The Fancy of Spring

It’s early spring and the stirrings of the flowers can be felt as they wake up and make themselves known. Out in the garden, the sweet scent of newly mowed grass can be smelled, sending childhood memories into the senses. Of running into the backyard and playing with the dogs, splashing in the pool, and lazing in the hammock. The trees gently sway, as if saying, “Hello, come rest under our shade,” as they welcome you with all their majestic glory, each branch colored with bright hues and filled to the brim with flowers of different shapes. Their sugary smell inviting and thrilling as scenes of languid ecstasy fill the mind. The koi in the pond are swimming slowly, a sense of beckoning to partake in the joys of spring emanates from them. As these wonderful smells and scenes tease and tempt you, your hand slowly opens the latch of the door to the backyard and you go into a world of exquisite harmony, where nature and man are one and the same. You sit on a bench, taking in the scenery in front of you – of trees proud and tall, of iridescent pond and playful koi, of emerald dewy grass, and of the luxurious promise of rest the hammock is giving. Sipping your ice-cold sweet tea and your one hand opening a book, it feels like you have entered a world of magic, where calm and positivity radiates from every corner. A bee lazily buzzes about, looking for a fragrant flower as you open your book and become lost in its pages. From afar, a dog barks joyfully and comes bounding up to you, its tail wagging in recognition. It rests beside you as you gently stroke its head. Lazy afternoons in spring are a little slice of heaven, you think.

How are you? ^_^

Hello everyone! I know it has been a while since my last post and it was all about my book coming out soon. Yes, it has been delayed and I am coming to the reasons why. First reason is I’m sure all of you are all aware of by now and that is my battle with my manic depression. Not a good sight, I kid you not. Second reason is, I got married!!!!! I am now officially a MRS! 😀

My husband and I planned our wedding two years in advance but with school, my bouts with MD, finishing my book; updating my blog suffered the consequences.

Our Spring-themed wedding took place last April 18 at Fernwood Gardens in Quezon City. It was a lovely day despite some setbacks and I adored my gown, savored our food, enjoyed our cake, and laughed my heart out. Most especially, I was giddy with the fact that I was finally marrying my best friend, my partner in crime, and my soul’s mate.


Planning the wedding took up most of my time and it is not without its share of tears, sweat, joy, and triumphs. And, I got to meet Matt’s dad from Ohio. The whole Wisen family (Matt’s mom, older sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew) wanted to come but circumstances prevented them from doing so. Thanks to the internet, we were able to share our pictures and Same Day Edit Video with them immediately. Looking back, I could definitely say that it was the most unforgettable day of my life so far. But now that it is done I am finally able to focus on my book and I can’t wait to show you a preview! Thanks for your patience and for not leaving me while I was away for a number of months. I truly appreciate it ^_^
