Rekindling the passion

After months of hibernating, finally I am back to the blogging world. I apologize to all my dear blogger friends out there who have been trying to get hold of me. And for those who have been very kind to leave messages and comments on my posts, I am therefore grateful and just want you to know that I appreciate it ( *wide grin*). It's really been a long time, (or should I say, almost a year perhaps?) since I posted here. Proud to say my blog's been a year old now! Gosh, that you can call abandonment. Pffft...

So how have I been? Since I'm waaaay behind the seasonal updates, here are just some of the highlights of my so-called life :)

I have immersed myself into baking, and learning more stuff. My contentment isn't fulfilled until my repertoire's big enough to satisfy both hubby and I's craving. Thanks to the cookbook my dearly beloved mother-in-law passed onto her youngest son, I am deeply enjoying and savoring every new recipe my hands could get into.

Springtime gardening was one of hubby and I's favorite activities together. We planted mostly colorful flowers like Tulips, Petunias, Impatiens, Daisies, Begonias, Vincas, Roses, Lilies, Geraniums, and some herbs. One of my friends who was hooked into the Farmville game even quoted that our garden looked Farmville-inspired. That was a compliment :)

Spring was also my Birth-season, officially the month of May. I celebrated my birthday with the help of my good friends and had another fun-filled day with laughter and what can you expect, more eating!

Say hello to Summer! Of course, we wouldn't let the sun shine for nothing! We spent a day at the beach and watched the sun do the rest. As a typical Filipina who wouldn't want to get tan, my heartfelt thanks to Banana Boat for the SPF 100. Hubby refers to it as my "vampire stuff".

I am a certified Harry Potter fan and this is my one-way ticket to the end. As we watched the final epic battle between Harry and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, I found myself wiping away the tears as I bid goodbye to the greatest Sci-Fi story I have ever seen.

To my Filipino friends, this is not the Chocolate Hills of Bohol. These are the Alleghany and Massanutten Mountain Range in Shenandoah, Virginia. We took our annual camping activity to the highest level as we spent a week in one of America's national parks. It was also where we spent hubby's birthday and at the same time, when the Hurricane Irene struck the East Coast which makes it even more memorable I suppose.

Wow, it really has been a while, isn't it? I'd love to share more and fill the gap in my timeline, but space isn't enough. As what others would say, "So many things to do, so little time." As the dreary weather and cold season comes a-knocking, and so is my writing. I guess this proves that if you have the passion for something, it never dies. This is proof. I am back :)

"Life is a journey to be savored each step of the way."
