emeraldm Because you don't realize how often people eat until you have people that need to be fed. ALL. THE. TIME. Here's to the mamas who deserve a timeout. May we always enjoys the little things. Cherish muddy shoes and breathe in the sweet smell of playing outdoors. Thankful for all the women in my life that have and continue to influence me as we raise our two beautiful bebes. To the Titas, Ates, BFFs, sisters, teachers... All you all. 2w

emeraldm Mini adventure with my mini me. They mentioned earthquake relief on the radio this morning so we talked about it a little and I mentioned that many, many people were hurt and in need of help. She replies "How many people do you think were injured?" Oh my precious child. So she has decided to donate from her 'give' piggy bank to church and the fundraiser "so that they can have the same." We learn from the small ones with the big, generous hearts. 3w

emeraldm If you think you don't know anyone who has ever poked their eye with the corner of a freezer ziploc bag? Now you do. this girl. At least I got free antibiotics. Too bad the contact I had to wear wasn't one of those cool cat eye ones, although that probably would freak me out. Ayayay. #sothatshowwarninglabelsaremade Who Knew? 2mon

emeraldm Even death cannot separate us from those we love. They are always with us, carried in our hearts, felt in the sunshine, the fragrance of the flowers. We are surrounded by angels. Missing Lolo and Grandpa on such a glorious day. What a party it must be up there! Emily, our 5yo bringing flowers to her Lolo Eddie on Easter evening. Such a perfect end to a wonderful family day! 2mon

emeraldm Palm Sunday. When I was little and we were on a trip to the Philippines during Holy Week, my Kuya and I had headphones on, especially after almost a day long trek from Seattle, probably listening to our Walkmans. We were told that people weren't listening to music or watching tv... Most businesses were closed- in observation of Holy Week. I wonder how technology and everyone being "plugged in" has changed that. 2mon

emeraldm Often times, I can't wait to eat our mangoes... Cutting into one even though I know there's a possibility of it being too sour. But sometimes? It gets so busy that these beauties ripen to perfection and I am forced to stop, sit and enjoy! lest they wrinkle away and over ripen. #wearemangomonsters 2mon
