Meet these Darling ladies!!

Hey Darlings,
Happy November 1st! This is a very special month for me because it is this little girl's Birthday Month!!!
Can you believe it??? I have started  A weekly series dedicated just for her this month! Come by Monday to catch some baby fever ;)

Speaking of special ladies!! I would like to introduce  you to some of my Darling Sponsors for this Month. I'm so looking forward to getting to know these ladies even more! They are amazing.

1. What is your favorite post you have written and why?    

My series of posts on love and waiting are my favorites.  When I started this walk with The Lord, He has showed what true love really is. He has given me hope amidst the lies of the world. I believe all ladies have desire to love,be loved and have an epic love story. How wonderful would it be if they would just know that Someone loves them so much and is willing to give them the best romance ever if they would just let Him. As I continued to seek Him and experience His love, He also planted in me the desire to also share it, most especially to the young people. When I wrote this series of posts, it was public declaration of my committing to the Lord and to my future husband. I hope that it will also encourage all who read it.

2. If you could visit any place in the world, that you haven't visited yet, where would it be and why?
I love to travel and so I'm thrilled to answer this question! If I had to pick one destination (which would be difficult!) the first place that came to my mind was the highest peak in the Philippines, Mt. Apo. I love climbing mountains as much as I love relaxing at beaches. The adventure it provides is just so amazing. And it is a great example of our life-- the climb is hard, we fall, we get hurt, collect wounds and eventually scars, but when you get to the top everything will be worth it!

3. Where do you get your blogging inspiration?
I post from my everyday life  and random thoughts to reflections from the scripture. I have ideas with me inspired by the little things that I encounter every day (which reminds me, I should blog more often now!) and I always hope that my blog posts will be encouraging and fun for my readers :)

 About Me

 1. What is your favorite post you have written and why?

I've written so many, in my opinion, but I think this was a favorite. There's a great link up on Tuesday's that I love joining every week. I havent been one to really get into cooking and trying things. My mom usually makes all the meals but after starting to join this link up and post recipes every week, I've been more inclined to help my mom and ask how to make things so I can do it on my own. This was a recipe everyone thought was really unique.

2. Where do you get blogging inspiration?

From everywhere, to be honest. I had an idea of what I wanted the "theme" of my blog to be when I first started it back in February but then I realized the most thoughtful and fulfilling posts are those that come from little or no thought and mostly person experience. I may not post about DIYs, fashion, makeup or anything of the sort but that's because I love pouring out my inspiration on others. I'd prefer to write a serious and personal post everyday and hope that somewhere somehow I am inspiring and encouraging. I know most bloggers prefer the "in" things but for me, being able to make someone smile is so worth it

3. If you could visit any place in the world, that you haven't visited yet, where would it be and why?

I'd love to visit any of those amazing places the Bachelor and Bachloretts go to during the last few weeks of the shows. It's always unbelievable to see how amazing these places are and it always makes me think that if I did go there they wouldnt be that glamorous. It would be such a once in a life time opportunity!

Favorite memories of pregnancy.

Dearest Evelynne,
It's so hard for me  to believe that you will be one in less than a month now.. I remember this time last year I was so ready to meet you, to hold you and to kiss you all day long.. I couldn't wait to finally see who you looked like.. Would you look like you daddy or mama? or have your very own look? I often thought about things like this.

Being pregnant with you was such an amazing experience.. Though the morning sickness, back pains, and all the unpleasant experiences were not favorable over all I loved being pregnant with you and I did my best to enjoy it.. Feeling you kick, hiccup, move around. It was all such a blessing..And I miss it much more than I thought I would.
 I have so many memories of my pregnancy with you.. And one of the biggest ones was when you were prophesied to be a worshiper.. I remember that day like it was yesterday. And you know what? I already knew that God had big plans for you to become a worshiper. Because you loved music..Particularly worship and classical. Sometimes you were so still during a song that you barely moved (which didn't happen often) and other times you were jumping and moving around. It put so much joy in my heart being a worshiper as well. I just know you will lead millions to Jesus with the anointing on your voice..

I also remember the day when I first felt you move inside of me.. It was so sudden while I was laying on the bed. I remember waiting to feel you finally move so I could feel you. and ever since you took that huge step of moving you haven't stopped since. I'm so thankful that you are an active child.

I had such a connection with you! A connection I know is even stronger now. I remember talking with you all the time, praying with you and reading to you.. I believe even then you could tell the difference between praying and talking. I believe even then it impacted you because now I know you know the difference. you could be crying when I put you to sleep and when I start praying for the most part you usually become silent as I pray.. You know how important it is and I just know that prayer is and will continue to be a huge part of your life.

I loved watching your dad react to you too! He loved rubbing my tummy as we sat there and talked to you. It was his daily highlight considering he was put through some major tough stuff during the academy. He'd talk to you and tell you how much he loved you.. And boy did he love seeing you move!

When I was pregnant I felt like it went by so slow.. Particularly towards the end..But now that you're here and so close to being one I realized just how fast it came in went... It's almost been a whole year since I had a little life growing inside of me. And boy am I so blessed that  little life was you.. I thank God for you everyday and I just can't fathom how loved and blessed we really truly are to raise you, teach you and watch you grow up.. I love you my Piglet!
