04.22.2015: First Day of Forever
Hello, dolls! Hello, August!! The past 3 weeks have been very eventful. This is my first summer with full weekends off. We’ve been saying “yes” to most invitations because we can now. It feels great to be able to plan things ahead of time because we know we can actually go on adventures without going through hoops just to get decent days off. Our weekends are booked until September 9 — so it has been pretty crazy since July 29 (and I am loving it!).
So a month ago I started rewatching One Tree Hill. I can’t believe that I still remember most of the episodes, most especially how it’s a decade-year-old!! Meaning, I graduated high school 10 years ago!!! I remember watching OTH and almost missing my graduation practice. I realized that majority of the songs and artists on my playlist were from OTH. I find myself singing in every episode!!
I know we are still 8 months away from our anniversary but life has been really great for our little family lately. Each day reminds me of the feeling I had the day after our wedding.
Our morning view.

Angelfield’s Tarragon Tea
I am not a big fan of this tarragon tea. We all thought that the tarragon was too overpowering for a cup of water. Less tarragon would make this really good!
Century tuna for breakfast is love!!!!!! <3 #SimpleJoys
We had Angelfield’s all to ourselves. All the rooms were cozy and being in a sanctuary made us feel relaxed before and after the wedding.
Angelfield’s will forever be special!!! <3
One of the best things about April 22? Waking up and knowing that we have the rest of our lives to go on adventures together.
Probably the only time we will all ride the jeepney together. On our way up to the Palace in the Sky.
Everyone enjoyed the cool breeze and amazing view!
Missing my Batutsy!!!! <3
Especially because he takes perfect Instagrammable pictures of me! lol
taho is life!!!
As baby A would say “vroom vroom!!”
Lunch with a view
My brother Renzo suggested RSM Lutong Bahay. I am glad that we tried something new as a family.
Fresh Buko Juice, please!!!! <3
One of my favorite things to eat when I am in the Philippines. Crispy fried tawilis!!
Inihaw na Pusit
All time favorite!!!
A meal is not complete without 2 servings of rice per person! lol
Who else agree that the bagoong is the best part? haha
Our trip to Tagaytay will not be complete without bulalo!!
…and crispy pata.
Veggies to “balance” all the meat on our table.
Anther favorite!!! I was finally able to make A try goat!!!
…and of course, sisig!!!!
I pretty much eat sisig every day when I am in the Philippines. #HelloCalories
First adventures as Mr. and Mrs. Stavrides!! <3
