08.11.2014: Welcoming Change
Hello, dolls!!! 🙂 Happy hump day! I woke up today with a weird feeling about today. I’ve been telling A how we have to embrace change if we want to grow. Although it hurts to move on from some of the things that we learned to appreciate, we have to leave room for better and bigger things. So I told myself that I can’t have a weird mood all day, so I claimed that we will receive good news before the day ends, and we did!!! A and I just looked at each other with utter amazement after that phone call that we received 5 min before we left our apartment. It’s a blessing right in front of our face, and all I can say is…great things happen those who believe in Him 🙂
I love how this week started, each of us received good news and boy are we excited!!! So anyway, here’s a post that will surely help me stay warm tonight. Cause you know….thinking about summer helps me forget about the cold weather…even for just a while 😉
aside from wearing light clothes….
I also miss the abundance of fresh produce during summer.
I miss having this farm stand truck 5 min away from us.
and all the varieties of fruits and vegetables I can choose from
reminder from Trader Joe’s
What’s in my Trader Joe’s bag
sushi lunch special for me and tonkatsu for the babe
tomatoes, eggplant, peach, and plums
Oh the amazing things that we did with all the fruits and veggies that we bought over the summer <3
My eggplant lasagna with pesto
Delicious layers of tomato sauce, pesto, and cheese.
Summer is also the perfect season for my basil pesto. Basil is not very hard to find AND inexpensive.
My white chocolate cheesecake with blueberry compote
When I think of blueberries I see summery desserts. Although it is also good as an additional ingredient to a savory dessert.
So to make my cheesecake even more delicious, I cooked some blueberries in agave and blackcurrant sparkling drink.
Some days I give in to my love for black clothes
Just in time for football season
I am very lucky to have siblings who loves to make me smile (I am claiming it haha). My family would often send me care packages when I am away from them. They always send me clothes because they know I love dressing up! I still buy clothes from online sellers in the Philippines through my sister haha.
But ClothingRackMNL and OurOnlineCloset on Instagram has got to be my 2 favorite online shops! 🙂
