simplicity is beauty

Last Saturday, I went to Mississauga with my mom and my sister Catherine to help her look for her prom dress. Unfortunately we didn't have much luck! Oh well, we're going out again tonight to keep looking! He he ...

After shopping, I took my mom and Catherine to Merciful Redeemer so that they can see the church.

Just wanted to write about my mom's first impression when she saw the church...

From the outside, my mom comments that's it's really pretty.

Then, we went inside ... my mom's first reaction ...TEARS! =)

She loved how it's simplicity really accented it's beauty.

Then I started tearing up too! LOL! ... fast forward a year and a half from now, I can just see how much tears will be flowing when I walk down the aisle with my parents ... *tear*

*happy sigh* =)

As we were leaving, my mom comments ... "Ang ganda ng napili mong church anak. Ang ganda talaga ..." (You picked a beautiful church my daughter, it really is beautiful.")

TIP: For the journey ahead

After I attending a bridal show in January, I've been getting random emails about wedding stuff. My email has probably been entered into a database somewhere (not cool ...). But this newsletter email that I received today had a really good message to it. It's from a lady who is a wedding planner and has unfortunately recently separated from her husband after 2 years of marriage.

"...sometimes I find that as women we tend to get caught up in the fantasy that this wedding is the beginning of the “perfect life and happiness” and it very well could be. But I also would like to just leave you with this tip. Make sure that after the wedding you still ensure that you take the time for balance in your lives as individuals. What I mean by that is you need to ensure every aspect of your life is fulfilled. You still need to go after the things you want out of life. And your partner needs to continue to do the same. Life doesn’t have to get stale or comfortable. In fact it can be quite fulfilling and exciting. Challenge one another. Be the other persons cheerleader. Growing together doesn’t mean just getting old it means helping one another with everything you want out of life.  You have to communicate even if it means arguing, but you need to share your feelings and come up with a compromise that both of you are happy with."

October 13, 2012

So last Saturday, Mark and I helped his older sister and her husband move to their new apartment. Yes, it was a lot of work, but it was also very exciting for the two newlywed couple.

It made me dream about "our" moving day! =)

Nothing has really been finalized as to where we would be living after we got married since we have to wait until we know where Mark finds a job. But I can't help but dream about our own place. LOL!

I know that I am getting WAY ahead of myself, but ultimately, the whole reason why we're getting married is so that we can be together. Hmmmm ....

That's it! =) Just dreaming about Saturday October 13, 2012 ... when Mark and I can finally be together at the place we will call "home".
