Postcards from Around the World

I love blogging. I find joy in doing it. I can express my thoughts and feelings through it. I make new friends, learn new things. Blogging even helps me be more familiar with computer techniques and more. It's been four years since A friend of mine persuaded me to start and try blogging. Since then, I have come to love it. It became a hobby that is harder to break! From two six blogs now; I don't even know how I manage to maintain all six of them. With six blogs, I became a stay at home Mom who is now earning an extra money from making paid posts. Who would have thought that I'll make money doing my hobby? I'll say, that blogging has helped me a lot!

When you blog, there are many things you can do with your blog or website. You control everything. You can write whatever you want and posts whatever pleases you and your readers. Memes are my fave things to posts for they serve as an intermediate posts for the paid posts. I love meme, too! Anyway, a new meme has just started and it is about postcards where you will have to posts a postcard of a place from anywhere in the globe. I haven't join this meme yet but is planning to. First, I need to buy postcards online where they print them in any size and theme I want to. This website offers a lot of things, too aside from postcards; they also offer business cards and more.

GM: Our First House

This is our first house; hubby and I bought it six months after we got married. We were paying too much for our apartment rent and if we add two hundred bucks, then we can pay for a house payment. So, we took the first step and bought this house we so loved and adored. Sold it when we moved to VA due to hubby's job. I still miss this house though because of the memories we shared there....aside from the amount of time, money and efforts we put into it.

My share on Green Monday this week!

Elegant Fake Flowers and Plants

Flowers add beauty to homes, offices, hospitals, churches and anywhere you can think of. Fresh flowers are great, but they can be very expensive. Plus they didn't last long! They will be wilted in a couple of days or so. And when it is wilted, it is no good but needs be thrown down the trash can. I love flowers and house plants but they just die on me. I don't know what to do to keep them alive. My orchids was the first one that left me, then the fern followed by the miniature roses :-(. Good thing I still have the African violets, aloe vera and geranium.

Anyway, talking about fresh flowers, There is a place that sells Fake plant. But you will never noticed the plants are artificial because they don't look like one. Mainly because they are made on high quality material like silk and the finest materials. Faux flower will never wilt nor die. I like that it can be used over and over again and doesn't require maintenance. I don't have to worry of whom will water of it when I'll be out of town. I like the look of these fake flowers and plants for they look elegant! Plus the shape stays the same....and the color never fades.

GT: Cry Me a River

I still cry every time I hear or sing this song for it reminds me and my husband when we lost our first baby through stillborn. Every lyrics of this song is what exactly we felt when we were grieving for our lost. I remember thinking, "this is not real/true, this can't be happening, this isn't happening. I remember both of us crying out, I remember Matt crying out, I remember him holding me, and both of us sobbing." On that moment our bereaved life changes in the instant."I still cry every time I think of her... and blames myself for I think that it was all my fault why she died. The doctor tried to explain with me that it wasn't my fault or the things I did or didn't do.I love her so much! Though I know we would be able to be reunited with her someday, knowing that she not here, makes me feel empty still. She was back to Heavenly Father for a reason of which I don't know...but am sure she is happy that we are doing our here on earth just to be with her someday! I know that "Families Can Be Together Someday."

sung by: Rocket Club Band

I'll never get to hold you
I'll never hear your sweet voice sing
I'll never get to say 'I told you so'
I'll never read to you, or get to teach you anything
But you'll always be my hope
You'll always be my first light
You're always gonna be Daddy's little girl
You'll always be the strength I need to make it in this world
I only wish for one more day
I'm gonna miss your first day of school
I'll never see you turn that page
I'll never see you in your graduation gown
And I'm never gonna see you coming of age
But you'll always be my hope
You'll always be my first light
You're always gonna be Mommy's little girl
You'll always be the strength I need to make it in this world
I only wish for one more day
Sweet angel of mercy
Coming down to comfort me
Faith, sit right here beside me
I never want you to go away
I'm always gonna wonder how you'd look
Always gonna wish I took your place up there
You'll always be our hope
You'll always be our first light
You're always gonna be our little girl
You'll always be the strength we need to make it in this world
We only wish for one more day
We only wish for one more day."

Forgot the name of this :-(.
Geranium, hubby's fave.
The weeping tree.
Can't remember the name of it.

Thank You So Much CSN Store

This one of the items I have purchased at CSN stores; a laptop backpack. I really like it for it is very spacious. Great for traveling. Since we will be heading to P.I. this summer, I can put many things in it aside from my laptop. My son like it but it is too big for him.

Anyway, I'd like to thank for the $300 gift certificate/card. With it I was able to fulfill one of my hubby's wishes which to own a Dutch Oven, quite expensive but I was able to buy it for him :-)! CSN is an online store where you can buy almost everything you need/want. They sell brand name products for an affordable price...and the shipping if free both ways! I will definitely go back and buy stuffs from them again pretty soon. Visit their site and be amazed!

Green Monday: State Parks

My family and I loves outdoors. We like to camp, hike, picnic, and visit state parks. Yup, we are fan of nature! One of the park we visited recently was the Cedar Hill National Park. Here we enjoyed an old farm which is part of the park. Took many pictures and just enjoyed running and playing with all the green that surrounds us (trees, grasses, and garden).

Behind us is an old windmill...
My very first share on...
