LIFE is a DANCE if you take the STEPS. This is my DANCE. The story of my LIFE.

Dancing is moving to the music without stepping on anyone's toes, pretty much the same as life.

2014 Recap. A blast from my last years’ adventures!

on January 22, 2015

My apologies for the late post. Been very busy with everything lately; but I can’t stop the habit of posting my year-end recap every year. So here you go… enjoy reading my 2014 adventures 🙂


We started the year with a lot of ups and downs. Aidan got sick and when we went to his Pedia we were told to get a second opinion from a Pedia Cardiologist because she’s hearing murmur on Aidan’s heart. Yet God was so good because we were told that it’s not something serious and it’s normal.

Papa was hospitalized again and his left foot was amputated due to Diabetes complications. I had to rush home to be with him physically and emotionally. Thank God Papa was so brave and recovered very fast after the operation. I am also thankful that ADP allowed me to take a leave even If I’m not yet regularized.


I had my first wedding client for 2014.

  • Finally we were able to find a new home, but we can’t move in yet until April.
  • It’s Neneng’s first Prom. 🙂 Sad that I wasn’t there to do her Makeup. I sent her a dress instead for the Prom Night.


  • It’s our 5th Wedding Anniversary.
  • March 9- 5th Wedding Anniversary. We attended a mass and we brought Aidan to the Park in our Village to play. It’s just a simple Sunday with the Family. 🙂
  • March 9 – Aside from our Wedding Anniversary, it’s also my regularization in ADP. Time flies so fast.
  • Aidan graduated from Nursery. I’m such a proud Mom.
  • Toto (our youngest) graduated in Elementary.
  • March 19- For the first time and hopefully this wont happen again… naputukan ako ng pressure cooker and I had 2nd degree burn on my left hand.
  • It’s Aidan’s first time to watch a movie in a theater. We watched Captain America and he liked it. 🙂


  • Things are getting better. We finally moved to our Condo last April 16, 2014. We can really feel now that we are a family. We started buying our own household stuff. 🙂 At least now, we have something we can call our own.
  • New school for Aidan too. 🙂 I’m so thankful that he didn’t had a hard time coping with the changes.



  • Mothers Day celebration –The 3 of us watched Spiderman Movie.
  • We had to let go of our yaya who had been with us for more than a year because we realized na sinasaktan niya si Aidan. I felt bad that I cant protect my son inside my own house. It felt more bad that I can’t hurt the person because I don’t want her to take revenge over Aidan. So we decided to just let go of her and helped Aidan overcome what happened.
  • Dada’s 31st Birthday on May 25. We went to Nasugbo Batangas (BernaBeach Hotel) From May 21-23. It was a short vacation but we all had fun.



  • June 9 – Aidan’s first day at his new school.
  • I’m so happy because I was able to go home to Iloilo and spent papa’s 70th birthday. I was not there on the exact day of his Birthday because of work but we were able to celebrate it with the whole family before I left back to Manila.
  • June 19 – Papa finally had his Prosthetic leg. It’s gonna be another challenge for the old man to get used to his Prosthetic Leg.



  • Nothing really special happened this Month. 🙂


  • Aidan’s 5th Birthday. I organized a mini party at school. Its just pretty plain and simple.
  • We brought Aidan to Enchanted Kingdom for the first time. The Birthday boy was so happy. 🙂
