hello from this dreary part of the philippines

First of all, thank you to the boyfriend for the drawing. It’s not the Totoro painting I asked (ungrateful much? Haha!), but it definitely made me smile. You are so good at digital painting, babe, I HATE YOU. I kid, I kid.

Our internet connection is still temperamental. Good thing it behaved long enough for me to upload some photos of last night’s event. Here is my favorite:

tired bride

And here are the shoes I wore to the wedding. I had planned on wearing the black ballet flats but I met up with Gizelle before heading to the airport to claim these brogues. They’re pretty and comfortable so I opted to wear them instead.

In the middle of the night, I got an SMS from the boyfriend. “Eight pairs of Oxford shoes?! Relax, woman!”

small town weddings

I’m from the province. My town is the type that you can explore on foot in a couple of hours. We are not talking about a joyful exploration, though, because really, there is nothing to see here.

Don’t get me started on the things people here consider strange.

I had planned on wearing this gifted floral dress for today’s wedding but I’ll have to go with the second look.

I want to avoid unnecessary looks. Also, the second outfit is more forgiving on the tummy area. The wedding will most likely be followed by a reunion with high school classmates where we will be playing catch up over food so yeah, we don’t want a fitting dress.
