Pray. Eat. Love.

Yes, in THAT order please, counting them as blessings instead of constantly searching for life's meaning through it. 

I've always loved Julia Roberts, but sadly never this movie. 
And at 36, I am blessed to have His wisdom to not #EatPrayLove like her soul-searching character. It's easy to get caught up, feel empty & senseless in this crazed, material, egocentric, ever-searching world, endlessly finding meaning in life through soooo many 'fillers'...when in truth, we know there only is one way. 

Look within and not at the other fence. 
The grass is greener where you water it.
So it is with our faith and life's meaning. 
The journey to my inner peace & happiness is in 
embracing my faith in Him, in a silent little corner 
where I can have my own #PrayEatLove journey, 
thank Him as the source for all these simple joys 
and enjoy each of life's blessing thrown in. 

Have a Thought-full Tuesday, my dear ladies. 
It's been quite a while. 

3 year-long hiatus from this blog journal and I miss sharing bits of inspiration with you!

Yesterday, I was blessed to have had the chance to have some me-time  
with another blissful mommy blogger who I met only thru social media. 
We chatted about blogging, and our passions & bloggers who inspire us. 
It's just amazing how two women's path bump in awesome ways 
to empower each other & to keep finding bliss in the simple things that bring us joy. 

Been praying to find inspiration through a mom community who shares the same passion. I truly hope this is the beginning of some beautiful things ahead.

Just Another Yesterday {Day 23: 365}

Where has the pinkmother gone?

Oooh how i miss journaling! Did time pass me by? Another blink brings me to March. Unbelievable how time swishes from now to tomorrow. Surreal, but today will just be another yesterday.

So, how have your yesterdays been?

I'd love to know.

Apart from the bliss of moving ahead, our life in retrospect is always worth going back to...

As for me, my past month -- in random order of appreciation -- looked something like this:

 ♥buying trip with hubby...{giddy for the new collection}♥

♥brainstorm sessions with the creative team for the first of summer trunkshow (!!!)♥

♥new layout for online shop now up♥

♥organizing my girls craft nook♥ 

♥getting my fat thighs back to the gym♥

♥sweetness from my only son♥

♥summer trip planning & hotel scouring on the net {foreverrr!}♥

♥getting a visit from Pastor Sam...{blessings in human form}

♥fabric stashing for my first swimsuit creation! {yipee}♥

♥Numbers App on my iPad...{why oh why did it take me so long to give in to you?!}♥

♥giddiness over a thrifted designer document bag...{ funny how it gave me 30% extra power to do more things }♥

♥my yllana turning 9 & my girls newfound love for boots & boho♥

♥and a new set of heels to go running in for the coming busy months♥

That's it so far. Would love to hear how yours have been. 

bliss♥, pinkmother

Random Resolutions {Day 22: 365}

Today, I suddenly woke up with an instant punch of motivation after getting pretty much inspired with this Mom of  i♥organizing and how she keeps her life & her home so neatly organized. And so I figured out that if I wanted to stay START being organized, I'd rather begin by getting my 2012 resolutions in place. After all, its still the 1st month of the year, right? So I guess this can still be counted in as a decent New Year's Resolution list? And hey, its a Friday, my favorite day! And the 13th -- my lucky number! Geez. What a perfect day to start my 2012.  

And speaking of perfect days, just today too, I'm greeted with 5000 views! 5000, yes. That may be a speck  in the professional blogging sense but to me who started this online journal having just 3 solid followers in mind (my daughter Yllana, my solid fan Alex & embarrassingly, myself!), a thousand views is pretty much something already to me. Five times more, a blessing. So, to those of you who bothered to click despite busy days, or well, out of sheer boredom...Thank You. But seriously and truly, I am just humbled & proud all at the same time. ♥

So, yes, perhaps this must be just the perfect day to start my 2012, claim my year and get my life resolutions in place. In no certain order of preference, nor importance, nor priority. But resolutions just waiting to be ticked off one day at a time.

So here it is, drumroll please, 
My Random Resolutions for 2012! 

{get to know my Silhouette better}
{make better homemade cafe lattes}

{pump up my scrapbook area} 
{pump up my scrapbook area & actually scrap!}

{conquer my "micro-phobia" & sing with my BFFs in videoke ( resolution since birth!)}

I could go on and on with these random resolutions. 
But that's going to bore you for sure.

So, I'm simply summing up this year's resolutions into words I could live by. 


Less. Yet More. Simple. Yet Better. 
last year's: 

Let me close by inviting you to join me in my journey and walk along with me thru these simple words. 
Or recreate your own and enjoy each step of the way in getting nearer and nearer to your goals.

However way you choose to walk your 2012, let me know.
