oops, sorry. the birthday girl overslept 😀
you see, I never thought I was going to celebrate my birthday 3 days in a row leading up to my actual birthday. last friday, my officemates surprised me by creating a banner greeting by my cubicle’s wall. then they also prepared a sumptuous lunch for the whole sales and marketing team. last night, after the blessing of a dear friend’s bistro here in kawit (more on that in a separate blog post), my old, old friends gave me an asalto at the island cove videoke bar! so I sang la isla bonita and some other madonna, wilson philips & the corrs songs, naturally. but you know what really made my night? dear sang for the first time! it took him 37 years to sing in front of an audience (eh kami kami lang naman). and the song that broke all rules: the distance between us by fra lippo lippi. whoaaaa!!! GO, DEAR!
today was just pure fun. nothing beats quality time spent with family, lots and lots of hugs and kisses. salamat sa Panginoon.
so, fess up! thank you for all you sweet ladies who joined in my 2nd birthday RAK challenge! I received a total of 29 entries! I enjoyed all your private emails, sweet thoughts and revelations. you guys are the best. I plan to print your emails and keep them. I am also in awe at some of you who even took pains in creating a color grid for me. fabulous. the entires really rocked in terms of color combos! grabe nahilo ako… sa mangha. ahww, sarap ng feeling talaga. so thank you, thank you, everyone 🙂
so who made my birthday layout extra special?
drumroll please…………………………… number 22!
congrats, marian! her entry suggested that I use yellow and green with pink. I froze for a while because these two colors aren’t always in my color wheel (yeah, I HAVE my own. hehe…). so anyways, I got to work right away as soon as I woke up at 7:00pm tonight, here’s what I came up with:
now here’s the wonderful part. as I was reading all the sweet greetings here, one commenter mentioned “big heart”. so I said, “wow, the best timing, or is it ESP?”. because for my birthday layout with my puppy bailey, my working title for the last 2weeks was “bigger heart”. I guess you know what I really mean by that. and yes, in this bigger heart of mine, where a stinky puppy newly resides along with the other loves of my life – – – I still have room for more.
thanks again, everyone! we’ll do this again next year!
