Its been more than 3 weeks spent in the Philippines and here we are again in America. We had a nice, busy first week, fun 2nd week and a holy third week. The main reason for our trip is our church wedding and I’m glad to say that it turned out the way that we planned it to be. Thanks to the people who really helped us to make things possible. To both our parents who shared with us the expenses for a nice wedding. And to my mom, she is so great, Thanks Mommy! While I did the planning my mom carried it out my plan since I am not there in the Philippines. She really made time to talk to all the suppliers and go to various bridal fair to get discounted rates.
My husband will post the pictures for you guys to see what we have prepared for.

Our first week was busy since a lot of trip was to meet up with our suppliers. After the wedding, we were able to go in Sonya’s Garden in Tagaytay City, Manila Ocean park, Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban Quezon, and Palaisdaan in Bay Laguna. Its a first for my hubby and Jeff, his good friend who is his best man, to have a procession on Good Friday for the observance of the Holy Week.
Overall, me and my hubby have set our minds to save enough so we can go back and live in Philippines. We don’t know when, hopefully after we win the lotto:), but hopefully we will be able to save a lot and move. There is still no place like home but at this time the opportunities in Phi is very limited, thats why we want to make the most of our stay here in America.
