Our Ring

I’m the type who doesn’t like to wear jewelries when I was young. I used to hate cosmetics too but that’s a different story.

I was very surprised when @inomon asked me to marry him. It’s not because I didn’t think that he would be the one, but because after all that my parents have been through, I couldn’t believe that someone would like to be with me for the rest of his life.

I knew for a fact that I’m not the best person in the world. I tend to be so insecure about the other girls around him because someone as nice as him deserves someone who will always be there for him, take care of him and reciprocate everything that he does. I’m far from that perfect person and I’m trying my best to be that person every day.

It is not the ring that I’m showing you. I’m letting you know that despite who I’ve become, this guy never fails to forget what I like and who I am.

This ring is a proof that he knows that I don’t like traditional or trendy stuff. He knows that I want to be unique and he chose this for me because he knows me and respects what I want or what I like. It may not be as grand as the mainstream engagement rings in this day and age, but it is the best and most valuable to me.

He still remembers the little things. From that book in NBS Gateway in 2009 up to this special ring that he gave me on the Christmas Eve of 2015, I know that he will be the last boyfriend that I will have.

I would just like to remind myself that this simple guy loved me ever since I met him and I’m thankful that I met him a month after my college graduation. That someone loves me and is willing to spend his lifetime with me using his own hard work and efforts. That no matter how hard we fought, how deafening our silence is, he is still the same guy who never gave up on me for over 6 years and 9 months.

He’s the one that I’ve prayed for. My answered prayer and my forever love (c/o Chanel.)

My 2015

It’s been a long time since I wrote anything here. And now that I’m back, I’d like to express my gratitude to everyone that I’ve met this year.

It’s not only the people that I’ve met that I’m thankful for. I am also treasuring the good times and the bad times that I have experienced all throughout the year.

Life was indeed a roller coaster ride. It was a journey.

From my numerous trials and defeats in becoming a Team Leader, to becoming a soon-to-be-wife. Who would have thought that I would be engaged on Christmas Eve? In front of Ino’s family, he asked for my hand in marriage, and since I’ve been waiting for it for the longest time, I teary-eyed said YES to him.

I couldn’t really summarize how my 2015 went. Regina got married with Paolo on November 14. Kelly was baptized in October. The team in the office was reshuffled in┬áNovember as well.

I met a lot of people. I spent the whole year with the person I love. It took him 6 years, 7 months and 2 days to realize that he really wants me to be a part of his life forever.

Thank you for everyone who became a part of my life. Thank you for those who are still sticking around. Thank you, Lord for everything that you have given me and my loved ones.

And yeah, I am not confused with my faith anymore. I’m planning to go back to church and hear mass regularly again. I guess that’s one of the things that I’d like to do in starting the year right.

Thank you to everyone. I’m sorry to those that I’ve hurt.
