Today Nic and I woke me up extra early on a holiday, of all days lol. He said he wanted to get something to eat for breakfast, I found this ironic because last night he kept me up pretty late lol. But I said yes anyways.
I had no idea where we were going, so it was a complete surprise when we pulled up at my mare Lj’s house.
When I got there, Nic lead me up the stairs and there they were, my mares: Ember, Maricar, Lj, Oz, and Joy (and later on Cherry). These women are among the women that have been there for me through it all. Through the years being in the Philippines these women have been my strength. And seeing them all together brought back a flood of memories.
They had a cute setup ready: two tables, a breakfast buffet, and decorations everywhere. we sat and caught up over breakfast. A lovely way to spend my monday morning.
After eating we went inside and played games. The first one was “Remember the Baby Essentials”. Ember had a tray of baby things, she gave us about five minutes to remember what was on it. After five minutes was up, she hid it, and we wrote down all that we remembered on a piece of paper.
Then we played “Guess The Price” of the baby essentials. Let’s just say babies can be super expensive!
And then it was present time!
I just want to say thank you to the amazing women that put this all together and made everything possible! I am overwhelmed with joy. Love you guys!
