Thank you, 2010

  1. What an eventful year! Wow! I missed a lot because I haven't been blogging.

    I hope mine becomes eventful too starting next year. I often see myself as a person who likes going to different places here at home, within the country and out of the country. I hope I'll be a traveler by the time I am 40 (when my kid is quite all grown up). But the earlier the better too.

    Do you have a relative who is a PMA cadet? I used to work there.

  2. yes, travel with your kid :) I'm sure you guys will have a blast.

    My fiancé's dad graduated from PMA. We try to go up every year for the reunion.

  3. what a great year for you. More blessing to come for this year :)

  4. What a wonderful way to share your year! My sisters and I want to wish you a very Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year to you! We hope 2011 brings you more good things!!

  6. Your sister owns Belle and Cat pala? It's just beside my favorite jollijeep!

    Happy New Year, Kate!

  7. Thanks guys :)

    @Dea - Yay! Hope you can visit soon.

  8. What great remembrance of 2010! We love the picture of Beth's 29 cats. :)

    Happy New Year!

  9. Happy New Year,Kate! Cheers to more friends, more posts and more adventures we can share!

  10. Yay, you really had a blast of 2010! :) Ang dami mong napanalunang free ah! Yipeee!! :)
