Welcome, Yesterday

For the last 6 weeks Ed and I had been savoring the beauties and memories of our childhood. Ed had not been home for almost a quarter of a century (24 years) so I know this break is very exciting and meaningful to him. We toured most of the cities in Northern Luzon, where he is from and the south of Luzon where I am from. While my homeland has changed a lot, both politically and structurally, recalling and re-telling stories from our past have not. From the first few minutes of settling into one of my nephews' car until this very moment, stories haven't diminished. Everyday, a relative would come and another event from our yesteryears would suddenly evolve. And, the amazing thing about all this is we never get tired of it. Each day passes so fast I can't believe our vacation will soon be over in 5 days, to be exact! Then, I can really sit down and write about those unforgetable moments........

Hi Tita Prency. Hope you are taking advantage of your extended vacation. It was lovely seeing you. Been a little busy and haven't had a chance to visit again.

I'm glad we can always enjoy virtual visits on our blogs. Take care!

Hi Tita Princess, glad to know you've enjoyed your Manila vacation. My hubby is also from the north, the Cagayan Valley. Such a long trip noh.
