woman watching TV Hi! How are you all doing? I'm doing pretty fabulous! Other than the fact that my blog just recently turned 1 and we have an ongoing $250 Nordstrom gift card giveaway (don't forget to enter if you haven't yet), I had updated my blog's logo to convey what my site is really all about. I immediately fell in love with it the moment I saw it! What do you think? This update wouldn't have been possible if not for my dear friend, Haydee Gusler. She also did social media banners to match the new logo! How awesome is she? Her graphic designs are impressive and she also does motion graphics! If you need any graphic work done, she's the right woman for the job!!! Check out all her amazing designs here. Anyway, since this is my first post after celebrating my first blog anniversary, I want it to be about something I love. Today, I will be sharing why This Is us is so relatable for everyone; it doesn't matter if you're a mom, dad, wife, husband, daughter, or son; you'll surely get hooked once you watch it.

One Awesome Momma 1st blog anniversary - woman wearing Express chambray shirt, Cest Ca New York tulle skirt, fuchsia Sam Edelman heels, Tiffany & Co sunglasses, holding a number 1 balloon When I started thinking about how much I wanted to start blogging over a year ago, I didn't know what I was going to write about. It wasn't until one afternoon a couple of months later, completely out of the blue, when it suddenly hit me. I would like to share my love of fashion, the struggles I've overcome and how I came out of them as a better person, and the lessons I've learned and have been learning as a mom (and as a person). And on that same day, an absolute spontaneity, my blog was born. It started as a hobby - something I did just because I had the time; I didn't think I was going to enjoy it. But as the days went by, I found myself loving every bit of it; enough that I am actually making time for it; while I've been struggling to make time for myself. How ironic is that? I guess that's how you really know you love what you're doing! Today, I am celebrating One Awesome Momma's 1st year blog anniversary!

couple, man kissing girl on the forehead If you think a successful relationship is based on hard work, you are probably right. By introducing a couple of new activities and shaking up your everyday routines, your relationship will flourish. If you focus on what’s wrong it should be in an attempt to fix it. Don’t dwell too much on the negative stuff, shift some of that focus to introducing some novelties in the relationship. Research shows that this has a much better impact on your happiness as a couple. So, here are some things that can fortify your relationship and bring you closer to your partner.

76th & Newbury personalized art for house decoration or gift for any special occasion, family travel map log I adore anything personalized. If you've seen my son's first birthday party, you'll see that I had most of the decorations, even his outfit, personalized. Whenever we'd go home to Manila, I'd have something made that's personalized for my kids if not for our family, like our family hand print on a ceramic plate. I treasure every memory I've made (and yet to make) with my family, and having something personalized captures that perfect moment and ensures that we'd be able to look back years from then and remind us how happy we were or little the kids were at that moment.

woman with a guitar playing a song I love music and I can definitely say that music has been a huge part of my life. I remember back when I was younger, I would turn to music either when I was happy or sad; especially when I was heartbroken. There's something about hearing someone sing some words accompanied by a melody that makes it so heartfelt and extremely relatable. I absolutely remember I used to cry while listening to a song when I was trying to mend a broken heart; while I used to feel really in love and happy when I was listening to cheery songs. And for some people, music has become their way of expressing how they feel which is why people write songs.

Every Thanksgiving, I always say that I'm thankful for family, friends, and all those kinds of serious stuff. That has been always true but this year, to make it fun, I've decided to turn the spotlight on to the little things that I am thankful for this year. Hot showers - Growing up in Manila where having water heaters isn't a necessity but a luxury, I take comfort in the fact that the water I am showering...
