way. I have a feeling this will be a year of GRACE, CLARITY, and PURPOSE for me AND YOU–and just like most of you, I feel that the Lord is calling me to do BIGGER things (which requires an extra teaspoon of maturity!!! KAYA KO BA?!?!) and so more than anything, I will need all your prayers and encouragement!

Again, thank you my dear readers. Sending you all my love!!! My wish for you comes from Numbers 6:25 “MAY THE LORD SHINE HIS FACE UPON YOU AND BE KIND TO YOU”
