Another Change

I want to apologize to my readers if you’ve been encountering weird stuff on my blog. First I was hacked, I got that fixed but just recently my theme got all messed up too.  It was just showing text. Not likey that much.

So, I hope you guys like the new look.  I really liked the old one but it looks like the more simple it is, the better.

Timing could not be anymore perfect for this change in theme, since soon enough there will be more changes in Nick’s and my life.  Nick’s going to be done with school in 2 weeks and we’ve finally decided that it’s time to make some little Nicks and Tanyas. OH MY GOSH!!! And once there’s a little one baking in the oven, we might also have to move to a bigger place. Pretty big announcement huh?

The great thing about change is that I actually enjoy and look forward to it. I will admit that sometimes it gets pretty scary, but I get really excited about how my God is going to pull through. How He’d show himself always faithful in taking care of us.

I am always reminded of when I moved here to Seattle from Manila.  My friends would tell me that that must’ve been really scary.  I was honestly more excited that scared.  I was excited to be married to my best friend, excited for the new things I have never seen and was definitely overjoyed because Jesus showed Himself faithful in finally letting Nick and I be together after 3 years of a long distance relationship.

Change helps me look up to where I’m supposed to look.  It helps me look up to Him who knows what He’s doing.  And I trust that with the discomforts that comes along with change, He will never leave me nor forsake me.

I know that our future little kiddos will be a handful and could be stressful. But the positives will definitely outweigh the hardships.  I believe that.

I am excited to hear an additional sound of laughter in our house.  It will be wonderful.  So please pray that after Nick is done with school in 2 weeks that he gets a job that he loves, that pays well and of course includes really good benefits.  Thanks guys!

Photos below are a few more excerpts from our summer in Seattle.  Please excuse all the foot shots. For some reason I am very fascinated with the shots.  No I’m not turning into Quentin Tarantino.

Summer For Reals

It’s hard to sum  up what I’ve been doing the past month.  Summer has definitely come and I’ve been out and about every single weekend. Not just the weekend, but also after work bbq’s and swimming in the lake.  I’ve been out so much that my body finally told me to slow down.  Which means, sniffles.  I’ve used up 2 boxes of tissues already and I’m still going.  Well I feel better today. And I hope that it’s completely gone by this weekend because I am definitely planning on going back into the water.

A few highlights I wanted to share with you guys…

Nick and I have been doing a lot of exploring of our neighborhood.  After work we’d go have a picnic where we can get the best view of the sunset.

Our church had a bbq in the church parking lot. There were music and dancing and we were all thankful that the sun showed up.

Little Michael and I. We were both laughing at a really funny joke.

One of the best things we’ve done this summer (so far) is go on a camping trip.  We had our own piece of lake. No one else was there. The sun graced us with its presence. We ate and swam and played a whole lot.

One can’t complain about where the tent was set up.

Yes, the water was that clear and refreshing.

I still have the skillz.

Nick and his raft. He built that himself and he was very proud of it.

It’s really great to be married to my best friend.

PS. I started doing bootcamp at the gym 3 times a week. Nick is graduating in a few weeks and I deactivated my Facebook. I shall write a post about that shortly. Now that I’m not wasting my time on Facebook. Ha!
