The hubby and I both self-declared a long weekend last weekend. Justified naman because it was a milestone in our married life, hehe. March 17th, which fell on a Saturday this year, was our 6th wedding anniversary. So, we decided to spend it on a trip to a place we hadn’t been to yet. I suggested Puerto Princesa City (PPC) in Palawan and the hubby said yes in a jiffy. He said he wanted to experience the marvelous underground river tour the place is famous for. I, on the other hand, wanted the same and more.
So, I immediately booked our tickets and accommodation for a 4D3N vacation (March 15-18, 2018) at PPC which, we would later find out, is known as the “city in a forest.” We even had some company during the trip courtesy of Mame, my MIL, and my balikbayan aunt Laura. Gusto raw nila sumama, eh madali naman kami kausap, kaya go! Totoo naman pala talaga na maganda at malinis sa Puerto Princesa! Nakakatuwa at nakakamangha rin na napapaligiran ng mga puno at berdeng berde ang kapaligiran doon!

Next month, the hubby and I will already be celebrating our second wedding anniversary. Oh, how time flies! I can still vividly remember the time when he proposed to me (in the most lousy and uncreative way ever, haha), when we were taking care of the wedding preparations, the wedding day itself, our honeymoon, our first few weeks as a married couple and so much more.
Why are wedding anniversaries celebrated, anyway? Of course, it’s a milestone for married couples. But more than being a milestone, for me it’s a sort of renewal of your marriage vows and affirmation of your love and commitment to each other. Wedding anniversaries need not be lavish or anything. It can always be celebrated quietly and modestly. The most important thing of all is you and your spouse know and recognize the real meaning behind it.

It’s our 10th month as husband and wife today. So far, so good. In our fairly short time as a married couple, the hubby and I have been through a lot already. With this, somehow I’m confident that we can overcome any challenge or obstacle that life may throw at us.
Two more months and it’s gonna be our first wedding anniversary! We’ve been blessed with a happy marriage, loving family, caring friends, stable jobs, and good health. We really can’t ask for more with the life we have now. We may have failed in our quest to build our own little family last year, but we still have this year and the coming ones to try again. In God’s time, our family dream will come true.

Now that I’m married, planning for Christmas and New Year celebrations is a must. As early as the day after our wedding, the hubby and I have already made “internal arrangements” as to where we would celebrate the two special occasions. Christmas would be with my side of the family while the New Year would be with his. Fair enough.
Things were different when I was still single. It’s a must that we stick together at home. When the hubby and I became a couple, I remember celebrating a few New Year’s with them. There was even one New Year celebration where they invited my family over. It was a fun celebration complete with parlor games, prizes, gifts, fireworks and of course, lots of food.

Marriage is a lifelong commitment that two persons deeply in love with each other make. True. It is, however, not just filled with love but with all other things that make the commitment more bearable and long lasting.
happy at four months!
The hubby and I are now on our fourth month as a married couple. What a short, short time, I must say. We have not proven anything solid yet, except for our willingness to stick with each other no matter what challenge or adversity this marriage brings us.

Our 3rd month together as husband and wife falls on Father’s Day. Now that we’re expecting, I think it’s just proper to greet my husband a Happy Father’s Day. I did just that when I woke up this morning. Haha.
So far, our married life has been really great and blessed. No big problems, whatsoever. And we’re thankful because God continues to guide our marriage. It’s too early to tell what will happen to us one, five or ten years from now, but we’re very optimistic about our future. Especially now that we’re looking forward to the arrival of our first child.
